4x5 holder case

My mom made holders for my film holders. I drew up a "plan" and she made these awesome things to keep the dust away! Each one holds five, the perfect amount.

the birds

I wish I'd made a video of this. I've never seen so huge and so loud a group of crows.

It started snowing Saturday night and didn't stop until Sunday afternoon. This is the scene we woke up to... It's nice to be on the inside looking out.

The inside of the front door before we even went outside. Old house, big cracks for snow to blow into.

Windy morning

Add VideoThe sky changed dramatically in just two minutes this morning. (I've sped it up to one minute.) The wind is still howling but it's also unseasonably warm. What a day!

Jon and Scott and I went for a hike nearby the day after Early Thanksgiving. It was such a beautiful day and made me think of Wachusett Dam hikes when I was a kid.

If you were really quiet you could hear all of these wonderful sounds...

Simcha and I saw an amazing wood inlaid bench at an antique store. We opened it up to find this note.

This time of year is crazy in my family. Dad starts it with his birthday at the end of October. Then Celine, Vince, and Paloma all have the same birthday. Simcha is just 4 days later. Here are two of the birthday girls. Vince is in Mexico City, we missed him!



Paloma is 6. This is her "Supergirl" cake. Celine and I had a little too much fun making it. It's actually a "Disaster Cake" in our minds.

The silly one and I.

Simcha, bored and almost 16.
