Snow Day Is No Problem
We survived the crazy weather this week! We were able to stay busy and also nice and toasty. We baked, cooked, and were crafty. I was very excited that my Burda Style came in the mail yesterday. There are some great ideas in the December issue. We also baked cookies and made some ornaments.
The ornaments were fun to make. The two pictured are my attempt at playing with felt and a little embroidery work. J.D. has given his away already! He loved working with the felt and buttons. Rory was done after just 1, but was so proud to hang his on the tree.
I made Ina's tomato basil soup to keep the chills at bay. Seemed like a good thing for winter.
It was very easy and super fresh tasting. Can you smell the freshness?? There are plenty of leftovers, which is great for lunch. Just picked up some crusty bread for some carb goodness and there you have it. All in all it has been nice to relax, take it easy, and have the family home in the middle of the week. A nice treat.
