What to do on snowy days...

I have a feeling it is going to be a LONG winter! It is barely the middle of December and we have already had 2 fairly large blast of snow. And do not even talk about the temperatures...BRRRR! The snow began to really fall after church yesterday and did not stop until this morning. So now, what have we done for the past two snowy days?? Well, lets see, yesterday Kevin helped the boys make and decorate a gingerbread house, yes it was pre-made one in a box! But hey, it was easy and it kept them busy. While they made a mess, I made gingerbread cookies. After our little men cooled, it was time to decorate! As a surprise, we had an impromptu movie night. The boys unwrapped "The Grinch". And they loved it.

Monday morning, was officially a SNOW DAY!! All schools were closed, which meant we did not have swimming lessons or basketball practice. Having nowhere to be at a certain time, we played in the snow, warmed up with some hot chocolate, did a couple of crafts, and made cookies. I really do love these day of not having anywhere to be a certain time. However, I am sure in January I will be tired of the snow but for now we are loving the fun. Especially now, since our package of new snow gear arrived!
