What should you do with two little boys when you are snowed in? Read The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. Spend as much time getting dressed in your snow pants, boots, coats, hats and gloves as you did spending time playing outside in the snow (it was only a high of 19 degrees today and then windchill was nine degrees...brrrrrr!)! Invite your friends from the neighborhood (who's preschool's were closed today) over for a playdate. Warm up spiced apple cider for your mailman and then miss him by a few minutes (we were terribly sad about this one and hoping we will catch him tomorrow). Spend time coloring pictures and completing a book of mazes. Go around your house and make "rug," "floor," "couch" snow angels because you forgot to when you were outside and it's just too cold to go out again and do the real thing. Sit on the floor and sing Christmas songs you learned in music class. Play chase around the house when your daddy comes home a few minutes early to surprise us!!
That's at least what we did on our snowy day! What did you do with yours?
(Sorry for no pictures of this day. We are still without a camera and are making mental and written pictures of these special moments. :))

This is a picture similar to my camera that is no longer working. Could this be worse timing? So now I am frantically trying to research what kind of camera to get, SLR or point-and-shoot? Should I go with a Canon or a Nikon? Oh, the questions are endless. If you have a camera that you love and would recommend to me, it would really help me out!!
