ATTITUDE IS A LITTLE THING THAT MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE. ~ Winston Churchill

Winston and I had a fun time tonight cutting out some snowflakes. He was feeling a little down because his older brothers didn't want to play with him, so to cheer him up I suggested we open the art kit that Santa had brought him for Christmas. He started out drawing a picture of our house and then a picture of a snowflake.
Looking at his snowflake picture, we decided to cut out a few of our own to hang in his room. I haven't cut out snowflakes for years and it took me a few tries to remember how to fold and cut to get a decent looking one but we kept trying. We hung up our best ones on his bedroom wall.
Snowflakes are such a fun project. The possibilities are endless and they're perfect for January - especially this year. It's been the coldest January we've had since Winston was born. I'm actually hoping it will snow some more soon to bring the temperatures up out of the single digits. Brrrr!
"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the strong because at some point in your life, you will have been all of these."
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children...to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
