A crisp winter afternoon

...and I sent the girls out to play in the fresh Minnesota snow today.  It was a glorious 30 minutes of quiet.  My dad was here and he watched the girls through the window so I could go take a shower and Corbin was sleeping.  When I got out of the shower I had just enough time to make a cup of tea before the first of the girls wanted to come back in.  Bee's mitten had fallen off and she fell in the snow.  Her hand had, and I quote, "icicles on it!"  Such a sweet little girl.  Butterfly wanted to stay out longer but she got bored without her sister and came in as well. 

This weekend has much fun in store as long as the winter weather isn't too bad.  My mother in law is performing with her church for a Christmas dinner.  We are all looking forward to that.  Then on Sunday Hubby and I are planning to head to the "city" and do our Christmas shopping.  It is going to be a great weekend, even if we get snowed in.  We will all be together as family.  That is the best part about Minnesota winters...the togetherness that you get in a blizzard. 

I am hoping to get some more cookies made this afternoon but my back is starting to act up so I might have to put them on hold until tomorrow.  Here's to hoping that a quick nap will fix it.
