over the last few weeks,
as we have entered this new season,
everytime i tell the kids
"put your coat on, it's winter"
"you can't wear shorts, it's winter"
"you need a hat, it's winter"
i get the immediate
"it isn't winter yet, moooooommmmm!"
well today that game is over.
winter is officially here.
mom is always right, but now mom is officially right.
so here on the first day of winter,
i thought i'd share the last of our fall bits.
also, because my phone is about to
blow-up with christmas pics, so time to put these
in the bits and bobs memory bank.
bundle up friends, it's winter.
