Snow Storm

Over the past few days we got 20-some inches of snow, and are expected to get more on Friday and next Monday! Raul liked talking about the blizzard, though when we tried to go out to look yesterday it was still a bit too windy for us! Today we went out again, as Raul had been talking all morning about wanting to make a snowman. Unfortunately, the snow was too light, but we made a snowman outline in the side of a snow bank and put a face on it! Raul was very excited that when we went out there was a front end loader filling dump trucks with all the mountains of snow to haul away. Raul has a cold, so we still only stayed out a few minutes, but he liked getting to watch all the action!

End of Vacation/Happy New Year

On our last two days in Florida we spent some time at the pool. The first day Raul just wanted to sit on the chair and watch other people be silly in the pool, but the second day he was willing to sit on the edge and be splashed/pour water all over himself! He was totally soaked, but still did not want to actually go in. We talked him into going in very briefly, and he looked nervous but happy! Our flight home was much shorter than going down, and we had a pretty easy trip.

Last night for New Year's Eve we went to my parents' house, which Raul is always excited about! We had a good time, though we did not get a lot of sleep as both kids were up a lot overnight. This morning we had brunch with my parents, sister, and brother-in-law, and played some games. Only a few days left of vacation!
