Snowed in!

Friday afteroon made everyone's dreams come true...

It started snowing. And it's kept on snowing since. Needless to say, around yesterday morning everyone got a little short tempered with one another. There are only so many things to do when barricaded in your house with those delightful people you manage to not kill. Sledding seemed to be the sport of choice for a few days...but after a few bruised body parts and several new cracks in the neon orange sled that past time went to the wayside. Then it was snowball time.
Me making a snowball to INHILIATE the boys. ;)
But even that activity was exhausted by the third day. So what else it there to do? Let's make a list, shall we?
1. Clean. Bleh...did a little of that. Some laundry, some dishes, vacuumed. But really? Cleaning?
2. Write letters. Letter wrting seems like a nice homey way of passing the time. Sitting by the fireplace, watching the snow flakes drift down, practicing my nicest penmanship...but this means a walk to the post office and that is quite a feat in over a foot of snow.
3. Last but not the least...BAKE! Yeah! There we go! And since letter writing was on my mind and the next holiday is Valentines Day... I give you:
Love Letter Cookies! :D

The little enveloe ones are actually filled with currant jelly, too. So tasty!

Oh yeah, I made chocolate cupcakes too. Heh.

Poetry and cookies? Color me happy...
