The only time we went out - was to play in the snow a few times.
Aside from playing in the snow, there was a whole lot of watching movies and catching up on netflix, and playing games and building legos and blocks. All of the laundry was washed, folded, and put away! 85 of 100 Christmas Cards were addressed and put into envelopes (now just to get stamps!). Naps were taken (long naps)!
There was a lot of climbing on the furniture (and luckily no more boo-boos) until little feet were reminded to remain on the floor. Despite the fact that the Christmas tree is located up high, on top of a table... a few ornaments were pulled off by someone that thinks he's kind of cute...
We went through almost an entire box of graham crackers... they just were a perfect snack all weekend, and they went perfectly with... Homemade "real" hot chocolate! I don't think I've ever made it like this before - double boiler melted the chocolate... whisked in milk... topped with whip cream and (peanut free) sprinkles!
Ethan's been asking about hot cocoa ever since Calliou had it on a recent episode. I don't trust the packets to be allergy-friendly... but I knew our EnjoyLife chocolate chips were safe! So when the boys went out to play in the fresh layer of snow on Sunday morning - I melted the chips to get them ready for the epic drink! To say that they were impressed, would be an understatement... it was really really yummy.
The weekend was really nice. I loved being "snowed in" with my boys, with no place to go.
Unfortunately, as it always does, Monday arrived.
And to make it even more Monday-ee I got a flat tire on the way to work.
