Mr. Santos home for a "snow day"
Hours making snow forts
(mother watching from the warmth of the cottage)
Sledding, sledding and sledding.
Dripping wet snow suits hanging over the tub
Wet mittened hands around mugs of hot chocolate
Oatmeal cookies made
School work done quickly and without enthusiasm
(only to get out to the sledding hill again)
Chapters read from Little House on the Prairie
Old westerns watched with Dad
(the good guys won)
Mashed potatoes and gravy
Smoke filled kitchen from
burned toasted pumpkin seeds
Beautiful rosy cheeks on beautiful bundled up children
What did you do today?
our backyard today
Biscuit and Penny in their basket. They don't like the snow.
This is Penny (short for Companion) She is our new chicken.
