Welcome to Prarie Pi. This blog exists to journal and document the memories that our family experiences. Pi is "an amount of type that has been jumbled or thrown together at random." We hope to assemble in words and pictures the daily thoughts and activities that happen in our household. We do this to help those that are distant from us get a glimpse into our days so that the miles that separate us won't keep us apart.

Dear Mr. Old Man Winter,

We are ready for you to come and see us. Our family has been told (warned) of your impending visit and we'd just like to say how welcome you are to whirl and swirl and stop on by. This is a good time of year for you to come as we are usually expecting you. It's best that you come now rather than early spring.

We are more than prepared as we've been warming ourselves up with fresh bread from the bread maker and home-made soup. It almost makes makes us feel extra cozy knowing that you are blowing in and will be hanging around outside.

Other people know that you are coming too, as we've had 2 basketball practices cancelled for tomorrow night already in anticipation of your arrival. We stocked up on milk and chocolate to warm up and enjoy after time spent with you up close and personal.
We also have a 500 piece puzzle to conquer, board games to play, books to read and schoolwork to work on in hopes that we won't leave the house for 2 days.

Now that we've heard you are coming, don't disappoint us.
See you tomorrow!



P.S. Leave lots of your white, fluffy stuff around our yard. We are looking for some good old fashioned drifts to dig tunnels in.
And, we also picked up all the toys outside the house today knowing that you might come. We didn't want you hiding everything until spring.
