As in most of the rest of the country, winter in our neck of Illinois has been incredibly cold and snowy. I took this picture through the window of our front door because I particularly liked the light. It was probably something like -8 at the time, so there was no way I was going outside to do it! (We have more snow now!)
Hannah celebrated her birthday on the 4th. As I expected, she just wanted a quiet celebration at home. So I made some of her favorites~ corned beef and blueberry pie~ and she opened her presents: nine yards of Kona cotton for new curtains for her room and more crates to serve as bookshelves. Lizzie and family sent her a book about the invention and history of paper . . . ironically in the Kindle edition!
|Fabric makes this girl happy!|
|Using candles in a pie is not very practical, so Hannah just held them while Dave and I sang.|
