Snow Day Crafts

It is still snowy, cold and icy here in Skippyland. We don't have it as bad as anyone else, I realize, but I do enjoy how pretty it is. This is a picture of the elementary school directly behind our home with the walking path.

After playing all day in the snow they came in for Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup.
They decided to goof it up - I think they are a bit tired of me taking pictures of their dinner for my blog before they are allowed to eat.

After dinner we moved onto serious crafting.
These are the youngest's creations - they are glass pendants, a glass magnet, glass thumbtack and a neat-o bookmark!
[I am stealing the middle pendant. Shhhhhhh!]
Seriously. I am.
The eldest's have an Asian flair - and of course she had to make two bookmarks.
I was teasing her about the arrow on the thumbtack [she took the pic']
Um...honey...a bit to the right?
I am waiting for a surprise Mom's Day Pendant - I can't wait :D

I bought all the supplies and instructions for these projects from Etsy.com - the lady I bought them from is wonderful.
If anyone is interested her site is Kristenskrafts.etsy.com.
We really had a wonderful day. I can't wait for tomorrow :D!

I can't wait to do things like that with my daughter, but then I can because that will mean that she will be all grown up.

That soup looks so good! I love the rabbit ears, my kind of humor!

Enjoy your second snow day.
