Learning how to cook spaghetti.  (1/3/17)

Our budding chef prepares her first entire dinner.  (1/3/17)

The snow came to us.  (1/4/17)

Throwing a snowball at Quinn.  (1/4/17)

Rolling up the perfect giant snowball -- which invariably got smooshed, so we built a column of snow to replace it.  (1/4/17)

Snowman Kevin.  (1/4/17)

Stopping to make a snow angel.  (1/4/17)

How else to end a snow day?  (1/4/17)

The snow's still here!  Although, it's much more icy.  We walked to the corner store and had a snack of fresh banana bread.  (1/5/17)

By his fourth day, Kevin isn't looking so good.  His eyes have fallen out, and his nose is coated in ice.  (1/7/17)

"Aha, oho, a track in the snow.  Whose is this track?  And where does it go?"  (1/7/17)

The site of an epic snow battle.  While the kids threw snowballs at each other, their dad spelled out letters in the snow:  "SNOW."  When the kids noticed the letters, Wesley thought it spelled his name, and Elaine was confused as to why her dad would spell out "MONS."  (1/7/17)

Elaine named this snowball Samantha and brought it home to store in the freezer.  (1/7/17)
