Isn’t it ironic that any other day of the year, my kids just don’t want to get out of bed to get ready for school, but with the anticipation of a possible snow day the next morning, they are all up even earlier the next day because, yes, a snow day has been called. Oh help! So, for hours now, my back door has been opening and closing with the traffic of snowy, wet children going in and out for sledding. It is good to be a kid for sure. Welcome them in with lots of steaming hot chocolate and fresh cookies or try my easy chocolate cake recipe. A snow day is a great day to include the kids in the baking. Whip up a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Fill the house with sweet smells, a glowing fireplace and lots of joy. Don’t worry parents – they should be back to school tomorrow.
