Snowy Day Must-Haves

Yesterday we woke up to a beautiful white blanket outside.  Alas, I cannot stay home and enjoy it again today (work, you know), but yesterday was just cozy and lovely.  So just for fun, I thought I'd post my snowy day must-haves.

1. Candles.  You cannot have a snowy day without lighting every candle you own.  At least that's my philosophy.  Preferably they are Yankee candles, because then the yummy scents will permeate your entire house.

2.  Hot chocolate!  Or a hot beverage of your choice.  Self explanatory.

3.  A fire.  In the wood stove of course.  The crackling adds a lot to the ambiance.

4.  A big, cozy sweater.  Time to dig it out of the dresser!

5. Jello.  I might be the only person on earth who does this, but I like to mix Jello with fresh snow and make my own snowcone-in-a-bowl.  I'm telling you, it's good stuff.  Lime is my favorite.

6. A good book.  I'm reading Stars Collide by Janice Thompson right now, and it's pretty cute.  I think a Mary Higgins Clark mystery is next on my list.

7.  Christmas music!  Of course!  I think this one is on my list to buy this year:

Merry christmas to you cd sidewalk prophets

8. Adorable children playing quietly on the floor.  Okay, you can enjoy a snowy day even if you don't have kiddos.  And having them play quietly is a rarity. But happy little voices are the highlight of these winter days to me.

Sounds perfect...but I'm not quite sure I'm ready for snow! However, I might need to try out that jello & snow trick, Elyse would probably LOVE it!

Crackling wood is the best!

Jello snow? Snow cream is popular around here, but I'm sure Natalie would love Jello snow. I'll have to try that if we get any snow here this year. I miss all the snow we got as a kid in NY. Your ideas make me want to cuddle up with a good book, a fire, and some candles!
