Goodness! Where have I been? Actually, I wrote a post this week, but it stayed in the draft stages of my blog. It was one of those unloading posts, one of those, "I think I need a small break from blogging posts"…but I’ve fully recovered. I need to remind myself not to write posts when the laundry pile is taller than my oldest child, the breakfast dishes are being washed with the lunch dishes and both of my girls are roller skating in the kitchen! phew.

Anyway this week we welcomed our first day of snow. A beautiful, fluffy, all-day snow. "The whole WORLD is white!" was what I heard over and over. Mary barely made it over the threshold of the front door before assuming the angel position. Winter is finally here. Bring it on.

I’ve updated my sidebar with a direct link to all my posts at the babycenter blog. I couldn’t keep up with the daily updates, so I just made a generic link to the posts by me. I just reviewed a book over there, which I think many of you would really love–because I know so many of us share a passion for teaching our children about good food, eating locally, and our food sources.

I also have a few thank-you’s that are long overdue.

  • First of all, thank you to Erin for sending Elizabeth a pair of
    these. She wears them every day except the day they’re in the laundry!  You’re a dear friend.
  • Thank you to Tiffany,
    my local blogging buddy who gave the girls a cute handmade bag full of
    her limber letters. The girls play with them all the time. All the time. You can
    find them in her etsy shop with a whole load of other cute things.
  • And another big thank you to Michelle, who quickly jumped on board to
    make my bare-headed baby a winter cap. I love it. And the extra goodies
    in the bag were snatched up and carried away quickly, too–let’s just
    say they involved horses and crowns. Good stuff.
