My awesome kiddos woke me up this morning yelling, "It's snowing! It's snowing!"
Snow is pretty, yes I get that.
Snow is fun, yes, I can see that.
It's also cold, it makes a mess as it melts, it throws our whole schedule off, and Virginia (bless it's heart) has no clue how to deal with snow. As I write this, there has been snow on the ground for 20 hours and still the snowplows are not out - - go figure!
But the kids love it and they were excited.
I on the other hand was not so excited. First off, I had not slept well. I seem to have lost the battle that I have been fighting for the past two weeks - -- the cold has won and it has taken over my body. Ugh! So, I guess if it was going to snow, this would be a good day for it to do that - - I wasn't planning on going anywhere anyway!
So we spent our day watching movies.
One of our favorites "Singing in the Rain"
Except the kids changed the words today to "Singing in the Snow - - - we're just singing in the snow!"
We made some yummy oatmeal, butterscotch, chocolate cookies and
made sure we ate our fair share of those!
And, I made this...a little baby quilt.
It was just a great day to do a project just for fun. Since it was cold and snowy outside, a quilt is just the thing. This is a collection of 15 different Amy Butler fabrics. I tried a new pattern called the Magical Maze. It was quite easy and I really like how it turned out.
So fresh and bright!
