No Snow for Us

While the rest of the country seemed to be getting snow, we did not. It was quite chilly topping out in the 40s today, but no snow-as usual. I would have driven north an hour or two if I had heard of snow there. Oh, well. Since we couldn't make a real snowman, we made our own kind-using cotton balls!

I thought he turned out pretty cute. Plus, Madison really enjoyed making him, and that, folks, is all that matters. After we finished him, Madison wanted to do something else. So, I handed her a scrap piece of paper and told her she could draw a picture. I only expected to see the typical squiggly lines and circles that she has been drawing lately. BOY WAS I WRONG!!! She started drawing us-her family. I was in complete shock that she could draw that well-with so many details! Eyes, eyebrows, teeth, arms, legs, high heels. The person in the center is me with high heels. I guess that is because I always wear them-NOT!!! I am still in shock hours later. This was a hidden talent. my baby girl is growing up too quickly.

Now, I really wish that I had given her a fresh piece of paper. You better believe I will cherish this forever!
