Franklyn has been praying for snow ever since he was able to speak. Apparently, God finally saw fit to provide! :-) With no snow boots to throw on his feet, we stuck Franklyn in his good tennis shoes and wrapped WalMart bags around them. He didn't mind. All he cared about was getting out in the snow.

Franklyn has had this snow hat for a couple of years and was really excited to finally get to wear it. Can't you tell?

The only gloves we had for Franklyn were the one size fits all knit gloves you find at dollar stores for a dollar... I know his little hands had to be frozen, but he was not deterred. He just wanted to dig right in!

Franklyn was practically buried in the snow when he made his snow angels. He had so much fun!

Franklyn and Daddy made a HUGE snowman. It was Franklyn's first. I wanted to use a cheese stick for his nose because we didn't have any carrots. Franklyn thought that was silly. He insisted that they should just use a stick... He is soooooo practical!

New Bedroom Furniture

Scott and I have been married for almost eighteen years and we have never had NEW bedroom furniture... After so many years of hand me downs, we finally decided to bite the bullet and purchase what we've always wanted. I've been addicted to HGTV and felt inspired to completely get rid of everything we had in the bedroom. The only things that returned after being moved out were the pillows on the bed!

I bought all new picture frames, printed a variety of new 8x10 photographs, bought new lamps, new bowls, new candles, a new down comforter... Seeing the end result, I am soooo happy!

One thing I love about the room now is that it is so simple! There is not a lot of clutter and things just seem more in order. One thing I DON'T love would be the bruises and knots on my legs from bumping into the footboard over and over again. It's going to take a while to get used to it being there!
