Change of Plans

Due to the bitter cold weather we have been having in North Central WI,
some plans had to be changed.
One of my dear grandsons wanted to build a snowfort, but we settled for
tunneling inside the house instead. This red collapsable tunnel is going on
its 5th year of fun.
When Aunt Mel came for a visit, we were working on PaperPlate Art, and of course, Aunt Mel pitched right in with this three minute landscape of the snowman that Syrus also wanted to build.
Instead of a snowman, he made a fish....to warm our day. Isn't it the cutest little fish you ever saw? He is so proud of his work.
Nothing beats a tub of markers and paperplates, good company and a cup of soup to while away an afternoon on a blustery day. Thanks for the fun Syrus and Mel.

The warmth in you home has nothing to do with temperature... It looks like you know how to have a FUN day!
Have a Happy New Year!

Loveing every minute of this. I bet you all had a blast. That fish is the finest looking fish I've ever seen. Your grandson is really clever and talented. I mean that sincerely. And Mel's landscape looks like a Hallmark card, It's obvious talent runs in your family. Sweet!

Here's wishing you and your family all the best, all the year through!
