Snow Delay...again

Ethan drew this picture for us a couple weeks ago. See if you can find the bee, grass, airplane, and sunshine. Emma drew the flower.
We're having our second snow delay for school - 2 hours - in as many weeks. It's not that there is a ton of snow on the ground, but enough the plows can't keep up. The cool thing about snow at night with a full moon is it never really gets dark. You could walk around at 1am and still see everything like twilight.

Christmas

The kids were bent on making gingerbread men with grandma. Afterward Isaac says, "I know how to cook. I made gingerbread with Grandma." In this picture, everyone is preparing a special treat that Gma used to share with her Grandmother...cinnamon sugared pie crust. Yum.
Isaac wasn't much for pictures this Christmas. Cozy and Ethan are showing off Santa's cookies and chocolate milk. Santa sent Cozy a voice message that especially requested chocolate milk this year. We also gave an apple to the reindeer.
This is Rob's new favorite hat - it's an Aussie hat!
Aunt Sara and Aunt Nicole made the kids superhero capes and Cozy a crown and bracelets. Ethan ran around shouting "I am super Ethan!"
To break up Christmas day, we took a walk up Red Hill to show off the Pocatello Valley to Gma and Gpa. It was a nice excursion. Isaac had to bring his new monster truck. All the kids received a water bottle holder and Isaac's showing his off here.
New Year's Eve was low key for the Wood family. Cozy went to Salt Lake with her cousins while Rob, Emma, and the boys stayed in watching movies and a friend's baby so they could head to the theater.
