Boy of the Week

So many pictures of this kid this week, perhaps because all the other members of the family are sick of having their pictures taken? (How am I ever to get a Christmas card picture out of these people?!)

Tree Trimming

Earlier than usual this year--not sure what got into us!

Three what? I wasn't paying attention.

Yesterday, on Thanksgiving Day, we all wrote on a banner things for which we're thankful. It's an eclectic hodge-podge, and it reflects well who we are.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We've had such a nice day, just us--lots of laughing and being silly and just enjoying one another (and eating, of course).

Licensed to Drive

It has been a long journey--but she got her license today. I'm so proud of her for persevering in a hard thing.

Morning View

I took pictures this morning while it was foggy and then a few after the fog had lifted. It was hard to pick a favorite, but I went with this one because I like the light and the notion that that path leads somewhere interesting, not just to a swamp.

Afternoon light coming through the trees in our yard.

Here I am, first thing in the morning: no shower, no coffee, no nuthin'. Am I brave to post this, or what?!

Picture hunting this afternoon took me to a pond full of Canada geese (and one swan).

Through her new glasses.

Grackles, in the woods behind our house. Big flock! My mother always hated grackles, but I rather like them.

Nina's Sunset

OK, it wasn't really just Nina's sunset, but I wasn't paying attention out the window, and when Nina saw this out her window she had the thoughtfulness to IM me so I could take a picture. Now, that's a friend!
