Feels like home to me........

Just a few days ago I took a some pictures of the beautiful colors in our yard....the unidentified bush/tree with the leaves that seemed to hold on forever, and our strawberry plants sleeping in the garden box. Now the leaves are GONE and the stawberries coved with snow and ice.
Sophie's school was cancelled for all but two days so we had a bout of cabin fever. I do really love walking in the snow however, it is so much nicer than the rain we are usually plagued with at this time of the year. I love the way Solomon reacts to big wet snowflakes splating on his cheeks.(mom,we borrowed your scarf) It feels like we are back home in Wisconsin. Sophie is really in heaven, but is a bit irritated that I can't drop everything and go outside with her like we used to.I just can't see building a snowman with 24.5lb Sollie on my back!
We are taking advantage of this odd winter weather, it is all so beautifully familiar.
