SNOW!! (and some other photos)

As you've probably heard, we got hit with LOTS of snow last week. Below are some pics of the kiddos (and chickens!) playing in the snow:

Quote of the week...

So, many of you know that we have recently had a foster child placed with us - his name is Ryan, he is 19 months old and he is, for the most part, delightful! Sharing toys (and attention), however, has not been easy for Lucia. We are all adjusting, but it's going to take a little while! Here is our favorite quote thus far:

Lucia (talking to herself): "I'm just busy playing with everything in the whole house... but sometimes I have to share with Ryan."

Halloween Photo

Hi all,

I think Melissa has some more Halloween pics on her phone, but for now, this one from Lucia's Uncle Evan is all I have with me at work:

Yes, that is the same costume from last year, but it was so cute, we couldn't resist putting her in it again this year!

Melissa's new phone has a camera AND internet access. So I get occasional real-time updates and photos from her adventures with Lucia. Here are a few recent pictures:
