Baby Shower

Ooooh! What could be better than a book themed baby shower. Friends gathered { some from the new mom's book club}, literary quotes a-plenty artistically chalked on blackboards, vintage books stacked and spread about for decor and centerpieces, yummy brunch fare, and thoughtful gifts, to bless the new mom and her baby, soon to be born. {Any day in fact.}

The Garden in Winter

With the low light of Winter, it would seem my camera and I have been hibernating.
 {I could pretend this snow storm was just last week but instead I'll admit it was at least a month ago.}
I do so love the way our garden is transformed by a covering of snow so 'better late than never'.


The children, of course, were thrilled! Pure magic, first time in their young lives to see such a sight!

Soon I'll be in the mood for some Spring posts.

Being an American is something we tend to take for granted.  So celebrating Olives accomplishment was a good reminder. We forget that people have to want it bad enough to work for it by studying hard. They probably end up knowing more than those of us who have always been Americans! John and I got to go to Portland to see her swearing in then later in the week we had a party to celebrate.

Field Trip

::Getting out of the house/Field trip to someplace new and interesting.
:: This mill is now a State park. It is in working order and is started up for visitors.
:: The girls did great. This is an amazing place, but I think the main attraction was the flock of chickens and getting to feed them! 
::Pretty sure that is the part that Rilla will remember the longest.
::(Pretty sure Shannon had to mask her fear of 'fowl'!)
