Snow Day!

Watching our backyard with snow and the creek never gets old.
Snow days are not common place around here. Yes, we do get snow every winter, but not nearly as much as I experienced as a kid. I grew up near Lake Michigan and learned to live with lake effect snow. As a kid, school was never cancelled unless we had at least 6-8 inches of snow. Now that we live 4 1/2 hours south of where I grew up, only two inches is cause for school to be cancelled.  Last year we had zero snow days.  This year we have had two. Finding things to do on snow days is difficult when it blindsides you. This time around I knew the night before and planned a few things for us to do throughout the day.  However, I also realized I better start planning now for the summer.  My daughter is so full of energy that if I do not have endless things to do this summer, I will certainly go crazy. In a future post I will try and have a 'Summer To Do' list.

Yesterday we made the best of the snow.  After my daughter helped me shovel the driveway (which my husband got out of because he got stuck out of town due to the snow) we had some fun...........

My daughter's cozy set-up in the living for snow day...complete with Rexy and Frosty.         

Playing with Barbie's on the desk.

She always enjoys decorating T-shirts. Thankfully I still had one on hand for snow day.
Sun catcher type paper that always looks so cool in the window.
Decorated some eggs for Easter decor. Look at the yellow one---my daughter drew the top half  and I drew the bottom. She gave me an 'F+'  but yet I got  0/0.  She loves grading everything these days and just laughs when she gives me a bad grade.


  1. Hi Jennifer, I saw your blog link on mombloggersclub and wanted to check you out. You have a really nice blog! Your snow day looks a lot like our snow days. We don't get a lot of snow where I live either so we really savor it when we do. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. :)
