Ta Da! Week two's ornament is unveiled. A beautiful snowflake for your tree.
There's nothing like waking up early after it snowed all night and the world is blanketed white. Everything seems so peaceful and still. This is just a fleeting moment until to realize you have to trudge to work in the stuff. And then it snows again the next week and next week and you wish you owned a house in the Caribbean.

After last week's freak snowstorm, I started to wonder if this is what we have to look forward to this winter. Time to refer to the trusty Farmers' Almanac. This year's Farmers' Almanac says a "very active storm track will bring much heavier-than-normal precipitation from the Southern Plains through Tennessee into Ohio, the Great Lakes, and the Northeast. Because of above normal temperatures, much of the precipitation will likely be rain or mixed precipitation, although, during February, some potent East Coast storms could leave heavy snow, albeit of a wet and slushy consistency." So perhaps not too many snowflakes this winter. Personally, I prefer my snowflakes on a Christmas tree.
Thank you so much for the donations last week! I was absolutely blown away by how many of you ordered the entire set. Hugs to all of you for helping our dreams come true. We are so blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives.
If you'd like to donate $5, I'll send you an ornament. I still have a few week one ornaments left as well. To donate, click on our fundraising page - Christmas Ornament Fundraiser.
