SNOW DAY!!!!!!

Yup, we had our first snow day yesterday! Boy was I happy!! I didn't get to sleep in, but I didn't have to go out in all that blustery goodness outside!! It was horrible! Blizzard and whiteout.......fun fun FUN!! Well, that's Southwestern NY for ya! Well anyhow........Julie got to stay home from school......she went outside to play a couple times, then came inside to have hot chocolate and take a nice hot bath to warm herself up! We didn't have boots for Rachel yet, so we couldn't take her outside to play......
Later that night after daddy got home, we started a game of Monopoly.....Julie's first time with this game......I think we've created a monopoly monster, lol!! She's getting the hang of it and she's only 6!!!! We got tired and left the game on the dining room table to play the next day!

We woke up this morning (saturday) and started playing again.......lol.....let me tell ya, Julie is really hooked! I played for awhile more, then I left to take Rachel and go to Walmart.....we got some more stuff to make cookies and we found Rachel a pair of boots! Yay!!!! After we got home, daddy was cleaning the rugs and told us that he beat Julie in Monopoly! Julie had to sell her three railroads to pay $950 rent to daddy for one of his properties........it was funny to hear daddy tell about it..........anyhow........I think this game will definately be a family favorite to play from now on!

This weekend I am also participating in a Christmas online scrapbooking crop at From Here 2 Scrapternity It's a great place to meet friends, get some great inspiration from their gallery, and also have a wonderful time chatting away! Please stop by and let them know I sent you! There are some really great challenges and prizes to help get you motivated! If you get a chance, come check it out!

Build a Bear Workshop surprise for Julie!

WOWZERS, what a loooooooooooong day! A very good day, but very long!
Here was our schedule, lol!
Wake up, have breakfast and get dd Julie off to school
Do some picking up and cleaning around here and take shower
Pick dd Julie up at school at 11:15a.m. (she had a short day due to parent/teacher conferences)
Go to Paper Factory store, Tim Horton's, and then head to Erie, Pa. for dd Julie's surprise day!
Arrive in Erie at Millcreek Mall............head to Build-a-bear-workshop!
Had fun there at Build a bear workshop........LOVE that place!! dd Julie made a bunny, made her sister a bear, and made one for her cousin's baby to be. We then picked out outfits for her bunny and Rachel's bear. What a great idea this store is! Love, Love, LOVE it I tell ya!!!!
Then walked around the mall to various stores, and to ACMoore, Michaels, and then to dinner!
Dinner at Old Country Buffet, and then to Chuck E. Cheese's for some play time!
After that we stopped by Joann's to check out some stuff!
Then finally, started back home to take grammy home.
Got to grammy's and I went in to grab a pepsi, and some christmas lights.
Came out of grammy's holding the lights, stepped down the two outside steps and slipped in the mud!!
Down I went! Pants got ALL filled with mud on the back side.......talk about cold! lolol!!
Oh well, didn't get hurt, just all muddy, lol!
Had to take them off so I didn't get mud all over the truck for the ride home, lol!
Got home and hubby brought me out another pair of pants.
Came inside and got dd's ready for bed!
She loved the Build-a-bear-workshop and is so very thankful for her wonderful grammy!
What a wonderful day! (well, except for slipping in the mud that is, lol!!)
Hopefully, pictures to follow pretty soon of B.A.B.W.! Stay tuned!
