Snow Day #2

As expected, schools are closed for the second day in a row. Our first makeup day has been scheduled for this coming Saturday. Other makeup days I guess will be decided once we see just how many days we'll be out this week. Some have said we'll be lucky to return to school on Friday.

My ideas for yesterday went pretty much as planned. The girls watched some television and played some video games but we also went outside for a little walk - a very cold little walk - and we also got some crafting and some baking and some hot chocolate in our day as well.

The children catching snowflakes craft turned out pretty cute. I have them hanging on our sliding glass door today. They are certainly unique!! Look at those mouths full of teeth!!

I made blueberry muffins - two batches. There are only two muffins left so it is safe to assume we have done our share of eating as well. I also made chili. A whole lot of chili. Apparently I thought I was feeding the neighborhood or that we would want to eat chili for every meal for the next week. Good thing I have an extra freezer!

I doubt we go outside today even though it is supposed to be a tad warmer. It also is a lot wetter and muddier today - both I would rather avoid.

Unless we make a quick run to the grocery store for a couple of items, today will most likely be a stay in, stay warm, watch tv (for the girls), read (for all of us), catch up on work (for me) kind of day.

The cold is apparently planning on sticking around a while. Our forecast...

Brrr...I get chills just thinking about it. It looks like it is going to be a fireplace, hot chocolate, soup, lots of layers kind of week around here!
