First Snow

Good Morning,

Mo's Digital Pencil is having a challenge on her blog called #287 Something New! (With a Mo's Image).  As soon as I saw the challenge I knew what I would make.  I have seen this digital stamp  in Mo's store many times, it is called Kai in the Snow and it reminds me of my own daughter the first time she saw snow. (Something New!)

My daughter Kelly was about 18 or 19 months old when we woke up to snow!  I put her in her snow suit and took her outside.  She was amazed!  "This is snow, I said" Kelly answered me back "no?" "Snow, I said".  "no?" I tried to teach her how to put the S in front but finally gave up and called it no.  I was so young when I had my children, I was 22 when Kelly was born and so strong.  I put her on one of those old wooden sleds that had belonged to my husband when he was a boy and pulled her all around our neighborhood.  We watched children sledding, I taught her how to make a snowball and throw it, we had fun!  Then we came home and had hot tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches.  Kelly called her daddy on the phone and tried to describe "no" to him,( I think she thought it was only at our house. )  It was a wonderful day.

Here is my card:

    And to answer your question from my blog about a craft room - Well I don't know at this point, the house we're moving into doesn't have the space... but we are trying to figure that all out - I haven't moved yet - we are cleaning/fixing up the other place right now - lots to do before I can actually move into the place... :)
