Toot Your Horn Tuesday - Yet Another Tuesday

Seems like Tuesday is just about the only time that I take the time for my blog anymore. I apologize! But at least I've got all of these friends playing along! So I'm happy for that!

Boy did it rain this morning! I felt so bad that my husband and kids had to go off to work and to school, while Glynis and I stayed cozy-dry in the house. It actually turned into a really great day. For one, I did a "craft!" Ha Ha! Not really a craft, but I took a shoebox, covered it with wrapping paper and designated it the "playdoh box." Glynis helped of course and she is so happy with her new pretty box.

By the afternoon, the sun was shinning and it warmed up into the lower 60s. We went on a walk and stomped through the puddles. It felt soooo good compared to our usual 40 degree winter days.

The other cool thing I have to share today is a special video for my new-found crafting friends. A little scary, but funny none the less. :) I actually came across this artist while watching one of Glynis' favorite shows, Yo Gabba Gabba. You've probably seen it if there's a preschooler in your life. Leslie Hall did a "dancy dance" on the show. She was such an odd character so I figured I'd look her up on the Internet. Turns out, she's a crafting/rap artist!
I dedicate this video to all my CRAFTY TOOTERS!

What a pleasant little place you have. It's so cozy and I feel right at home.

I love the name of your blog. I feel like a silly little sparrow most days. Thank the Lord for keeping His eye on the sparrow!

There are days that I feel bad that my husband and son have to go out into the cold and I get to stay home and drink coffee in my jammies.

But then there are days the toddler wakes up and I am feeding and entertaining her before 8am, so it all evens out!

Thank you for hosting the blog party again this week. :D
