On Thursday it snowed a lot! I decided it would be a great day to just stay at home.
Abigail played happily and decided to wear her "Big Sister" shirt.

Elsie decided to be her "good baby" self and sleep most of the afternoon. It allowed me to get lots done. I made a full meal for all 3 meals so I had a lot of cleaning up to do. (This is how I get so much done in the kitchen and still interact with my baby - except when she's sleeping).
For supper I made creamy vegetable soup (yum), Pioneer Woman's onion straws (double yum - see picture below), and apple crisp (also yum). Abigail ate a ton of apples as I was peeling them for the crisp.

And Andrew arrived home about 2:00 pm so he wouldn't get stuck downtown.

What a wonderful and cozy day!

How do you make onion straws?

Does Abigail play in the box?

Love, Mom

The recipe is in the Pioneer Woman's Cookbook. Simplified it is: soak thinly sliced onions in buttermilk, dip in flour mixture, fry. They were yummy!

Yes, she loves playing in the box.

The bouncy on the counter top is tres helpful. My baby is a bit older, but he loves watching from his high chair...when he isn't zooming about the house, looking for a chance to throw a toy in the toilet!
