Hello Winter!

Hello, I hope everyone is having a good holiday. The kids get an extra day of Winter Break. Des moines schools (and most schools statewide) are closed due to the storm that brought freezing rain, sleet, and snow to Iowa last night. Northern Iowa got almost a foot of snow and the south had over a half inch of ice. Those of us that live in Central Iowa got a combination of both. Ugh! Sleet pounded on the windows most of the night before turing to snow. We woke up to frozen car windshields to scrape and several inches of snow to plow. Hello Winter!!

We are spending the day indoors playing dress up and making tasty treats with our chocolate fountain. Stay safe and warm!
