The boys tried out their Christmas snowshoes—not quite enough to put the shoes through their paces, but they were determined to use them at least once this winter!
This sustained cold snap was good for one thing: freezing our little pond solid. My LSH and Secondo fashioned a homemade Zamboni (I called it the Plyzoni) to clear off the snow...
And then they skated and skated and skated. Friends came and went, a bonfire was built to keep the watchers warm, and they didn't quit until we made them.
Now for the perfect end to a cold winter's day: knitting, naturally!
