There was present making, drawing, playing, reading and quite a bit of bickering all thrown into the day. Not every day is peaceful around here. Just a fact of life, but we always can try to make tomorrow better.
Read the legend of St, Nicholas, left slippers/shoes out in hopes of a few treats and remembering
"it is in giving that we receive":)
Saturday while it was nice, Eric and the boys cleaned out the chimney to prepare for our fires. Issabelle was on standby to help with the drilling. By Sunday morning we were cold and had that fire blazing. It snowed all day Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Issabelle can't even walk in the snow unless there is a path cleared. We got to try out our new to us snowblower since our old one we had for 15 years blew up when Eric was checking it out a few weeks ago.
The kids have spent hours out in our first big snowstorm of the season. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come.
