I call this the old barn boot bench because it was in the porch where I always sat to put on my barn boots before I went out to work.

The December and January rains made ideal conditions for snow fort blocks.
I remember doing this with all by brothers when I was a kid.
With five boys and a couple of cousins helping we could make pretty extravagant forts.
These kids really got a work-out making this little "igloo" as they insisted on calling it.
Charli helped get it this far and went inside because it was getting cold.
But Peyton and Lily wanted to keep working on because they liked it so much.
Better hurry. The sun is setting.
While they were placing this block they pushed against each other too much and almost the whole wall tumbled down!
I had to pocket the camera for a while to assist reconstruction.
After the demolition, reconstruction and getting it back to this stage it was time to go inside.
I'm sure they will spend a lot more time by the igloo for the rest of the winter.

Lily brought the carrot seeds here from school last spring. We planted them by the house but I didn't think the dirt was very good so I never expected much.
After showing off her bounty for us all, she cleaned them and shared with Charli and me. She also saved some for Peyton.

When we were at church this morning Peyton found this sticker cross in a kid's bag and wanted it stuck where he thought it should be.
Lily was with Dad and he was waiting for her to come see what he had on his head. This was taken around two and it was still there. He said "Pastor Pete said it is there forever!"
