Apparently we moved to northern New England, and no one told us! We got an awesome storm right after Christmas which was great because the kids played outside almost everyday for the rest of their school vacation...But I feel like it hasn't stopped snowing since! (I know, a slight exaggeration, but we just aren't used to this much snow!) It's snowing right now, which somehow appeared on the 7 day forecast last night as a dusting but we have over an inch and it's still coming down pretty steady. We have a storm coming in Wednesday night that is one of those we always seem to get...It could be nothing, or it could be THE BIG ONE!
Either way, we are trying to make the best of it all! I am NOT a winter person but this winter has been pretty great! Christmas vacation was filled with lots of fabulous family time at home. My husband was able to take the week off, the girls got along great all week, and I was so sad when it was time to get back to the reality of school and work. We have had lots of sledding play dates and since we don't have a hill in our yard, the girls had a great time making make-shift sledding hills out of our monstrous piles of snow from the snow plow! It was HILARIOUS to watch the kids go flying across the driveway on their discs!
I am hoping to get out to the store today to stock up on some craft supplies for the weekend. I am assuming Thursday will be a snow day and they already have this Friday off for an in-service day for the teachers so...Another long weekend on the horizon...We are going to attempt some cute yarn hearts I saw in Family Fun this month. I can't seem to find them on the web site but here is a link to some other adorable Valentine crafts they have posted! http://familyfun.go.com/valentines-day/valentines-day-gifts-gallery-83824
