We Got Real Snow!

We actually got some real snow today! We were all VERY excited!
Lyric wanted to play, but the two little girls just wanted to eat it.
Cadence stayed out for a little while, but she wasn't too big on the cold!
Daddy and the girls built a snowman.
Of course, we had to make ice cream.
The girls thought it was pretty yummy!
It took Daddy straight back to his childhood.
The girls decided it was pretty fun to fall down.
Story didn't want to wear her mittens, but decided it was kind of hard to play with COLD hands.
Daddy and Lyric ended the afternoon with a snowball fight.
It was a fun, fun day! If only we could have snow everyday:-)

White Chicken Chili

We had another yummy recipe from Eat Better America last night, White Chicken Chili.
It was REALLY good! Cadence and I put 'apacado' on ours.

Valentine's Salt Dough Ornaments

Yesterday afternoon Story and I saw this idea and decided to try it.
We dried them out and plan to paint them today.
It was a busy fun Valentiny day.

Conversation Heart Graphing

We don't do a lot of "schooly" things around here, but when I saw this activity I thought the girls would enjoy it.
We colored the hearts.
When I say 'we' I do mean we. Cadence wasn't really in a coloring mood, so she had me do most of hers.
We then laid out the hearts.
After laying out the hearts we moved them to the graph. Lyric does this all the time with her M&Ms without the paper graph.
Cadence got bored in the middle of it and started watching a squirrel.
She then took over the camera and tried to take a picture of it... she missed.
Of course, we ate lots of the candy!

Tic Tac Toe

I saw this cute Valentine's Tic Tac Toe board and I just had to make it for the girls.
Such a cute and simple idea!
The girls LOVED it!
