Schools were canceled, the roads were empty.
It was wonderful.
I like getting buried in snow at least once every year
(and then it can all go away!).
We made cookies and watched "Rocky and Bullwinkle"
and mostly lazed around.
I’m hoping to do more of it tomorrow
along with a few "gottas"
(gotta do laundry, gotta clean the dining room,
gotta get a package together, gotta finish making 8 million holiday cards…).
But I’m still gonna eat cookies and lounge around.
It’s the season!
I recommend you lounge around too
but if you want to play online
here’s some fun links of this, that and the other…

"Our research suggests that ultra-clean, ultra-hygienic environments early in life may contribute to higher levels of inflammation as an adult, which in turn increases risks for a wide range of diseases," including cardiovascular disease, Thomas McDade, lead author of the study, said.

3. Several friends have recommended this free software lately.
Kids can make stick figures and animate them to tell fun stories.
4. I love browsing this blog!
Every tasty project looks good enough to frame.
5. Here’s the recipes and articles Daryl has put up so far
on Cooking With Kids.
The banana bread is now a staple around here for snacks
and it’s much lower fat than most.
Daryl lets the kids mash the bananas with their (clean) hands.
They love it.
6. Lastly, I wrote up some
parenting secrets for peaceful holidays
because I’m all about peaceful holidays.
