Happy Snow!

Our kids are away at my parents for the long weekend so Carl & I have really enjoyed our quiet Valentine's weekend ;) We have had so much fun sledding and playing in the snow this year. We are getting up to 9 more inches today!
Brrrrr!

Abby helped shovel the driveway :)

This boy is the snowball machine!

The kids had a couple snow days last week so the girls and I made stained-glass valentine hearts.

They sharpened crayons in a pencil sharpener till we had a pile of crayon shavings.
Then we put the crayon shavings between 2 sheets of wax paper.

And ironed the wax paper just till the crayon shavings melt.
Cut out the hearts and hang in the window. So pretty!

Abby's valentine box she decorated for school.

Ella all ready for her Valentine's party with her heart tights.

I'm enjoying my snow day, hope you do too!
