This week, we finally are in the throes of winter here in Ohio! I actually like winter, and it seems like I'm always in the minority. I like hunkering down for a winter storm, watching movies, and making hearty meals that we eat downstairs while watching a movie. And no, we don't do that all the time...but a good snowstorm is cause for special things! This particular winter, we've introduced the munchkins to Star Wars...and they LOVE it!! We had the original trilogy on VHS, but I found a sweet deal on Amazon for both trilogies, so I picked them up. We are having so much fun watching them as a family! I make some kind of special snack, we all get into our pj's, build a fire, and snuggle up in the basement to watch the power of The Force. Kendall is sooooo into it. It helps that she got Lego Star Wars for the Wii for Christmas, of course...but now she is obsessed with the movies and the entire storyline. I love it!
On Wednesday the kids had a 2 hour delay, yesterday they had an early dismissal due to the deteriorating road conditions, and today is a snow day. So what are they doing right now? Watching Attach of the Clones. OF course. But hey, I'm good with it. I may even go down and join them!
Yesterday after the early dismissal, they got bundled up and headed out in to the snow. They were so excited to have more than just a mere dusting of snow to play in! Out came the sleds, snow pants, and boots...and they were off! Of course, I had to take a few pictures...
It seems to be cold everywhere right now...what are you doing to try to lighten up the days of winter and make them a little more fun?
