Cure for the Blah day Blues

Remember how I posted about us being UBER-bored last week when school was cancelled? I came up with a few semi-fun things for the kids to do that day. They had fun. Of course they also occasionally ask to play with wooden spoons, but who am I to judge?

We played Two Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed.

Their favorite part was falling off and bumping their heads.

I built a fort by putting a blanket over the kitchen table. They played with their toys underneath there for hours. Mason stood up and clocked his head a few times pretty hard, but they had a blast.

(Corinne is such a poser. Is there a weirdo gene? If so, I think Tony must have passed it on. Also, check out my circa 1987 rust brown linoleum floor. Man, would I love to replace that! Maybe the Smithsonian would like me to donate a portion for historical purposes.)

We also baked a HoHo cake. It was delicious! We inhaled it all before I could get a picture of that slice of heaven.

Here’s to hoping there isn’t another snow day this winter. Not sure what we would do next time around.

  1. Greta,
    Your kids are so adorable and they are getting so big! I noticed your link on Beth’s website and had to peek at you guys. You are such a fun mom – I’m sick of coming up with fun things to do inside. The monkeys jumping on the bed is something we may need to try 🙂
    Good to see you guys!
