Snow Fort Fun

The kids and I were delighted to discover that the snow was perfect packing snow!  Our eyes lit up and we were planning our fort, snowman guards and dragons almost instantly.  Sean and I worked on the fort while Emma-Lyn and Nate worked on a snowman.  It was fun and we got a fair bit done before heading inside for a movie and some popcorn.

Just a quick heads up:  Watership Down is definitely NOT a children's cartoon.  I don't know the last time I watched something so gory. Dead and dying rabbits complete with oozing blood is not such a wonderful thing to watch with the children.  Thankfully Nate and Levi had gone with Marko to the store at that point.  That being said both Sean and Emma-Lyn found the gore disturbing. Lesson learned:  Must preview movies no matter what the review on the box says about it! Yes, the movie was a VHS--we still have a working VCR.
