today was a snow day for the boys. the first of the year for our district. the boys and i love snow days. we had a blast making cookies, ice skating, and cross country skiing. to make our day a tiny bit special, we got out my grandmother's currier and ive's china to enjoy our cookies on. the currier and ive's tumblers were a gift from the human backhoe from when we first met. i love them. they can be hard to find tho. i think it is important to use the special things in our home every so often. there is no reason for it to just be stored away.....for some day.
we baked the cookies using the classic tollhouse recipe....we added nestle chocolate chunks and chopped walnuts and a whole cup of buttah.......mmmmm mmmmm.
my 17 year old, cole, took the initiative to head down to the lake to clear an ice rink for us....thank you.
thanks guys for a fun lil' snow day. bummer for me tho....i am sure you will have school tomorrow.....:(
