It snowed a bit yesterday - big, beautiful flakes. This morning everything was a winter wonderland - and quite treacherous on the streets and parking lots. I loved the look of the sun coming up on this frosty, 20-degree morning:
The moon was gorgeous last night between the trees. I wish I could have captured that. But I went to the patio right after I shot the sunrise and caught the moon heading down to the mountains in the west. Can you spot it hiding among the trees in the first picture?
The big girls went with Grandpa DC over to visit Great Grandma on a recent Sunday afternoon. Great Aunt G is the caretaker for Great Grandma - and is a "great" great-auntie. She had given them a huge bag of jewelry that she had cleaned out of her stash. They were thrilled! And they had a great afternoon with her - she's so creative.
BTW, Grandpa DC had taken them to W*l-Mart and let them each pick out a new outfit -
So this morning I tried out a new breakfast food on the girlies - oatmeal/banana/pears, I think. Do you think they liked it??
They were much happier with their graham crackers with peanut butter.
As a surprise for Kristen for the twins' birthday, I took them to a photographer who loves working with twins. It was the hardest thing I've done in a long time to narrow down 100-plus poses to an affordable package.
The photographer has a web site where she posts some of her favorite pictures. Check it out here. See if you can find them - there are several shots of them.
Final note - from the mouths of babes! The girls went to celebrate my dad's birthday the other day. Care Bear asked, "Grandpa, who did you like - Obama or McCain?" Dad told her that he really liked McCain. Care Bear said, "I did too, but I hope Obama does well." Wow.
