Along with the endless snow, we have been getting endless birds! Snow has overwhelmed our area and we have had lots of school closings, event cancellations, etc. We have been hybernating this winter for sure! Tonight they are calling for below freezing weather with horrible windchills - joy. I keep telling myself that spring is just around the corner and we have so many wonderful things to look forward to. I read a quote yesterday, forgot the detailed words, but it was basically saying be IN the season that you are in and make the best of it. So with that, we are defintely trying!
So this morning, Noah gave Isabelle a hug and she ran to me and screamed daddy smells like the stinky fish we had for dinner! (grilled trout last night). - haha.
Valetine's Day is approaching and Isabelle wanted Barbie Valetines for some reason....so that is of course what I found! She will be filling them out herself this year so that is so exciting, seriously. They are not supposed to address the cards to specific friends so it's eaiser at distribution time, so they are supposed to address the cards to: Friend. So , I have been teaching her to write that. So now she knows to write her first, last and sort of middle name. ben's name and a few other words. She is right handed (Noah and I are both left, I think Ben will be left as well because he tends to color and such with his left).
On this winter day I have much household chores to tackle, I need to work on some custom orders for my shop and I think I will make bake some banana bread with Isabelle.
Oh I have some fun news! A publishing company is making a book about handmade greeting cards and they had a call out, so I submitted a few of my cards for consideration back in nov/dec. Well, I just got notification that they selected one of my cards to be included in this book! So, I think that is very cool.
Ben has been an extremily mischieveous little boy lately. I swear this kid's middle name should have been TROUBLE. But, he's so darn sweet. :)
That is all for now. Demands are calling (and whining and screaming). :)
