We had the first snow today. The boys were super excited. They wanted to run outside and build a snowman or ride their sled. I, on the other hand, hurried to finish all the chores that required driving before it started snowing so I din’t have to stick my nose outside for the rest of the day. While the kiddos were watching a movie, I took pictures of these snowflake painted stones I had made a few days ago, so the boys could have them afterwards, on this special day. I knew it wouldn’t replace the real snow and that eventually I would still have to bundle them up and go outside. Snow boots, mittens and snow pants welcome back to our mudroom! Sigh…

Step 1: Cover the stones in one two layers of light blue paint. Wait for the paint to dry
Step 2: Use a pencil to draw snowflakes of different shapes on the blue rocks
Step 3: Use white puffy paint to draw your snowflakes
Once the movie was over, we decided to go outside right away and make a snowman. We spent about two hours in the snow and ended up making not one but three snowmen. When we got back inside, we each had a cookie (left over from our Santa and elf treat gifts) and drank a cup of chocolate milk. My husband even made the first fire of the season. We had a blast and I even forgot to give the snowflake painted stones to the boys. Tomorrow is another day.
