More Snow Day pics!

Just wanted to share what we did on our snow day...

A big, red (pink?) heart,

a snow bunny,

and...snow cones. (those were Em's idea!)

And where are the older two children? Absent from the snow, for certain. They did not participate in the revelry of the snow. They were happy to hang out inside where it was warm and DRY. This snow was so wet! It wasn't staying warm that was a problem, it was trying to stay dry.

But Em and I had fun.

Today, Buttercup went in for her spay surgery. Wow! She's six months already. It's quieter around here this morning without her playing and running around.

Aw, enough cuteness.

What's the opposite of cute? How about cleaning the fridge -shudder-. Ugh, well it's just gotta be done. Maybe I'll just have to look at puppy pics when I'm done.

Buttercup is suppose to ready to be picked up between 3-5. She'll need some down time to recover but I know the kids (and I) will be ready to have her back!

Snow day!

So far today we have received 7.3 inches of snow. The record is 7.8 inches. It's still snowing. Who knows? Maybe we'll break the record!

These are kinda wimpy pictures but they do show the accumulation. We do not get snow in North Texas that often. Not every winter. Not every other winter. Just...sometimes. And this is our third snow this season.

Today wasn't a "snow day" at school. The temperature never dropped below freezing, despite the snow accumulating on unpaved surfaces. The roads were slushy, but not frozen. But that will change tonight. It is suppose to freeze tonight. Slush will become ice and tomorrow, school is on a two-hour start delay. The kids are happy for that though they'd prefer the whole day off!

Those snow days are fun--but you always have to make them up.

Sign me up!

Sign me up for the Jelly Roll Quilt-A-Long!

Moose-On-The-Porch Quilts
is hosting this fun event! I have a jelly roll of Sandy Gervais "Crazy 8" so maybe that will be the new project! Mrs. D has signed up too, so we'll see if we can get together to work on it. That'd be fun!

I tried to find a picture of the "Crazy 8" but it came out last June and I'm not finding the jelly roll online. Perhaps you saw it around Christmas? Or before? It is a Christmas design and very fun!

Wish me luck!
