Snow Day

So yesterday the kids (and Brian) had a snow day. I have to say that it wasn't the best day . . . for me, not the kids. I was a total cranky pants all day. Not exactly sure why, but I'd like a do-over. I think a small part of my crankiness is that as a stay at home mom, a snow day really isn't any different. There are still 3 meals to be fixed, house to be cleaned, clothes to be washed, etc. But it feels like it should be a break and when it's not, I don't react well. Anyway, maybe the crankiness is out of my system for a while.

I did finish up a little DIY project, and I'm very proud of myself for doing it. Trying something new not to mention tackling a craft project on my own is not really my style. I'm a big wuss, but I kinda like how it turned out. Here's a little peek.

And this girl is getting sassier by the day. She asked if she could pose for me. ;)
This was Sunday afternoon, and she spent the afternoon changing clothes, adding layers, switching shoes, fixing her hair, asking for make-up, etc. Cracked me up.

That craft project looks so cute! I can't wait to see the whole thing.

A snow day isn't any different? Around here it means snow tracked into the house, incessant requests for hot cocoa, carrots for the snowman, dry mittens, etc. Then there are all the wet boots and snow pants and coats by the door... it's double, maybe triple the work for Mommy!

Girl, I am impressed! I would love to do a project like that but know it would probably be a disaster. Can't wait to see the whole thing. Don't beat yourself up about being cranky. We all have days just like that. Today is a new day!

Where are your darling birds hanging? I do believe that is about the best possible shade of grey I've ever seen!
