It's been cold and snowy here, the perfect weather for a Christmas break. Jeff took the older kids skiing and I stayed back for two (short!:) days with Janey-pants and cleaned up after the holiday.
Now we are winding down, and ready to go back to school (I'm sure they are not), but it looks like they might have a few more days off with the storm coming through. I love storms, any kind, they are so exciting.
My friend said the stores were jam-packed with people stocking up food in preparation, and I am grateful I went earlier in the week, but it's funny though-sometimes I think the drama of the storm is a little much-heck this snow/ice/below zero temps-that's all I remember growing up, and we managed somehow without freaking out about it. (But I do need bananas, they are a staple here, so I am going to go today to stock up:)
I haven't picked up my camera much, the story of 2013, and hopefully not of 2014, but here are a few from the week.

Not the right kind of storm for the seasons-it smells like spring!
