More Time Off

After being out of school all week, the kids finally went in late on Thursday. Today is supposed to bring more snow to Virginia. THe forecasters said if we had the same cold weather we did for the last storm, we'd get 35" of snow! With the warmer weather, we're only expected to get about 6" and 2-3" of rain/sleet. So we'll see. At least my kids now have ski pants, which I ordered via 2nd day air.

And more questionable weather called for next Tuesday as well! But devotionals will be back Monday. I've drafted one and have another one swirling in my brain. Hope you're having a great week!
Check out my girls having fun in their ski pants in the videos below.

Snow Day Fun!

We got alittle snow in Virginia this weekend!

Well, okay, more than a little. How about over a foot of snow!

The big dog LOVES the snow. The little dog hates the snow. Wouldn't you if it were over your head?

Every time Gigi heads out, Annie the dog goes along. Gigi went once without Annie, and Annie stood and the front door barking until Gigi came back for her. Ah, puppy love.

All this snow makes a good opportunity to mix up some snow cream.

With sprinkles!

Then I mixed up some dip (cream cheese and rotel tomatoes) for the kids to snack on with tortilla chips. They love dip. Me too!

Then I mixed up a pot of chili, (and some cornbread). Yes, I was in full cooking mode. I also did two loads of laundry and ran the dishwasher, did a craft with Cici, read all my magazines, wrote two examiner articles, and this blog post. And that was on Saturday. The kids will probably be out of school several days with the snow. What will I do???

Winter wonderland! Hope you're having a happy Monday. Devotionals will start back once the kids go back to school.

Psalm 51: 7 -- wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
