Let me first start my post with some VERY exciting news!! WE GOT SNOW!! SO excited!! (obviously!)
And now for more exciting news (we’ll get back to the snow soon!). We have a winner for the ADORABLE Molly’s Sweet Peas Giveaway! I LOVED these hats, so cute!! And the winner is……
JUDIE GROSS!! Yay Judy!! Molly posted her info on her Facebook page to so you can email her with your info!
We will have another giveaway coming up on Friday so stay tuned folks!! (We love to do giveaways!)
So did I mention that it FINALLY SNOWED!? We don’t usually get a lot of snow here in Western Washington so it is usually a big deal when we do, you know people can’t drive if it is more than a couple of inches, school is cancelled, sleds and snow shovels that get used once a year are dusted off and used for a day or two all winter!! It is GREAT FUN!
This is what my mantle has looked like since I sadly took down all our Christmas décor. I kept wishing and hoping and waiting for it to work it’s magic and “Let it Snow” as my sign says!!
I had to use pictures of the snow from LAST YEAR since there obviously weren’t any from this year, until NOW!!!
And since today is Monday, our day to share our Pinterest inspirations, I HAD to share SNOW related pins! Luckily, I had a few that I was hoping would come in handy!!
I LOVE this wood sign! I just recently found it so it will have to go into the “to make” board for next year!
Snow Cream! I keep hearing my Facebook friends say how yummy this is but I have yet to try it! But, that has more to do with my OCD germy issues than anything else. Still trying to get past that! They say to get clean snow, but how do I know if it is clean? (See I have issues, working on it!)
If you are looking for some fun things to do in the ‘real’ snow I think your kids would love this from Really Quite Lucky Put food coloring in a spray bottle or some other type of container to draw pictures in the snow!
Or how about a science experiment? Check out how to make these snow bubbles at Science Made Fun.
I also love this idea. Freeze ice cubes that have been colored and then put them around the yard for a fun scavenger hunt. You could even do different colors and have the colors be a certain amount of points! Check out more ideas at Parents.
You all might recognize this one from our blog but I just can’t think about the snow theme without remembering Jenny’s adorable waterless snow globes!
And lastly, here is a fun idea for those of you that don’t have snow, but would like to pretend! Ten Kids And A Dog shows a fun way to make snow playdoh!
Well folks, since it is snowing where we live I’m going to keep this short, so I can actually go enjoy the snow!! And make my kids hot chocolate when they come inside freezing from their snow adventures!!
Check back in this week, we have a couple of really YUMMY recipes and a giveaway on Friday!!!
And while I am really excited about the snow (did you catch that?!), I also want to take a minute to recognize this day in honor of a great man who fought for equality in our country and share two of my favorite quotes from Martin Luther King Jr.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
”I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
