Feeling It

For the past few months, the idea of blogging has seemed more like a chore than a joy. So I took a little break. But now I find myself missing the opportunity to record and share some sweet memories.

Our winter has been slow in coming this year. We had one good storm, but the majority of it melted off pretty quickly. Back toward the beginning of January we had our first few flakes fall. It didn't amount to anything, but the kids all wanted to celebrate and get geared up.

I never used to enjoy the winter, but I find myself loving the slow pace and quiet indoor activities more each year. 
Dorothy reading a Frog and Toad story to everyone.
Puzzles together.
New artwork for the gallery.
Looking through good books.
Just playing naked. No big deal.
Audiobooks and artwork. Dorothy is drawing her own secret garden while listening to the beautiful book. 
And homemade play dough. Hours and even days of entertainment.
Annie is not too sure about this squishy stuff.
This big kids like to say they work in a cookie factory. 
Dorothy's snake. 

More snow may be heading our way this next week. We're heading to the grocery store today and then getting ready to hunker down a while. We'll be happy to do so.
