I’m not a huge fan of winter, mostly because of the cold and how it makes everyday tasks completely unappealing because now, a trip to the grocery store involves 15 minutes of squishing children into a zillion layers, forgetting to bundle myself up and then freezing while I stand outside of the car buckling everyone into their designated car seat. Also, shoveling? Meh. Slippery roads? No thanks.
Of course, I enjoy the holidays, snowmen, sled rides and the beauty of freshly fallen snow, and I’ve found a few new wintertimes favorites to add to my list.
Admiring hat hair. Crosby’s is awesome.
Making gingerbread houses (from kits. Thank you, Trader Joe’s)
And making Christmas cookies with these two, who are both now old enough to “help.”
So I guess winter’s not so bad, as long as we’re inside with candy or food. I think that’s the sentiment of many.
