We are having some unusual weather here in Portland – snow! A few days of snow once every couple of years is normal for Portland – not 7 straight days of snow! For the second Sunday in a row church has been cancelled.
As a result, our backyard has turned into a Winter Wonderland and we have had lots of time for baking! I thought I’d share a few pictures of the magic all the snow has created in our backyard and what we’ve been up to in the kitchen.
As you can imagine the kids have had a great time playing out in the snow – even my big kids. Snow is still considered a novelty around here!
We ended up with a house full of neighbor kids on Saturday as they came in to warm up and have some hot chocolate so I decided to put them to work – helping me bake cookies.
And if you get really lucky you will have a sweet five year old neighbor like I do who loves to do dishes!!
Of course, the big boys, were too busy to help with the baking….
There was ballgames to be watched and naps to taken!
Let it snow!
