Tackle It Tuesday

No School, No Mops. We are snowed in for the day. So many things that need to get done, but my tackle for today is as follows:
  • Make yummy blueberry waffles for breakfast and have some warm hot cocoa with it.
  • Watch Underdog with the kids - one of their favorite movies these days
  • Break out the board games and play Trouble, Uno and Twister!
  • Have some story and snuggle time. Just spend time taking turns reading books
  • Maybe before the temperature drops any more we'll get out in the 4 or more inches of snow that fell last night and play. It is suppose to snow all day, they are saying schools may be closed again tomorrow already. ( I sure hope not)

I'm sure the kids will have more ideas of fun things to do, this is just some of the things we like to do when we are housebound. Happy Tuesday!

Faith Lift Fridays


You'll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious-the best, not the worst; the beautiful not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.

Ground Hogs Day

Last week we went to the library and got some books out about Holidays coming up in February. The kids really took an interest in GroundHog Day. They drew pictures of Ol' Punxsatawney Phil and talked about spring coming and all the fun things they can do in springtime. Friday night you would've thought Santa was coming the next day, the kids were so full of anticipation. It was quite comical. Ethan asked me, what do we do for GroundHog day? I told him we eat Ground Hogs. He didn't really like or believe that answer though, so I told him really we just watch on tv if he sees he shadow or not and then you just deal with his answer. Can you tell that we have Cabin fever at our house? Well the kids woke up this morning and Ethan turns the tv on the news. Not finding any answers, he changes the channel to the Weather Channel. What a clever little guy. Still no answer, so he sits patiently and watches the weather for like an hour, while Elena dances all around singing songs about springtime. Bill got online and found this article which predicts 6 more weeks of winter. UGH. If we at least had snow to go with this cold it wouldn't be so bad it would be prettier to look at anyways.

They want to know if next year we can watch the ground hog come out of his home at the Ground Hog Zoo which is located in the local library in Punxsatawney, PA (according to the book we read)- Just in case you didn't know that and were wondering-Someday maybe. But for now Have a wonderful Ground Hogs Day and enjoy the next 6 weeks of winter!
