Happy New Year!

We've had a busy holiday season so far. In fact, we've been so busy that we haven't even gotten around to sending our Christmas cards yet! This past weekend, we went to Indianapolis, watched Despereaux, took Zachary and Lauren to Toys 'r Us so they could spend some Christmas money, went to Oliver Winery, and watched an IU basketball game in Bloomington. Pictures will be coming soon, hopefully (right after those Christmas cards put themselves in the mail). :-) Have a safe and happy New Year!!

A house fit for a gingerbread family

As temperatures dipped to -2 yesterday, we stayed inside our toasty home and worked on this gingerbread house. Zachary and Lauren have always liked reading Gingerbread Baby, by Jan Brett. The artwork is quite impressive! We were excited to find the sequel, Gingerbread Friends, at Barnes & Noble recently. We think the gingerbread baby would enjoy this dwelling!

Oh, the Weather Outside is Frightful

The weather was just fine last night, but this was our view this morning! Zachary's Christmas vacation was extended by a day. It looks like they'll be having their school Christmas party in January. Even Lauren's preschool/daycare closed, which is a rarity! We're hoping our poor little tree doesn't snap with the weight of the ice. It has bent dramatically since this picture was taken. Stay warm, everyone!
