Snow and Other Stuff

The Halloween treats have been devoured.  We've turned our clocks back an hour.  And the snow has come to stay.  All these things can only mean one thing... cue up the Christmas carols, light some gingerbread candles, get out the fuzzy jammies and let's get ready people!!!  It's coming.  

In case you didn't know, I like the getting ready part.

The first snow was wet and sticky...

And then more snow came and made the trees look all pretty and winter wonderland-y. The girls tried out the sled for the first time this year.  

 And we celebrated Grandma's birthday.  Grandma could hardly get near her gooey, sweet, covered in sprinkles cake because she had so many helpers to blow out candles.

And now the snow, along with the wind, has made our entire yard like a skating rink.  The girls "skated" in the yard with their dad today while I cleaned and organized toys downstairs.  The girls came and helped for a little while but they mostly just played with all the stuff I was trying to sort. Now all the play food is in the kitchen, the doctor stuff is in the doctor kit, and the dress up clothes are all nicely folded and grouped together into appropriate outfits.  I don't know why it makes me so happy when the toys are all in their designated bin.  Sometimes I just want to Kragle all the pieces together like the dad in The Lego Movie! Ha.  

I best be getting to bed.  We've got a crazy, out of normal routine, week coming up that's going to need some stellar organizational skills to ensure that everyone is where they need to be when they need to be there!  It truly does take a village!
