Snow Day!

 It snowed last night. We knew it was supposed to but I don't think anyone thought it would be this much. At least five inches, probably more. But I really wouldn't mind if it was like this all winter (yeah, someone remind me I said that about January). This is the perfect snow, so pretty but the road were just fine because they stayed warm and it didn't stick very well to them. So it is a marshmallow world out there today and it is so pretty!
 I love that the boys are big enough to actually be of some real help. Well, Matthew is.  Josh is just cute.
Then there was a snowball fight, that didn't have any injuries. I have to confess to grumbling because really, that first snow day is no fun for the mom. Trying to find the gloves, boots, snow pants and hats and then figure out which ones  still fit is a joke. But they had fun so I guess that is what matters.
Now I just want to bake and wrap up in a blanket and watch movies!

New Girls in the Shop...Finally!

Whew! I finally finished a big batch of dolls! They are in the Shop now looking for homes. I probably won't make another batch before Christmas so get them now if you are looking for a friend for a little girl you know!

Let it Snow!

It is supposed to snow here in the next day or two. I'm ready! Well, not really. I have loved this Indian Summer we have been having and I don't know what I will do when I can't throw the kids outside to play anymore, but my door is ready! I spent 45 minutes today making this wreath for my door for this Christmas. I realized in all of my wreath making sessions I have never made one for Christmas. The one we have been using we got the first year we were married. That was almost 20 years ago. It was time for a new one! This one is made from a dollar store grapevine wreath and four tubes of the plastic ornaments they sell there. Oh and don't forget the hot glue. A lot of hot glue! I have to say making the wreath made me feel a little bit better about winter being around the corner!
