Saint Nicholas Day and Snow!

This past Friday was Saint Nicholas Day.  The boys set out their boots the night before in hopes that Saint Nicholas would fill them with treats.  

Even little Leyton set out his boots.  

Holden and Rylan set out cookies and cuties for Saint Nicholas.  

The next morning, their boots were filled with trinkets and treats.  Leyton was even excited with his treats!

I was also greeted with a 5:00 wake-up call from the school saying "It was a SNOW DAY"!  WHOO HOO!  Holden and Rylan went out and played while Leyton and I watched from the warm inside.  

These crazy boys could stay out in the snow for hours!

Kevin was traveling this week and luckily made it home before the big storm hit.  Saturday morning they were out shoveling the driveway. This weekend Leyton had his first "real" experience in the snow.  

Somehow all of his snowsuits were too small or too big so we made do with this one that used to be my nieces.    

Once he was out in the snow, he did better than I thought he would but it was bitterly cold so we were only out for a bit.  Or at least long enough for pictures!

We have already had two more rounds of snow and I am sure we are in for many more this winter.  Trying to prepare myself.

For now it is beautiful with the Christmas lights and trees.  So as they say, "Since we have no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!"
