Yes- fortunately our snow of yesterday did not last. It melted almost immediately! Hooray!
Later in the day I pulled (dragged and pushed) the castle into the house that my friend Rayna and I built at work for our department "Candy Land" display on Halloween. I love when you spend dollar after dollar on electronic, trendy or popular toys for kids and when it comes down to it, they are thrilled to be playing in a large cardboard box. (Yes- yet another "Aha!" moment for me as I get more and more into handmade toys and gifts and begin truly contemplating why we own so much "STUFF"). Griffin, as usual, had to dress the part. He quickly found his knight helmet, breastplate and sword. You'll notice he is trying on his snow boots as well. He is now calling them his knight boots!
Hands on mom that I am (hee hee), I volunteered to be G's damsel in distress, since I thought this could save me from the menacing, evil enemy of unwashed laundry, my personal nemesis. Alas, he wanted Rowan to be a real princess for him. Not me. Oh well. I'm off now to fight some more battles, armed with laundry soap and some Oxy Clean. Wish me luck :)
