So three down 14 to go!!  They are fun, though, and don't take as long as those Halloween quilt squares I did. Whew!! Well, naturally the pictures uploaded in the wrong order so I'll just go with it.

The first snowman is my 5 year old granddaughter's.  It is a cheerleader as you can see by the pompoms in her hands and the football players around her.

This is the 10 years old grandson's.  I love his pipe and he did the trees, so all I had to add was the ground line.

We live in SE Tennessee, and this is the best we got.  It's pretty, but we're staying in.  May go for a gator ride just to check out snow on our acreage.  We live 3/4 of a mile from the main road, so that could be my small adventure for today.  I'm cooking a slow cooker Taco Chicken Chili for supper.  We'll fix a little rice and be good to go.  It's from Skinnytaste  and even has WW points for this recipe.  I think I'm going to go there quite a bit.

I thought I'd introduce Rosey, our precious toy poodle.  She and a brother wandered up in our yard about 11 years ago.  She was the tiniest thing.  She needs a haircut, but she is a sick girl.  She has COPD and an enlarged heart.  She is on 5 meds a day and still coughs and coughs.  It's just heartbreaking for us.  But she still enjoys life.  She fetches and greets everyone who comes to the house, and she still pushes her food dish around when she doesn't have her favorite yellow pieces. At this point she has good quality of life but we are watching her closely.

This is my Valentine quilt.  It was popular several years ago.  I have repaired it a couple of times.  My granddaughter who is quite the quilt critique girl informed my that this had plenty of strings that need clipping, and she's right.  Guess I will get to that before she comes back to visit.  Wouldn't want her to have to deal with strings as she cuddles.

And, last but not least, this is my 7 year old grandson's snowman.  He got a snowboard for Christmas, so his snowman is holding the board.  I added the skier on the right, the trail marker, and the Ski App sign.  They live in NC and that is where they go.

Wow.  This turned into a book. Didn't mean to.  Hope you are having a good winter and are warm and happy wherever you are!!!
