Winter: a few of my favorite things

quiet snow falling
the smell of fires in the air
the crunch of snow under the tires
hot chocolate
warm winter food
making snow angles
snow covered landscapes
holiday seasons
seeing your breath
snow shoeing
apple cider
pine cones
smells of baking sweets
snowmen made by children
winter coats

What are your favorite winter things? reply and I will add it to this list

Winter has come.

I think we only had 2 weeks of fall and now SNOW!!!. I love the snow, well for the first month and then I am ready for warm springs but that first snow is so exciting! Henry was so excited to play in the snow! We came home from church and the next thing I new Dave had snow pants, gloves, hats and boots all ready to go. I am so thankful that Dave loves the snow and cold that he will take Henry out in it as much as he wants. I love the snow as is the cold that comes with it that is not my favorite. I chose to stay inside and prepair the hot chocolate. Henry ate the snow and made face prints, ate more snow, threw snow at Dave, ate more snow and ate more snow. When he came in his face was so red from all the consumed snow I had to take a picture.

"The Farm"

Henry, Jetta and I found the Littleton Historical Museum. Henry calls it "the farm". It is a lot like Wheeler farm for those who know that farm. There are historic buildings and replicas of when littleton was first settled. Farm animals, that you can not feed or pet, and a very big lake that we spend most of our time at just throwing rocks in it. We go to the farm maybe twice a week and it is a major favorite with Henry. It is one of those places he can just run around and get dirty and explore. Yesterday he found some old corn stalks and was very interested in the sounds they made when he feel into them. He also had to have a handful of hay at all times. My little boy.....hum. Jetta was completely content to just watch Henry and scream at all the animals.

Some pictures I took at the farm

fun with play dough

Henry loves play dough. He love to make different shapes and place them in just the right order of color, creating something very unusual. This time he had me make imprints of mice in every color of playdough that we own and he placed them according to color and this is finial creation. Very interesting!
