Lil brothers and sisters get to come to Besties T&K Our Valentines...Be Mine! Heart shaped pizza for lunch with fresh fruit and veggies The Party!
Being a home school Mom there are certain things I don't want my kids to miss out on not being part of an actual school. We have an amazing group of friends that home school so lucky for them they don't have to miss out on a lot!
My dear friend Amie usually opens up her home to host all of our wonderful home school parties. This is the 1st annual Valentine party... home school style!
snow ice cream even Pia liked it Big grins she ate the whole thing NO yellow snow getting the snow the gear
The mid west just got dumped on! I don't even know how much snow we actually got but it is amazing. I think it broke the record for our state. I grew up with snow cold weather and winter 7 months out of the year. I now live far from home and we are lucky to get a couple inches a year.
This week though has been amazing. I look out my windows and I would swear I was anywhere but here. The streets are covered in snow. I haven't bee able to get my car out the driveway for 5days or more.
It is fun though knowing this will probably be once in a lifetime. A friend told me about a fun snow activity I had never heard of. Making ice cream out of snow. My children are young and they love the snow but I was so unprepared. All we have are rain boots, only one of children has a "real" coat and our gloves are fleece for warmth not waterproof for snow. So this was the perfect activity for us.
Our driveway a look down our street My Knight in Nikes digging us out We knew a storm was coming through the night but we had no idea what we would wake up to the next morning. This morning we looked out the window to see TONS I mean TONS of snow! We were so unprepared with gear. I had gone to the store and gotten food etc... but we have no sleds no snow pants etc... I did my best with what we have because the kids wanted to go on a snow hike. They started this last Christmas when we were in PA visiting my parents.
My father LOVES to hike and he loves to take the kids when we come. Normally it is spring, summer fall but we did manage to head back last year for Christmas. He took them on their normal spring hike but this time it was covered in snow thus the snow hike. Living in OK we rarely get snow and we NEVER get it like this!
Anyway I got out all the gear I could to pile on them and off we went into the winter wonderland. Caleb buried waist deep in snow soon realized this pretty white fluffy stuff was a lot cooler when it wasn't down his boots covering his legs and falling to the point he couldn't see. We made it to the end of our driveway not kidding probably 15ft before everyone was following me back inside I was going to get the camera they were coming back in!
So the snow hike was very short to the end of the driveway and back 30ft tops! Oh well Daddy made chili we ordered Secretariat on paper view and had a wonderful day trapped inside enjoying the snow through the windows.
Oh the title for this blog is what Caleb said to me when he was up extra early this morning at a little before 7. We got to open the front door and check out the snow before all the other sleepy heads and he said WOW MOmmy that is AW. SOME so cute love that little dude!
