Snow, Sheep & Hot Cocoa

This morning I took my camera with me outside to get the paper. As you can see, there wasn't much left of the snow. The temps were already above freezing by 8am and the snow was melting.

I'm teaching the preschool Sunday School class this month so I made sure to be at church by 9:30. Three of the kids came and we had a good time playing with sheep masks and talking about God as our shepherd. Two of the kids posed for me to take their photo with my cellphone (forgot to take my camera!) and burst into fits of giggles when they saw the photos. :D One of the little girls pointed out a picture on the wall of Jesus with a flock of sheep. I hadn't even noticed it! Oops. But it did make me feel good that perhaps they were grasping a bit of the lesson amidst the giggles.

After Sunday School, Trent & I helped with set-up and clean-up for the lunch after the service. One of the members made his famous (well, famous to us) lasagna. Yum! Perfect for a chilly day. We came home briefly and changed for the gym. Before we left, I caught these doves relaxing in a sunny spot in our backyard out of the wind:
By 4, we were home and I was in my pajamas! Between keeping up with 3-6 year olds for an hour, running around for another 2 prepping & cleaning up lunch, followed by an hour at the gym. I'm officially worn out. I fixed myself a cup of hot chocolate w/ mini marshmallows in one of my favorite childhood mugs to help warm up and came upstairs to scrap.

I haven't made much progress scrapbooking. I'm toying around with a mixture of fun cat related items for a mini book. Here's a little sneak peek:
