Snow and Birthdays

We've had a busy week playing in the snow and celebrating Bradley's 7th birthday!  It snowed Wednesday night and most of the day on Thursday and we ended up with a pretty good amount of snow.  They boys enjoyed playing outside while Meggie and I stayed warm inside!  Friday night the boys and I brought in a few bowls of snow and had a fun time chasing Ben around the house and throwing snow at him... we had some water to clean up but the boys thought it was great.

 Layla went out for a quick look around but didn't want to stay long.

 The snow was like powder so the boys had a hard time making a snowman... Bradley improvised by having one lay down on the steps!

Here is Bradley with his lazy snowman... he was thrilled that we actually had carrots that he could use for a nose.

Bradley and Kyler out in the snow.

Meggie wasn't too interested in being out in the snow, but Bradley got this pic of us when we were headed to the car to get dinner.

While Ben was home on Saturday they all went out and were able to make a real snowman.

Kyler enjoyed throwing snow balls at everyone.

For Bradley's birthday he wanted to eat Japanese with all of his friends so we are going to have his official party while we are in SC, but we did take him out  this weekend.  He chose to go to PF Changs and wanted to see the Zoo Lights at the National Zoo.  So, we headed up to DC and the traffic was so bad he decided he didn't want to go to the Zoo anymore!  So, after dinner at PF Changs we headed home (hopefully we can make it to Zoo Lights one day next week)!

 I'm making some cupcakes for Bradley and Meggie had to come check out what I was doing... she is always checking any noise that comes from the kitchen.

Bradley with his cupcake FULL of candles!!!

Meggie didn't waste any time digging into her cupcake.

She cleaned her plate...

and then wanted Bradley to give her his cupcake!

When he didn't she decided to ask Ben for more... I think she likes to eat!

This is Meggie COVERED in food (mostly mashed potatoes) eating a little debbie!  She ate as much as Ben for dinner... I think we're going to have to start giving her a limit... she is starting to get a little gut.
