It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here - we even had snow last week which is almost unheard of around here! It was fun to watch the kids enjoy the wonder of the cold. What was not fun was to try to get four opinionated two year olds (who see no need for things such as socks, hats, coats, pants) bundled up for only a couple of cold wet minutes of play. My hats off to you mamas north of us who do this day in and day out all winter long - what a job! Other Christmas traditions we enjoyed this week; hot cocoa with jumbo marshmallows, butternut squash soup, decorating the tree together, redecorating the tree alone and taking family Christmas photos. What a fun time of year this is, especially through the eyes of three boys and a little girl!
