Weekend adventures...

It's been quite the winter. Another 12 inches arrived Friday night into Saturday. 
 The snow is so deep that it's past Josie's waist in most areas of the yard.
Chris even took the snow blower to our ice rink.
What a crazy wild winter.
 A few things from the weekend that made me smile...

Sugar cookies with Josie.  We used our horse cookie cutter for a few "Year of the Horse" cookies.
Marathon games of  Pay Day.
Celebrating my dad's birthday watching the Harlem Globetrotters.
Not rushing off to work and enjoying a large cup of coffee with extra whipped cream.

Puttering around in my craft room.
A very busy work week awaits and I understand more arctic temps are on their way.  Be safe.  Be well.

Wow, that is a lot of snow. We have had maybe 10 inches since Friday. 2-4 more tomorrow or tonight. I love winter but this is a lot to love. The cold temps are the hardest. Love your cookies. Stay safe and warm and COZY of course.

Hubby and I looked at your photos together. It just looks unreal! But I'm glad you got to spend time with the girls and do some fun things! Hope your hubby got some special coffee, too! Stay warm my friend!

Margaret said...

Now that's a great weekend! I'm surprised you are able to travel to see the Harlem Globetrotters in such bad weather. Aren't they amazing? I just love seeing all the Chinese New Year crafts. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday my friend! :) be safe Hugs, Maggie

YOU'VE GOT SNOW!

I doubt others in the warmer, no snow states, know what we are talking about. Seems like we are having the snow of the late seventies!

Poor Chris . . . what a daunting task! Jack said today for the first time, I am getting tired of this . . . my body and hands hurt!

Love the girls play side booth for games! Great purchase.

Josie looks like she is growing up since the summer. They change so fast.

What a treat for "grandpa" to watch the Globetrotters in person!

Craft away my dear, these are perfect days for it!

Donna said...

Pam Kessler said...

What an awesome winter weekend! You need to put Josie in a neon snowsuit so you can find her if she gets stuck in a snowdrift :)

Courtney said...

Yay, I am able to leave a comment. Thanks for the tip, it worked. I am sure Logan would love to see the Harlem Globetrotters! Stay warm!

It has been a wild winter! Really cold here too - but no snow and we think if it's going to be cold, we might as well have some snow! :)

WOW! Y'all really are getting the snow. It looks beautiful in your yard. It is suppose to get cold here too, but nothing like that only in the 30's I think?

We are trying to stay out of the snow as much as we can.
What fun with your family!
I grew up loving the Harlem globetrotters! Back in the day of Curley!
