Not 1, Not 2, But 3! Yes, 3 Snow Days!!!

I can't believe the amount of snow that landed on Tuesday. Nor can I believe how tall the snow drifts are! But most of all I can't believe we got THREE days at home as a family! Matt has been working very diligently at home due to the rough roads. However, we have definitely taken advantage of some extra family time! Check out our Snow DayS activities!

Jeremiah is SUPER excited about all of this snow!
It's Sister's first MAJOR snow! She hardly knows it's so exciting!

Jeremiah and Daddy attempt to shovel the driveway. It's up to Jey's waist!

We don't own a sled...I know...we need one with hills like we've got. So Jey and Daddy have a bright idea to "sled" on his trike. He rides down the "tunnel" to be thrown off the bike after hitting the 4 foot snow pile at the end of the driveway. Who's idea was this anyway?

Sister wanted a chance to play in the snow! We brought the snow inside for her. Her and Jey drive over snowy mountains with Big Brother's monster trucks.

We needed a quiet activity during Sister's nap time and Daddy needed a snack (hard day at the "office" you know); so we made Cake Mix Cookies!
You will need:
1 box of cake mix (any flavor)
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
Mix all ingredient together. Spoon out on a greased cookie sheet. Bake on 350 for 10-12 minutes. And enjoy! Or ice with your favorite icing, then enjoy!

What Snow DayS Vacation would be complete without Snow Ice Cream! Thanks, Becca (my Sister) for the great recipe!

Tomorrow is back to reality! It's been fun and a week I will never forget!
