When the weather dips down into the single digits around these parts, everything goes into shut down mode. No, there isn't an inkling of snow on the ground, but it is freezing COLD outside Frigid, really! For us thin blooded southern folks, anything below freezing is considered arctic-like and we aren't cut out for it! As silly as it may sound, the south really isn't equipped to handle the extreme cold. Water pipes burst, power outages happen, and schools close.
Actually for us, the boys have had a two hour delay to their school day this week, and Sophie's preschool has not opened.
If I'm honest, it's actually been really nice to kind-of ease back into the school routine. After being on Christmas break, starting our day at a much slower pace is a welcomed treat!
Both of my girls are fighting colds too, so it's been nice for them to just rest at home!
Since it's been too cold to venture out these days, the littles and I have tried to stay busy (and warm) in the house.
There may be no snow outside, but the kids had a blast making these coffee filter snowflakes inside!
But when there's no snow in the forecast any time soon, we just pretend and get silly in the kitchen with our own "snow"!
I added just a bit of food coloring to some shaving cream and the littles were happy to sit and play for an hour!
When the boys got home from school in the afternoon, they helped me make these bad boys from the pioneer woman!!!
The recipe took a little time to make, but was ABSOLUTELY worth it!!!!! These homemade doughnuts just melt in your mouth, and are bet-you-can't-eat-just-one-GOOD!!!
We have another two hour delay today, so I promised the boys doughnuts and hot cocoa for breakfast!
A sweet start to another COLD day!
