We Got Snow!!!!!


Here in the UK snow has become something very rare since I was a child. I remember walking to school regularly in the winter with it like 12 inches thick. We haven't actually had any snow that you could do anything with where we lived since Erin was 2 (she turned 5 last week) and even then we were pushing our luck a bit lol.
So when DH got up this morning and said we needed to get the shovel out I thought he was just joking. He was actually but we had about 3 inches which Erin and I immediately went crazy over lol. As soon as we'd had breakfast we got wrapped up and went out in the garden to make her first ever snowman before it all disappeared. After all, the way things are going she might never get to do it again....
On a stitching front, I'm down to 991 stitches to go on Tomboy and just about to sit for a bit and try to put in a few more!

Lovely for Erin. Much to Oscars disgust despite two snow storms it just never settled here. He was so looking forward to building a snowman and throwing snowballs at Grandpa.

Oh, I am so envious of your snow, but here in Texas we never get any. It looks like fun! And you are so close to finishing on Tomboy. Keep on keeping on!
