Snow-bound productivity

I've been trying, in vain, for some time to post some photos of our days (and weeks) in the snow, but Blogger hasn't been behaving. So I suppose I'll have to depend on the written word...
Needless to say, the kids have been loving the snow. Until they lose a boot or glove in it. Or catch a snowball in the face. Stuff like that seems to happen around here, even when I'm not involved.
What's been most exciting has been what's been going on inside. Not only has Abi's sweater been completed, Daniel's blanket is done and waiting for him, as is his sweater. Then there are the balaclavas, wrist warmers, and bookmarks that have come into the world (well, our house). Can't wait to show them all to you, when Blogger gets it's act together.
There's also been some baking (Amish Friendship Bread & brownies, mainly) and reading. For the adults, I highly recommend Just Do Something. Engaging, biblical, quick, funny, insightful. I read it with pencil in hand (must do that more) and made notes like crazy.
For the kids, it's got to be The Big Snow, particularly considering recent weather patterns. Whether you homeschool or not, it's a great "learning without realizing it" kind of book. You're looking at animals, their different winter habits, natural weather predictors, not to mention the pretty pictures. I borrowed it from the library, but it's going on my wishlist. Right now.
Hopefully pictures of all the excitement will be up soon!

I can't wait to see your projects, once the pics are up.

Also, if you want to pass some of that friendship bread starter stuff on to me, I wouldn't mind. Love that stuff.
