Our Girls ...

Our girls are always ready for a close-up.

Art History Class

Art History class today ~ Griffin made a name sculptor inspired by the artist Frank Stella. He designed each letter with paper and markers, cut them out and then placed them on the page to spell his name in an artistic way. The detail is wonderful! I'm loving that dude he drew hanging off the letter N.

New Christmas Ornaments

When we were at Hobby Lobby the other day Griffin came back with these two Christmas ornaments in his cart. I think he knows his mama very well.

Christmas Decorating!

A combination of a delicious dinner, first fire of the season, Christmas tree decorating, reminiscing about beloved ornaments, and 'chocolate thing' for dessert, made for a terrific evening.

Who Got In The Paint?

Somebody got into Daddy's paint. Jazzy said it's not him.

Christmas Stuff!

I mentioned to Griffin, and his friend Christian, I wanted to get the Christmas stuff down from the attic. Imagine my surprise when I walked upstairs to get started, and I walked into this! They took it upon themselves to get everything down all by themselves! Such awesome young men!!

The Hurricane That Took Down THE Tree.

Hurricane Irma was an unpleasant visitor here in September. She caused quite a bit of damage when she took this tree down and landed it on my in-laws home. After several dump truck loads of tree were taken away, this is all that's left of the tree that came down and caused so much damage. You know what? I love this picture. What I see here, is the strength and grace that embodies my mother-in-law. It was a difficult time - and they are still working on repairs, she and Tony handled this situation so well together. Today, I was reminded we have a family with many different branches in our family tree and I am grateful for every single one of them.
