The 3 C’s of a Snowday

When the weatherman has a winter storm forecasted to hit your area, every school-age kid secretly wishes for the same thing: A Snowday!
Today’s youth has their own version of making that happen. They sleep with spoons (I don’t get that one either), wear their pajamas inside out & backwards and may even sleep in the opposite direction in bed. When I was younger, the best we could do was cross our fingers and just hope for the best. We would wake up and hang on every word the RADIO announcer would say. Yes, they would read each and every school delay and closure. If your school name started at the beginning of the alphabet, you were in luck because you learned before most that you could sleep just a little bit longer. Disc jockeys in modern times rejoice that school closings are now announced via the local news channels. Most parents stare bleary-eyed at the TV trying to see the small print at the bottom of the screen wondering if school will be delayed or closed. If delayed, we moan and if closed we smile, remembering that special feeling of getting a “pass” for the day from Mother Nature.
I prepared for today just in case. I have all my baking supplies, craft supplies and as I mentioned yesterday, my holiday cards.
When the kids awake from there cozy slumber, I anticipate hearing giggles and a few “Woo-Hoo’s” before requests for pancakes and hot chocolate are made. After playing in the snow, we’ll trim our tree and dive into our 3 C’s for the day-
  • Cookies

  • Crafts

  • Cards

Thanks Mother Nature for giving us a magical day!

    Now THAT sounds like an awesome snow day. I hope that it went as nicely as you set out for it to!
    Our snow day didn't consist of the 3 C's (I wish it had!) but it was fun for the kids to go outside in the heavy, deep snow and to hang at home all day. A perfect first snow day!

    We recently had the threat (or is it promise) of a snowday here in Oregon and I was inspired by your post to make sure I had my three C's covered. Unfortunately the snow didn't materialize, but I still carved out some time to work on crafts and holiday cards.

    Thank you for your sweet note on my blog. I feel the same exact way! I've finally found a zen space in my head as we wait (and wait and wait) for word. I wish we could both go! Imagine how much fun we'd have.

    Pam- This was a GREAT snow day! The kids had a blast and were out ALL day! :) I got through 2 of the 3 c's; cards and crafts.

    Laurie- I wish we could both go too! We would definitely have fun- Vancouver would never be the same! Keep posting- I'll be reading! :)
