Today was one of those rare days when we had so much snow we ended up with a snow day both my children’s school board (HWDSB) and my own (PDSB). The cutest thing was when my son – 3 years old asked if today was a school day and we said, “not for you too much snow your school is cancelled, but we have to wait and see if Mommy and Daddy’s schools are too.” to which he replied, “Who’s going to stay with us?!”
We had a nice relaxing morning but by 8:00am it was clear that I wasn’t going to be able to hold the kids back any longer from the snow and we bundled up and played in the snow – and boy is there ever a lot!
Once our toes and noses were sufficiently cold we made rice krispie squares and the kids had some indoor play fun.
I used the time to make a felt heart banner for the fireplace for Valentine’s Day. Something that I’ve been meaning to do for a really long time but just haven’t had the time. In fact, I had resigned myself to thinking it wasn’t going to happen again this year.
So thank you Mother Nature for this wonderful, surprise snow day gift! xoxo
P.S. for the Valentine’s Banner I used the a heart template and strung them with a needle and thread on twine. I had to use a small pea size bead of hot glue on the back of the hearts to prevent them from flopping. Clearly from viewing the picture I’m going to have to iron the white heart!
