Winter

I just wanted to share a little about our winter here. The snow is deep now and we can barely get up the hill of the driveway. I shared with Matthew that we might need to put the chains on so we can get up the hill. He thought that was a good idea so he’s doing that now.

DSC_0120Just a beautiful picture of the lake in it’s winter glory.DSC_0126  DSC_0002The kids sliding down our hill. They do this about once a day. DSC_0072Here the kids are roasting marshmallows. We are doing this once a week now with the graham crackers. I will buy some chocolate soon to make them a little better. DSC_0085Don’t mind our pictures, they aren’t turning out the best with the flash on at night. Here’s Elisabeth roasting hers…   : ) DSC_0081 DSC_0048DSC_0059See how deep the snow got? Yikes!  DSC_0020Ice covered and snow covered lake…DSC_0013Here’s the beginning of the freeze several weeks ago or so. DSC_0003The icicles. They are longer than they appear… 4+ feet. DSC_0024Elisabeth making bread for the first time. She did a good job. DSC_0023It turned out wonderful. I’m sorry I didn’t get a picture of the final product.

    • So nice to see your name on here my friend! I will call you tomorrow (if life doesn’t make me forget). I am wondering how your baby is coming along…. you’re so close. I am getting excited for you!

  1. Oh my, what beautiful weather! We’re still wandering around in shorts and t-shirts here. Nights are colder so we can still enjoy our lovely log fire! Really enjoying your recent posts…
    Hugs to all, Sofia xx

    • It’s so good to hear from you Sofia! I wish I had seen this sooner. I was just wondering how you are doing the other day. You were such a help to me with my early troubles of feeding Benjamin, bless your heart. I will have to write you now, soon. Take care…

  2. It is absolutely beautiful!! Thank You for sharing!
    Elisabeth is making bread already!! Wonderful! We use a bread machine if the “4” older eat bread. We don’t eat much bread since we quit grains. They are losing their taste for it as well. Which I never thought we would!!
