We are officially buried here in Rhode Island. We had a large storm on Friday night that dropped about 8-10 inches of snow. I was working the night shift at the hospital and most of the staff arrived by 3pm even tho' our shift didn't start until 7pm. How happy was I to drive in the snow? But the snow is beautiful. We had another storm today and piled another 6 inches on top of what we had. The kids are loving it. A snowman is being engineered in the back yard as we speak. I thought I would post some pictures of our yard. Homeschool is officially out for the week. My husband is on vacation for two weeks (yay!) and it will give us an opportunity to reconnect and spend some family time together.
Zoom in -the sign says..."Learning Begins at Home."
These were a summer project that I did with the kids. We painted birdhouses to surround our garden. Aren't they pretty in the snow?
More heavy pine tree boughs.
Tae and Morgan during rehearsal at church. They are both angels in the Christmas pageant on Christmas Eve. Last year, Tae used the candle as a light saber on the baby Jesus and threw his gold halo on the floor. Rehearsal was a lot of fun today. We are doing the Nativity story as are many other churches.
Candle facination. It's Tae's job to turn all the Christmas lights on in the house. Yes, I do let my kids play with electricity.
Our celebration of lights at Church. The kids listened to how a girl named Lucy and her friends celebrated the holidays and winter months. There was a St. Lucia wreath, a Menorah, a yule log, our ever present rainbow chalice, an advent wreath and a few other items.
