and my neighbors reminded me what a wonderful community I live in!

what a beautiful state I live in. I get so used to my life out here in the 'burbs. Surrounded by homes that look just like mine. Whenever I get away from this brownish blur of the SE side of town, I tell myself "I need to do this more often!".

We don't. At least for the next few days. Last night we set a new record: -15 degrees at the airport.
But 'tis ok: our furnace works fine, we've all got flannel lined jeans (gotta love LL Bean) and the outer gear to keep us warm. And let's just say...it's good weather to snuggle up next to the ones you love!

Lucky for me, we've got a Walgreens and a Rite Aide on every corner (as do you I"m sure) so hopefully once the little red pill kicks in, I'll find some joy (and relief) of my winter cold symptoms!

Yesterday, Thing Two and I played around with the spritz cookie gun. The dough was a little too soft and they weren't turning out very good. So, I put him in charge of adding the colored sugar and told him "don't worry, I"ll let you play with the cookie gun once we finish". When we were all done I said, "Come here, son" and proceeded to shoot the leftover dough directly into his mouth.
While he was smiling and giggling and saying "yummy" with a mouth full of cookie dough, Hubby stated the obvious "He is SO your son!".
*photos? No, we were too busy laughing to think to take any pictures. Choosing joy over frustration right there in the kitchen...

Now for the less happy news. I'm sorry to report that we've had an ornament casualty here this year. Minnie has fallen to pieces.
