day 68: went to a fun romans v scots party where a lot of gladiators were in attendance...and one very irreverent pope :)
day 69: another fun day of sledding. finn and his buddy insisted on lugging home these huge snowballs!
day 70: i TRIED to make a lovely new dish in the crockpot (thanks lisa!). however, trip shopping conspired against me and it cooked a little longer than it should have. in case you don't recognize that 'oatmeal-like substance', it's rice :) nice flavor though. we named it 'jambalaya oatmeal'. the kids were not impressed.
