Well, 2014 has certainly been fun!
Living in the midwest, particularly our part of the midwest, snow can be hit or miss. We always seem to be on the cusp of any snow storm that has potential to close the county.
Not this year!
Winter Storms Henry and Ion shut us in, even giving the kids a few extra days off of school from Christmas/Winter break. The hardest part is dealing with the temperatures: The kids WANT to go play in the now, but it’s -7 degrees at 1:00 in the afternoon: not really happening.

Snow has kept them in for the most of the past 2 weeks, and they’re getting stir crazy in the house. Wasn’t it just a couple of weeks ago when we could go for a walk? Now we can’t even step outside the house.
It was so cold today that we tried the whole “toss boiling water into the air to make snow” thing. Yup, it totally worked. And it was awesome!
The girls were able to get ahead on their bible quizzing verses, and our son is enjoying all the toys he got for Christmas. But they really miss their friends and having someone other than their sibling to play with.
My husband had shown them the infamous “Bread and Milk” YouTube videos, and our theatrical children wanted to make their own.
And so, we did.
We were in fact running low on milk, but the Level 3 Emergency that we were under (making it illegal to be on the roads) was going to be lifted soon.
Regardless, the kids had a blast making this, and I crack up every time I see my son on the screen.
