snow, cookies, and a warm fire...

we got our first snowfall of the 2010 winter season on 12/16. school was cancelled the last 2 days before winter break and the kids played in the snow all weekend! they went sledding and had many cups of hot chocolate! henry loves being outside in the snow more than being outside when there is no snow! hopefully, the snow won't be too bad in new england this weekend, so we can make it to newport, ri safely:o)
i love this pic!

when the snow first started...

ella and weston decorated gingerbread with their babysitter, emma, while chad and i enjoyed the holly ball. they made a HUGE mess that (thankfully) emma cleaned up:o)

i finally convinced chad to let us use our fireplace! we've lived in our house for 6 years and have 2 working fireplaces, and this is the first year we have ever had a fire in them! i love it!!
