Snow day update

I have to admit, I was not thrilled about having a snow day today. This week is C.R.A.Z.Y at work. I thought the kids school and Perry's would close, but surely not the university! Very rarely does a university have a snow day and we've already had 2 this year (which I think is the most I've ever had in my 17 years of working in higher ed!) In the end, we're all having a good relaxing day. The bummer is that the kids and Perry have exceeded the built number of snow days and will need to make them up at the end of the year (I, on the other hand, don't!). Here are a few things we did on this snowy day.

We played checkers (including Sneakers!). Elise was scheduled to have a pj day at school today. Since school was called off, she felt it was only fair to stay in her pj's. We have to agree!

We rented some Redbox movies. Did you know you could rent them online and then just pick them up? You can see the inventory at each location and make your selection all online. Then, you go pick them up knowing exactly what you are getting.

Carson set up an Army fort and played with his Army toys.

Elise and I finally worked on her scrapbook. My mom had a brilliant idea and got Elise her own "scrapbook" that she can work on right along side of me.

I love your scrapbook pages! They're so pretty. How did you get Elise do such nice pages? I'm always afraid to let Erin go her own way.

I like Elise's idea of having a jammie day. I'm always up for those.
