Snow Day

YEAH- it's a snow day. We've gotten about 9 inches of snow and this is what it looked like when I woke up this morning:









After we blew out the driveway, I thought it would be the perfect day to decorate our gingerbread house.








The girls and I had so much fun. There is something so wonderful about being snowed in- I just love the feeling of being "stuck" in my house. It just makes me want to bake homemade bread and make soup for supper. Too bad I just did that last night!

How lucky!! :) My husband is a teacher but I don't know if he would have liked a snow day today since today was the last day of finals before break. I thought we might get snow since they were saying something was coming in and was in the mountains yesterday. Instead we're enjoying a sunny 40° day! ENJOY your weekend!

I love making gingerbread houses. Yours is so very pretty and joyful looking. I used to keep files of ideas for them like shredded wheat for the roofs and sometimes pretzel rods. You really know how to make a snow day special!

The girls did a great job. I thought about them as school was cancelled and not party at for them.

I'm posting a meme and hoping you join in. Your it!

They look so nice!! What fun. I would have been happier about the snow day if I had not lost out on my $30.
