Yes, I know, it's cold where you are too (except my mom who's in Arizona we won't mention her) but we here in Springfield are quite cold. 10 degrees with NO SNOW isn't fair. Our house is drafty and inefficient so we have been moving heaters around and rolling up towels all over the place, I even made quilted outlet draft stoppers, (they help, but not a lot). So today we woke up to another chilly morning, Loren who never gets cold didn't even shave because it was too cold in the bathroom, (we had to move the bathroom heater to Aiden's room to keep it warm at night). So Aiden and I got up and cuddled under a blanket for a while then decided to watch Madagascar II and have hot chocolate. I went all out for my little man, it's so nice to have a little time with just the two of us before Natalie wakes up, I don't blame her for staying in bed, she was in our bed with the heated mattress pad on snuggled under the down comforter. So here's our morning 'coffee', whipped cream made from the cream on top of our raw milk and even chocolate shavings. Yumm, it looked so good I put it on my coffee! Stay warm and I'll post again today with the tree getting pictures if I have a chance.
I'm a stay at home with a 7 year old son, Aiden Jeremiah, a daughter, Natalie Cecelia 5, Baby girl Elin Marie, 2 months, #4 on the way and a wonderful husband who has return to school for a new career so I can continue to stay home with the kids. We grow a garden, love to work in our yard, make what we can and are frugal with what we buy.
