Winter weekend

It hasn't been a very snowy Winter in the Midwest, so it was very exciting when we finally got hit with some snow on Thursday night.  It's been snowing off & on since then.  I thought I would share a few pictures from our recent snowy adventures.

The Bachsters couldn't wait to go outside and play in the snow on Friday morning.  They only had a one-hour delay at school, but that was enough time to get bundled up and explore:

Of course, Ranger has to get in on the action.  This morning the whole Bach family was outside in the backyard playing and that dog just went berserk!  It must be cabin fever.... or maybe puppy fever.

The Bachsters really wanted to go to a local sledding hill.  Here's a shot of all 3 of them, going down the hill (sideways!):

DD really wanted to try out the snowboard she got from Santa.  And after some practice, she was snowboarding down the hill like a pro:

When we got home & everyone was warming up and all the boots & mittens were drying, I went back outside to explore the backyard with my macro lens:

I made homemade pumpkin bread last night, thinking it would be a yummy treat to munch on over the cold weekend.  And I was right - we devoured the first of two loaves right away.  It's one of my favorite recipes, found in the Baking Handbook by Martha Stewart.  (you can click here to read the Book Nook post about this cookbook):

Homemade pumpkin bread and hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows.....what a perfect way to end a cold, snowy day.  Maybe we'll do it all over again tomorrow!

Hope you are having a great winter weekend!
