Meet Frosty

The kids' busdriver is having a snowman building constest. I haven't heard what the prize is, but.....


....the kids spent a good hour and a half creating their snowman at the end of the driveway on Sunday afternoon.

I'm so glad they found a use for Todd's ripped rubber boots and my old broom:)



Too bad they couldn't have built him yesterday - it might have stopped some of the bickering that was present in our house between the two of them!
Although I did manage to get more done in the laundry room:

I got the peg shelf and the bench in my laundry room all finished up - just in time for Todd to come home and say "yes, I like it go ahead and do the new cabinet the same way". What a relief! He likes wood to look like wood, if you know what I mean:) Tonight I will start on the cabinet - at least get the inside done so I can get everything put away.....


See that little quilted mat on the bench? Yes, I made it yesterday in about a half an hour. Nothing fancy but it sure beat paying the $20 they wanted for a little braided rug to fit on there! And it came out of my stash.......
Enjoy your day!

Love the kid's snowman! Great use of your resources for the mat. I can't believe how expensive rugs are in the stores. Even Walmart!

Good use of the stash! I aspire to quilt, but precise measurements are not my forte, and my few attempts at quilting have come out pretty poorly. :(

Love the snowman. Hope your kids win. Had to smile at your son in the cupboard. I remember when mine used to hide out in small places like that.
