Given the upcoming arrival of Sullivan Baby #3 - I think I was more inclined to really soak up this extra 'bonus' time with the little ones. Of course - the first snow day was jam-packed with various activities/puzzles/adventures/etc....but by Day #2....there was a good amount of iPad and movie watching thrown in there too!
The first morning of ice/snow we awoke to hear Bryce's feet pitter-pattering thru the house....but then it was quiet and he didn't appear in our room. After a minute I yelled out to ask him where he was, and it was one of the most precious things to hear him reply with "lying in bed, looking out the window at all the snow" - little Texan was mesmerized by the dusting of ice and snow. :)
Here's a recap of some of our fun during these spells of winter weather:
|They start out super tiny, but as you soak them in water...they grow and grow and grow|
|We enjoyed watching them grow throughout the day...they feel like slimy little eggs|
GingerBread Train!This was an after-Christmas clearance special that we'd bought....and had been waiting for a lazy day to make it. We'd made a Gingerbread house during Christmas break...and I'd bugged Mark since he was 'fixing' things as the kids put them in various places......so this time Mark said he'd leave it to me and the kiddos. :)
|Bryce is a Mini-Mark....he did the candy on the caboose in perfect symmetry....all on his own.....|
|Checking how tall we are :)|
