Please ponder for a moment.....

that the 12 members of my family are hunkered down in a 900 square foot house for who knows how long, while a snowstorm traps us all inside.
Please, send me your thoughts-what should we do-so that at the end of the storm-- we still have 12 members in the family......

Are you singers? One of the things I miss most about my growing-up family is singing together in multiple part harmony. Christmas Carols are the best!!!

(But our house had a whole lot more than 900 square ft. To quote the Grinch, "Oh, the noise, oh the noise, oh the noise, noise, noise, noise!" You definitely have my prayers!!!) :)

movie mania, wrap presents, bake, nap...does anything really work? How about 3-4 player games(short) and rotate with each other, shovel driveway, snowball fight...let me know if I helped. Kim

Pray....LOL!
Get outside and enjoy winter sports. Gatherall the wool items you can and bundle up and play in the snow. Outdoor winter sports are great fun, when you are properly attired in layers of wool and other natural fibers.
Sending Aves for your sanity.

Popcorn and a cheesy Christmas movie. Maybe some hot chocolate if that would not push anyone over the edge :O) ... I also like the Christmas Carols idea!!! Wish I could see some snow here in GA :O( Have a wonderful night!!

Oh no!! Thats rough. Maybe you should have an indoor picnic. Then snow cones:)

Board game championships, cheesey Christmas movies, cut paper snowflakes,my kids love to put water in spray bottles with food coloring then spray the snow outside, maybe review sewing embroidery skills,if you celebrate with Santa maybe you could make some reindeer food (oatmeal and craft glitter/sparkles) Put them in ziplocs make up directions and package them up for Christmas eve or for friends,haircuts, natural beauty stuff facials etc, or just pray a lot:D

I'll be praying for you:)
