From the camera...

The castle Miss S made out of paper

  1. It's so hard to wrap my head around that some parts of the country are still getting snow when it's 80 plus here in Louisiana.

    I had started taking naps on a regular basis in the mid morning but it was mainly due to a massive lack of sleep. I do enjoy them however when I can.

    That castle is stellar.

    1. Hi Felicia,

      We generally have snow from October through May and are very happy when spring finally arrives!

      Miss S says thank you for your kind words. :)

  2. I too find it so weird that some areas are still getting snow, but then again, we had frost yesterday morning so I guess it's not that uncommon.

    Love the paper castle, how cute :)
