I remember as a kid loving the snow days. I'm learning that I owe my mom a big thank you for the sacrifices she made for us on those snow days. It's not all that great for us moms, particularly when it's not planned. By the time I got up the kids were already outside shoveling. Neither one had snow pants and Little Man didn't even have his winter coat on. They came in freezing and very wet. So began the "snow circus" if you will. 10 minutes to get all the snow garb on, 20 minutes outdoors, then inside to warm up. Off the wet clothes come. New clothes on. Hot cocoa requests. Then the cycle continues all day long... snow gear, outside, inside, cocoa, etc. The dryer runs continuously making it difficult to get laundry done. I nearly broke my neck trying to get the ladder down so I could get the sleds down from the top shelf inside the topper.
Little Man learned a couple new Christmas songs on the piano today and Pokey worked on her knitting. I entered the living room and saw this... she keeps me guessing. She's my free spririted child that will dance with total strangers in Best Buy (really happened this week).
We also made some doughnut snowmen together. They may not be Martha Stewart worthy, but they sure are cute and yummy! (And perfect to pass some time on a long snow day.) You can save picture and print it as a recipe card on cardstock. It's formatted in a 4x6 size.
