5 on Friday

Deanna, yes it feels great to walk by that room and see unencumbered to the window, but you're right. . .the chaos starts over tomorrow.

We woke up yesterday to our first snowfall, in the Denver area anyway, the mountains have been getting snow for a few weeks now.  A couple inches was enough to get the kids excited.  Me, too actually.  Winter is my second favorite season, but with a few leaves still clinging to the trees and the minuscule color still to be found in patches, I'll suck out the joy I find in autumn until that last leaf is gone.  And then I'll fully embrace the winter.

Kids are off school today, so it's been fairly relaxing having them home.  On the one hand it means less running, on the other more there is a little more chaos and noise.  But I'm one child down as well, and it seems when that happens, there's less bickering; doesn't matter which child, remove any one and the fighting stops.  Weird.

We do have a rather full weekend, so having today is nice.  We have a basketball tourney over the next couple days for the 10 y.o., the 13 y.o. has a birthday party (boy/girl), the adults get to attend the Crystal Ball  and the kids are going to the Rapids quarter-final soccer game - that should be cool for them.  Frigid with snow, but fun.

And for you?  Well you get to start your weekend with today's 5 on Friday.
  • 1 sheet of cardstock (two sheets if you are doing a 2-page)
  • 1 sheet of stickers
  • 1 set of buttons
  • 1 length of ribbon
  • 1 set of diecuts
Outside of the ingredients listed above, you can only have journaling and a title - otherwise you're limited to "the list."  Yes, I know.  There is no patterned paper.  Have this and the other challenges up by Sunday evening get your chance to win a Treat.

Alrighty then, ya'll have a great weekend.
