It is Friday and time for Annie's Friday smiles. If you look back through my last couple of posts you will see that there have been lots of snowy related smiles this week, but here are a couple that I haven't shared with you yet....Alex trick sledging (face first on his front),
and one of him walking up the slope from school - I have been pulling him on the sledge most days, but he has to walk up the hills - I'm not that strong!
I have even included a little video, if it works, of Alex doing a solo run down the little slope near school.
This is how the snow looked over the valleys today on my way to work...we still have a lot, but it is getting icy and rather nasty so I hope that the temperature warms up to melt the icy patches.
And to finish, I did manage to do a little crafting yesterday, to make a leaving card for my PhD student who has finished in the lab, but still has to write up - hence the pile of books featured on the card and the Good Luck sentiment. The stamp is from Whiff of Joy, coloured with promarkers, cut out and mounted on the background.  I am entering this card into Ooh La La 'Wheels', CCC 'girly', PTW 'bow', Crafty creations 'use 2 of the same item' (2 gems in the top right hand corner), and Stamping for the weekend 'something girly'.  That is all from me and I hope I made you smile.  Have a great weekend everyone.

Really loved the video...we have some of the twins sledging but I have no idea how to get one on my blog :-)
Thanks for sharing to join in the fun.
