after the weekend: winter is here!

We had a lovely, laid back, snowy weekend. I'm happy to report the girlies are feeling much better and almost back to their normal selves. Now to keep them from getting anything else...

Saturday we basically did nothing. In the afternoon I ran to town to buy some more wrapping paper and such, but other than that we took things easy. 
Sunday I went over to my friend Alyson's house to visit. Adri loves to go and see her. Alyson has not only pretend cows (all over her house) but three real ones in the barn (along with some chickens) and of course that was the highlight of the visit--all the cows ;) 

This coming week we have a winter storm warning. I'm ready to settle in and really don't have a problem with the thought of being snowed in other than I hope that we don't lose power. Thankfully the few times in the past that we have lost it has only been for a couple hours at the most. The power company seems to have a pretty quick response time around these  parts.

I can't get over how much faster the babies seem to grow the second time around! Piper is already rolling over all the time, sitting up (with help), and trying to crawl. I feel like my baby is not going to be a baby for much longer.

Yesterday afternoon Adam made broccoli, cheddar, and ham chowder for dinner and it was delicious. The perfect snowy day meal.

This week is going to be a quiet one, but next weekend Julia comes up to stay through Christmas, I have final Christmas shopping to do (just some small stuff), and The Last Jedi comes out!

I hope your weekend was an equally lovely one, and that you had (and are still having) a wonderful Monday!
