Snow Day and Cupcakes and...Christmas Lights?
Yippee Yea! We FINALLY had a snow day on Wednesday, I say "we" because a day off from school for the kiddos also means a day off from getting them ready for school and helping with homework for Mom! It was a nice, middle-of-the-week break. Thanks snow and freezing rain!
We stayed in our jammies and watched a Disney channel movie...okay, we actually watched three in a row but don't tell! We ate warm soup for lunch in front of the TV. Lulu took a nap, she had a little cold and was feeling kinda under the weather. CJ wanted to play outside but alas, his snow pants and boots were at school! How ironic! The Fourth grade is in the middle of their skiing unit in gym class and all the students must bring winter wear for cross country skiing and snow shoeing. So, being the middle of the week, all his stuff was still at school! Poor boy, he found some video games to play instead.
In the afternoon, Lulu decided she wanted to make something. We thought cupcakes would be a yummy treat. Being the prepared mom (hoarder) that I am we went shopping in the unruly pantry. I am going to clean that space out SOON, I seriously am. Anyway, cake mix? Check. Frosting? Check. Cute Valentine's Day cupcake papers? Oh yea! Check, I am good. Valentine's Day sprinkles and sugar for decorating? Check. So off she went, and made some very pretty, very "Lulu pink" cupcakes! And since the last thing I need in my house are 24 cupcakes calling to me all day long, I drove them to school on Thursday so Lulu could share them with her friends at lunch! She shared them with her teachers too. Lulu got a kick out of that, she said in elementary school when the kids would pass out birthday treats, some of the teachers would politely say "no thank you". The Middle School teachers were like "OH MY GOSH, A CUPCAKE!!!!! OF COURSE I WILL HAVE ONE!!!" Apparently when you have to deal with 12-14 year old students all day your concern with sugar and calories goes right out the window! Too funny! ☺
