The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

We didn't get to make our rice balls yesterday as both boys have the stomach 'flu'. We lounged around together and made the best of our day. Papa came home early from work which was a nice surprise for all of us. We watched a movie together before the boys went to bed. They slept for almost three hours before the vomiting began again. So much for wishing for a 24 hour bug. They are lounging on the couch now, drinking juice. Mama is extremely short on sleep since she only got one hour of sleep before being woken by crying boys. Thankfully we all got a couple hours earlier this morning. All the same I think I will wake Nate pretty soon so I can have a little nap :-)
Here is our snowman building from the day before yesterday.
The snow was so powdery at first we didn't think we were going to have a snowman of any size.
Grandma donated a scarf and hat to the cause...
The powdery snow packed in such a way as to make inserting a nose and eyes next to impossible. We shortened the nose considerably and still had trouble making it stick. :)
