Their first time to see snow!!

C loved it!

We had enough to cover the ground, roof, and porch.

The front yard

As soon as we got to MDO this morning, it started sleeting. The kids had no idea what sleet was. They called it "silly rain". When we left MDO, it was still sleeting and the closer we got to our house, the less it sleeted and the more it snowed. At one point, it looked like we were driving through a blizzard. When we got home, we were surprised to see our house and yard "covered" in snow. The kids were in awe!! They weren't sure if they should touch the snow or not. They finally made a few snowballs and just ran around in the yard like crazy! Once we came inside, it began to snow heavily but soon disappeared when the sleet returned. By the time hubby got home, it was all gone!

My Little Chefs

3 little hands cleaning up left over brownie mix!

C with his decorated mouse cupcake!

M with her decorated mouse cupcake!

Z with her decoated mouse cupcake!

The completed project!

The kids LOVE to cook. In the past 2 months, they have helped me make chocolate covered pretzels, decorated sugar cookies, cupcakes, brownies, chicken casserole, soup, and fried catfish!! They are always asking if they can help me cook. I just recently purchased "Deceptively Delicious" that gives child friendly recipes that all have fruits and/or veggies hidden in them. Now it will be fun for them to ask me why we are putting spinach in the brownies!!!!!!!
