What a perfect day!!!

What a fabulous morning we've had already! Can it get much better than this?

Our view when we woke up this morning...

A hot cup of cocoa...

And a nice warm fire (notice Bailey's babies warming up on the hearth!)

We only THOUGHT we had seen snow yesterday. But today was like a winter wonderland! And our little snow bunny loved every minute of it! We walked around, made snowballs, and caught snowflakes on our tongues (there's nothing like a little one to make you feel young again too)! Then we built a snowman- which I will say was VERY cold work! I admire people that can make them lifesize- they must have hands of steel! Here's some snapshots for our morning!

Nice to meet you snowman!

Would you like some raisins? (The raisins were supposed to be for our snowman's mouth, but somebody decided it would be better to eat them instead!)

I decided to move our snowman to a chair so Bailey could see him through the window. As you can see by his bare face, he didn't fare so well in the move!

Craftapalooza!!!- Remodel of Bailey's Room

Those of you who know me well know that I LOVE a good bargain. I am one of those annoying people who will spend hours on end making something instead of buying it because I can do it cheaper. My house is stocked with paint pens, hot glue, and thread. I think I could be a very valuable resource on a deserted island. (My husband may disagree with me on this one!)

So, anyway, we've been sprucing up this old house of ours for almost 2 years now- WOW! And I can say that I'm finally finished with yet another room- Bailey's bedroom. When I was pregnant we decided that we would not find out the gender of our baby, so this made decorating a little tricky. Once Bailey was born, I started looking for some girly accent pieces and fabric that could make her room a little more feminine.

So here's the before pictures from the previous owners:

And here's our little Bailey Bug's room now!

And now for a pat on my own back. I have to admit that I've become a crafty blog stalker lately. I love do-it-yourself craft blogs. (Now if I only had the time to make any of this stuff...) So here's my own did-it-myself section. Aside from all the major stuff that David did in the room (replaced flooring, new fan/light fixture, repaired holes in wall, textured and painted walls, etc.) here's my little list. I made all of this myself and it was all so cheap and easy. I know it's nothing fancy, but it's perfect for us!
