The other day a box filled with wonder and magic arrived at our doorstep. The children had been told that a box of cedarwood from their grandparent's farm might arrive for them to create more fairy houses. The room was filled with anticipation as we opened the box and found much more than just cedar wood. There were seed pods, evergreen boughs, pinecones and wonderful knarled wood. If you heard the oohs and ahhs in the room, you would have thought that a new lego toy was in that box.
Tracy's Kane' first book and will be receiving her next two in their Easter baskets. I love that you can make fairy houses anywhere, in any season and out of anything natural. It is fun to later check them and see if the fairies have arrived. Here are some more pictures of our fairy houses, of laying in the snow watching the clouds roll by and of Z's sledding adventure. I am so happy that Mother Nature blessed us with one last chance to enjoy this very strange (and snowless until now) winter.
