A quiet month with lots and lots of snow provided hours of outdoor fun.
A ski trip for five of us. Two were off with friends so only three of us are in this through-the- window photo. This was the first time skiing for Beans.
Tubing fun with friends.
And lots more snow. I remember thinking the snow days would never end!
The Engineer and I did get a break from the snow though when I was able to accompany him on a business trip to New Orleans, Louisiana. I think it's my third, or maybe even fourth time accompanying him there, and it never gets old. It contains such interesting history, architecture, art, and people! Oh, and the food it great too!
The view from our hotel room window.
A day that was warm enough for a fire,
and to hang wash on the line,
despite the fact that snow could still be found (and made into snowmen) in the shadowy places.
Heading out to a masquerade.
Yuck! More snow!
First piano recitals for two girls.
Prom. (These two are actually dating now.)
One very sick black lab and his concerned fur brother.
Chaperoning a grade 8 class trip.
A grade school graduation.
A high school graduation.
H and Bub, sharing their faith journey while our pastor looks on.
A first cottage vacation up north. What a relaxing week!!
Dropping our first born off for his first year of university.
Another one off to high school.
All the grade schoolers are in full time! Woo hoo!
Back to the university for the Investiture service for Bub's dorm.
Thanksgiving weekend. A time for family portraits, and a first time home for Bub.
A Sunday afternoon walk in our back bush on one of the most glorious autumns that I can recall.
We've never done Halloween, but that doesn't stop my high schoolers from dressing up when given the opportunity. Peach is Ariel from the Little Mermaid and Beans is a flapper.
A chilly family leaf clean up day yielded lots of fun despite the cold.
The death of the 21.5 year old family car.
A mid November snowfall lead to some winter fun -- for the pug at least.
And suddenly it was Christmas Day!
The six girls playing restaurant in the basement. *Sigh!* What else is there to do when you have no snow!?
Wishing you all a great 2015!! God bless!
