Snow Day!!

We are home for the third time this week due to snow. You know you have had too many storms when your kids complain that they can't go to school for final exams. Go figure! Well, here are a few shots that tell a lot about what a "snow day" looks like at our house.

Making the kids "to die for waffles"

Cheering up the very disappointed students with my "to die for waffles" (If I had audio on this blog you would here many moans of delight.)

Waffles are all gone. Now what do we do? Play with fire! 

In Maine we like plaid for the cold weather. Katie got all hers on. A fashion diva.

Well, there you have it folks. The kids have decided to go sliding and the house is quiet. Here is the recipe for.... 

2 -1/4 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 Tablespoons sugar
2 beaten eggs
2-1/4 cups milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Stir together the dry ingredients.  Beat the eggs.  Add eggs, milk and oil to the flour mixture and stir.  Do not overmix, the batter will be slightly lumpy.
Cook in your favorite waffle maker.

I hear we are due for a BIG storm on Tuesday. Enough already!


  1. Oh my goodness! That first picture had me totally confused. Is it a tree? Sasquatch? Swamp Thing? Ewok? ... Steamer? Why would someone put their steamer out on the deck in the snow? IT'S A DOG!?!

    LOL That cracked me up.

  2. LOL! Of course it is. He is also a great snow catcher, drool spinner, table cleaner, counter surfer. Newfs are great people, oh I mean dogs.
