Sacred Ordinaryness

Results of a little Christmas evening scrapbooking.  If you look closely you can see many of the gifts Emma received.  We enjoyed a quiet Christmas at home soaking up what Rev. Jim called "sacred ordinaryness" in his Christmas Eve sermon last evening.

More snow photos

Here are some more photos I took yesterday.

#AliYT Week 8 layout: Perspectives

This is the layout I did for Week 8 of Ali's Yesterday and Today class.  It was fun brainstorming the sentences and choosing the photos.  So fun to do something on a theme with the photos supporting rather than choosing the photos and then writing the story around them. If you click on the photos you can view them larger to read the text.

Chloe's first big snow

It started snowing here last night about 10 pm and is still snowing lightly.  It's hard to tell how much we got because of all wind.  The snow is drifted up in places and blown away in others.  This was Chloe's first big snow. We had a dusting a week or so ago, but that doesn't count.  When I let her out this morning the snow was as tall as her back.  She was a bit put out at first, but then just started leaping through it. Here we are on a short walk to pick up Emma's friend Ally for a playdate. 

I love my new coat. It's only about three weeks old. It's perfect for waiting for the bus, or going for walks -- whatever.  I hate hats anyway and the hood really stays up and keeps me nice and warm.  (Don't worry it's fake fur of course)

Here's our house -- you can just see Emma standing on the porch.

Chloe out playing in the snow.

Emma with her saucer.  She and Ally cleared a path so they could use the saucer to slide down the big pile of snow left by the snow plow.
