In December, my husband was pulling snow off the garage with a snow rake and his prescription glasses fell out of his pocket and into the 4 foot high snow pile.

A couple weeks ago as the temperatures rose, Sam was out playing. He saw something shiny on the ground.
Mom, look what I found! Amazing! They were in perfect shape, without a scratch on them.


The wind is blowing and we were cold, but the waves were gorgeous!
I have pink eye so I'm wearing glasses.
There were actually quite a few people on the beach. This just makes it look deserted.
Sam was the first one to brave the frigid water and run in.

We played in the sand a lot too.

Finally, Sam convinced Andrew to run in the waves too.

I love seeing the two of them play together.

Richard finally got his feet wet.

The water was COLD!
I love this picture.

Happy beach day! We are going back this summer! A lot!

 Andrew got to see some REALLY big pine trees come down with a bucket truck.
 This is what happens after I get out of bed and the dog climbs in.
 Andrew got ahold of my camera....
Makes me smile.

In my craft basket:
When I put this on the table it was all crooked. I am pulling it all apart and starting again.

We are about 1/2 done painting the kitchen. The old paint looks pink next to the white.
Bible verse:
Romans 12:1-2
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
