ice, ice & finally some SNOW!!! only for about 30 minutes did it SNOW. HUGE snowflakes came down from the gray sky - it was beautiful. and i wish of k's came true. he has been wanting it to SNOW since before christmas. not enough to build a snowman but still fun to run around in.

since all this ice we have been stuck in our house since monday (yuck!) & i'm going CRAZY!!! i'm a go kinda girl so not being able to leave (daddy chad says i can't drive in this kind of weather... because my car... not my driving!!! ha)

since being stuck indoors for over 48 hours i have watched A LOT of tv, ate every meal at home (yuck again!), played wii, board games, finished the spare bathroom (putting shower curtain / picture frame / vase in their right places)
i have also touched up all the door frames, around our bathtub, & vanity. the boys helped me paint this: (i love things with our initials & i loved that it was only $1 at hobby lobby!!!)
and my last project - picture canvas. i got the idea from pottery barn kids but they were WAY expensive. i am doing one of each of the boys & then pic of them together. i have 2 more to go & then its ready to hang on the wall! i almost forgot about this... i have had this "BELIEVE" uppercase living sticker since before thanksgiving. chad found me a scrap piece of wood for me & tada i turned it into this! ha

i guess its a GOOD thing that i have been ICED in for days. other wise, none of these projects would have gotten down! :)

Wow! You've gotten a lot done! I'm not even going to tell you what I did, it involved laying on the couch watching TV!
Love all your decorations they look great!
And I don't drive in this weather either, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to tomorrow - I'm pretty sure we will have work!

Melinda said...

Wow! You are a task master! I have not done anything but be lazy. Go you!

BTW - your bathroom is lovely!

Amber said...

Awesome! Love all of your projects. I'm the same way about getting out of the house, even if it's to run errands. I love being home, but not for days on end! But look at all you got done! Love the canvas.
