Husband is off for the rest of the week because he won't be off next week :( so we are declaring today a Snow Day. Real snow days do occur naturally here in Texas but we can't count on one every year so we are making our own. On the agenda:1. Create our own snow storm in the windows. I made this one last night so the kids will get to work on their bedroom windows today. Warning: This project is so addictive you will find yourself looking at every window in your house and wondering if there are any 24 hour office supply stores. There aren't, just to let you know, but Wal-mart carries the 3/4 inch round labels and they are open 24 hours. I'm just sayin'.
2. We were so delighted by Joann's pictures and the simplicity of this project that we made our own last night so that they would be ready for Snow Day today. Some of us experimented with metallic pipe cleaners. The pink and red ones changed the color of the Borax solution but not the green or silver. Hmmmm?
3. Some sort of snow snack. I am thinking maybe Sugar Snow made with shaved ice or Snowman Meringues or maybe just Marshmallow Men. Suggestions welcome!
4. A snowball fight for sure! The giant basket of white socks sitting in my bedroom will do nicely and no, I'm not posting a picture of those!
5. Some serious snuggle time under piles of blankets with good books and hot chocolate all around. Isn't that all you people north of the Red River do this time of year?
Have a great day (snowy or not) and if you don't hear from me for the rest of the week just read that first sentence again and you'll know why!!! :)
