Snowy Day Project

We are snowed in today. Well, not really, but the boys school was cancelled due to the winter storm that hit us last night. We've shoveled the drive and walks, we've made snow forts, attempted a snowman and been sledding.
We are now inside warming up with hot chocolate and lunch.

I found this fun oragami project online that we are trying right now. I thought I would share with you, in case you find yourself in the same situation as us today!

Pics from today....

Evan clearing the sidewalk

Logan taking a skateboard apart to make a snowboard. It didn't work so well.
Tigger catching snowballs

Logan sledding down our little hill on the trash can lid. What can I say, we're being resourceful!
Isaiah, all bundled up.
See the lid, it works!
Some good old fashioned brotherly love
Which led to this...poor Isaiah
Snowball fight!!
I got pelted in the back with Logan's snowball when taking a pic of Isaiah hiding behind the tree.
The trash can lid also doubles as a shield!

So were your kids out of school today? What did you do to fill the time?

I'm glad they had fun. Just the thought of snow/ice makes me cringe. They've called for a wintery mix starting today/tonight - nothing yet & it can stay that way as far as I'm concerned. I'm starting to look for real estate near Jacksonville.;)

looks like everyone had fun. I think that's the first I've seen Logan in pants for a long time :o)
