fresh snow

We haven't gotten any snow yet this year- we might get some today and I find that I keep looking out the window to see if it's here yet.

Last year we got a fun Christmas Day surprise- lots and lots and lots of snow. That was the best Christmas present ever for me. I miss being in Boise and having snow during the wintertime.

Do you remember this, west Texas people?

Now we don't get a whole lot of snow here so this was a lot to us. 

Sarah was sick at Christmas so we kept her inside (much to her dismay) but Hailey sure had a lot of fun playing in all of that snow. She and Matt even made a snowman!

Since it will probably be 50-60 degrees for Christmas this year at least we have last year's pictures to help us remember what it's like to have snow at Christmas. Who knows? Maybe we'll wake up to a nice surprise. 

Here is Hailey in another Jillibean Soup layout:

And some detail shots:

gloves cut from some Christmas Chestnut Soup paper. I still love those corrugated alphas!

A little bit of misting (Studio Calico red and Maya Road brown), canvas star and cute twine.

Had to sneak in one of those cute kraft shipping tags, too, and some Cool Beans- about to be extinct. Jill isn't selling those anymore so if you find some anywhere be sure to snatch them up (the buttons). Canvas star, too. 

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

p.s. it's snowing!!!

I am glad that you got some snow! Some is better than none at all if it is going to be this cold. (I love the page too! I need to break out some scrapping things too. It has been a while again.)

I'm keeping my fingers crossed fof snow this year, although it is looking doubtful! If we don't get any this will be my first ever non-white Christmas....I'm not sure how I feel about that!

Great layout of Hailey...I need to get me some of that twine, it's so cute!
