Last year, we barely had any snow, but in 2010 our street looked like this: My kids LOVE to play in the snow, but I really hate to spend a lot of money on snow gear, because we just never know what kind of winter weather we’ll get here in the center of the state.

My Week: Gentle Leader and Thrifty Sneakers

Family Balance Sheet

Our sweet Ruby has assimilated into our family quite well. She’s such an easy dog. She rarely barks, rolls straight to her back for belly rubs every time you approach her, and she immediately knew her bathroom was our back yard, not our living room floor. She’s a keeper for sure!
