Snowball Fight!!!!

20180117_113654[1]

We finally got some real snow and what better to do, than have a snowball fight! Winters, in North Carolina, can be interesting. We are known for our bipolar weather. We can get all four seasons in one day and it’s not many winters that we actually get enough snow to have a snowball fight. Usually, when the weatherman calls for snow, we may see a dusting or an inch. Nothing to really get excited about, but yet, the state still comes to a stand still.

Last week, it snowed a whole six inches, in one day. Other towns, around us, got up to a foot of snow. So, with some actual measurable snow, we had to have a snowball fight. Della loves the outdoors, and even when it’s freezing outside, we have to play.  It was so beautiful and COLD, but we still went exploring.  We picked up her cousin and started on a winter adventure.

The walk, through the woods, was liking walking through a winter wonderland. The kids thought they were in the movie Frozen. Yes, I will be so glad when they let it go. We made our way to the pond and kids was so excited to see it was frozen over. Nope, no ice skating for us; we just admired the beauty of the snow.

Did you guys get any snow? How do you enjoy the winter? Any travel or winter ideas you would like to share?

 

Kid’s Vision Board

Let’s Make a Vision Board

Happy 2018! The new year brings new visions and boy does Della have a lot of things she wants to do.  We decided to sit down and make a vision board to see what she wants to accomplish this year.

 

Della already has a list of things she wants to do and places she wants to go, and in true kid form, she makes sure to tell me, EVERY DAY…lol.  Below are the top things on her list.

  1. Disney
  2. See Frozen live
  3. Beach (Dance like a ballerina on the beach)
  4. Mountain trip
  5. Museums
  6. Waterfalls (Every since Niagara Falls, she’s been hooked)
  7. Cross a big bridge (She really has a thing for bridges)
  8. DONUTS
  9. Playground with friends
  10. Explore

We sat down and searched the net for some cool pics and taped them to a piece of poster board.  We hug it next to her dream catcher, above her bed, so she could have good dreams about all the stuff she wants to do. I hope all her dreams come true.

 

This is a quick and easy project that’s so much fun. Adults spend so much time envisioning the future and things we want to accomplish, it’s good to find out what our kids want to do and accomplish for the new year.

Printerpix

I realized I have no pictures of Della except those on my phone and the one the photographer took in NICU.  We really need some cute pics for the house, so I took to Groupon to find a deal (Yea, I know I am cheap)..lol

I came across a $5 Printerpix deal for one 8″X10″ Photo Canvas.  I figured why not. For $5 I will try it. I actually bought two.  I figured if I didn’t like it, I was only out 10 bucks.

Saturday I received my pic and I am very happy with the quality. It came out way better than expected.  I will definitely  use the other groupon soon.

Sorry for the glare. My house has a lot of natural light and even though it’s cloudy and raining today there is still a lot of light coming in.
