Allan had a business trip to Chicago yesterday.Â Once the kids were in bed, I experimented with a new idea I found.Â I am not sure when or where I heard the term “Platinum”, but I liked how it looked.Â I did a little research on how to do platinum effect and discovered it looks really neat on scenery.Â Just for fun, I tried it on a people picture.Â The results were impressive!
The original picture can be found here.
I am thankful that we could take Saturday and play most of the day.Â We went to church and helped to rake the leaves there.Â After lunch, we went to Bonneyville Mill to see it decorated for Christmas.Â The kids got to see Santa Claus.Â I was laughing, because I knew who was playing Santa, but the kids could not figure out who he was.Â Santa did a great job calling the kids he knew by first and last name :)Â They finally figured out who Santa was, and we enjoyed a good laugh.
Then we visited the one room school house.Â I have never been there, so enjoyed exploring.Â I would love to see a class there for all ages, not just a select grade.Â I would sign the kids up quickly!
I am thankful that everyone was feeling better and that we had a beautiful day just to enjoy each other and relax.
We are also able to trust in God and rest in his promises! Psalm 117:2 says “For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LordÂ endures forever. Praise the Lord!”
