First snow of the season

This past weekend we had our first snow of the season.  Leyton was up bright and early admiring the newly fallen snow.

As soon as the boys were dressed, we went out to play.  The first snow is always the most fun! Lots of snow balls were thrown...mostly at me.


Rylan and Leyton helped me shovel the driveway for a little bit before they were off sledding.


Sunday, we tried out a new sledding hill that one of Holden's friends told us about.  It was completely awesome!!!   Seriously, we had so much fun!

We were out there for over two hours.  The boys tried snowboarding for the first time and did awesome!  They both surprised us with how well they did.


It was such a fun weekend playing in the snow, sledding, and snow boarding with friends.

The Naked Chef

When the Holden and Rylan were younger they always loved baking cookies with me, especially Rylan.    Now days, they still enjoy helping out but they had much rather lick the spoon or wait on warm cookies from the oven.

Last week, I pulling out all the ingredients to make cookies when Leyton pulled off all his clothes and asked for an apron to help.  I am not sure why he needed to have all of his clothes off but it was pretty cute.  

This little guy jumped right in to help add the brown sugar...and more brown sugar.  

He mixed and when we needed the chocolate chips, he jumped right at the chance to carry it back.


Yes, baking with little ones is messy but fun.  He was so proud and kept saying "I help" and "I do it".

Just like his brothers, he loved licking the mixer attachment.

Leyton helped scoop and add the cookies to the cookie pan and off to the oven we went.


Final product....lots of cookies and two excited boys after school!

We all have heard of the naked cowboy and now we have the naked baker.
