Couldn’t you just make paper snowflakes all day? If so here are some patterns you might like. I know I did.

January is half way over now. I like using this month to squeeze out the last bit of Wintery/Christmasy crafts and fun that I can. It eases me into the coming season of Spring. It’s a calmer month with more opportunities to focus on the cozy indoors and the beauties of what lays outdoors. I’m always reminded of that sweet little book I read to Lily and Clara when they were wee, Warm in Winter:

“And what could be warmer than a sunny summer’s day?”
“Winter,” said Rabbit. “I like it better when it’s warm in winter.”
“Ha!” Badger laughed. “How can it ever be warm in winter?”
“Wait and see.” said Rabbit.
Badger watched Rabbit set up the checkerboard. She took a sip of the soup Rabbit had made for her. She snuggled deep in the nightie Rabbit had given her. Then she looked out the window at the falling snow.
“You know Rabbit,” said Badger, “being here with you makes me feel…” Badger stopped.
“Feel what?” said Rabbit.
Badger smiled. “Warm,” she said. “Warm in winter.”

That Rabbit. He had hygge pegged before it became a Pinterest sensation. The only thing we’re missing from our personal Warm in Winter is a fireplace. If anyone has one they’d like to give us I’ll gleefully accept it.

Last Wednesday Esther’s Kindergarten class held the “Wedding of Q and U.” The girls were to dress as QUeens for the day.

Her big sisters made sure she was well prepared to be a Queen. Here’s the Courtsey Lessons.

Jigi continues to be on the rampage…I mean a Lil’ Helper spree.

There’s been a lot of crying at our house lately. Well, there’s always a lot of crying at our house. But there’s also been a LOT of dancing. Other than eating popcorn, Martha’s favorite pass time is dancing.

    How Martha doesn’t fall over after all that turning is beyond me.

    You must frame the picture of Martha in the chair with her book. It is adorbs!

    There’s just something about little Miss Martha that makes me want to cuddle her all day long.
