105 days!?

Okay,the stomache flu made us miss 100 days of school. Nasty. So I sent these to school for the teacher to use next year. I punched out snowflakes, printed up the 'our class is 100 days smarter', used a circle to punch these out and attached the snowflake to the back to look like the sun. I was going to make them into lightbulbs, but ran out of steam. I put adhesive squares on the back to make them into stickers.
Next up is celebrating Dr. Suess! What do you have planned?

Little Squidge is 7!

Just a quick post-the stomache flu hit us the day after DS7's birthday party and we're still recovering! This is the doodle I used for the front of his invitations. We were hoping to have a skating party on our outdoor rink but Mother Nature put the kibosh(sp?)to that one! (see rink puddles below):(

We were going to do a hockey rink cake but decided last minute on 'Club Penguin'.-It mast've tatsed just as good as that was the only quiet time all afternoon!LOL!

Happy Late Valentines Day!

Every Day should be like Valentines Day! Love in the air everywhere! I love just about every holiday throughout the year. It's like little bits of Christmas that have broken off and are floating around the calendar!
Unfortunatly DS10's teacher doesn't share my view. They didn't even do Valentine cards this year and being in grade 5 it was his last year to exchange them with his classmates. Well, we did them anyway! He got 5 or 6 from other members of his class and received some 'mystery' hersey's kisses from 'm' (aka, mom) that they were selling for a fundraiser. These are the Valentines we gave(please forgive me-I don't remember where the idea came from but it isn't mine) The boys decided on a fu man chu mustache-very cute!

These are the goodies I picked up at Winners for 1/2 price-shouldn't have-but I did and I'm using the bowl to make cakes this morning. One birthday and one teacher appreciation cake. I'll let you know how that goes!

The Need for Speed

DS10 had a bad day yesterday. I forgot to check his backpack to make sure he had his snowpants with him. (He doesn't wear them until recess) They had 'spur of the moment' idea to do a mass snowangel making at their school. Guess who couldn't participate? That's right. Massive mom guilt. They were already missing their Dad who had been away on business, so I figured some sledding time was needed. And not just backyard 'make-do' sledding. We went to the local snow hill and they had a ball! There were even some snowboarders there-which they got a huge kick out of! Then we went to WalMart so they could spend their allowance. When we got back(finally) Daddy was home! (finally!) Happiness and exhaustion all 'round!

Running out of Room!

The rink needs shovelling-again.

The snow is STILL falling!
There is plenty to make a sledding hill against the deck for the boys to play on.

We lost so many trees in a fall storm. I'm thankful the snow is covering the damage; letting us forget about it until spring.
For now, I'll just enjoy the beauty of it all-from inside!
