The last of the snow days...

Okay so Matt had to go back to work last Friday and we were still pretty much snowed in. I knew before the week started that if we were going to get the snow they were forecasting--I needed to make the snow days fun because we had been inside for a while. Especially Friday....because it was our fourth day not leaving the house. I set a goal at the beginning of the week to make our snow days FUN instead of just trying to survive enjoy them. So here is my last stitch efforts before we got out of the house. More floor time. I can't take any credit for this....Lilly did this on her own. Such a big girl!
I moved the dining room table out of the kitchen and brought in our water table filled with snow. I wasn't bundling the kids up to go out and play. It was cold. I didn't want to be outside.
They scooped it up with their cups and pitchers. They dumped it out and made the little wheel go round and round. Like a record, baby. (:
They just put their hands in it and felt it.
And they dumped it on the floor. Lilly also used it as a cooler for her sippee cup.
They ate some.
And then as it melted into water on the floor, Lilly went and got a wash cloth (when really, in all honesty, it was a towel's job) and with every drop of water she cleaned up she would sigh loudly and say, "Oh bubby!" like she had no part in the mess.
We had a little obstacle course with the dining room chairs in the living room. The kids loved going across and under them. In case you are wondering, I didn't try that out...pretty sure I would've gotten stuck.
Then with the rug and dining room table, we created a fort where we read books and played with some toys.
We had fun! Mission accomplished!
