Been dealing with flu-ey kids here but managed to find some time to do a bit of catch up on JYC Prompt - "Weather" for Day 2. From Holiday Word Art Vol. 2 I printed "Capturing December" onto scrap paper and "December Heart" onto photo paper, attempted to create my own Ali-esque template for the background. Oops, excuse the funky cropping! Day 2 Overlay from Ali, I did the Journaling in Word then placed over photo. It reads:
"Growing up in Wisconsin meant not IF there would be a Snow Day but WHEN. Waking up early and sitting in silence as we listened to the radio, hoping to hear our school called. And then cheering and jumping up with excitement when it was finally announced. This didn’t mean back to bed, it meant into snowsuits to build ramps & Luge style track down the hill in our backyard for sledding with other neighborhood kids. When we couldn’t take the cold anymore it was inside for Rummy Royal or Yahtzee and Hot Chocolate and Popcorn. That night there would be discussion if we thought tomorrow would also another SNOW DAY and I think we all went to bed with a wish those nights."
If you were "lucky" enough to have Wintery days off - what did you love most?
Back to trying to tending to kiddos, all home from school today and maybe onto Day 3!
