snow day #2

It is still snowing. And according to the weather forecast, we're supposed to get a lot more. No cabin fever yet - we're staying busy with school work and lots of snow-related fun.

The big kids were invited to go to a big sledding hill with a group of kids (and one brave Daddy!) from our neighborhood. They had so much fun! And we have piles and piles of wet clothes to prove it!

Hot chocolate and candy canes to warm up with! And Christmas music - just because it feels right.

Ever since reading the Little House on the Prairie books, I have always wanted to make Molasses Snow Candy. So today Audrey and I did it. You mix molasses and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and pour into pans of snow. It was fun to make and tasted pretty good too.

Patrick has to take the big car to work in the snow. The kids love the idea that we've been "snowed in" the past couple of days. So much excitement in our little neck of the woods!
