What a sweet reunion

That is the first thing that came to my mind when my brother called me to let me know President Hinckley died. He is now with his best friend and love of his life. I think of all the wonderful things that happened under his service, especially all the temples that have been built. I will miss his wonderful messages at General Conference and great sense of humor.

Well this is the essence of M. When I took this pictures in Maine, I hadn't intended it to be a fantasy picture. But when I was reviewing the pictures it was what it called for. M my little spunky, in tune with the earth sprite.

where is the baby?

No this was not staged. The photo was snapped after we heard a crashing noise (the toy bins pulled off the shelf) and there was L in the second shelf. We our obviously encouraging this behavior by taking pictures and laughing hysterically. Oh well. It was worth it right!

snow day..hooray

Well it is about time we get on with Winter so that we can enjoy the Spring. We have had 60 degree weather and that is just not January weather. While I don't mean to complain it just makes the times that are to come (below zero temps) seem so unbearable. brrrr. The snow was perfect for building a snowman so that is exactly what the kids did.

Santa's helper (you are still in trouble ;) you know who you are!!) Christmas night dropped off a few more presents for my kids. A was delighted. So here are a couple of snapshots of his new favorite thing.

catch up

Okay my Dad called me to remind me my blog has been neglected and that I seem to be playing favorites and he is very concerned about my love for my oldest child. So hopefully I will be able to post more of him too.

My oldest has it all figured out. He informed his friend, "Next year we won't have to wait in line for so long. We will be at the first of the line because my Grandpa is Santa's helper and he will tell Santa what we want." (My Dad has been Santa's helper since I was a little girl. And he just bought a new Santa outfit this year so we are thrilled!)

I received the Shepherd and Stable Animals for my nativity. I just love this set even if everyone else may have it. I have been so excited each year to get a new piece. I can't wait until next year!!!
