Sunday’s Snippets: Winter Fun

It's been way too long since our last Sunday's Snippets post.  If you are new to Oopsey Daisy, welcome!  Sunday's Snippets is my chance to show little bits and pieces of my every day life.  I share my creative side with you, but I like to share real life too.  Because just like you, the majority of the time I am cleaning the house, doing laundry, reading the same Curious George book for the upteenth time, and trying to figure out what to cook for dinner!

For me, Sundays are all about family.  So I step away from my usual creative routine so I can share some peeks of my real life with you!  Most of the time, that includes showing what Little Man and my family have been up to.  Even thought the holidays are long-gone, I wanted to share some fun moments of our post-holiday celebrations.  My entire family was here in Colorado, and we definitely enjoyed every moment together!

I love these sunny, snow winter days.  We might have 60 degrees one day; snow the next.  The spontaneity keeps me guessing!  But one thing I do love:  We almost always have blue skies and sunshine.

One of my favorite moments was visiting "Sledding Hill" (Yes, that's really the name of the park!) to try out our new sleds.  The hill (and the hike back up!) were endless.  This was Little Man's very first time sledding, and he loved it!  He went down the hill all by himself!  The hikes back up the hill tired pooped him out and made for a great nap that day!

We enjoyed a trip to the Denver Zoo for "Zoo Lights" one evening.  This was my favorite lights display of the entire season!

We bundled up for the cold, but it was quite a lovely evening!  There was just one problem:  Little Man kept asking where all the animals were!  We'll have to return to the zoo to see the animals when they're still awake!

Of course we had to make a holiday food tour of some of our favorite food spots!  This yummy hole-in-the-wall Mexican spot is one of our fave's.  The salsa has gotten spicier and the sopapillas have gotten bigger!  But the entire meal was delicious!

Little Man has become quite the artist lately 🙂 He's loving his new giant coloring pad--a gift from his aunt, uncle, and cousins!

The holidays with a toddler are such a magical time!  I enjoyed watching this little guy experience Christmas!   I didn't want it to end!

I sure do love this Little Man of mine.  He seems so grown up to me these days.  He says words like 'deee-licious!" and "lens cap" and "giggling." Every day some new word sneaks its way into his vocabulary. He's my buddy, that's for sure.

I hope you'll join me for another week of Oopsey Daiy fun!  Here is what's on tap here on the ol' blog;

* A Valentine's Day craft with a Pride & Prejudice theme (again!)

* A yummy recipe with a festive Valentine's Day touch

* Another inspiring Wednesday's Wowzers linky party

* A fun giveaway

* Another easy peasy valentine!

What were the best parts of your week?

  1. I would have to agree that Sunday is my favorite time of the week. On most Sundays after church we lounge around and just spend some good time together. Saturdays are always filled with things to do and places to go, but Sundays around here are restful 🙂 Your new sleds look fun!

  2. Oh, your little man is getting soooo big! It happens way too fast! One of my favorite parts of my week was being back with my 4 year old class– I miss them! The other part was getting all the Christmas stuff stowed– finally! Working on fresh winter decor and CLEANING this weekend.
    Enjoy, Alison!

  4. I love your posts! I am in Colorado too! Email me if you want too – may be we are closer than we think!

  5. Great pictures! Looks like you are having tons of fun. I am loving the spontaneous weather, but I could really use a little snow. Not a lot, just a little.
