A Bit Of Everthing

Saturday, January 23, 2010


We had snow last night - probably an inch or two. And it actually snowed quite a bit more this morning!
And it has now melted. But the mountains are still covered with it, which made for some fantastic pictures.

This is our view from the back porch.

This is the view from the boy's room - lovely, isn't it?


I just love our mountain views!

And a day or two ago, Courtney snapped this photo of a giant rainbow....that actually ends on our property! It looked like it did, anyway.

(Hmm - wonder if there's gold down there?)

Here's Willie, all curled up on the porch.....enjoying a cozy winter nap.


David happened to be out in Mesa's pen retrieving an empy chip bag that she was chewing on - it ended up making a cute pose!

A wet and muddy mule and a handsome big brother.

In other news........we are currently packing for our China trip! Yes, packing. I haven't packed a suitcase since I was eight years old! I've never traveled internationally before, so this is going to be a very new experience.

Remember the new pictures of Isaac we got a few days ago? Here's a few more - the little guy in the orange is Isaac. This one is half of his face.....but at least he's smiling!


There's our little guy!

Anyway, you wouldn't believe how excited I am to go. The past few days have been...well...passed with ....um, "little activity" (a.k.a. wasted) because I am too excited to really do much. Only seven more days - but what long days they'll be!

Seven more days of being without Isaac...

but

it's also seven more days of a particular freedom that I won't have for years to come. Like.....leaving candles un-attended throughout the house.

Or leaving a bottle of Advil on the counter. And temporarily leaving a pair of scissors on the floor. Or laying my violin loose on my bed between practice.

Those are things I definitely cannot do when Isaac comes! But it's a small price to pay, and I won't miss them, except for leaving candles unattended. I am such a candle person! However, I'm sure I can make the sacrifice. :)
