We were dumped on

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas . . .
This past weekend it snowed and snowed and snowed.
It was gorgeous.

Theodore and I watched it come down.
And now it's cold.
Like 10 degrees . . . Fahrenheit. Brrrrrrr.

When the downpour slowed down I chose not to brave it, but Henry couldn't be stopped.
He was anxious to get out. He loved it.
Theo and I encouraged him from inside.
"Henry, try crawling in it . . . okay, stomp around a bit . . . oops, that's okay, get back up again!"
Eventually he kind of whitewashed himself and that was E-nough.

As he changed out of his snow gear he whisper-yelled, "Mom, it's ffffffffffreezing cold out there!"
I put up decorations, we watched the First Presidency Christmas devotional, we ate peanut brittle and ginger thins, drank hot chocolate and read Christmas stories.
Everyday now Henry exclaims, "It's Christmas time!"
Oh, and what a magical time it is.

Wasn't that devotional amazing. I loved it!

Theo is so cute and just a little guy! He is adorable. I love the funny things toddlers say. He cracks me up!

I can't wait to see you guys at Christmas time. I can't wait to but Eli and Theo next to each other and see how much bigger Eli is to Theo.
