A few things...

Happy Wednesday! Did you know that November is nablopomo?


Well, it is, and I'm going to do my best to post every.single.day. We'll see how that goes!

Today is a snow day. So far we've worked on letters, built a fort in the family room, played with the neighborhood kids in the snow, made chalk-art...and all before nap-time. I love cozy days at home with my kids!

This little man loves the bouncy seat. We pulled it out of the basement last week, much to his delight!

Why must children's toys be so cumbersome and crazy-looking? Seriously...it looks like Truett could orbit the moon in this contraption, doesn't it?

Yes, Maren is wearing shorts and a t-shirt today. She dressed herself this morning and I guess she's not going to let go of summer without a fight!
And yes, the pictures of Maren are blurry...she was a swiftly moving target this morning. I probably just need to learn how to use my camera a little better.

I made these for Life Group tonight...

They have chocolate chips and pretzels in them, and they are just as delicious as they look. Thank goodness, because the last time I tried a recipe from Pinterest, I was grossly disappointed!

A set of my notecards was featured in a fun hedgehog treasury. If you want to see some sweet little items, go check it out!

So, how about a little snow-day giveaway? Leave a comment with your favorite snow-day activity...and you might just win your choice of a set of notecards from my shop!*

*I'll announce the winner on Saturday morning!*


  1. My favorite is to go on a snowman hunt.
    Not when the roads are bad but a couple days after a big storm. I like to spot them and then take pictures. The little ones I watch love it.
    I am headed to Colorado this week-end. Please save some snow for me.
    Truett does look like he could lift off.

  2. I love taking the boys out to play in the snow. I hate being out in the cold, but watching how much fun they have kinda makes it worth it.

  3. I'm going to be totally sappy... But my favorite snow-day activity is definitely snuggling in front of the fireplace with my man!

  4. I love the blurry pic - totally shows off all that crazy energy!

    My favorite snow day activity is letting our dog out first thing in the morning after a big snow and watching him run around like a kid in a candy store :D It's the funniest thing to watch!

  5. We have a really similar play gym-- they ARE huge!

    My favorite snow activity is the hot chocolate that follows the sledding! My mom used to make homemade hot chocolate-- the kind where it would form a "skin" on top. It was soooo good!
