All of those are options when faced with a snow day. I think we tried each one twice. What ended up being the best time was the crafting. Yes, we did many many crafts, including macaroni art, baking baking baking, and Valentines — well past the mail date.
Ruby is back in school today. She didn’t want to go, which I take as a good sign that her Dad and I were good entertainment and company. Shaun stayed home to help, which was a God-send. Even as we snuck off to our laptops every now and then to make sure we weren’t getting buried with emails and messages, Ruby got lots of attention and her family and friends will gets lots of refrigerator/magnet treasures from our day.
Ruby insisted on putting “stripes” on everyone’s “pants,” although there was not a person to be found in any of her pictures. Striped and invisible, all…
This Valentine came with an open with caution disclaimer on the envelope (we mailed some even though they would arrive late) as I didn’t want my mother to be cleaning granulated red sugar off of her wood floors until Halloween.
Voila. A St. Valentine’s explosion!
Peering over the baby belly to show Dad the spoils…
Our sugary reward.
Holla! Held together by Gluestick, the Fannings celebrate a successful wrap-up to Snow Day Number Two!
