Tiger loves this set of small drawers...

The girls made a tent this morning...

We did handwork outside sun catchers

The girls gently cut pieces from an evergreen tree for the sun catchers.

These are supposed to be filled with leaves, twigs, berries and small pinecones but all of those things are buried under 3feet of snow, so we improvised with some evergreen pieces and coloured pony beads. They will still look great shining in the sun.

Unfortunately the weather hovered around freezing today and wasn't quite cold enough to freeze our suncatchers...hopefully they will freeze overnight.

Soup Day

We made a very delicious Cream of Tomatoe soup today for lunch.

Tiger has been enjoying pulling the toboggan around. He likes to fill it with toys and snow. He doesen't like when Princess tries to hitch a ride.

Everyone had a taste of the Honey Bread dough after our baking this morning.

The forest became a distant planet and they went searching for treasure and adventure. They found an animal bone (gross) ....
