This is a 14x20 foot snow castle complete with a slide (see samantha on the left laying on the sled) The stairs on the Right, by the shovel, go up to the top level that wraps around the back. Then there is a doorway between Josh and I that goes into a room that is probably 5x9 Ian and Isaac are sitting the the wall that goes into it. Can you see Grandma Elaine in the back? :)
The kids want to play on this ALL DAY...they LOVE IT!!! Josh wants to make this into a family tradition every year.....he is already planning on 3 levels for next year....what fun!

Josh even made a 4 man totem pole going sledding. James Ivey in the front then Ian, Isaac and Josh. That was great!! There was sooo much sledding out there this weekend! Everyone had soo much fun!
The kids also LOVED the little kid snowmachines. It was too fun to watch them drive around the feild by the cabin. Here Samantha crashed into this tree and got her ski stuck. She had such a great time driving around.
and Ian Loved their turns on the 120s too!
This last week Josh bought the kids a little .22 rifle called a Chipmunk. Josh and Isaac took it out to do a little practice shooting. Isaac did great and loves it. Its just his size.
More pics soooon!

There is a little math game we like to play, he asks for it all the time. Heres how it goes...
I say "Isaac if I am 6 and together we are 9 what are you???" "3" Little intro to algebra....He gets it right all the time!
I'm so proud of him he really is doing great at math, he just loves it!
Ian has been surprising me more and more lately, today he wrote/drew a card for my dad (whos birthday party is tommorow) and has amazingly great penmanship for a 4 year old (at least i think so). The other day while playing a math game, the one I mentioned above, with Isaac, Ian chimed in and answered one of the problems. I guess it pays off to hang out with Isaac durring school :)
Samantha and Zoa are getting to be such great buds. Right now Samantha and Josh are off snowmachining on a daddy daughter weekend. Zoa and I were sitting here at the computer checking on my blog and she started getting fussy so I played the video of Samantha singing and she INSTANTLY stopped crying and started jumping and smiling HUGE, Zoa sure does LOVE Samantha and Samantha Loves her!!!
I am having such fun with my kids right now. Lately they have been really good and fun to be around, I feel so blessed!
