It’s not often Xyra gets sent home early due to weather. Even less frequent for Franz. Both were home by 3 the other day due to the snow falling in southeastern
. Xyra shoveled the drive and front porch right away,
but soon her work was covered in fresh snow. Pennsylvania
So I grabbed the new winter wear Melody got from Lady Vanyer and headed outside.
Brrrrrr. I’m glad this is so tightly knit!
Just look how white the snow is.
Okay, it’s too cold. I’m heading back inside!
[Note: my boot prints were covered in less than 10 minutes.]
Back Inside...Where It's Warm!
Haley, Kaya, Kirsten, Lanie, Melody, Xyra, 2 or more
Hey, Kirsten! Glad you came back inside. Want some hot chocolate?
Lanie, want to help?
What kind should we make today?
Let’s make this pink chocolate.
I’ll get the little glass tea pot so we can see it better.
Yeah! It will pour better that way too.
Here we have added a little bit of real milk to the powder to start it and make the final drink a little richer.
That certainly is pink!
Yeah! Looks great!
Now we'll add the hot water.
Oh, it got even more pink!
Do you really have to ask?
Do you prefer whipped cream, marshmallow creme, or marshmallows in your hot chocolate? We like all the options, but the whipped cream was easier for this story.
Anyone up for a game?
I’m going to check blogs and our Webkinz – you all play without me.
Let’s try this new game…Tenzi.
[The first roll picture turned out really blurry, so we aren’t using it.]
This is fun!
What number are you working on? I've got 2.
Too bad we can’t mix and match…I keep rolling 5s.
Woo hoo! I win!
And you were complaining about being behind!
What games do you like to play when you are home in bad weather?
Have a great day! Hoping you are staying warm; we've read the cold temperatures are reaching as far south as Texas.
