First Snow Day of the Season


Ellie and I went out and played in the snow today after lunch. She was more prepared than me thanks to our friends Jen and Scott. Who have generously out fitted the “Wee One” with hand-me-downs both this winter and last. My winter/ski gear still needs to be brought out of storage. So needless to say I was soaked by the time we came in. We even tried out sledding with a cookie sheet. It worked pretty well. I just couldn’t tell if she liked it or not. As usual she was a little stoic. No crying but no shrieks of laughter either.

Afterward we came inside and warmed up with an excellent afternoon treat of Donut Muffins and warm Milk. Ummm… Donut Muffins you say?? Yep, they are muffins that taste like a donut and I think they are great. I found the recipe here. Which is now my new favorite food blog. Did you see her Bake tattoo? I love it although I’m not so sure I’m that dedicated of a baker….

Please forgive my out-of-focus photography. I’m learning


  1. YUM…

    Sorry about the snow though. I wish it would wait for a few more weeks at least. Then it can dump.

  3. Sara

    Yummy! That looks good.

    Wow on the snow…but COOL! I can’t wait to ski. 🙂

    Well she didnt look to “upset” by the snow or the sledding! i think she must have had fun!!! kind of weird you guys were carving pumpkins outdoors not to long ago and now your full of snow! lucky you!

    as for your baked goods….you make me jealous! we only have store bought ones in this house! :)\\

    Oh my! That darn snow, would be so easy to hate it if it weren’t so pretty! I love the picture of her just studying the flakes on her jacket, that dark blue makes the white just pop. Probably the first winter that she will actually pay attention to it. We’ll be waiting to see if she loves the snow as much as her parents . . . may not kick in until she gets her own skis. Keep up the “warm your bones” baking, I’m going to try that recipe this weekend with the girls.

  6. Hi, it’s Charie’s sis. Could I get you to send me your e-mail address, I have something I need to ask you. Thanks! Good to see you the other night!
