Brrrrr!

We just had our second snowstorm in a little over a month and my kids' reactions to it couldn't have been more different. I'll let you guess who hated and who loved it:

Winter Craft

We are anticipating another major winter storm this week, and I've begun to worry about all the poor cardinals I've been seeing! I decided the time was right for Finn and I to make them some homemade bird feeders in case they can't find anything to eat in all the snow.
You need peanut butter, pine cones, bird seed and ribbon (and a plate for easy clean up) I tie the ribbon on the pine cones first so that my fingers don't get sticky later on.
Cover the pine cones in peanut butter (I bet honey works too).


Roll them around in bird seed. This is the easy part for the kids to do.

And hang outside for the birds to snack on. It helps to tie it high enough that your mischievous dog can't reach it.

Christmastime

Our Christmas started out with a blizzard this year. There was 14 inches of snow! On Christmas Eve, we were just thankful that Scott made it home from work alive.
We still had a nice Christmas, even though we were snowed in. Finn got his longed-for Transformers: The children had plenty of candy:
We played in the snow (Kinley wasn't a fan):

And, of course, there were lots and lots of presents!:

This batcave ended up being Finn's favorite. I have to admit, it is pretty cool:
Here's a video of the kids opening presents. I gotta say, the best part of Christmas is just seeing the kids' faces light up!
