Snow Day Indoor Fun

Whoops! I am behind on blogging again. It seems that after two weeks of being snowed in--when the weather got better--we hit the town! We haven't stopped...this is Thursday and I think this may be the first time I have sat down at the computer this week! Oh well--I am ready to catch up! Last Tuesday and Wednesday Matt got to stay home due to the snow and we had lots of fun! It is always such a great surprise when we have extra time with him. (: On Tuesday we made playdough. Reid liked helping stir--as you can see in the picture he took it very seriously!
Lilly helped too!
Helping mix it all up. The recipe we used we got from this KNWA blog post.
The kids (all three of them--hehehe) had a great time.
Reid mainly tried to eat the playdough cutters but Lilly loved using the scissors. She kept saying, "I cut it!"
Team work!
We also made snow ice cream using this recipe from the KNWA blog. We used the one without sweetened condensed milk because we didn't have any!
I had to use some extra snow to get it to the right consistency but it was YUMMY! Need proof??
Here you go!

So good!
Then we made baked ziti for dinner. We substituted turkey and turkey sausage and used whole wheat noodles to make it as healthy as possible and is was still delicious.
Then, there was a lot of this!! Our new thing is pillows and blankets on the floor.
And some couch snuggling. If you can look at Matt in this picture, you can tell that he is 100% content and LOVING every single second of it!!

Your posts are so similar to mine. Our new thing is blankets on the floor too. Lauren thinks she is big stuff laying on the floor. The snow cream looks yummy!! I need to save the recipe for the Play Doh. Lauren is very into cutting it too!
