Fantastic time snowshoeing with Jen and Carrie. I think we found a new winter hobby!

Fun new sand pit.
We have been very blessed that our Church time is at 1:00 and Jet will usually fall asleep on us for the duration of our meetings. On this day, he fought it and ended up falling asleep on the floor for the last couple hours.
Anne is starting to love writing. Here, she just sat down and started to write and write. That is pretty huge for her.
Little Julia and James are just a month or so apart. Such a doll.
Dress up time with Uncle Jason.
In New Mexico we stopped for the night at a hotel with a swimming pool which was a highlight. That night at the restaurant we were seated right in the middle surrounded by elderly people. When Zac went to the salad bar he heard a couple that was about to be seated ask to be seated away from us because we had kids and they had had such a bad experience sitting next to a table of kids before. Needless to say I was very self-conscious, but our kids did really well. They ate their food, used their manners, and Jet ended up making friends with a cute couple sitting close to us. Another man came in and asked us if we were a family of faith and if we could pray for his dying father. He was a truck driver and was on his way to say goodbye and wanted to get there in time. When the waitress came to give us our check she said that an elderly couple seated near us paid for our entire meal. We went over to thank them and they said they were impressed with how well-behaved and polite our kids were and they wanted to thank us for doing a good job with them. That really touched our hearts and we will always have a soft spot in our hearts for New Mexico and the lovely people there.
Cool park at a rest stop in Texas. Why aren't these on all playgrounds?
