It snowed all day today. I was up early to get Susannah to her bus stop as
it had not snowed through the night...but it was snowing as we drove and continued ALL day.
I was feeling so drained and under the weather - really needing a day at home, a quiet day to feel more centred. So we changed our plans and instead of going swimming/ skating with friends, we stayed home in the warm and spent the day doing crafts :)
Abigail continued to make gifts for people - including her dolls - with the beads we had taken to the homeschool group yesterday:
I made a necklace which can be worn as a bracelet too:
I also made some hearts to decorate the house ready for Valentines Day - we are having a party here that day and so I want to decorate the place a bit:
I also made these paper hearts which I plan to hang from the ceiling here and there:
Sam watched Cupquake videos all morning and played minecraft.
He also did some dice math - he decided to change the game a bit and make it a race - giving each number on the dice one of his friends names so see who would win.
I set him up with some yarn and sandpaper to play with too -you can make pictures on the sandpaper with the yarn and it sticks like magic :) He then cut off some of the sand paper and started sanding one of his gemstones for a while. We also filled his tank up with water ready for his Sea Monkeys to go in tomorrow!
Abigail used the computer in the afternoon, and searched for instructional videos on things to make for dolls as well as things to make out of duct tape. She came down and showed me this hair band she had made - it does up with velcro and the bows are detachable so she can swap them around :)
She made matching ones for her and her dolls:
When we picked Susannah up from the bus, we stopped off at Dollarama to stock up with craft supplies we needed. Then we spent a relaxing evening at home - and Sam and I ended the evening by the fire watching 'Planet Earth' :)
