snowed in again!

Winter Storm Pax came to us on Tuesday morning, and we have been snowed in since. The last time I checked, we had over 6 inches of snow. We have never seen anything like this before!

Yesterday, Clint took the boys on a sledding adventure on a big hill behind our house. It was bitterly cold with sleeting rain. They are tough guys! :)
happy boy

off they go, leaving their footprints in the snow!

after they came inside from their adventure, leo was shivering on the couch. i came over to him and held him like this. he said, "thank you so much, mom! that's just what i wanted!" 

daddy and ruth :)

i read by the fire in my flannel pajamas

and worked on a patchwork baby quilt

and sewed some little heart appliques on the quilt once i pieced it all together

and handstitched some holes together in my favorite vintage crocheted blanket
