But Wednesday night, after dinner, Lar took Abigail to karate and within an hour, a sheet of ice was precipitated and then snow began falling, fat and fast, on top of it. Karate is 1.5 miles away and Larry was worried about making it home. These "light flurries" (as they had been called in the forecast that morning), put us out of school starting on Thursday. We found a lot to do with the kids inside. We had to; we had 11 straight days with them, which was only 1 day shorter than our Christmas break this year!
My favorite activity that I did with Abigail was to do a "mommy and me" painting.

Another thing that the kids chose to do (a LOT!) was playing in some of their costumes.
