what a winter...

it has been a such a long cold snowy winter, I was thankful for a little break from all the shoveling snow, and actually enjoy the snow, we took in the Jack Frost Children winter fest, that took place at the end of February.
The kids had the time of their lives at this place, and so did I. It was great to get out and enjoy the snow instead of complaining about it. with that said I hope we are done of the snow for this year... my poor back can't take anymore.

I thought this was a cool shot the boys are looking at me  through a huge block of ice

Helping to build an Igloo 

Julia is the one in the purple coat, she was beyond excited to meet Olaf !

Emmet  was a huge hit with the boys

 I got tons of knitting done in the last few months...I made 3 sweaters 3 pairs of socks lots of slippers and a few hats I don't think there was a day that went by that I didn't pick up the needles.
