The Baker Boys....

 The girls had breakfast in the indoor today.
 It was one of those boot sucking days.

 I had a 2pm appointment with the massage therapist and had no idea my back was so full of knots!  It had to be from the day I shoveled heavy snow.
 So grey....
 I prepared two kinds of cookie dough so Finn and Coop could have a chance to get into the pre Christmas spirit this afternoon.
First we baked Vordags....a Swedish Cookie and probably my favorite.

 Then we went for the cut out sugar cookies.
 I took a quick break to tuck the girls in....
 while the boys played cards.

 Pizza for dinner,

then we started decorating.

 They had a good time.
 Here are a few samples.  I'm so glad I only made one batch of each kind.  Cookied out.
Night all.

What A Mud Hole....

We had approximately 6 minutes of sunshine this morning.

 Not long enough for me.

 Spritzie, muddy, ugly.

Class at 10:30.  Shamra is on such a roll.

 Len brought in one of the paintings he's working on at home.  
It's the Chrysler Building in New York and is still in progress.
 His style is so consistent.

 It started raining during class and by 2:30 I gave up and put the horses in.  They were soaked and standing in mud (because they are still not smart enough to go in the indoor or under the shed roof...and both had hay nets waiting).

After that, I finished reading a book in front of the fire and did a couple loads of laundry.  Almost into my winter mode.
 Chores at 5 and a 6pm dinner when Gary got home from Jenny's.
 A salad with spinach, onion, carrots, celery, roasted red peppers and feta cheese,
 Chicken Helen and homemade lomain with peas.
That's it for today.
Night all.
