Snowmen, Snowladies and Snow Cakes

Today was a much needed day of nothing in the Clark family.  We're all (mostly) healthy again.  We made it back alive from Boston yesterday, where we drove through a snow storm and had moments where we didn't know how we were going to make it back to Fairfield.  But, we made it, and promised each other that today had no obligations.  We did what we love to do; we stayed in our pajamas for most of the day; we had pancakes and coffee and apple juice all morning; some of us watched football while others napped; we enjoyed new Christmas toys and read and listened to music; we played in the snow; we loved every minute of our Sunday.  Well, Jack didn't really love the snow too much and lasted about five minutes before coming back in and keeping me company.

Not a bad way to end 2012.

Jack didn't like his boots, didn't like falling over in the snow, and really, really didn't like his mittens.  

Very proud of their snowlady!

time for snow balls!

much happier to be back inside :)
I love this one 
Next came the mini snowman, for Jack!

....and this is Lilly's snow cake! 

"Da-aaa"...Jack's little expression whenever he wants you to hold something.
One of my favorites!!  When Papa stayed with us, he taught Jack how to put his "armies up high" and then "tickle, tickle, tickle".  So now, Jack does it to himself!  He puts his arms up in the air, and then tickles his tummy and starts laughing :)

Who doesn't love a snow cake with sprinkles?
