Ice Ice Baby and Starbucks Giveaway

Jan 16-31.jpg

Yesterday I woke up to a surprise…

Old Man Winter had come for a visit and left me a gift of snow and ice. In the south, it is a rarity and not appreciated at all. I still had to get to the church which is 25 miles away from where I live. As I was headed for the interstate, I received a message that said bad wrecks and interstate was at a standstill, so a little detour and I take the old highway.

I have been gone about 15 minutes, (by this time I normally would be just a few miles away) when I received another message this time from my church letting me know that services where canceled. At this time, on a Sunday morning, most of everyone is still tucked snuggly in their beds but because we have to be at church so early to help prepare for services, I wasn’t in my bed snuggling, I was on ice and snow.

My daughter had spent the weekend at her grandfather’s house so there was no turning around and heading home for me, so “ice ice baby” it was until we finally arrived to pick her up and head the 25 miles back home.

But we did make it home safe and spent the rest of the day indoors, on the couch with a cup of hot coffee, while a steaming crock pot of chicken and vegetables smelled the house up till dinnertime.

I can’t be too upset though, I think it was in perfect timing for MamatheFox’s “Ice Ice Baby” Giveaway Hop. And what better way than to warm than with a cup of Starbuck’s!

Winter Fun Mini Play and Learn

The Holidays may be over but winter is in full force. Blizzards in the North followed by bone-chilling temps in the South. And what is with the snow in Florida?

Having small children stuck inside during the winter has its challenges for sure. Finding ways to occupy small minds during the cold days will have you longing for warm summer days, green grass and sprinklers.

There is only so many cartoons to be seen, toys to play with and mess to be made before the children are bored again and mom is pulling her hair out!

That is where my Winter Fun Mini Play and Learn Printable Pack will help with a few more hours of play time for the kiddos and quiet time for the moms

In the pack you will find the following fun activities:

  • Memory Matching Game
  • Counting Practice
  • Word Search
  • Coloring Sheets

What you will need to have on hand:

  • Crayons or Markers
  • Scissors
  • Cardstock and Laminate (if you prefer longer lasting durability)
  • A Printer
  • Paper

I have included a list of my favorite SnowDay Children’s Books that fit perfect with this Winter Theme!
