Our little idol


Katie performing in "Greely Idol", a little singing competition in a small village near our even smaller village :) She didn't win, but she was amazing and I was so very proud.

(She sang 'Hey Soul Sister', loud and strong and without a hint of stage fright)

Celebrating Epiphany at mass this morning. Our church is tiny, but has beautiful vaulted ceilings, painted in aqua and gold.

52 Fridays - unplugged (Jan 6, 2012)

52 Fridays - unplugged (Jan 6, 2012)

I'm a scrapbooker and a story teller, but by always being behind the lens there is so much of the story that I'm not telling. So I've joined the one self portrait a week movement - to add some of myself into my albums and my family's story.

Aaaaand this first one is pretty raw. I have a new computer, and my photo editing software isn't installed yet. Where I would normally photoshop my ruddy complexion and get rid of the mole on my nose that makes me look like the wicked witch this one I'm forced to post unadulterated. Me, unplugged.

In the glow of endless brakelights

Freezing rain for our drive home tonight. Everyone was driving slowly and carefully, but oh so very very slowly, and it made the trip home exhausting.

Back to the grind...

Christmas holidays have officially ended for C and me (the kids still have one more week). Back to work we went, but the days are getting longer and the sun was rising during our drive in. (Blurry sunrise through my dirty car window)

So much for healthy eating...

Good thing it wasn't one of my New Years resolutions :) Out running errands, we stopped at McD's for lunch. Little J really wanted to try a Big Mac. We were surprised when he managed to finish all of it! (The fries, however, did not meet the same fate, but he's not the biggest fry fan anyway so I'm not too shocked that he didn't eat them)

My darling C, cutting our yummy New Years ham with his new electric knife.

Quilty and crafty finishes for 2011. Not as much as I would have liked to accomplish.
