Winter Wonderland

Last Sunday was our first 'real' snow of the season. It snowed from Saturday afternoon until Sunday morning.

Big J tried out the sled for the first time. It did not go well. We'll try again when he's had a nap & a full tummy.
We had some friends over on Friday for a Crafting Day. Here's Big Sis and Natalie helping out by decorating the cupcakes. Good job girls!

I made tutus. It was really easy, but I'm not sure why they won't lay a little straighter. Too much tulle? Strips too small? Strips too wide? Too long??
Regardless, I think they're cute, and I'm going to use the leftover tulle to make little hair bows to match. Or maybe magic wands. I don't know yet. Only 2 more Christmas gifts to go!

Crafting Day was fun. We don't have people over very often, as our apartment is the size of a postage stamp. But I love having company, especially girl company. It makes me feel like I really missed out by not growing up with a sister or two in the house.
In other news: Big J is finally finding his sleep groove. I think he's done teething for a while, and he's been able to get into some good sleep rhythms. On Friday he took a 2+ hour nap! And while he goes to bed between 7-8pm, he's begun to sleep in - sometimes until 6 or even 7 am. You'll still see me yawning throughout the day, though. Now that I am catching up on my snoozing, I think my body is realizing how sleep deprived it's been for the last 8 months.

I love your tutu. I think it is very cute. I still wish I could have made it. I was looking forward to it all week. Oh well, maybe we can do it again sometime. Thanks for taking the time to organize it.

The tutu looks great! I wish we could have been there. I'm glad you had some fun girl time. I love it too!
