The New Year blows in snow, ice, cold, and more snow. I may not be a big fan of scraping ice off my windshield before 6:00 in the morning (then again who is?) but there is something to be said for snow days. In spite of the below freezing temperatures I personally was definitely able to make the most of winter - specifically by getting an entire week off work and spending it with my family, my cat, my blankie, my pajamas, and Jack Bauer in a 5 day tv marathon in front of the fire. It was the week of hibernation I had hoped for, and honestly I think the forced extra rest did us all some good.
Sammy had a birthday - three years old now! We made the morning extra-special by putting candles on his muffin.| On one of the extra cold days, the girls had a day off and I didn't. We made a nice and cozy fort in the living room, and yes, the TV was inside it. Several blankets, pillows, books, and movies made it in too!
