Snow Day!!!

White Christmas!!! I pray this snow stays until then. It was so beautiful to wake up to the sparkling white snow before it was disturbed by snow plows and foot prints. The kids could not wait to get out and play in the fluffy white winter surprise. After about 15 min getting everyone bundled up, they finally ventured out. Surprisingly it wasn't too cold out, especially when running around. Eli was a bit scared at first. Though curious he was a bit apprehensive of the snow. Once he realized he was safe and it was just wet and cold, he had a blast. Gracie had to completely immerse herself in it and made a couple snow angels. Emma was loving playing w/ Eli and thought it was funny to throw snowballs at her brother and sister. After about 45 minutes outside they came in to warm up, took off their snow garb, had a cookie....and yes! nap time. It's a beautiful time of year!

Christmas Time

It's Christmas time here at the Rison's. We have been busy shopping, wrapping, baking, and cleaning (altough you can't really tell). The kids are so excited and ready for Santa. Emma made a custom cookie just for Santa, and Gracie's loving all the Christmas shows, Eli loves to throw his toys in the tree! This season goes so fast so I am really trying to slow down and enjoy it all! Merry Christmas!
