Random look at life from our house.
has been a month of snow, snow, and more snow. Not a great amount but
enough here and there to give an almost constant ground cover - which is
rare in our area.
ice storm added beauty but cut our power for a couple hours. Since our
marriage, I never remember losing our power, but this month we were out
twice for a few hours each time. The children thought it was great fun and were
disappointed when it came back on. They wanted to practice being pioneers and
cook our food in the fireplace.
The children have loved this winter and the snow.
(most of the time) I have enjoyed the excuse to just stay home with my children. Though
I will admit that the last week has been rough. One of those times that
I'd be glad to hand in my resignation, but I don't know anyone who
wants my job. So I'm forced to stay. And wait for spring.
And there are lots of perks to this job.
Maybe I just need to take some time to count blessings.
Like this little one who continues to give us lots of enjoyment.
Saturday mornings with snow falling, fire crackling, and Daddy and baby studying for a sermon.
Evenings spent creating masterpieces. Here we tried our hand at copying Van Gogh's sunflowers.
Painting our own summer!
Our little girlie continues to sleep, eat, and grow.
any of you are looking for a great swaddle blanket - I'm loving this
one called the Miracle Blanket. I saw a friend's last summer and loved
it. It is rather high price for a piece of cloth but I found two for a
great discount on ebay. And they have been so worth it! She has been
sleeping so well. To use, first you put the baby's feet in the pocket.
Then fold in the one wing to hold down their arm.
Then fold in the second side.
Fold in the outer wing.
A few years behind...but I finally joined Pinterest with the goal of finding order in all my bookmarked sites. If you want to check out what I'm pinning, follow me here.
And speaking of blessings...we were able to visit with a missionary that works with a leprosy mission. How I take for granted health and home when so many people in the world have lost not only their health but also their families. The above video will show you some of the amazing people that are showing God's love to these forgotten people.

Yes, even in the midst of cabin fever and the February blues...I am blessed.
