Happy snowy weekend!

I love snow!!!!!!!!!!! LOL! And it is snowing right now. Much better than the ice storm of last weekend. We are due to get 6 to 8 inches. I asked Jack if he wanted to make snow angels. Only trouble is I doubt either of us could get back up! I did go out with Katie a bit ago for her evening potty break. Lovely to watch the snow falling in the light of the street light and hear it hitting the leaves on the trees. That is the only sound that was out there. I caught snowflakes in my hand and on my tongue! I am just a big kid I guess! Here is a laugh for you! Katie doing what she does best! Makes me want to slap that fat tummy! And I do every chance I get!
I have been crocheting away on my purple, pink and white afghan. i am so close to being done with it. Well, except for the border of course. Sorry, forgot to take a picture! LOL! But here is a picture of something else I want to crochet on. My care bears. I have the yarn for the purple colored one. That one is called Share Bear and has little lollipops on her tummy. I will need to buy some felt but I believe I have everything else.
Jack is coming along on his snow folks quilt. I promise a picture of it in a couple days. Here is a little something my very dear sister/friend Bec sent to us. A little metal sack that holds tea candles full of Christmas towels, a pot holder, cookie mix and a snowflake cookie cutter. She also sent a beautiful plaque that says "Faith is to believe what we can not see; and the reward of faith is to see what we believe" I love it! She also sent a snowman ornie for the tree and a bag of goodies for Katie. I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends.
So that is the news for this week with us old sew n sews! if you are getting snow, make a snowman, have a snowball fight or just enjoy a snowflake on your hand or tongue! Celebrate living, enjoy the simple pleasures for we never know how long we will be here to enjoy them!

Such a wonderful assortment of goodies you received from your the snowman bag!! Speaking of which, thank you SO much for the beautiful Christmas card and doilie you sent me, I will treasure it always!! Just knowing it was made by your own hands means everything to me, thank you again!!! May I show it on my blog? Enjoy this wonderful time of the year my friend. Love ya! xoxo

Hi Michelle,
Loved the picture of Katie :) I posted one of silly Vincent today..
I love the thought of snow at Christmas, but this CA girl would hardly know what to do if it started really snowing. lol
Stay warm and cozy..

Not snowing yet,but the weather guru says it will.It's nasty cold and very wet here.If it gets cold enough we will have a sheet of ice. I hope not.
Stay safe and warm.God bless you both. Donna

Wow, ice and snow, and little christmas snowmen!!! It's very wintery at your place...enjoy the snow and be careful, winter weather can be a bear! Pat Katie for me! I love your little snowman collection. I have decided this year that I want to start collecting snowmen, there are some really cute ones out there! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving such encouraging notes, and for all your prayers during my time of distraughtness, I am done with school for the winter so I have a little more free time...hip hip horay! lol!

Hi Michelle,

I know that you enjoyed the beauty of the snowfall. I pray that we will get at least one snow this year. We were blessed with an inch of rain here. I am so proud of every little bit that we get.

Katie is so cute with that fat little tummy.

I love your gifts from your friends. The metal snowman tea light holder is beautiful. Thanks for sharing it with us.

It is a pleasure to celebrate living and the simple things in life as you said, Michelle.

Have a wonderful week....try and stay warm!

We don't get much snow in the south, but normal is once or maybe twice. "They" are saying we will have a warmer than average winter. After a 25 degree morning today, "they" may be wrong!

Katie is too funny covered up like that. The purple care bear will be cute-I will look forward to that. I can crochet-but I have never attempted anything like that.
