Snow Day

No school today, 6 inches of snow keeps the school bus from running.

So the grand kids came to spend a day with Grandma and Grandpa.

I played with Lizzie and even made her a pony tail. I swear she's going to be a quilter. I got up from the quilt frame and went into the kitchen. When I came back she was standing in my chair. Okay well maybe she will be a climber instead of a quilter.

The best part of snow day is "Child Labor". Did I really just say that?

However Grandpa did reward them with some of Grandma's homemade cocoa with

Tonight it's 9 degrees with a wind chill of -20. It's suppose to be even colder tomorrow night. Keep warm everyone!

I am sure you are having a grand snow day!!

Karen said...

A little labor is a good thing! And we are buried in snow, with more to come! Me and my big mouth!

Yes, pretty much snowed in here. Maybe it is just the cold that makes me want to stay home.
I think Elizabeth will be a quilter one day.
Keep those grandkids safe and warm as I know you will.

It sounds like you had a fun day with the grands.

I am sure they are well rewarded for any labor they provide! :)

I'll bet those two didn't mind a little child labor a bit. Maybe we can turn your climber into a quilter eventually.

I'm tired of this cold!

Tipper said...

I just bet she will be a quilter someday : ) Glad they enjoyed the snow-and helped out too.

I wish I had a little grand daughter to put in braids, but ours are 2600 miles away.
This kind of weather is just right for quilting and grandkids. I think you will like my new book, out in early summer, the main character is a quilter, but she is also a bear.
