Snow Day

Today it snowed most of the day. It actually started sometime during the night, as we were sleeping, and we woke up to several inches. It continued until late afternoon. Of course, the kids couldn't wait to get out in it and I kind of dreaded it as I know the mess. But, they went out and had a lot of fun and actually stayed out a pretty long time. Then they came in and had hot chocolate. I think Tess stayed out the longest. 




































































































After they had their hot chocolate, Bethany got out her knitting loom or whatever it is called, and started working on a hat for her doll. We had gotten two different colors of yarn so she could make a hat for each of the dolls she got for Christmas -- she got twins, a boy and a girl. 



















































Then Tess decided to get out the sewing kit she got for Christmas and Caroline got out the embroidery set she got. Everyone wanted to sew or make something. Even Sarah got in on it - she is usually not that interested in doing many crafts or sewing. After watching everybody for probably almost an hour she decided to run and get her beads and make a necklace. 

It was nice. Everybody had something to do and if they didn't - Bella - they watched and played with all the yarn and scraps of material. It was a very pleasant afternoon.

  1. What a wonderful, peaceful day. The kids did great on their crafts. It's so nice to see something other than electronics in the hands of children today. I continue to pray for Joey, and hope he is starting to bounce back from his chemo days.

  2. I just love your blog, love your photos, and have such a soft spot inside for your kids. I wish I didn't live on the other side of the country! I'd love to be "hang out together" friends.

    1. You are so kind. You know how I love reading about your family, too. I think we may have much in common.
