Then, on Wednesday, we were treated to the perfect winter lesson - a snow storm and a snow day! School was closed for Joe due to the weather, so Charlie and Lily got to spend a great morning cuddling with Daddy while watching Sesame Street.
Then they watched Daddy shovel the snow. They enjoyed it from afar, but were happy to stay inside where they were warm and cozy in their snowflake pjs.
Like any good snow day, you get a little restless after awhile, so Charlie amused himself by tormenting Roy. Roy was decidedly LESS amused.
We also had many, many readings of their new favorite book, Brown Bear, Brown Bear. They bring it to us over and over and over again.
In the afternoon we baked cookies. A few months ago my Mothers of Multiples group did a fundraiser at which I purchased tubs of Crayola cookie dough. It's sugar cookie dough that's brightly colored and made with pasteurized eggs so it's safe if kids eat it. We gave some yellow and blue dough to Charlie and Lily, along with some sprinkles and white chocolate chips and let them go to town. Unfortunately, there was more tasting than shaping the dough.Our finished cookies. Masterpieces, no?
Then, after a much needed bath, Charlie and Lily took time to text their peeps to tell them all about their fun day. It's important to stay connected, even on a snow day.
