See This?

This is what I woke up to this morning.......




And these were the kids about 2.8 seconds after finishing breakfast....




And about 10 minutes later, it looked like this......




And then they came inside after making this.......



And about 30 minutes later, it looked like this outside....




AND IT"S STILL SNOWING!!!! *sigh* I'm missing Savannah weather right about now. lol Although, I do believe this calls for the Donny Osmond Christmas music to come on out! ;)-



But before all this craziness happened, we were able to take a trip down to Utah over the past few days and had a good time! We took a quick trip up the Provo canyon to catch some fall pictures, but only to find that most of the color had already gone. We did get to see the waterfall though- and the kids were excited since they've never seen one.






And yesterday we took the kids to Temple Square in Salt Lake. It was so fun, way cold, but fun. THe kids had never been, so it was fun to see their reaction to everything. Brought back some fun memories- this is where Rick and I got married. ISn't it beautiful? There were couples getting married and taking pictures while we were there, it was fun to reminisce. :)




And one last note... we had a fun weekend last weekend with our semi-annual General Conference for our church. Our whole family gathered in the living room to watch and adding to that was my brothers girlfriend. This is Mindy- she is so sweet and awesome. She'll make a wonderful sister-in-law. ;)- hahahahaha!!!!
Oh- this is called the LOVE SACK. literally. it's said to be able to hold 6 people at once. At one point, there were 6 people on it. lol---- can you tell my bro. is a little twitterpated in this pic?!

But isn't this the best picture ever? loved how it captured everyone so perfectly. we have good times here. :)
And yet there is more. Yes more I said. But I'll save that for another day. Right now, I have to go eat and get myself warm because IT'S FREEZING here. lol

Oh, Lily would love that snow, but I am perfectly happy with our 80 degree weather. We were cold yesterday morning when it was 60 - it is all relative I guess. Looks like you guys are doing well :).

Oh, Amber, that is so wonderful! Thanks for sharing!

Ok, my initial reaction was to laugh at your expense (how rude am I?!), but I'm actually a little jealous. Look how happy those babies are in the snow! And I admit, I do miss seasons. It feels so much more like the holidays are coming with some cool, crisp weather. I don't think I'd be ready for snow just yet, but it does look fun. We're still in short sleeves and capris here... I'm ready for my fall clothes to come out! Sigh. Love those happy times with the family too!! Glad y'all are enjoying it there!

Look at that snow!! Holy cow, that's just craziness. :) I am SO happy that you're back home and lovin' life. And I'm so glad I don't have to be subjected to DOnny Osmond's Christmas, ha!

Savannah weather? It has been raining for the past week. Snow would be a great way to shange it up. glad you are having fun.

Oh I love Bridal Veil Falls. I went there just a couple days ago with my kids & they LOVED it! They fall colors didn't stay around for long this year- unfortunately.

That snow looks so fun!! My family goes to Flagstaff every January to play in the snow for a day, I am like you I don't like the cold but I can handle it for one day but I HAVE to have some hot chocolate with me. Glad to see the kids are loving the snow!
