Weekend Project


When Tim moved back home, all of his shop and tools got thrown in the office. Papa and I cleaned it out and hung the lights. Now you can find stuff!

Moon sand, AKA kinetic sand. It's fascinating. Even big kids like to play with it.


Mikey made igloos, snowmen, and spent about an hour mixing, patting, and being messy.  Lots of fun that the dyson cleaned right up. Just look at that face!

What a difference a day makes

Winter one day

Spring the next


Seriously, it's 63 degrees out!

Winter Fun!

Winter has arrived!

We got what was forecasted, which was 6-8 inches. It has lasted 3 days so far, which is I think the longest it has ever stayed on the ground here. We have had a couple of freezing nights, so the road is also pretty well iced over. Last night, a truck turned around in our driveway, but then could not get up the hill without a long running start.




The kids are enjoying sledding.

Merry Christmas Eve

Clara gave us Chris Kringle today. Mikey helped me get him warm and back out to his mommy.




The elves are signing off for the year and heading back to the north pole.



Good night all!

Finished!

Finally finished, and not a moment too soon!

The blue, green, yellow one is for Michael, and the pink, purple, orange one is for Holly. These are made with soft and squishy blanket yarn. They are roughly the size of a twin bed, so perfect cuddly size for snuggling up with a book on a cold day.

Christmas Party in Huntsville

I had a fantastic opportunity to go to Huntsville for a couple of days since all my support people were in town. I went to the company Christmas party for the first time ever.

Three days of meetings, and spending time talking to each of my people. It was a good opportunity to catch up,

Here is a picture of the new building.



And here is my support team, with our director at the top and me, the manger at the bottom.
