Ugh, gym classes are canceled again this morning.  Linda had a sinking feeling when she woke up at 5:10 a.m. that she wouldn't be working.  After checking the closing/delays on her phone..sure enough, schools delayed 2 hours.  When that happens, gyms usually don't hold their groupX classes.  There is barely a dusting of new snow and our road (which is a side road and a little bit hilly) looks totally cleared.  By 9:00 a.m. Linda had done her devotions,cleaned the whole house, laundry was done and put away, and she made these melt-in-your-mouth healthy muffins.  It's super easy clean up because you just hand stir and everything is made in one bowl!
The recipe only has a little added sugar because it is sweetened with 3 large bananas and Greek yogurt.  She decided to add some different mix-ins since there wasn't any sprinkles in the pantry. Three have dark chocolate chips; three have walnuts, three have mini-M&M's (those are for dessert) and three are plain.  There was enough batter left for a mini loaf pan too. 

Aunt Tierney calls Penny "Muffins" 
Penelope loves the Dora coloring book that Nana gave her for doing so great with her potty training. She basically figured the whole process out in 3 days (with a lot of help from Mommy.) I'm sure there will be accidents but she is totally into the big-girl Princess underwear and tells Sarah when she needs to go. 

While Linda was cleaning this morning, she stepped out on to the deck to wipe the dog paw prints off the outside of the sliding glass door.  The Windex froze right to the glass!  In an instant there was just a sheet of ice.  Linda tried to wipe it off, but the Windex just made more ice and it wouldn't budge.  She was afraid to use warm water on it just in case it cracked the glass.  Hah!  I guess school got delayed because its only 9 degrees out and not from the 1/8" of snow!
