Monday and I'm not at the Schoolhouse!


Atlanta had our own Snowpocalypse!  For those of you that are reading this from a land where snow has covered the ground for months, you will find it humorous that school was cancelled before a single flake had fallen!

Yesterday, we waited.  And Waited.  And Waited.

FINALLY the promised snow arrived.  Around 10:00 last night we had a beautiful snowstorm to watch:

Just to make sure I didn't dream all of this, I took a picture of my pristinely white yard this morning:

We don't have any snow plows or salt trucks or even a shovel.  The end result is a wonderful day spent by the fire and time with the family.  

But, wait.  Mr. Cheeks (the energetic toddler) needs your help.

What are your favorite snowy or rainy day activities for toddlers?

I lived in Georgia when I waws younger and we had a "snow" storm (less than 1" accumulation) that also warranted a snow day. Enjoy the warm fire and maybe a few movies today!

Cooking with Mr. Cheeks?! I'm impressed!
More snowy/rainy day activities:
Hide-and-Seek (at his age, this probably mostly consists of "hiding"...ish...and calling out "Where's Mommy?" until he finds you, much to his delight.
Play-Dough fun (homemade is a little less scary to watch being eaten!)
Tent-making with chairs and sheets, or fort-making with big boxes if you have any around. Reading in the tent.
Enjoy your time off!
