I’m back and I am living in a winter wonderland. Predictions this year were for continued drought. But last weekend we had the most snow in a single storm for over 2 years. Flurries are expected today and another larger storm next weekend.
It’s easy to get in the Christmas mood when your backyard looks like this. Hard to believe at the end of the year we will have lived in this wonderful place for a year. Proeun was at the barn as it was snowing and said it looked like Narnia out there.
I sadly have not been able to enjoy the outdoors yet–still healing up from an early Christmas present, the birth of our 5th child and 2nd son–Pray Grant.
Daddy is very happy with the new addition.
As is big brother Two who asks first thing every morning to hold him. I snapped this picture last night, I hope they will remain close and this picture will be one they cherish when they get older.
I am on strict orders to rest for 40 days. Luckily it is the elving season and I can knit while reclining and nursing. It is so fun to see piles of yarn turn into projects and gifts. Also have some sewing projects lined up for in a week or so when I can move around the house more. More on finished projects after the holidays.
Proeun and the children set up the Christmas tree this weekend. We didn’t even set up a tree last year because we were busy packing and moving. There is a local nursery were you can “pick your own tree.” We wanted to do that this year, but it can always wait till next year. I especially love the star on top. We haven’t had a topper yet and always planned to get one after the holidays when those things are cheaper but never did. So Proeun planned and made a star for the top. I love that man!
