on the eve of Christmas

More snow. Argh. Preparation for playing in the snow seems to take eons and I find my blood pressure rising terribly as I attempt to put Briar's rain coat on over two sweaters and explain to Liv for the fifth time why I would like her to put her arms in her coat rather than just wearing it as a hood. I don't want to complain but getting used to having snow for extended periods of time is taking some getting used to.
So we've been doing quite a few indoor activities. I am overjoyed to be able to include Briar in some of them as he has been too young to assist in candle-making, etc. We made pomander oranges yesterday and he had a great time! Each time he added a clove, he'd hold it out proudly and squeal, "Look! I did it! Another one too?!"
I was so excited to find this post and with it another cool indoor activity as the snow continues to fall. We'll be giving them a try today!
I am being asked yet again to check the Santa tracker to see where the jolly old man is, I'll post this and click away.

I hear you on the snow. It's too deep for my 3 1/2 year old to walk in, so we're just staying indoors now. I'm ready for it to be G-O-N-E.

Hi Jackie!
I've been thinking of you tons. Sure hope you have fun tomorrow playing with the kids and the beautiful gifts you have prepared for them.
Merry Christmas to a beautiful woman, her magical children, the chickens, Fuckles, Robo and....the turkeys?
