Snow Day

We had a snow day today!

There was a lot of media coverage about this event, and the schools announced closures a full day ahead. I don't think it was nearly as bad as everyone thought, but I think the whole area decided we'd all like a day off and so we took one. The garbage pickup was cancelled. The mail didn't come. Even the zoo closed, and the zoo never closes!

Grace and I played outside. Clara stayed outside for about 30 seconds and then decided it wasn't for her.

We made a great snowman!

We made sugar cookies! We started with the dough.

So excited!

As you can probably guess, we got flour and dough all over the kitchen.

Decorating was fun too! Clara probably ate more sprinkles than she put on the cookies.

Grace took her job very seriously, of course.

What are we going to do with all these cookies? Grace wants to deliver care packages to our friends!


  1. Put some of those in the freezer til we get there :)

  2. Yay for snow days! Those cookies look yummy! Cedar City declared a snow day on Monday, for the first time in 61 years! Everyone was shocked, because snow days NEVER happen around here. But we got 18 inches out of the storm, so I think it was a good call. Traveling on city streets was downright treacherous!
