Well, it's not much, but for North-Central Tennessee, it's something for the kids to get excited about. Adrian, Dominic and Gemma all have colds--again!--so Gemma was kept in and the two littles were allowed out for only 30 minutes and lured back in with promises of hot cocoa, cookies and a Veggie Tales tape. The older kids braved the cold and tried our the sled made for them today by the biggest kid of all--their Papa! They also hiked down to the pond to walk on the ice for the first time in any of their lives (I reminded them that their Oma grew up in Bavaria skating on ponds every winter). Bret tested the ice to make sure it was sound.
They came tumbling in with numb fingers and cheeks all aglow. It was really nice to see.
