A Bucket Full of Fun

A boys childhood would not be complete without the simple toy of army men.  A bucket full of army men can provide hours of fun.  It is the simple things in life that truly make a young boy happy.  The simple pleasure of watching your son use his creative abilities, imagination, pretend, explore...that's what truly makes a mommy happy.

Yesterday we received record breaking snowfall.  The official amount ended up being 21 inches with up to 8 foot snow drifts.  We were pretty much forced to stay inside all day due to the blizzard conditions.  However, later in the afternoon after the snow stopped falling, we did get out some, but not for long- it was so cold!  The boys loved being out in the deep snow- but were very ready to come inside and thaw out after only 15 minutes or so.

First Snow Day of the Year {January 10, 2011}

***I am just now journaling the snow day that we had back in January due to some issues getting my pictures off of my camera.

The first snow day of the year was January 10.  There wasn't very much snow, but the boys made the best of it and had a few snowball fights.  These pictures were taken while the snow was still falling.  My camera battery died so I didn't get any pictures after there was more snow.

It's kind of crazy looking at these pictures with the "limited" amount of snow on the ground.We are currently snowed in because of the Oklahoma Blizzard of 2011.  The snow I can see out my window right now make this seem like nothing.
