Well we are moment away from the start of an "epic" blizzard here in Connecticut. But if you know me at all, you know that I love these. We are safe, we are prepared, we are ready. So the rest is all just family cozy time. And that my friends, is the best thing in the world. So bring it on!
I'll post for sure on this storm (as long as we have power) but I just don't want to forget all of these little moment.

Anna played in her first Middle School concert.
She's been wearing 'black and white' concert attire since she was five but this time they called for pants! Now that was a change up! She wore mine. And looked so darn cute in them!
On Friday afternoon my Mom took Abigail to the mall. And she come home beaming.
She has a 'thing' for elephants ever since the Kindergarten research project (back here)
Because of the magic of 'kinderland' she will always consider herself an expert on elephants.
(especially ones that fit on her hip like a baby)
On Saturday morning we woke up to our first real snow storm since the day before Thanksgiving when I did this photo session for the Christmas card.
She was at the foot of our bed for an hour just enjoying the quiet beauty.
During a storm I got to try a new tea... love!
and the early morning view from my kitchen window
It is not a snowy Saturday without baking in my kitchen.
And a snowman with daddy at night.
"... for a winters night.
for the wind howls loud and the flurries fight;
spice it with love and stir it with care,
and I'll toast our bright eyes, my sweetheart fair."

There was paper doll playing
and sledding the next day in the sunshine
It was a perfect snowy winter weekend. And by Sunday morning we knew we were in for what is about to come our way. Blizzard 2015.
