Snow...

Snow, wind and COLD! That was the theme for this weekend..... We had rain all day on Saturday and then the snow came. By Sunday morning we had about 4 inches of the white stuff on the ground and these kiddoes just HAD to go out and play in it for over an hour....
Our weekend also included a basketball game for Luke-- and Mom, Ben and Luke working the concession stand afterward. We sold lots of hot dogs and nachos with cheese!!! Here's a picture of Luke from the game.....

Prankster....

Ben got out of school early today and decided to surprise the little kids as they got off of the bus...clearly, you can see him hiding behind the bushes ready to attack with snowballs....
Here are the unsuspecting victims.......

Here's the gang when they finally figured out what was going on....
and he kept firing at them....
I think they actually enjoyed it....but don't tell anyone....
