Every now and again I get the question: “is Zoe still dancing?” She is, and she loves it. She has a bunch of tutus and various outfits to wear to class – thanks to her Bubby and Grandma who supply the cutest ballet clothes to her on a regular basis. And look how much she’s grown since the last ballet post!

I think I already mentioned that a dear friend of mine passed a vintage Snoopy Sno Cone Machine on to the kids a few weeks ago (thanks Amelia!) They love it but this toy comes with its frustrations. One is that the shaved ice melts so quickly when you pour flavoring/juice on it… and there’s a lot of sweat and labor that goes into shaving the ice (and it yields little for all that work.) We’ve discovered that freezing juice in ice cube trays first really helps. Not only are the ice cubes a bit softer and easier to grind away at, but the juice is already right there in the ice!
And once again, here are some ways to dress up and eat snow and shaved ice. Maybe we will try to freeze cream next!

Ahhh finally. My husband and I had a date – several hours free where we could sit at a table and talk about something other than schools, schedules, and kid stuff. We checked out The Chaiwalla Tea Room while in Connecticut. Not only is the tea amazing – but some folks at our table told us to try the famous tomato pie which was so good, I’m still fantasizing about getting all the way back there again. Maybe even with the kids in tow.

The lake in Cornwall was so frozen, we could walk all the way across it. Here we are sitting on docks half way across. Some nice neighbor came along and made a bonfire and the kids made hotdogs and roasted marshmallows. Ezra even found a way to eat them without taking his gloves off.
See what the lake looks like thawed, here.
