Hello everyone. Hope you are all well and staying warm. What a huge amount of snow. I couldn't quite believe my eyes when I saw it all yesterday and then even more of it this morning and now...well, it's like a blizzard out there just now. If there had been any chance of getting my car out of the driveway today...It's gone, lol!

The one good thing about it though, is that we had a lovely time playing in it today. We made some snowmen and snow angels, had a snowball fight and the older two got a couple of snow baths, lol. Great fun!

No card today just a wee gift box I made to hold a few chocs. This was to give to my cousins partner last night at the baby shower. Since it would all be baby gifts, I thought it would be nice for the mum to get a wee thing too. I got the template and the inspiration for this wee gift bag from HERE. Please do go over and see the gorgeous cards this lady creates. Beautiful... and thank you so much for the idea for the gift bag, Lena Katrine.

Well, that's it on the gift box side of things... did you all see the X Factor. I was really disappointed the last few weeks because people were going home who shouldn't have been. However, it seems that we may be getting somewhere at long last. I really do think that Matt is going to win it this time. The four left are all good singers but he is amazing!

Ok, I am going to bed now because I think tomorrow may be another long day...think the schools may be closed due to the weather and all 3 kids at home together never makes a good recipe, lol. Stay warm everyone and if you have to go out, be safe. I will leave you with pics of the snowman family...

Mum and Dad

Have no idea what Steven and Mikayla were doing with the carrots, lol.

If you look real close, you can see snowbaby here, lol

Thanks for stopping by
