Snow! We have been cozied up for the past couple of days with lots of snow. What went from mildly cold went quickly to sub-zero temperatures, the cold seeping through the very walls of our house while I read On The Banks of Plum Creek out loud to Milo and Oliver before bedtime. We just so happened to be reading about the 4-day blizzard in Minnesota where Pa found himself stranded outdoors and had to hole up in a snow bank for 3 days. We definitely felt grateful after that!
We spent the weekend mostly indoors. When it wasn’t below freezing, we were outside playing in the snow. Totally unprompted, Milo went out and shoveled our walkways and our entire back deck! But on Sunday, the weather was not so friendly. We had a neighbor friend over for the majority of the afternoon, and the four boys had a blast. We also watched reruns of the old version of Dennis the Menace, and let me tell you, we all enjoyed it equally. That Mr. Wilson was onto something.
Today is a snow day, of course, so we will be coming up with some fun indoor activities, shoveling the rest of the van out of the snow drifts, and baking some peanut butter cookies. I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
