Winter. White. Wild.

Winter has arrived. To my despair and everyone else's happiness. Yes I do try to be content in what ever "state" I am as Paul says in Phil. 4:11, but I sure do envy my little brother right now! =)

So anyways...just so you know...since I am the blogger around here, you will most of the time only be getting one side of the story, though I will be posting pictures of the others in their "glory". Happy looking. ~Grace


The end of Autumn...go to sleep earth.

The garden is all tucked in with leaves, ashes and straw and the heavens laid out the winter comforters and all are a-slumbering.


Down comes the snow.

Josiah took the last two pictures.

A heavy snowfall came down while Faith and I were at the farm the other morning.

Dad constructed this "feathery" friend last night in honor of our chickens.

It is hard to keep Josiah indoors now adays and after dinner last night I mustered up enough spunk to go out there and do some sledding with him.

Faith enjoying herself. =)

Yes folks, even though I don't really care for the freezing/snowy months of the year...I try to make the most of it and take great pleasure in trying not to kill myself on the snowboard! (several jaws drop and have to be screwed back on at the thought of this scaredy-cat/shy girl doing such a thing!) I love it!! Last night I had a blast, though the first three tries ended up in slides (it might help if I tried it in the day time next time) but after Josiah fixed a small imperfection on the hill, I was able to make a perfect ride. =) Next up : building a big bump and adding some tricks to the flight!


In everything give thanks;

for this is the will of God

in Christ Jesus for you.

1 Thessalonians 5:18

May God bless you all with a wonderful day of Thanksgiving tomorrow!
