Darn you, Punxsutawney Phil!

Ugh! Make the snow stop!

Goodness ... this is getting a little ridiculous. And I'm running out of ideas of things to do when we are snowed in. Three year old triplet boys couped up in a house day after day can get precarious very quickly.

So far we have gone sledding ...

Yes, even Mommy went down the hill, but Hayden won the prize by catching major air on the jump!

Painted ceramic dolphins ...

We wore Daddy's undershirts and covered the table in white butcher paper. Good thing, too, because they got a little adventurous with the paint brushes.

Watched the Muppet's version of 'Ode to Joy' many, many, many times ...
The boys are OBSESSED with 'Ode to Joy' right now. While searching for the new GE Healthyimagination commercial that has 'Ode to Joy', I stumbled across this -- and have regretted it ever since:

Made "snow ice cream" ...
This stuff is FABULOUS. It's just snow, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla, but it seriously looks and tastes just like ice cream.

So what do you do to keep your toddlers occupied when you are snowed in?

Ooops ... got to run. We are busy turning our family room into a fort, and the cookies are ready to come out of the oven!

painting ceramic dolphins? I don't think you need help in the creative department!
Right now my kids are very into painting w/ water colors, and coloring with dots - like markers that you press down and they make a dot... they're cool!
