Driving in a Winter Wonderland

Got any ideas for safer commutes in scary weather? I need them. This winter’s been a bit too exciting around here. If I’m not mistaken, we’ve had at least one major storm per week since November. Given the fact that I have to drive down one mountain, around another, and across a long highway to get my kids to and from school every day, it can be a dangerous commute for us in the snow. And I’ve not been nearly as prepared as I should be. Sometimes I wish I could just sell the house and go get a condo close to the school. But in this last storm, not even that would have helped.

Sheep Ornaments

While setting up my tree this year, I turned around to find my babies with glass balls stuck on their fingers like olives. Ouch! Here’s my attempt at a more kid friendly ornament. Update: About two days after I’d posted this, I stumbled upon the Christmas edition of one of my favorite magazines, Family Fun. Looks like someone else had a clever idea with pipe cleaners and yarn too! (If only I could have seen that BEFORE I played with yarn for an hour trying to figure out how to do it!!) Their tutorial is much shorter and the effect is similar.Click here to view it, or you can read this: 🙂
