Snow Day!!

Oh to be a kid again! The only bummer was school got cancelled yesterday, a whole day before the storm even started. I remember as a child going to bed at night waiting anxiously for the morning to arrive to have my mom come in and tell me school had been cancelled. Seems as if the fun of it has been taken away,  none the less the girls were thrilled for our first official big nor’easter!


Long gone are the days with the big wooden sleds which weighed more than us that we’d have to lug up and down the hills. I found this snow seat for only a few dollars for a 2pk. that works great!


Getting plummeted by dad!


What’s the best thing about playing in the snow?? Coming inside to some of mom’s homemade hot chocolate!




I think some snow got to their brain! lol


Mom’s Hot Chocolate

  • milk
  • milk chocolate
  • cinnamon
  • marshmallows

Simmer some milk on the stove and bring almost to a boil, add chocolate and cinnamon and stir until chocolate is melted. Pour into mug and add marshmallows and a left over candy cane if desired.


Happy Snow Day!!
