Winding Down

Christmas is just around the corner, and with a full weekend long blizzard blowing through, it sure looks the part outside. We are keep warm in our little cave, enjoying having the 3 of us snowed in for the weekend.

We are looking forward to a milestone this month, Papa Bear will be finishing up his first semester next week! He has a couple of big projects due, and 4 final exams to get ready for, but after that we get him at home for 3 full weeks! He tells us that he has really enjoyed school so far, and is excited about what is to come. We are so proud of our Papa Bear! On his major tests and mid terms, his tests scores have been between 79% - 108%.

Baby Bear has really enjoyed the snow fall this last week, and was even more thrilled when she found her sled in the shed. She spent a full hour sliding down the ditches by the house on Thursday. I am so glad we live at the dead end of a lonely country road, so she could play outside. I am trying to come up with some more inside activities, since tomorrow will be really cold and there is no school.

We hope you are all keeping warm!


  1. It has been enjoyable to share PapaBear during the week days when he cannot get home from school due to the weather or late study times or early morning exams or whatever. He is a wonderful houseguest and even cleans up after himself. Thanks for sharing - oh and congratulations PapaBear on a very successful semester at school. Love ganma bear E.

  2. Your blog is such a nice way to keep in touch, Jennifer. I know we didn't necessarily spend a lot of time together when you were here, but I so enjoyed each little visit we had.

    Take good care and have the most wonderful Christmas season!
