Snow Day Part Two

We got even more snow last night, which was followed by a day of freezing rain today.  Good times.  So, schools were closed yet again and we had to come up with new and creative ways to stay busy inside for most of the day.  Since our day starts around 5:30am and ends at 8pm, that's a solid 12.5 hours of torture fun.  ; )

Today we did watch two movies (Cars and Planes, what else?!) but we also played with our moon sand and then spent some time cleaning it up.  Me with the real vacuum, Ben with the real Dust Buster (which he calls the Dust Meister since that's Dusty's nickname in Planes), and Tommy with our new hand-me-down toy vacuum (thank you Montanez family!).  After we cleaned up, the boys played nicely and I was able to get some other cleaning done.  We had some snacks, played with cars on the race track, rode the Skuut and read a lot of books.

After nap was over and we had eaten snacks, we decided it was time to brave the cold and go build a snowman.  So, we did.  And it was way more fun than I expected.  And pretty funny that our snowman is the same height as Tommy.  (((Little Goose)))

Still, I am eager for Spring!

Happiest vacuuming boy ever!

Snow day

Yet ANOTHER snow day in CT.  It's getting a little harder each time to stay positive, but we're doing our best!  Spring will be here soon.  Right?  Right?!?!

At least the boys wanted to go outside this morning and it's not 10 degrees or colder.  It's actually just about at freezing, which feels down right balmy at this point.  I'll take it.

Other than that we are watching movies, painting and playing with cars.  And keeping our fingers crossed that the two other predicted snow storms this week were just a dream...

SO excited to play in the snow!  Even if T's pants are 3 sizes too big.

It's hard to mow snow.  Who knew?
