Snow and some awards :)

Snow is fun!

It's been snowing since Wednesday, and it was enough to make winter's first snowman and for a little sledding :) The kids had great fun, but I think the snow could have waited at least a month before it came... It's been raining today, so the snow have turned into wet slush now... Which is not so fun to play in.

I have received two awards lately - and I know I'm slow to past them on... But here it goes.

I got this from Fiolinn back in July (yes, I know I'm SO slow to pass it on...).  There are some "rules" to go with it though...

Thank the blogger who bestowed you with the award.
I really appreciate it!! When someone thinks my little blog have substance, it makes me happy :) So thank you so much, Fiolinn! Which have a great blog you should make a visit :)

New friendships, fun, learning, creative and motivational.
It's been over 5 years since I started blogging and it's been five years where I have tried to make my own way of blogging :) It started out as a blog mainly for showing off my knitting, but have developed to become more and more of a combined kniting and mommy blog :)

That was hard to pick out 25 bloggers for these to awards - there are so many more great blogs out there!!
But these are some of those who gives me inspiration to knit, great pictures, yummy recipe's, great nature
experiences and great stories from their parenthood and everyday lives!
I just wish I had more time to write you comments... I read your post, but the time is not always there. So for some of you I'm what you call " a lurker" - just reading your blogs without letting you know I'm there ;)
Have a great Friday, and hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with a pair of mittens ;)
