Snow is on its Way!

Our first real snow storm of the season is on its way and it's gonna be a doozy!! They are calling for at least a foot of the white stuff and blizzard conditions. We are lucky...there are places that are going to be getting 2 feet of snow from this storm.

So what does the snow mean for us.....Family Time!!! Chris usually works on Sundays but he had put in to take it off so we could go to church as a family. We won't make it to church in this kind of weather but at least Chris won't have to drive to work in it either (yes, no matter the weather he still has to be at work for 5 am!).

So my plans----
Games---I picked up Yahtzee for $5 last night at Wal-mart. Can't wait to play that along with Uno and Mancala. All family friendly games that even Alex (who is 7) can play easily.

Food---Hot chocolate, popcorn, brownies, these are a few of my favorite things : )

Movies---We rented all 3 Santa Clause movies from the library so we will be watching them while eating the brownies, popcorn and drinking the hot chocolate : )

Reading---I just got in Family Feasts for $75 a Week by Mary Ostyn.

Cuddling---I've got to keep my Nicholas toasty warm!!!

What about you.....any plans for the weekend?

Fun! How has your blizzard been? I remember those days well... something really cozy about all being snowed in together. :)

I'm excited to watch some fun Christmasey movies together... we got A Nativity Story from the library, and just rented Elf (I keep hearing fun comments about it... haven't seen it yet), and am hoping to get It's a Wonderful Life from either the library or the video store for Christmas Eve. It's out at the moment...

so how much snow did you get?? Hope you had fun being snowed in! :)

I just finished reading that it from my library. :) My review, it is a pretty decent book. None of her tips were things that I didn't already know. I did find some new recipes to try though. :D Going to copy them down so that I can send the book back to the library. :)

How much snow did you get? We got 21 inches. It was crazy and the kids had a blast! I got a little tired of laundry and wet clothes, but I am glad we had more than the usual 1 inch that melts in a day.
