Our Southern Snow Day

Oh, the weather outside was mild,

But my restless children were wild.

So on our last day with no place to go,

We let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

For our Southern snow day brunch, I served pancakes and hot chocolate. One small and one large pancake made each snowman's body. Chocolate chips, berries and marshmallows filled in details to make eyes, buttons, a toboggan and snow drifts. And, of course, no snowman pancake would be complete without a bacon scarf to keep him warm! Cotton batting sprinkled with glitter made a soft covering of snow for our breakfast table, and snowman accessories completed the frosty look.

Soft snowman-covered fleece blankets monogrammed for each child were perfect for snuggling during story time, and we loved getting cozy with our new kittens Sonny and Sarah.
