Advent Activity Dec. 19 & 20

 On December 19th, the snow started falling about 3 pm, so we ended up with two activities for that day: play in the snow and eat Christmas spaghetti. 
The kids and I were home from school about 4:20, and we played outside for an hour, throwing snowballs at each other, shoveling the drive, attempting to sled (didn't work too well), and building a snowman with Darrin.  Then we warmed up with some Christmas spaghetti (green food coloring added to the pasta water) and homemade chicken parmesan meatballs.

On December 20th, we had a snow day! Our activity was make as many homemade goodies as we had the stamina for. While the kids were busy playing first thing, I made some homemade truffle hot chocolate to pass out to my coworkers and friends. Then the kids came to the kitchen and we made some spoons for mix-ins.  After lunch, we made some cut-out sugar cookies (a new recipe that's now my favorite) and after Darrin came home and we frosted them.  For dessert after dinner that night, we had to have some of the homemade hot chocolate stirring it with one of our spoons along with a sugar cookie.
