It’s been snowing these past two days. I am so thankful for the fresh, pure, white that is covering the ground. The contrast to the drab browns and grays does my heart good. And who wouldn’t be happy about all the sledding, fort building and snow ball fights that can take place in a winter wonderland!
I mean really what would there be to cry about on such a fine winter day?
It’s not like her mother was
forcing asking her nicely for a cute winter photo shoot! She did not comply. WAAAAA!
So, I took to finding pictures else where.
Less combat from these photo subjects suited me just fine!
On a completely different note, we are going to make Gingerbread men and a Gingerbread Daniel Boone and a Gingerbread Snow White today. Yah, it could be an interesting decorating session with a couple of my children. I’m looking forward to seeing that Daniel Boone gingerbread man and little sis is already asking me how we’re going to make a yellow skirt for Snow White…oh dear!
Normally this cookie baking fest would have taken place around Christmas, but with sickness in the house, this momma couldn’t stomach the idea of making cookies. I thought maybe I could just slip this in the file for next Christmas, but OH NO, nothing doin’ we gotta make those cookies.
So today we bake.
Have I ever told you…I love Fridays! (Maybe just a time or two, huh?) It is a more laid back day of schooling for us. We do the bulk of our work Monday-Thursday and then on Friday we focus on finishing up science, reading and history. Today my children decided to do a bunch of science experiments just for fun. How can I object! Learn away my dear children, learn away!
And that is that…a peek into my life in the snow, gingerbread dough and school.
