Snow (Not So Much) Fun

 So it is a winter wonderland here, and it is gorgeous.  No drifts, just a perfect pretty snow.  I was feeling awful yesterday as I saw everyone's post on facebook with their kids in the snow so I decided to get them bundled up and left them play this morning.  They do not have "ski clothes" as I call them so I just layered them.  We put on 3 pairs of socks, 3 pants, 3 shirts to make sure they didn't freeze.  Well all that took about 45 minutes to get done since they were just thrilled to put on that many clothes.  Jaycee was so excited to finally get to go outside that she just ran out the door.  Well she of course fell right into the snow because she did not know that it was snow and she couldn't exactly run in it.  Well she lost her mittens and it just made her mad that she fell.  So needless to say it was downhill from there.
I just had to sit Payzlee down in the snow for her to experience this
Payzlee was quite happy
 Such a sweetie
 Then Payzlee kind of fell over, but she wasn't completely mad.
 Then she face planted and she was irate!
Needless to say we went right back inside!
 Payzlee was quite happy to eat the snow off the floor in the house though!

 Jaycee getting all those layers off!
On a good note, since it was such a nice calm snow, all the cattle stayed home and it is not just awful like usual for Justin.  I can't even remember the last time it snowed this pretty without the wind!  We are definitely thankful for that!

A Month Behind from Here on Out...

I am just going to be a month behind from here on out I suppose.  Sorry, better late than never.  For Halloween Jaycee was a Scarecrow. 
Payzlee was Ghost
Best family picture we can get these days
 Daddy and his ghost

 It had been really pretty until this week so Jaycee has been riding a few weeks ago
 And Payzlee got to go riding for the first time and LOVED it!
 Payzlee turned 8 months this month.  Here are a few of her pictures.
She gets so excited!

 What she does quite often.  Get so tickled!
At 8 months:
-Finally sits!  Just started sitting on her own a few weeks ago!  I know, ridiculous.  It was like she didn't think her body could bend that way.  And she still sits really awkward.
-Still no teeth
-Loves to just cruise around the house.  Army crawling it up.
-She is quite petite like Jaycee was.  She can't gain wait if she wanted.  She. Never. Stops.  She will not cuddle with you.  She does not like you to hold her for longer than 1 minute.  She just wants to be on the move and trying to do everything Jaycee does.
-She pulls up to her knees constantly and pulls up to her feet some.  We have even caught her trying to stand in the middle of the floor several times, but she won't walk along anything she pulls up on.  I can't figure this kid out.  Everything is backwards.
-Wears 9 months clothes still.
