We made maple snow candy and it was amazingly delicious. There are directions for it at Rosina's blog. I have wanted to try this ever since reading about it in the Little House on the Prairie series.
I also finished a knitting project. Hooray! They are wool leg warmers for Sylvia made from Patton's sock yarn. Now I've started on a pair for Ayla, as these were originally meant to be hers. Simplest pattern ever... I used size 3 double-pointed kneedles and loosely cast on 50 stitches. Knit 10 rows of knit 1, purl 1 ribbing, and knit the rest until they were almost as long as desired (in this case 12"). Knit another 10 rows of the ribbing and bind off very loosely so it doesn't pinch the thigh at the top.
For Ayla's, I have used a slightly finer, softer sock yarn and only cast on 44 stitches. They look like they will be the right size for her this time.
Here's some other random pictures from the last few days...
...just 'cause they're so sweet...
...playing Mythmatical Battles with Papa (Yes, she cut her own bangs again. I encouraged her to look in a mirror this time...;-)
...and more backyard snow play before it gets really cold out.
