Concrete Snow People

I have been wanting to make snowmen and I
 started last night.
Used Portland cement, perlite, and peat moss mixed water in.
I took a long nail and put the balls on the nail.
It gives it strength.
Cut twigs for arms and inserted them when the
cement was drying.
Used tiny buttons and black snaps for eyes.
The noses are sculpty clay and wool for scarves.
My daughter helped me make them, it was a fun project.
Not as easy as I thought it would be though.
I gave some as gifts today and we will keep the rest.
Until next time....

My Christmas Present

What a great day, it was in the 50's today!! It has been cold here so, 50 felt warm. I was outside most of the day. One thing that I didn't get done in the fall was clean up my new lawn mower. This is my Christmas present, birthday present, etc.. LOL! I cleaned up some leaves. Tomorrow I will pick up Danny at the airport. He spent Christmas in Ft. Worth, Texas, this was the first Christmas ever without him. 
Can't wait to see him!!

The Day After Christmas

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!
This is one of our Golden Retrievers, Maddie.
She is a sweetie!
We headed north to Marblehead, Ohio
Christmas Eve.
This is Grady, we call him
Mr. Grady Baby!
He is just over 1 year old and is our baby.

We spent Christmas eve at my husband's
family. This is the boat docks, minus all
the boats. It sure looks different in the winter.
This is my great nephew, Kaden.
It was cold!!
Christmas day we went to my mom and dad's.
I ate way too much, today I haven't done too much.
Tomorrow I hope I get back on track.
Until next time.....

Starry Snowman

The snow and ice are all gone here in Ohio.
It feels like spring and we have flooding here.
I can't believe we are just a couple days away
from Christmas.
I think I'm ready, just a few things to get done.
Tomorrow I will finish everything up.
I finished hooking this rug yesterday.
It is a design by Stone and Thread.
Enjoy your Sunday Evening!!!
