It was 78 degrees on Monday and today we woke up to 4-5 inches of snow on the ground and more coming down as we speak. That's Colorado for ya! So bipolar when it comes to her weather.

Last night we snuggled up with my favorite cold weather meal. An open faced 'macka' (Swedish sandwich) and hot soup. Perfect comfort food.

After we eat breakfast and snuggle on the couch a little bit we will be heading out to play in the snow! This kid LOVES the snow and I know he would absolutely hate living anywhere we didn't get snow. As would I! There's nothing like getting all bundled up and frolicking around while the snow is coming down. 

After we get in from the snow we will be making hot chocolate from THIS

 We got out first dairy farm delivery!! Every Wed morning we will wake up to FRESH milk, milked from cows just 20 miles away. Amazing huh? I'm not a big milk fan usually- but this milk? SO tasty! Apparently I just don't care for milk from a  plastic jug (taste way better coming out of glass, trust me) that's been sitting in the grocery store for a week or longer. FRESH IS BEST! We also got whipping cream, sour cream, cottage cheese, eggs, orange juice, egg nog and cookie dough!!

And now we are heading out to play. Hope you have a lovely day!
