No - that is not a typo (although we did make lots of snowballs for another massive snowball fight). I would like to announce that Mr. Snowman met a wonderful snow-woman and made 2 beautiful snow-babies. Introducing, the SnowBulls....(and yes, Patrick is trying to make out with his)

The neighborhood kids came over and played for almost 3 hours today! What a fun time :-) The snow was perfect again for snowman making and snowball fights! This time, the kids did all the snowman making. They added pig tails to Evelyn's and my snowwomen (as hair) and gave Patrick and Gavin tails (hey...I was just happy they put the sticks on the BACK side of the guys :-)

We plan on adding some faces later, but it started getting dark and the kids were getting cold (okay, I was the one getting cold). But we also had a great snowball fight, shoveled the driveway, played in the igloo and fort, and thoroughly enjoyed this amazing snowfall we have been getting. We are supposed to get more tomorrow too - so it should be another fun day at the Bull's!

And boys will be boys...

While we were over at Ashli's house yesterday, we noticed a similar pattern with the boys playing...

I guess it doesn't matter what the weather is, boys will be boys!

Thanks Ash, for capturing this :-)

Top 10

These are the top 10 things I loved about this weekend:

10. Watching Patrick take over 30 minutes to try to fix the tv screen (the channel number was staying lit in the corner), which took Evelyn 3 seconds to mess up.

9. Being surprised by the amount of snow we had, and getting a chance to go outside and play for hours on end with the kids.

8. Having kids that LOVE being out in the cold and not whining that they are cold or want to go back in...I had to drag them inside to eat.

7. Building a 6+ feet tall snowman with the kids and Angie's family.

6. Having our friends, The Simpsons (Autumm, Alex, Alexa, Packy and Olivia), come over when their power went out for a fun day in the snow.

5. Making breakfast from scratch for all of us and making soup in the crock pot so the house smelled yummy all day.

4. Having a massive snowball fight between the daddys vs. all the rest of us.

3. Patrick making a fort/igloo with a tunnel/slide inside so the kids could play.

2. Sleeping in until after 8 each morning.

1. Having the kids be so tired from the snow that they crashed before their bedtimes and Patrick and I were able to watch scary movies that required lots of snuggling :-)
