Snow Day #2

Weeeee! I love snow days! This is wonderful! The kids and I haven't left the house since Monday night. Well, we played (outside) yesterday for a bit. I have gotten so much done too. The girls had mini pedicures `a la mommy, we baked cookies, baked a homemade loaf of bread and bread bowls, painted suncatchers.....hmmm and many other things which escape my mind right now.

On a personal note, I finally finished a booster seat for my 4 y/o. Our dining room chairs are made for extremely tall persons, which we are not, so I found a cute and easy pattern to make a booster for her. Here it is:

I am happy with it. It serves its purpose. This morning she got pancake syrup on it and since it is made of vinyl, it cleans up quick! I also finished my 7 y/o spring top. (the basis of the Easter dresses I am planning on making should I find the 'right' material) Here it is:
It turned out ok. I don't really like the way the material lays. Thus, the reason I will only make the dresses if I find the right fabric for them. I also cut out the pieces for a smallish 'tote' for my little man to carry his toys around, when he can carry his toys around. It has been so nice to be home. (**edit** I got the bag finished in just an hour or so! Had to share a pic!)

We have been playing the Wii a bit more too. We have Super Mario Bros. and my children believe me to be near goddess status. Ha! It seriously is THE only video game I can play. Plus it has been nearly 20 years since I last played it! Hope the times are happy in your home. Now, I have to go check on that laundry...some things never change!
