Yesterday we had our second snow day and Matthew decided he wants to cook by himself. As he said " I won't be the Boy Scout at camp that burns the food or does not know how to cook" "I will be the Boy Scout that knows how to cook and make a fire". Not sure what that is about.
He made all of us pancake for breakfast in the shapes of bear faces and with chocolate chips. He also helped me make bread and he made his dad lunch. He wanted to make apple pies, but instead went out to shovel snow for our elderly neighbors and came home with $3.50. He was so excited.
His dads lunch.
Matthew and Emily playing (freezing) outside.
These two made a small hill (they wheeled in snow from behind our fence) to sled on. I did take them to the school, but it was way too cold to stay long and not enough snow.
We are on our 3rd snow day. Due to freezing temperatures. We here in Albuquerque are just not used to the cold. Just wish we would of gotten more snow, because of the fire dangers we will have come spring. We are having rolling black outs and more than 20,000 homes don't have gas. Yikes! How I wish I had a wood stove.
Take care and stay warm,
