Snow Day

A break in routine. Stuck at home.

Pulling out board games.
Pulling out snowsuits and boots. Hats and gloves.

Filling the snow with footprints and snow angels... signs of life.

Piling on the sofa. Books at our side. Snuggling. Sharing a story.

I'm sure the less than idyllic moments will also find us.

Whining, fighting, crying.

Moments of Impatience?

Even so, I am looking forward to unwrapping this day.

A snow day, at home.

Question: How do you spend your snow days? Do you have any fun "snow day" projects to share?

Why is a snow day so special? Maybe because it's a holiday from the ordinary, but it requires no special planning. It's just a gift.

We love the thrill of getting to watch a movie during the day--an unheard-of luxury on normal days! And making homemade cookies. Cold weather + Warm cookies. They just go together!
