A Little More "Real" Snow


This one actually required the tractor.
As Christopher could tell you, there's nothing like a face
full of snow when a gust of wind kicks that spray right back at you!

The End of the Window Project

To celebrate Thanksgiving, Bob decided to complete the window project today.  Since the finishing was all done, that just meant getting it nailed in place on the window.  First came the sill:






He used Matthew's services to hold the sill in place for measuring...












...then screwed it in place.





Looking better already!











The other three sides fit together like a picture frame with pocket-hole screws and were centered on the window.











With Matthew holding the frame in place, Bob nailed it in place.


Beautiful!  Now every window in our house opens as it should.  Yay!
Definitely worth the wait--beautiful job as always!

Baking with Kristin











Kristin exercised great patience and made rocky road fudge brownies with James.  He had a great time and only broke one egg when he dropped the egg carton.  Of course, licking the beaters is always a perk, but he also got some great lessons in following directions.










Eating them was even better!

Fun in the Snow




Good thing Helena is a strong little thing, because James isn't exactly the lightest cargo to be pulling.  It's easy to tell that once they got to a slight incline.  They had a blast playing in the snow, and stayed outside till it was almost dark.

Our Crafty Girl


So, Helena is definitely addicted to crafting.
The Eiffel Tower may have appeared when bookwork
was supposed to be happening, but I'm sure that 
won't happen again.  Hmmmm.

First Real Snow


I know it sounds silly, but we don't consider it to have really snowed until we have to move it.  Our patio seating got a nice blanket and we fired up the tractor for the driveway, so that makes this a real snow:)

Playtime with Kristin


Kristin, Helena, and James enjoyed an afternoon 
game of Forbidden Island.
