The kids had a half day today. Alex went up to the Common with some friends right after school. (They later appeared back at our house for snacks and an impromptu snowball fight.) I picked up Kaitlyn and her friend from school so they could start their play date with lunch. They made pigs in a blanket for lunch and a big cookie cake for dessert. Teague and Ben showed up right on time and enjoyed having the rest of the day at home. Teague made a cheesecake and Ben enjoyed everyone else’s cooking.
