Where Oh Where Is Spring?

Being cooped up in the house...
because of the SNOW...
and the dreaded wind...my nemesis...
has led to some organizing and "spring dreaming."

Here is some of the happenings over in these parts.

I went through my old Barbies from when I was a young gal...
they are quite a hit with Miss Thing!
I love how all the Ken dolls have cut off shirts...
I told my hubby that is why I fell in love with him...
it stems from my childhood toys...who knew? hehe

My grandma made clothes for my dolls...
and my mom's dolls...
so these clothes are v.i.n.t.a.g.e!
I am so impressed with my grandma's skillz!
We also cleaned out and rearranged Allikaye's
under-the-stairs playroom.
We moved her kitchen in...
and created a "cozy spot" - as she calls it -
way in the back.
When we were finished she said,
"Awesome, mom!"

And here is mama's craft...
A new chalkboard!!!
Woohoo!
After I cleaned up Allikaye's kitchen and toys -
and moved them to her playroom,
I had this extra space...
which was perfect for this board I have wanted to make for awhile now!
Here is the finished product!!!

I think I will put each of my memory verses on it!
It is in a place where we will see it all day...
we could use the reminders!

But for now...
here is a little SPRING HOPE...
with snow on the ground outside...



Oh...one more thing...
this is the new coolest way to eat a donut...
at least according to the Hip Miss Thang!
Come on Spring...You can do it!

Allikaye! That girl is such an independent little miss! I love hearing about how verbal she is! Happy B Track Time Off - love the chalkboard!

I am wondering the same thing about spring.

beautiful verse. Great reminder. Lovely chalk board.

seems we are all going into organizational mode with this weather. What a LONG winter it has been.

Gurl. I can't believe you made that chalk board! Where do you get your ideas? I love the play room too. How cute is that.

I am irritated by the whole weather thing as well. I guess that's what we get for living in Colorado and Utah.

I am ready for spring too. I know we needed the snow, but I am ready for GREEN!!!

I found someone else who does not like the wind.

We're kindred spirits!
