Did I Say SUNriver? I Meant SNOWriver! And Some Crafts Too!

We woke up to a TON (well, it's a TON to us) of snow. About 6" total fell during the day. It snowed on and off all day long. The girls loved it.

Aaron, Noah, Juliette, and Joseph went to Mt. Bachelor to go snowboarding. Madeline, Annabel, Delilah, me and the Trio stayed home and did crafts and played in the snow.

We made fairies and fairy houses. I can't take the credit for the idea or the actual crafts though. It was all Madeline. She brought all the things the girls would need to make their fairies. Annie was in heaven. She had such a good time. And it was so fun to watch the 3 of them interact. I basically just gave ideas here and there, since I was feeding and holding babies.

Madeline took the girls out to hunt for "stuff" for the houses. Madeline realized as soon as she woke up that maybe they should've hunted for leaves, pinecones and branches the day before. When there was no snow.

Annie couldn't wait to do the fairy dust (glitter) just like Tinkerbell.
Stay tuned for the finished fairies and houses!!
