  1. It looks as if the Hittys are making the most of the cold weather and having a lot of fun. I agree completely that marshmallows are OTT – my kind of cat I expect.

  2. Goodness this might be the cutest story line yet. I loved them standing atop the frozen water dish wishing to
    skate!! And then the puddle!! Made me remember my siblings and I slipping and sliding and pretending to skate
    on our frozen pond. In our rubber boots!! Great pictures. Love those little girls.
