A little working family on a little hobby farm.

Today is the fourth full snow day this year. The boys are giddy with their love of this winter!
It warmer this time than our last blast, which means we can be out more today, and that the latest addition to the farm (as of yesterday) has a better chance of surviving her first few days. Look at the inky black eye!

A trip to the doctor today got Nolan thinking about his brain. Then he picked up a pen and drew us this lovely diagram of how his brain allocates thoughts throughout the day.
Nolan-isms!

Some people say a pool in Oregon is only good for two months each year.
Well, (this year) they are very, very WRONG

One more stop on the Christmas train... Great-Grandma hosted the Hensons Monday night, which gave all of us Christmas day with our families. It's getting harder for Grandma to make all the "fixings" for dinner, so we each brought something this year, which worked really well.
Merry Christmas to all and to all... see you in the new year!

Merry Christmas


Christmas came a little early in our house this year, when Poppy and Nonna drove to Dallas in the wee hours to pick up Great-Grandma and have her at our house before the boys woke up. The result was a nice hour of chatting and coffee for the adults before little footsteps brought the excitement of the day to reality. Tablets, toys and a lot of love later we were all settled in for what proved to be a perfect day.
 
  
 

(See? Miracles do happen!!)

All the gifts and our "Christmas Eve Boxes" appeared under the tree this morning. After Christmas Eve service, the boys opened their standard collection of snacks and PJs before settling in for a movie.
Ready or not, here it comes!

The weather didn't stop (at least most of) us from celebrating Christmas together with the Green family. These kids don't look quite as young as the first year we gathered at our house!
The gathering of 30+ people also marked our 17th anniversary, which is celebrated by sending the kids to Poppy and Nonna's Friday night and enjoying some leisurely time on Third Street Saturday morning.

Another snow day... or "Ice Day" really, since the entire area is covered in a half-inch of slippery ice.
I can't imagine trying to be a teacher tomorrow!
