I cannot say I was shocked when I got the email last night notifying us that school was going to be closed today.  It was my turn to stay home with Mattie Windsor, so I got the pleasure of spending a fun-filled day with her. After a leisurely breakfast, it was time to check out the snow.

Making a proper snow angel was the top priority of the day.

After a few unsuccessful attempts to make a snowman, we opted to run around and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.

We eventually made our way inside in time for a quick bite of lunch before baking a fresh batch of granola.

With Valentine’s day only a couple of weeks away, we decided to make some button art…

I even made a few simple Valentine’s Day decorations for the house.

I used an old music book and cut letters out of the pages.

I taped the letters on pieces of twine

and hung them in the living room

and dining room.
