This afternoon I snapped a few outdoor photos:
The sheep on the right is completely covered and baby Jesus has almost disappeared under the snow as well...
Love the trees in our backyard - always so pretty
St. Francis is getting buried on our deck.
It was much too cold and windy for Claire to go outside, but we did let her try out a hat inside:
She is such a big cheese!
Yesterday was my *gulp* 29th birthday and Patrick & I celebrated by going to the 10:30 am showing of Saving Mr. Banks. Yes, we are that old married couple that goes to the movies before noon. The theater was more crowded than I expected although I was correct in my predicition that we were the youngest ones there. The movie was a sweet story and appreciated by this lover of Mary Poppins.
Patrick took me to Hobby Lobby and purchased this for our fireplace mantel next Christmas:
I've been wanting a framed nativity print for several years now and at 80% off - this holy family picture was too beautiful to pass up. I was immediately drawn to this particular piece because the way baby Jesus is stretching reminded me of Claire when she was born.
Well, I've got a screaming baby who is ready to splash in a warm bathtub. Please keep your fingers crossed that I don't have to brave the elements tomorrow!
