Did you have a merry Christmas?  I hope so.  We did it up big this year…five family gatherings in five days.  Whew!  It has taken us a few days to recover and regroup.  All the new toys and gifts have been merged with the old and Christmas decorations are put away until next year.  It always feels so good to get all the holiday decor out, but just as good to get it all put away.

Usually, our Christmas is white and we are bundled from head to toe anytime we step out the front door. This year, it has been unseasonably warm, without a snowflake in sight.  And while I’m not complaining, it does feel a little odd to see my boys in the backyard sporting only a sweatshirt and shorts to play in.  Well, odd for Nebraska in December.

Despite the warm temperatures, we’ve still had snow on our minds.  Yesterday, we passed the afternoon cutting paper snowflakes and devouring these little snowman cones.  Use whatever toppings you like, this is just what we had handy in our pantry.  Be creative and have fun!

      They were very cute, and just like real snowmen they didn’t last very long either. 😉
