The snow started around 5pm yesterday, and the precipitation continues today. We're getting a wintry mix today, and it's expected to freeze overnight. The wind chill this morning is 9 degrees. For now, we are staying inside.... I've just had over an hour of mostly quiet and cooperation between the two kiddos. How did I do that? It's all thanks to Grandma RL. She had these stored at her house for a while, and brought them to me around Christmas. I've had them put away too, until it was just the perfect occasion.
What is the mystery of keeping your kids occupied indoors when it's snowing outside?
"Retro" Legos - lots and lots of them! Two buckets worth, supplemented with McToys. These aren't that old - I think they were Aunt L's - but the kids were still completely thrilled to play with them today!
