My children were very excited to wake up and find the ground covered. My daugther who is four asked if we could go out and build a snowman when it was still dark out and I could see some grass. My son was up before me and told me to look out the front window that he had spotted a huge snow drift in the front yard! Huge well I have seen alot bigger but now we have some pretty big snow drifts to play in.
Ok so I started this post on Friday night expecting to take some pictures of the beautiful snow fall we had but time got the best of me and I didn't get outside, now it's Tuesday and pouring rain and 90% of our snow is gone and it's 7 degree's outside so no more snow for us. I really do wish Old Man Winter would decide to stay until at least the middle of February because I am tired of this crappy weather.
On a brighter note I got a new drop leaf table on the weekend and I love it, I put it between my front door and front window so I can set up some vignettes for all the season's. I really like it and how I have it decorated. I was also inspired from Janice over at Stairway to Home to create some silhouettes of my children. I have always liked the silhouettes and wanted to create some but never thought to do my kids. Now that was a fun experience because my daughter is such a ham and wouldn't sit properly for me. It was a challenge but finally she sat long enough for me to snap a profile pic of her.
I also created some colonial style portraits. Being from Canada I found a picture of Sir John A MacDonald an old primeminister. And some other photo's. I can't find portraits over here of colonial style so I decided to create my own. They aren't hung yet as I have to re-arrange some things but hopefully this week I will get them up.
Some day I hope to have the real deal but my husband and I decided to put ourselves on a budget for a while so that doesn't allow me much spending money!
Well hopefully you are all enjoying this lovely raining weather! I prefer snow over rain that I guess is coming tonight along with the cold weather again. I sure hope so.
Have a good one!
