Ice and snow here...

Look how thickly the ice covered this part of our gate!
Hannah wanted the biggest icicle...we found one on the neighbor's stoop!
This version of "The Princess and the Pea" was retold so that the maid ends up marrying the prince! My sister gave this book to Hannah and she can read it herself, which is beginning to be almost everything now...she's reading really well. Homeschooling was on the back burner this week as we decided to play outside instead of doing work, but today it finally caught up with us. We got a lot done today! Lusy just loves the snow...I wonder if she's not just a lab and collie mix, but husky, too! One of our neighbors has charming little benches in their backyard...the trees glistened with the ice and snow. So lovely.
A really sweet movie...came out in 2004 and is pretty decent for children to watch with you! That's rare nowadays: finding a movie an adult will enjoy and that a child can watch without cursing, sex, violence.

Yesterday I made some Bread Pudding...very scrumptious! I should make it more often.

WOW! Those are such awesome pictures! But I totally wouldn't be so excited about all that ice!
Diggy Boy loves the snow, too. He loves to go out when it's snowing and chase the snow. He barks at it and attacks it. Really funny to watch!

I love this post. I love Olivia's foto w/ the ice, she is so pretty !. I agree w/ the movie nowadays - it's full of sex & violence. I will have to watch this movie. Also, the made in China (most Chinese are poor, they do what they can to survive - cheap labor ? made in china ?). They work hard for their 'one bowl of noodle' to eat. Hannah is learning Chinese ? cool. Hen Haw (very good in Chinese). My dad used to read me this kids' chinese book, he only spoke chinese.

Wow - check out all that snow and ice! That's quite a sight, especially since we've been having 75F degree weather over here. I would to see a little snow, though!!
