Snowed In


Well, we weren't quite snowed in, but the storm they'd been predicting forced us to get all our errands done yesterday. So today we enjoyed a lazy day at home. We had fun decorating a gingerbread house (though I think more candy ended up in Alex's mouth or on the kitchen floor than on the house.)




Later, Alex played out in the snow with Hemmingway as Daddy shoveled for the 3rd time in twice as many hours. Next year we are sooooo hiring a plow service! But she had a good time rolling around in the snow and sledding on the snowbanks.





And afterwards, we all warmed up with some hot cocoa. And extra whipped cream, of course.

Love your gingerbread house. I can smell the sugar! The wind is adding to the wintery mess here too...and I'd rather be hibernating! Stay warm!

What a fun day. Gingerbread houses and hot chocolate-doesn't get much better than that.
