- 7.5 hours of sleep!
- An easy, happy drop-off for R at school
- Checking email to find wonderful comments from my loving family!
- Sunshine to melt some of the ice and snow
- Working from home all day with A
- A short line at the post office
This is the view of the snow from my kitchen window, as I mentioned yesterday (please disregard the mess in the sink! No comments unless you would like to buy us a dishwasher...):
Isn't that hilarious? (For those who've never been to my house, my kitchen window overlooks a little attached shed. So it's not THAT deep, but still!) We have close to two feet of snow on the ground now.
Here are some pics from a week ago when we decorated our tree. First, the bare tree (except for A's paper rocket at the top):
Then, R found the camera. He's getting pretty good at taking pictures (and yelling at us to "make funny faces!").
Another picture taken by R:
The finished product!
And, here's our gingerbread train. I had SO much fun with this. R saw the kit advertised in the King Arthur Flour catalog, and I couldn't resist. He lost interest after we stopped letting him eat the candy, but I wouldn't rest until we got every piece of candy on the thing.
