Snowpocalypse part deux

We're on our third day of no school and it's been a day of making forts, building snowmen, sledding, shopping at the mall, making homemade valentines, and doing iron-bead art.

Snowpocalypse 2011

Ok so it's really not "snowpocalypse" but it was a pretty good storm this time. Here are a few pics of the kids playing in the snow.

The BIG 3!

Dallin is 3 today! His day has been filled with everything JAZZ.
It just so happens that the Jazz are in town playing the Wizards today so Joe took Dallin to his first professional basketball game. Joe's parents sent Dallin the cutest Jazz sweatsuit for his birthday and so Dallin was decked out in all the right attire for the game.
They had a great time eating pizza, nachos and ice cream at the game. Joe said Dallin actually slept through most of the second half! Too funny! He was soooo excited to go, I guess the anticipation of it all just took it out of him.

Dallin in his new Jazz outfit under his Deron Williams fathead in his room:

Our Jazz boys heading off to the game:

While the boys were gone the girls helped me make a cake and decorate the house. We had a fun little family party tonight with cake and presents.

The girls were so proud of their decorating efforts:

Dallin's Jazz cake:

Grandma and Grandpa Nattress sent a card with money! I'm sure we'll put it to good use!

Dallin got a frog pillow pet from his sisters and brother:

He got a Woody doll from mom and dad:

One happy birthday boy!
Make a wish!

Then to top it all off--Padilla's stopped by with what ended up being Dallin's favorite gift of the night. A big Buzz-light-year tent!!! It was so cute, as soon as he got it set up he ran upstairs to change into his buzzlightyear shirt. Dallin was in 7th heaven. (Or maybe more aptly "the 7th galaxy"! :)
