Well there is always the nap, which a nice way to pass a cold and lazy afternoon (of course this is after daddy spent the morning cleaning everything!)... the kids and I had other plans, like making candy apples, and baking cookies. Then there was the crafting, knitting, coloring and marble run building. There was also much mulled cider sipping and sitting around the propane "wood" stove. And we ended the day with a big pot of potato soup with egg drop dumplings (made with loads of butter and cream). There were also long phone call to friends in far off Arizona where it is still over 100!
