On a cold winter day...

The winter weather continues. It hasn't been above freezing for several weeks now, and the last few nights we've had snow and wind chill temperatures 18-25 degrees BELOW zero. Brrrrrr is right!! I've never lived in such cold weather. The snow is so beautiful, but with the wind and lack of sunshine, you just can't take the kids outside to play in it.

So it seems, with the weather being so chilly, that we've spent a lot of time curling up, snuggling up, and reading books. And I can't say I mind. I treasure the times we sit with the boys on the couch, reading through a stack of books and explaining and pointing out interesting things as we turn the pages.

The boys love hearing the stories. Often they will shout, "Again!!" when we've completed reading the collection of chosen books. They also take off running to the book shelf to find another few favorites before the reader gets up off the couch. Yes, we could probably read all day.

A few favorites right now are, Blueberries for Sal, Flashing Fire Engines, The Little Engine that Could, Toes are to Tickle, and anything by Richard Scarry.

I love the book boys!! What better time to curl up with a good book than when it is cold outside and you are warm and snug in the house. May reading always be a joy!
