easy & fun

Add color to the grays of a winter landscape with a
sun catcher made of ice.
Ice cube tray
Food coloring
Round cake pan (we used a pot)
Plastic cup
First, create colorful ice cubes by adding one to three drops of food coloring to the water in each section of the tray. Use only a few matching colors, as they will run together in the pan later. Freeze the cubes completely.
Fill a round cake pan about two-thirds full of water. To make the hole for the ribbon, set a plastic cup full of water in the pan. Place the pan in the freezer for an hour or so. Put the colored ice cubes in the pan, then let all the liquid freeze solid. Remove the plastic cup, flip the sun catcher out of the pan, then hang it outside with ribbon.
**wiggles & i took a suction cup hook and put it on the window outside in our laundry room. the kiddos just love looking at it.
*you can use shaped ice cubes for added fun.

bed time

tonight, alice was having a real problem with the sound of sleet against her windows.

ten minutes after putting her to bed, she yells down to me and says,
"mom, can you call mother nature and tell her to turn off the sleet?" "No," i replied.

"well, do you know her cell phone number?" she says back to me.
