This is the scene I woke up to. Our back patio at 6:30am...so beautiful and peaceful!
|Snow angels, of course!|
|The tree at our patio door. It got lower and lower as the day went on.|
gnome babies I've been making the last couple of weeks....they are so fun to make because they are easy but not boring and can be made in a day or two. I plan on making them until I'm sick of them!
|Mom, why in HELL do I have all this shit on? I can't move!|
|The only smile we got out of him...this was almost immediately followed by inconsolable crying|
|Put a few drops of each color in separate pieces of dough and sort of mushed it together until the color mixed in fairly well|
|Rolled each color into a snake and stuck them together...|
|..then loosely rolled them into a ball, trying not to mix the separate colors together too much..|
|Rolled it flat with a rolling pin...|
|...and cut out the shapes! We then topped them with sugar and sprinkles and tossed them in the oven.|
Phew, not bad for a long day of togetherness! We had a little bit of everything but I have to say boredom wasn't part of the big picture. I'd call that a successful snow day.
