Snow day - day two!

I put up our 'winter' wreath, which always means Christmas is just around the corner!!
It was a weekend of snow, and Tyler and I were both lucky enough to have Monday off, so it was a great long week-end for staying in. We woke up Sunday (Remembrance Day), to realize that quite a few more inches of snow had fallen throughout the night. We decided not to brave the roads to go to a Remembrance Day service, so instead we bundled up and walked the dogs to the park. 

The Littlest was not too sure about all the snow. He couldn't walk well in his massive snowsuit, and we don't have proper winter boots for him yet. Partway along the walk I realized his face was getting cold, so I wrapped my extra scarf around him. It was the type of scarf that is not meant for cold (definitely a fashion scarf) and Tyler commented that he looked like a little hobo. 
On Monday we decided to get out of the house and pick up a few craft supplies. I've been wanting to pick up a few things for Soren for awhile now. I got something for myself that I've been wanting for ages... a glue gun!! Not sure how I've lived without one for so many years... all day my minds been thinking up ideas that involve gluing. I got a little overexcited and burned my thumb making this little holiday decor item below.

We came home with more than just a glue gun, one extra was this cute stacking toy from Melissa and Doug. We had it waiting on the coffee table after the Littlest awoke from his nap, and his eyes lit up when he saw it. (Unknown to me, the camera was on a weird setting and I couldn't get a great shot.)

I am so incredibly jealous! It's still a sunny 85 here in South Texas:( I miss the cold, snowy winters from North Texas.
