Owl Be Thinking of You

Hello!  Happy Monday!  Hope your having a great day!  I am so enjoying the less business of January so far!  Today I have a card to share that uses my friend Jenny Suchin's first stamp set for the Crafts Meow!  Last night I sat down and played with it, it's absolutely adorable!  Heres my card:

I did a lot of paper piecing with cardstock for this. I also finally used my grass die by MFT that I had to have and got in the summer and than never used! 

We had a great weekend.  On Saturday we had a couple over to watch hockey and hang out.  On Sunday after church we went sledding.  It was our first time trying out a toboggan run as opposed to sledding down the hill.  And I much prefer a toboggan run!  Less scary, no worries of crashing into people and so much fun!  I feel wrong saying that as I grew up next to a huge hill that we would sled on practically daily in the winter!  I think it's just my old age!  :>  I bet when the kids get older the hills will be what they want!  The weather was 0 and since we went early right at lunch time (early service means early lunch) we were the only ones there!  I love family fun!

Today the kids started skating lessons for the first time!  For Ariel it was overdue and for Carter it was probably a bit early.  He is in a parent and tot class he did well at first but soon had enough.  Hopefully next week will be better!  Ariel did well! 

I want to share two great recipes I made today that I got off pintrest.  For dinner I made this Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken.  And it turned out amazing!  We all loved it!  So tasty!  And than tonight after dinner I saw these Donut Mini Muffins and had to make them!  They were sooo yummy!  We have kiosks here that sell mini donuts and these tasted even better than those!  You so have to try them, they are delicious!

I am off to spend some time with Chad!  Thanks for stopping by!  :>
