when i came into the kitchen groggy eyed looking for coffee and asked what on earth was going on in there, maiko answers, "i knew bootsy* couldn't go outside and play in the snow so i brought some inside for her to play with." i love this boy. he played in that bowl of snow with her, making little snowmen and everything, all morning. so sweet.
*bootsy is what maiko nicknamed eislee. in case i haven't mentioned that one.
