Snowing Coloring

Okay, before we get started today I wanted to mention a few things regarding yesterday's post.  Thank you SO much for your input.  It seemed as though 85% of you liked the vlogging.  However, there were a few things I didn't think of beforehand (readers who don't have sound on their computers at work, readers who are deaf, etc.)  So, here's my plan.  I will continue to do vlogging for some of the Wake Up Wednesdays, but there will also be a shortened text version in the post, for those who need it or those who don't like watching videos.  That way no one is missing out.  Okay?

That being said, yesterday's Wake Up Wednesday Challenge (if you missed the video) was to give compliments to strangers.  Try it out all week long and on Wednesday you can tell us all how it went. 

Now on to today's post.  I cannot take credit for this idea.  I heard of someone doing this a long time ago and logged it away as an idea to try with Rex for fun.  Not sure where the idea came from...maybe a parenting magazine, but it's easy, cheap, and fun. 

We filled some spray bottles with water and a bit of food coloring.  (You could also use squirt guns if you have them.)  Then we headed outside for some artsy fun.  (If you need spray bottles they are usually in the travel section at Target or Wal-mart for less than a dollar.)

I avoided using yellow (you know why) and red (didn't want it to look like a murder scene.)  Rex loved spraying the snow.

Well, actually, I thought it was pretty fun as well.

And since spraying is very strenuous work....

....we recommend finishing it off with some hot chocolate.

If you don't have snow right now.....then lucky you!  I'm already anxious for spring.  I love being able to leave the house without alotting 10 minutes to get everyone's coats and shoes on.

And before you go, since a couple of you asked to see my new haircut down...here it is.  It's got lots of layers, which makes it look longer and makes it less work for me, too.

Thanks for reading!  See you tomorrow!
