Snow For Kids! (Week in Review)

playing in the snow

My kids are loving the snow we’ve had this week – and Mike and I appreciate that, so far, it hasn’t been more than a few inches at a time. Very manageable. The kiddos spent their indoor time drawing and writing on whiteboards, making cardboard accessories for their teeny tiny toys, and playing imaginative games. Here you have Lily in their spaceship – the one requires a foot phone:

The kids were awesome this week, which I really appreciated. I even have all three kids sleeping all night in their own beds, I think for the first time ever. I’ve been on antibiotics since Tuesday, which always make me incredibly tired. Then I had a low-grade fever last night (alongside Lily), that I’m assuming is viral. Everyone else is healthy – and hopefully they’ll stay that way.

For this week, I’m planning another fun pizza-making afternoon. I also want to make my kids some of these mittens from ikat bag. Our knit ones get soaked too quickly, although doubling them up helps. There’s more to the week than that, of course, but we’re going to take the days as they come.

    I hope you feel better soon, and everyone stays sleeping through the night. That will surely make it slightly easier on you in a few months.

  3. Lily is tooooo cute in her foot-phone-activated space shuttle! :) Thanks for the snow picture, too. I’m feeling a little cooler just looking at it. :) Hope you feel much better soon.

  4. The snow has been so much fun – finally a reason to go outside! I love cardboard accessories for tiny toys! & FEEL BETTER FAST!!!

  5. Just wanted to thank you for suggesting the Faraway Tree series over on What Do We Do All Day. I looooooooooooooved those when I was young, but I had forgotten all about them. I have to go look for them again for my daughter!

    1. Thank you! We are enjoying a mild winter after last year’s BIG winter!

      Hope you and your family have a wonderful week!
