Saturday's little dusting of snow was nothing. We woke up yesterday morning to a whole pile of snow. I'm not sure how much was out there, but I don't ever remember seeing this much snow since I was a little girl. We stayed pretty close to home, trying to stay warm & avoiding the slippery roads. Lizzie and her friends had a blast building snow forts and tunnels in the front yard. Of course, they weren't allowed to go inside the tunnels for safety reasons. They were outside almost all day. I had a nice snuggle with a tuckered out little girl last night, as well laid on her bed reading together before bedtime.
We started reading "Wind in the Willows" a few days ago. I've never read it before, but I think Lizzie and I will enjoy the adventures enclosed within its covers. I picked it up at the second hand store after reading a recommendation on Alicia's website. She posted requests for reading recommendations on her blog recently and got many responses. If you are looking for a new read, have a peak over there for a great list (check the comments).
