Snow days around Christmas are more fun in my personal opinion. It adds to the magic of the holidays & amps your spirit up by many decibels. Another bonus is there are quite a few indoor activities you can do.
Here's how we spent it:
Assisting Philip while he worked from home.
Denver clearly did not think Annie's numbers were on target in this picture.
(For posterity's sake I should note I am of the opinion that Philip's new glasses look like they came from 1960 & I have all manner of jokes & comments about world events that occurred in the 1960's that I ask him to tell me about his personal experience with when he wears them - yes I'm that clever & funny.)
We put together our gingerbread house which I kept having to remind Annie (& still am to this day) that it will taste like a cardboard box if actually eaten, which is only slightly deterring her interest in injesting it.
Completed project - she is eating a leftover gum ball in this picture to treat herself for her good work.
The next activity we did was layer up in clothes & put on boots to go outside. Annie was anxious to build a snowman & "snow fight."
She quickly realized that snowball fights were not something she enjoyed as I pelted her with about 5 snowballs (in all honesty I had no desire to snowball fight so this was an effective method for cease fire).
Our snowwoman was small but had character.
After that we gathered up some snow & Annie enjoyed some snow ice cream with sprinkles.
We then were inside the rest of the day until we went out for dinner that night. That is unfortunately a problem I have. A snow day & being stuck in the house is a novel idea to me until about 4:30 in the afternoon & then I start to understand why Jack Nicholson's character went so crazy on The Shining. I need fresh air & to make sure the rest of the world is still out there.
It was fun though - we slept in (as much as you can with a 4 year-old & 6 week old child), ate Christmas snack-y food, watched some Christmas shows & played around all day.
