Why Did I even do my hair? (Make Something Monday)

Make Something Monday
Well technically I made this last night, but I'm blogging about it Monday :). Of course I need to tell a story first, so weed down to the bottom for my goods that I made.


Yesterday after the kids literally driving me batty I decided it was time to venture out. I bundled all the kids up, poor Caden was in 3 layers! He looked like a mini Michelin Man, he could barely put his arms down. When we got in the car little flutters of snow started coming down. I was like no biggy boys yesterday it did the same thing we'll be fine. On our way there Anngie called and decided to turn back, I'm like oh girl it's nothing but a little snow. Well let me tell you, we got to the Zoo around 4:30. Tarra was running a little late, so we sat in the car watching the flakes get bigger and bigger. I looked over and saw it was sticking, now isn't this going to be pretty with the lights and all the snow! SUCKER, yup Mother Nature was making fun of me, you see the flakes was her sticking her tongue out at me! Cole turned to me and said mom God is making it snow, an hour later he said God you can stop making it snow. Got to love kids thinking.

So we venture to the gates which were closed and we had to wait in line, thinking no worries were members it's easy. Again SUCKER snow was coming down in heaps, I had Caden wrapped in two blankets where just his little eyes were visible. They open up on member line and then a second, as I try to walk over to the open window you know since i was second in line. The lovely gentleman behind me sidesteps me and steps in, Happy Holidays to you too!

Even though it was SUPER cold the scene was gorgeous, the lights with the snow was a sight to see. We actually were there until 6:30pm walking around, mind you my cute boots are so not "Winter" boots, so every step I took I had lovely squish of water come up between my toes.

Along with my wet glove from wiping the snow off Caden every few minutes. It was so funny you see these little eyes and a snow cap that covered the blanket. We stopped and got hot coco which mind you was in such a cute little kids cup. Did I mention that cute cup was $3.50!! Yup told the boys hold onto those with your dear life. The same cup that later when we got into car I look at Roy where is your cup. Shoulder shrug I threw it away! You threw away a heavy duty plastic cup? The same one I told you to hold on to? Same shoulder shrug (ugh mental head slap).

What an amazing experience it was cold but for the most part the kids loved it and minus my wet soaks and brittle fingers (that I thought might need to be amputated) it was a lovely night.
What was even better was the smell when we opened up the front door, no silly it was a good smell. I had the Pot Roast going in the crockpot (recipe on the bottom of post) and the new bread recipe in the breadmaker was done too. Dinner was a success Roy even had seconds! I guess I do something right ... LOL.

On a side note - Host people rescheduled for tonight, fingers crossed it goes well.

P.S. Another side note the snow melted by 10pm last night, talk about Mother Nature giving me a Raspberry! =D
