8 Winter Craft Ideas and Monday Funday {56}

Happy Sunday from the snowy south! We have had quite a snow event here, which is definitely not the norm around these parts. My kids, husband, and I had a great time watching the snow fall, sledding, and hanging out in jammies! Lots of hot cocoa was served up along with dinners of spaghetti and pizza! Good times!

As a matter of fact, here is what we did for a few days…

My son had a blast! It amazes me what they will come up with…he decided the bunkers and sand traps on the golf course were a great launching pad to “get some air”! I blame it on hours of Olympic viewing!

Umm…but mom was not to be out done…

Secretly…it was a blast! Three days worth of family sledding and I am tired! Walking in snow is a workout!


So now that you have had a giggle, let’s get this party going!!
