Snow Much Fun!

What a great day we had yesterday!  We spent it with lots of friends and filled it with lots of activities, which is why I'm just now getting around to blogging about it today!  Here are some photos:

Maggie and Paisley, playing with the fridge magnets together ...
 Maggie was so excited to hold baby Olivia!
 Snowman Snack for two!
Paisley had fun eating all her snowman's features first!
 Paisley, starting our marshmallow snowman craft ...
 And Maggie, gluing on her marshmallows ...
 Now for some features ...
 All done!
 And, later, after our friends left, working on some winter worksheets ...
