Saturday Snow

I never know whether to wish for snow or not.  On the one hand, kids adore it, and nothing beats the surprise of an unexpected day off from school.  Then again, it presents such an added challenge for working parents (even us part-timers!), especially in our family, since health care can't just close down for the day.  Which makes it all the more perfect when it starts snowing early on Saturday morning and keeps up all day!

The roads were too bad to risk driving somewhere to sled, so Joseph and our neighbors' kids just played in our yards.  While Sam was perfecting the sport of snow soccer, Joseph and Benjamin were feasting on snow!

Ahhh, this is the life!

Cold winter days always make me want to cook something special.  Joseph has been asking for Grammy's meatballs, so I took this as an opportunity to have another go at perfecting my mom's gravy recipe.  It's getting better, but hers is still the best!
