Made weak by time and fate,
but strong in will;
To seek, to strive, to find, and not to yield.

Side Note:
The fork. or Also known as "A Dingle-hopper" Reminds me of one who not only had amazing hair (that I would pretend I had as I swam in our pool as a young girl) but also for me represents a young woman who loved learning about everything and anything. Who pushed past barriers and boundaries to find her place in this world. In this industry education is key and you are always always learning. Everyday! And with that requires perseverance to reach goals. The industry of beauty is all about testing, pushing and surpassing barriers and boundaries. This industry is truly SWEET!!!!

Snow, snow, snow, snow, SNOW

Brock with Grandma trying on all his cute beanie and gloves. Brock was distracted by my Dad's dog Nacho.
The boy's 1st experience in the snow was very short. About 10 minutes. We drove up to Cedar Canyon and man was is windy. As you can see by the look on their faces, they were facing the wind and just a note..... It was Hecka Cold!!!!!

"It's hard to smile when the snow is blowing in our eyes and up our noses!!!"

Snow Princess Amber

Here is my sister Amber the snow princess. Doesn't she just look picture perfect. It made me realize after the fact that I should have taken off my sunglasses for the pictures that are up next.

Aunty Amb and Brock. He didn't know what the heck was going on. Just sat there they whole time with a straight face. I think he was just focusing on breathing with the wind being and strong as it was.

Me and my Brockers, again, just like, "what the heck is all this crazy stuff and why are we out here in the feezing cold!"

My Dad. Having fun watching my kids freak out about the snow.

Branson's favorite thing about Christmas...........

His 2 minute sled ride before the wind picked up enought and blew so much snow around that you couldn't see 5 feet in front of you. You could call it Blizzardy even..... Although I'm probably way off considering I've never even lived in snow.

Amber and I trying to keep warm by huddling together. Did I mention it was so COLD and windy!!!

Look very closely.........

Can you see the snow blowing into our faces??? That face is Branden saying "ahhhh!!!" by the way. The pelting snow flurries is why I kept on my protective eye gear!! :P

Our drive home. No, it's not a metor shower. That's the snow zooming by the car. We are only driving like 15 miles an hour.
I said it was like a blizzard, but my dad just laughed at me. He went to Billings, Montana on his mission so I'm pretty sure he's been in a real blizzard.
But can you blame me? I'm from southern Arizona, and blowing snow and freezing cold air equals blizzard to me. :D

See the white splotches....... thats snow on my camera lens. Ain't it purdy? I was trying to capture what we were driving in, but it didn't quite work out. It was a "had to be there" moment.
So, despite all that, it was so beautiful and I was sad that the weather was so crazy. I was really looking forward to playing in the snow with my boys, which never happened. But the boys loved it and after all, that's what matters. Right?
