Making Crackers

What do you do with a kiddo when it is so cold outside?  Why make cheese crackers, of course!  We  used the recipe from The Homemade Pantry by Alana Chernila.  A fantastic book Patrick got for Christmas this year.  I would show you pictures of the finished crackers, but the 3 hungry boys in this house made sure they didn't last that long.

Little Boys in the Snow

The boys love playing in the snow!   And when it warms up enough, we all race for the snow pants.  

It is even more fun when they can help Patrick shovel the driveway.

Feathered Guests

We have had a lot of snow here in the last few weeks. I love looking at all the snow in our trees and find myself looking out the windows at all the trees in the back yard often.  Imagine my surprise today when I saw someone well, 2 someones looking back.  

Right in the middle and off the stage left are two feathered friends.  I think they are Grouse  or Partridge, I'm not sure which.  But they sure we're fun to watch!

A Nice Start to a New Year

Legos for Fynn and Patrick, cocoa for Liam and, some sewing for me.  The view from my sewing room all covered in snow and ice, and a cozy night of games after the kids go to bed.  Not a bad start to the new year.
