Sure, winter in Wisconsin is cold (sometimes really cold). And dark (sometimes way too dark). But it can also be delightful. Last weekend, we got about 20″ of snow. Good packing snow, as we like to say. I dug around in our boxes of craft supplies for something that could pass for coal and discovered pom pons and pipe cleaners. My daughter Veronica (6) added a baby carrot and some twigs to create the darling sculpture you see above.
One look at that photo and my hatred for winter starts to dwindle.
