Winter Wonderland

I am not a big fan of cold weather or snow, especially when it comes to winter clothing.  Gloves, coats, hats, snow boots, etc. make everyday tasks more difficult than they already are.  However, I must admit the snow creates a beautiful winter wonderland.  Yesterday and today I tried to capture just a little bit of the beauty.  Photos hardly do it justice.

A Morning in Mostly Pictures

This blog is often neglected as I try and keep up with a very active four year old, adoption paperwork, and keeping my house from being in shambles.  However, I am not entirely ready to part with this blog since it has been the story of our lives for the past 8 years. 

Saturday, Daniel was gone to a conference and E and I were home trying to keep ourselves busy.  I decided to take pictures throughout the morning to  document our day.
