We saw our first snow of the year this weekend - and we all enjoyed it.  Saturday the boys and I ran up to Brian Head for some snowboarding.  This is the second time this season that we have gone up for night skiing -we love their "poor and hungry" deal - it includes the lift pass (from 4 pm to 9 pm), board rental and pizza and a drink for only $25.  The boys are getting to be pretty good snowboarders - they are tons better than their mom and need Uncle Michael to come down again to give them more pointers (Michael - if you are reading this - what are you doing two weeks from now?)  Here are some of my favorite pictures of the trip.  In case you can't tell - Ethan is the one in the green/grey jacket.
Miles is in blue - but you might could recognize him better as the one in the Oregon Duck beanie.
Miles rode the lift by himself most of the time - I was a pretty nervous mom the first few times - but he did great!
Ethan rode with me!
We took a break to warm up with a piece of pizza. 
We all had a great time and even though it got pretty cold on the lift - I couldn't talk the boys into leaving until it closed at 9 pm.

The next morning we woke up to 6 inches of snow outside.  I LOVE SNOW!!!  And Sunday is my favorite day for it to snow - the only driving that we did was 2 blocks to church and back. 

Monday we went sledding - here are some pictures.  Here is Piper and her cheesy grin - with the cutest hat that I have ever seen - her cousin Victor gave her this hat for Christmas (I think his mom might have helped him a bit - thanks Elsa - you are super talented!). 
Paige was the dare devil.  She loved to go "super fast".  She liked riding with Ethan since they went faster together than she did alone.

Abby also had a blast!
Ethan and Miles liked the jumps.
And my favorite picture of the day - aren't they cute?
