Frosty - Take Two

Hunter had a project for school this week. Make a snowman. No directions, except no snow, everything is up to you. I had visions of a cute styrofoam snowman, but frankly, I'm not that creative. The only thing I could think of was gluing cotton balls on construction paper as a kid. So we tried to put a better spin on it. And Hunter was able to do a lot of this himself. I don't think we did TOO bad. He had a lot of fun and was proud to show it off at school.

And oh, he is Student of the Month! Something he has been working hard for the entire year.

For those that asked, Carter's rash didn't get better, it got worse. So I took him to the doctor earlier in the week and it's eczema. Thanks to the recommendation from Ashlee we are trying the Calendula Cream from California Baby. I am also exploring the idea that this could be food related. There are some food sensitivities in my husbands family. So for now I am omitting dairy.

And speaking of Ashlee, if you haven't checked out her new sling business, you should. I have seen one in person and they are beautiful and so well made. I can't wait to own the Chocolat one!

But for the rest of this afternoon, I am going to enjoy the quiet of my house. My husband has taken my two oldest ice fishing. It's only like 8 degrees outside, but he says it gets warm in the shanny with his little heater. I am going to take their word for it, and stay snuggled up in the house with the baby today.

You're too sweet! I hope Carter's face gets feeling better soon! And I can't believe your boys are out in this weather - it's soooo cold and windy!

What a fantastic job on the snowman. I still have some of our teen's schoolwork.
Happy Send A Friend A Card Day!
