First and probably last "snow day"

Unfortunately there wasn't any snow left over here this morning for them to even see on their first snow day! The day continued to not be too fun for them. I put em to work! First, they helped me with our Christmas cards. I ended up just using the bad Disney Land one. I figured it showed the kids being their true selves and there's no way we would get a new one taken before Christmas. Luke was the only one that helped me through the end.

We got these cute ornaments at Michael's yesterday. We have gotten them for the last couple years. So we took the pictures and printed them out. Chloe gets such a kick out her 1st Christmas one. She pulls it off everyday and says "it's baby Woewee!" (my poor child can't pronounce her own name, so sad)

After some Ramen for lunch we worked on these lovelies for their teachers. 3 of em. Ry has 2 teachers this year.
I couldn't get them nearly perfect enough for my OCD self.

When Darren got home we ate super quick and rushed out to go and get a very secret gift for the kids. It was tough cause we had them in the car with us. I've talked about this item before, some of you may know what I mean. Very exciting!!

When we got home it was way past bed time and I still had to make a treat for their class parties. I tried making these pretzels hugs that I saw on Jamie's blog. I got side tracked and let them cook too long. Darren is at the store as we speak getting me more kisses.

What a long day! I hope we never have another snow day ever!!

Wasn't that the lamest thing ever? A snow day with no snow? Ridiculous. At least you had some hands to help you out. It was way fun at the girls night. We'll have to actually go shopping some time.
