First snow of the season and no school today.

It was predicted that we’d get 5-8” of snow, then it changed to less, then to more and I think we ended up getting 3-4” of course all the weekend plans had to be cancelled! No church service, no Church Christmas party Sunday night and also town parade in the after- though I wasn’t really planning on going, but maybe….middle school band concert got postponed to Wednesday now at 8pm (late!)

Later, big kids got involved too!

I show this on instagram every day, but just like in years past, I’ve made a lego advent calendar for the kids. I buy a big lego set and split it up so they each get a few pieces each day until Christmas, and of course I follow the manual so they slowly build whatever building it is…

They already know it’s minecraft!

This time I included Anja, she just gets a few big pieces and we help tell her where the pieces go.

I actually like it! It’s not the first time I’ve been a red head, but it’s been YEARS! so the kids were kind of surprised! (yeah it’s just from a box) and I didn’t do my hair fancy, this is shortly after doing it, so it was still damp but you get the idea!

I’ve been sewing on things too, some secret projects, some are just old projects, also the rainbow color of the month blocks!

I wouldn't have thought about red hair for you, but it really looks GREAT on you. Enjoy the snow day/no school day.

The snow is beautiful! Cute idea about the legos.

See we can be sisters now with our red hair, haha. Isn't it fun seeing the kids enjoying the snow!

You wear red well, Bea! Glad the kids enjoyed the snow!

Red really suits you, Bea!
Oooh, that snow looks so chilly. Hope you don’t get more, it’s so disruptive, isn’t it! Nice for the children admittedly, but not, for the animals.

There is a Lego Minecraft quilt along (past) over on Kelly's blog. She designed it for her son. I can't use color out of a box, it turns my hair carrot orange no matter what shade I try to use. My hairdresser has to make a special 'brew' for my hair.
