Now I ask you, how do you resist this face? How do you deny that request? I couldn't, so we made recipe. We actually made cookies just like she wanted but with a twist. I had mini m&ms hidden just for such an occasion. She's never seen m&m cookies before. I had no idea what a difference those candies could make to a cookie princess. She was in a candy coated heaven!

I hope all of you that celebrate Valentine's are having a wonderful day leading to an even more amazing night! I woke up this morning to find my fireplace covered in my favorite chocolates and a beautiful card with of course cash inside lol! Now this may not seem like a romantic gift but to me it's perfect. Dh knows what I'm saving for and it may take me all year to get there so every new addition to my savings is awesome and makes me jump for joy! That's romance, when your husband knows you well enough to know when cash is preferred or when a gift is required. Anyway, that was my day. We also celebrate with our little Valentines and every year get them heart shaped boxes of chocolates, placed by their pillows for when they awake. Needless to say it's been a very sweet day.
Oh, and the kids finally made their first snowman of the year today! Followed by, yeah, hot chocolate...

It was the week of gray skies and snow. Lots of indoor fun until the big snow day off school. Then yesterday, finally, a glimpse of blue sky breaking through the clouds. Should I mention that here, at the start of week 7, it's snowing again and that pretty sky is gone?

Hush. It has snowed. A bit of white has drifted to the ground. It makes me breathe deeply and feel at once peaceful. It doesn't matter what noisy environment I've just closed the door on, when I step outside into the freshly snow covered earth I become silent and appreciative. Perhaps, it is all the white. I often think of heaven as white, peaceful and silent, maybe that is the reason for the effect. Or maybe because, though the same amount of animals are in the woods, people are in the town, and cars are on the road when the snow covers the tracks I feel alone. Not alone in a bad way, more like in-tune with myself and less distracted. In this busy world I treasure things that bring peace, like snow. I treasure being hushed.

Know you what it is to be a child?…
It is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief;
it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear,
it is to turn pumpkins into coaches,
and mice into horses,
lowness into loftiness,
and nothing into everything,
for each child has its fairy godmother in its soul.

This is my take on the whimsical Land Of Nod where dreams take flight. As you drift off to sleep, you'll see the floating islands of Nod, some joined by wooden bridges. You can fly there by a para~sailing type of basket, magic carpet, or sail along the clouds on your own Nodling boat. Hang out with the residents, sample the berries, or slide down a rainbow. This kit has 10 papers and 80 elements to help you on your journey through dream land. Maybe, just maybe, you'll remember the curious music that you hear there.

Well, I made it through another week. January was a tough month to find things to take pics of, besides my kids. I'm really hoping February is a bit easier and a bunch more interesting! I did notice buds already on the trees and bushes, and irises peaking up from the ground. Could spring really be coming early?
