Santa with elephant RR


It's that time of the year when people are in a Holiday spirit, so consequently the art is Christmasy colored. I try to space out round robin cards so there is no more than one post a month but since they're all Holiday themed, I'll just show them all this month.

This Round Robin was started by Linda4atc with the elephant, MissM added the Christmas tree and I finished with Santa.

Last Saturday we woke up to 30 cm of snow again and no electricity. Because of the heavy snowfall the power went out. To our household that means we also have no heating and no water which can become a problem, if the power stays out for too long and the house grows cold.

Then on Monday and Tuesday we had hurricane winds and rain that took out electricity again and caused floods and mudslides throughout the country. On the up side, most of the snow melted because it was so warm. But it didn't last long because we had another shipment of snow on Wednesday.

On Thursday we went to the city's kids winter park and my kid went ice skating for the first time. I haven't been on skates since high school and let me tell you my legs did not appreciate this activity.

When was the last time you went ice skating?

Scrolls and Elves

Here are a couple of Round Robin sets I started 3 years ago actually and were finished 2 years ago but I forgot to show them here on the blog last year so here they are now.

I made the backgrounds with Adirondack sprays and added a scroll to the first set and border to the second one. Miss M added the first row of characters on the scroll and Tandy finished it with the second row.
Mcgillisj added the elf to my background and Tandy finished it with the ornaments. 

Randomness:
  • I'm learning Spanish this month. The local library offered a free class on short notice and I jumped on it. 
  • I'm having fun with my kid with everyday special holiday activities. He got his first presents this week thanks to St. Nicholas we celebrate on 6th. Dec. Toy violin was the main gift. 
  • The kid is loving the skis. Nobody in our family knows how to ski, so you can imagine the hilarity of the situation. 
  • The little pooch needed a haircut because she was getting depressed but that means she's cold now outside. Consequently, she spends most time on the sofa.
  • We're getting a new shipment of snow tomorrow. Hopefully it won't be much. We have enough as it is.

Christmas Foxes

How freaking cute is this Round Robin set? I love it. MissM started the set with the right fox, I added the left one and BexMadeMe finished with the rest.

It's December and I wanted to make this month more fun for my kid. I wrote down activities to do together each day of the month and put them in a jar for the kid to pull out every day. Of course I'm going to adapt it to the events we have scheduled already. The idea was to do special things that we don't normally do.

One of those was to put together a bookcase so we can organize his books and toys. Unfortunately I ordered it on line and it came earlier than expected. Because I couldn't curb his excitement, we had to put it together before 1st Dec. So, here we were on Wednesday morning before I even brushed my teeth or washed my face, putting together a bookcase in our PJs.

On Thursday, we put together my new office chair. He loves helping out even though he gets in a way and has his own ideas where stuff should go. Now I have to think up new activities to fill out two days in December.

Today we're going to a nearby town to the Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Hopefully the weather's not too bad. It's been snowing since Wednesday.

What are your doing this December? Anything special?

Dorothy

I've been remembering my dreams lately. I've had a period of time when I woke up without knowing what I dreamed or if I dreamed at all. These days I remember some weird dreams.

One day I was on a train and just stepped out on that step before you hit the ground and the train closed the doors and sped off with me holding onto it. It went into a tunnel and there were cats in it.

Another day, I dreamed about cleaning my ears with a q-tip and then had cotton bud stuck in my ear. I was pulling that stuff out forever but got it out eventually.

Yesterday I dreamed about being in a shallow river and telling my hubby not to lose his wallet when he sat on a pool floaty to go with the river flow.

Do you remember your dreams? What kind of dreams have you been having lately?

Winter landscape

I don't really do landscapes. They're not my thing, so I made this one really simplistic. Lots of snow. :)

That's what we had in the beginning of this week on the night from Sunday to Monday. 20 cm of snowfall. In inches that's about 7,5-8". It's melting quickly thought but it's still here. My kid loves it. He wasn't that interested last year but this year he's excited.

On the morning of the snowfall he actually skipped milk bottle and breakfast so he could go out and play in the snow while it was still snowing. He's so adorable.

And because it gets dark so early these days, the kid didn't want to go outside in the dark after his afternoon nap to get some air, so I got him a couple of flashlights to entertain himself. It's proven to be a hit.

Did you have your first snow this year already?
