By George I think I got it!!!

Yesterday I had the ingenious idea to send the kids out to play!It was a steamy 45 degrees out side with the sun shinning and the birds chirping! So I armed them with sweaters, snow boots, a big spoon and bowls and I swear it was an inspired idea!For the next hour and 45 minutes they happily entertained themselves making snow food and enjoying the fresh air! I, on the inside got tons of house work done and manage to catch myself staring out the window at them with a smile on my face!They were too cute!So content with the world around them and happy to be kids!

So there you go folks!All it takes is a spoon and a bowl and you get the makings of a wonderful afternoon!

OK that is a great idea that I will be trying soon. But not today, today the high in Denver is 69 degree's. I love it here!!!

You'd better believe I'll be doing that today! Except it's MAYBE 20 today - warm enough!

Here's a great idea my sister in law did with the kids when they were up there in the snow...we don't have any so I can't do it here, so I'll pass it on. Get some food coloring and mix it with water and put in spray bottles. Let them go outside and paint in the snow! It should make for another fun afternoon :o) Glad you got a little break!

What a brilliant plan you had! If it was 45 here we'd be inside with the heat on! It's been raining here for a couple of days and I'm ready for sunshine and dry roads! Miss you! Oh, did you take any pictures of the snow play?
