All this decorating put Joshua in the mood to sing Christmas carols. I love him!

Then we got some more and the fun really started.
Uh-oh! Isaiah taking aim!
I got a picture of my honey! (-:
Daddy sending Miriam down the hill.
Celebrating a good run!
Just so we're clear this is the very small hill just behind our house. Still, the kids have managed to have a great time playing on it - in all weather. (-:
Some pics of the town and bay in the snow:
Isaiah and Samuel built this 'snow fort' in Samuel's front yard. They piled up a large mound of snow then tunneled into it and hollowed out the center.
Inside the fort.
Ambushed by unruly neighborhood kids, Isaiah and Samuel abandon their fort building for a few minutes in pursuit of the enemy.
Isaiah and Samuel slept in their snow fort the night after building it. This is it the next morning, they used the purple sled as a door and those are Isaiah's snow boots outside...frozen solid.
This is the closest I could get to a picture of the boy sleeping in their fort. They actually slept quite well and were happy to come inside and enjoy some hot cocoa the next morning.
Lastly, a couple pictures of 'my mountain'. There are pictures of this mountain, the one that I can see from my kitchen window, in earlier posts (June/July) all green. Now here are some snowy ones:
And almost fully covered.
We love the snow! (-:
Setting up. Isaiah is in the lower left hand corner.

Our neighbors brought their two quads and we all piled on and had a blast exploring the area. Miriam became quite the 4-wheeling addict and wouldn't stop asking to go on them!
View of beach over Joshua's shoulder.
The dogs had fun running with the quads. Henessy proved to have the greatest endurance by far! (-; But Haley tried her best.
This just cracked me up. The bustling Chineak post office.
