52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations,the extraordinary and mundane --
whatever is unique to the week.
Wow, I skipped a few weeks. I don't think I'll try this little project again next year. I overestimated the exciting activity that goes on in my house. Or possibly I just didn't want to bore you to death. Or maybe I just didn't pick up my camera as much as I hoped.
Anyway, last one before Christmas. Hopefully I'll have a few more during Christmas week before the end of the year. Can you believe that? The end of the year just around the corner.
Back in mid-fall, Noah and Faith were goofing in the back yard. Faith pretended all day to be a Native American. I love this picture because even the dog looks goofy.
Doug spent one Saturday cutting down a few trees (he also felled the fence, not pictured). I love how it looks with all the moss that had grown on the shady side of the tree.
A log ring for the swing set, at Faith's request.
The two felled trees.
Two new chairs for the family room. I went shopping with the intent to buy black or brown fabric -- never red, and never leather. But I love them. We all do. What possessed me?
Faith doing her reading from one.
Twenty six years on November 16, and a dozen pretty reds.
The three Thanksgiving Day tables -- the best part.
Doug putting up the Christmas lights -- the boys promised they would do it but Doug wouldn't let them up on the ladder. When he got his big ladder out he noticed that the cushions for the ends (whatever those things are called) were missing. Hmmm. Anyway, here's a close up so you can see how he improvised:
Looks like a real fireman's ladder!
(no, he's not a real fireman)
A treat for the church office on St. Nicholas day. The ladies at the church office are some of the most appreciative people.
My own St. Nicholas tea -- Twining Christmas tea and Speculatius cookies.
