Easter Decorating Begins on a Snow Day

I have lost count of all of the snow days this winter, and it ain't necessarily over yet. We had yet another last week, this one caused by ice from freezing rain to be exact (but we still call them snow days in this house). Our driveway was a skating rink in the morning.

Of course, this means that we had the kids all day, but it's not a very demanding task anymore. Danica read a book, and they can both get lost in online games, be they on the computer, phone or tablet. We do, however, have to limit their time, and ask them to do other things.

In the morning, I let Danica try her hand at editing photos in Lightroom. She cropped and adjusted exposure and a few other things, such as clarity, for example. Meanwhile, JJ was helping Sue clean the coffee disks for recycling. Then, they did some colouring, which I choose not to participate in this time around.

In the afternoon, Sue got out the container of Easter decorations, and the kids began to help. The help didn't last long, however, as they were dressing up comically, clowning around, and making long videos after I had taken the following pictures,

Easy way to have fun on a bad weather day. It's amazing how kids can make simple props such a fun activity. And, yes, Easter will be here in scarcely a month and hopefully so will spring-like weather.
