After the ward Christmas party on Saturday, the girls went and played with some neighbors and Russ went out with Jimmy to build a snow fort. They didn't quite finish it because after working on it for 2 hours, Russ got tired. He told them they'd finish another day. Here are a couple of pictures of Russ and Jimmy working on it. As you can see in the pictures, there are some downfalls to not being able to get the lawn mower started to clean up the leaves from the tree.
Yes, Jimmy was throwing a snowball at Russ here.
When the girls got home they were excited to go help with it. I never did get a picture of how tall they went with it. Which I should have done. The tops of the walls have fallen over so it's no taller than it looks in these pictures. Maybe even a little shorter. Ah well.
