this is how...

I spent my snowy Saturday...

We had planned to be snowed in today with the forecast saying we could expect anywhere from 5 to 15 inches of snow. Well... we got less than an inch. Instead, we got a lot of freezing rain with a lot of strong winds. We still stayed inside all day.

After breakfast, I crawled back in bed and read the new book I started a couple of days ago. After a bit, Danielle joined me and we enjoyed some quality mother-daughter pillow talk.

A little later I made some chocolate chip muffin tops.

This was after Don and Danielle made fried rice, after I put a roast and potatoes in the crockpot, and during the time Dani made fun-fetti cookies. It was a cooking and baking kind of day.

In case you're wondering what Jake was doing, he and his band were jamming in the basement.

I played a few games on POGO, read and commented a couple of blog posts, checked my email, and then... read some more of my book.

After Dani's birthday dinner, which was scrumptious, Hollee came over and we played cards. This is how we enjoy many Saturday nights. Don wanted me to mention that he won the game this night - which is a rare occurrence. Way to go Don.

I am now writing this post while the kids are playing Super Mario Bros. on the Wii. And now that I'm done, I'm going to go read my book. Good night all.

I love coming over here and seeing your blog. It is just so pretty! Love the lavender.

Your family time sounds wonderful. And delicious:) I had no idea you could get pans for muffin tops. I never thought about how you would make them. I'll have to look for one. Panera muffin tops are my favs.

Good job on the win Don!! It sounds like you had a great rainy/snowy day with your family! I am going to send you our family reunion website. I am not sure how they made it but maybe you can figure it out by looking at it. I think someone might have created it themselves from scratch? Maybe!

Have a nice Palm Sunday. I'm glad we went to church last night because we couldn't get out of our driveway this morning :)
