The bluebirds are coming up to our porch and enjoying our feeders this year. They are very skittish, so often fly away as we walk by the windows. I hope they keep coming!
We also watched a huge woodpecker for a little while!
The sky was clear for a short while today.
After many days of below zero weather, I took the kids to see if the river had frozen over. I knew it probably was not, but was still hoping 🙂 The only time we have seen it completely frozen was in 2014.
Megan thought the ice was fascinating. She made a snow angel and admired how the river looked through the ice. Then she just sat quietly and watched the geese for awhile. I wonder her reaction if the river had been completely iced over.
We have been enjoying the many birds at our feeders the last few days.
The weather is supposed to be very cold this week. With the wind chill, most of the week it will feel like we have negative numbers.
It is cold enough to experiment with frozen bubbles!
When Megan noticed how much snow we had, she told me that it would be a lot of fun go sledding. She said it was Christmas and everyone would be home opening presents and she really wanted to go sledding with Daddy and Mark while they were home.
So we got everyone ready and were the first ones at Oxbow sledding this morning. We enjoyed playing in the snow for about an hour before deciding we needed hot chocolate.
What a fun way to start our Christmas this year!
