Dane's Christmas Band Concert

Miscellaneous Christmas Happenings

Riley & her mother Anna at her Bridal Shower

Our Christmas Preparations are complete but we go out into the insanity to watch "The Hobbit: Part 1", and have a Family Day.  Dane shows off his Silly String.  Devree has on a cute Elephant sleeping mask.

Devree puts on all of her black thermal underwear and her Christmas socks.  She tells us, "Look!  I'm a Christmas Ninja!!!"

Nevada Snowman

Nevada Snowman

You might ask... How do you make a NEVADA Snowman?

This is how Shay did it.  Shay and Dane shoveled the 1 inch of snow off of our driveway and sidewalks.  They dumped all of the snow there on the lawn.  Then they started rolling the snow into balls.  Then they merged all of the snowballs into a long skinny snowman.

Charcoal Briquets for buttons.
Carrot Nose
Food Coloring for hair and smile.

Shay was doing a self sculpture, so he tried to spike the hair in "Shay Hamblin" fashion.

Our Nevada Snowman just 4 hours later.
