Over the river and through the woods

to Grandma's (and Grandpa's) house we go

Daddy knows the way, to make the snow spray

Through bright and drifting snow, oh-

Over the river and through the woods
Oh how the wind doth blow
It stings the toes

and bites the nose,

so into the house we go.

Same song, second verse. A little more rhyming for what it's worth...

For 30 plus years and many more to come

a family tradition lives

The kids know the way

to make sprinkles stay

they wouldn't have it any other way - a.

Thirty plus years with many more to come

watching the kids have fun.

They work so hard

they need to rest

Until into his mouth it goes.


  1. you're so funny! reminds me of MckMama's post from last night! The snow storm must be inspiring you both over in your neck of the woods!

  2. Oooh and what a delicious tradition that looks like!

  3. that was so fun to read.... we just did cookies tonight. so much fun!


  4. I had so much fun watching both young and old decorate the cookies. I was amazed at how original they got with their cookies. Sugar cookies are my least favorite to make but watching the kids decorate them is priceless. Brady, our vacuum cleaner dog, had a ball cleaning up the sprinkles off the floor when you left. See you next year at the same time of year!!!!!

  5. So cute, and such great pictures. Especially the one with sisterbear supporting her chin.

  6. Looks like a yummy tradition!!


New shampoo for a new year!

Happy New Year from BearCountry! We are in the middle of a cold snap where the temps spend more time below zero than above. That means hats ...
