Best Friends, a personal project

After a few days of wet slushy snow, we woke to sunshine and warmer weather! It just so happen we had M down for a play date which sparked the urge to take advantage of this beautiful sunshine. One of the things I love most of my downtime in the winter is I use this time to work on some personal projects that stretch my creativity. I had a vision and 2 beautiful participants and it all came together.

Together they make "art"

First Snow of Winter!

We finally got our first snow.  It may not have been much for those out mid-west but to us "southerners" it was just enough to call school.  The kiddos sat eagerly checking their fb waiting for the post.  I found a lot of humor in how they communicate and how it has changed since we were young.  We always had to sit in front of the TV and wait for our spot in the alphabetic school  order to come back around to see if it was indeed closed.  Now in this tech savvy time just a click of a button and you know.  

The princess could not wait to get out in the snow!  So big brother volunteered to brave the cold but mushy snow and savor the moment before it all melted away.

Princess: Aman thank you for playing with me in the snow.
 Aman: Awh, your welcome. It was fun!
 Princess: Aman, I will never forget this. We were making memories!
