We are at the start of a snowstorm here and I am happy to say that Ben just arrived home from work early. He was supposed to finish at 9pm but they decided to close up shop early. At least now I won’t have to worry about him driving in the blanket of white I can see outside my window. The girls and I spent the day indoors getting started on some St. Valentine’s day decorations.
Every Friday for the last three weeks I have been taking the girls to the library nearby for their “Just For Two’s” program. Lucy adores it. Each week they have a theme and read books and have a craft based on it. Lucy’s favorite part seems to be the craft, mostly because she gets to use a glue stick I think. So today, I cut out a bunch of pictures from the flyers that looked valentines-ey and let her go for it. This is how it turned out:
Since we found out Ben was coming home early, I thought it would be fun to surprise him with Lucy’s favorite thing to bake…”A GIANT COOKIE!!!” (as she would say)
I hope all of you who are getting snow are able to enjoy it as much as we are. I think tonight we will put the kids to bed early and have supper just the two of us followed by me seriously whooping my husband in several hands of Rummy.
