Bit O' Snowy Joy

While we haven't exactly been snowed in for the past two days, it sure has seemed like it. The kids have been off from school because of the extreme temperatures and again today because of the snow.

Things I love about being snowed in:

*hot chocolate in the middle of the day

*snuggling under warm blankets with three wiggling, giggling tow-headed children

*thinking about sleeping in

*elaborate breakfasts that would otherwise never happen on a week day

*snatching quiet moments to read a great novel

*playing endless games of Uno and pausing just long enough to brush our teeth

*staying in our pajamas all day long

*tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches

*digging out the flashlights and making blanket forts in the living room

What are your favorite snowy day activities?


  1. No snow here in forever. It's so rare in Texas that we shut down EVEYTHING! I do love the hot chocolate and the wonderful soups.

    catch up on my scrapbook magazines!
    read a good book
    make cards
    sleep in
    baking warms up the kitchen!
    gazing at snow while in the hot tub
    the Hallmark channel
