Continuing our tradition, we watched President Biden’s Inauguration today.
We lost electricity for 69 hours over the first week of January. We do not have a generator, but we do have a gas stove and a fireplace. That is a lot more than many people have.
While we sometimes were a little chilly, we spent our time enjoying family and playing. It was a great weekend!
We lost electricity Friday afternoon and it finally came back Monday while we ate lunch. It sounds like it should have been a horrible weekend, but we really enjoyed most of it. Thankful for a family who enjoys roughing it together.
So very thankful for my family. (Thanks Dad for taking this picture!)
Catching up on some needed sleep.
What a lovely, cold snowy Christmas day.
We have enjoyed making ginger bread houses before, but this is the first time in a long time we created them from scratch. We split up in teams; Andrea and Megan made one house, Audrey and Adrian worked together on another and Allan and I designed one. Andrea baked the gingerbread last night and each team “glued” them together to sit overnight. This morning we spent a few hours decorating our houses.
We had so much fun, that we decided to make this a yearly tradition. Except next year we plan to draw names for teams. All of the houses turned out wonderfully and we will enjoy them a few days before “maybe” eating them.
Which of these houses is your favorite?
Santa knew he should not sit down, but he thought “just one minute will not hurt”…
Borrowed Santa’s suit this year and had some fun experimenting with new Christmas photographs.
Looking forward to celebrating the real meaning of Christmas, the virgin birth of Jesus Christ. Happy Christmas!
