2013 Reflections

Keeping tradition here...2013 in review.

Here's 2012.
Here's 2011.

This year has been marvelous, settling into this 1880s farmhouse and bringing the farm back to life.  Last year at this time, I was still unpacking.  We're much more settled now, enjoying life with our two little ones.

Frosty. And family time.

I was inside doing something that seemed pressing, my husband looking after the littles.  And then I looked out the window and saw them having fun.  I have no idea what seemed pressing at the moment, but whatever it was was soon abandoned.  I just *had* to join them.

 Nothing cuter than peek-a-boo around a snowman.


See, I totally was there.
 With the love of my life.
 Corrected.  Loves.

 And  I somehow convinced them to cooperate for a little self timer action.  Thankful for this little family.

 And the dance party that comes along with fun times.  Thankful indeed.
