snow stops crafting!

snow stops crafting!

daughter

son
{yes he is wearing a monkey scarf!}


cold enough for even me to wear a hat
{stolen from daughter!
}


being attacked by the super mean close range snowball fiend

yeah yeah very funny son!!!

the last two pictures were taken today after it had snowed for about 4 hours - we were very disappointed with the lack of snow we've had and getting very bored with the scary ice.
My son's school hasn't shut for one single day and apparently never does {i did keep him home to play in the snow on wednesday though because it's so very rare for us to get proper snow here}
on the other hand my daughter got sent home on Tuesday and it's still closed tomorrow!{she is very happy as are her friends, they've all been having great fun playing and sledging in the snow}

I hope i don't seem boasty here but i'm really proud
and a bit shocked at how well received it has been.

Deserves every boasting right; that wreath is really original. At least, one of the most original craft items I've seen! Now, I wouldn't have thought, "I could have done that" when I saw it :)

And that monkey scarf is very cute!!
