Fond Memories

On days when Mom made homemade bread, she would save some of the dough for fresh scones.  While I don't make homemade bread, I do make dough for scones.  Looks good, huh?
I'm grateful for the memories...

Winter has arrived. October 6th, 2011

It's been snowing here since about 9:30, and now it's sticking to the roads, the grass, the trees, the rooftops, etc.  My sons are excited cuz that means snow in the mountains. 
About 11:00 this morning, Tyler and I heard a very loud crash.  We knew it was a tree, but couldn't see which one. Tyler found it, in the backyard of our neighbors house.  It's a HUGE tree, and one very big branch of it fell from the weight of the snow, and took out our fence...what a start to winter, huh?

the simple things

Jayleigh went outside to learn how to jumprope, after a few minutes she comes running in and gives me this little flower.  She found it and wanted me to have it.  A quick kiss and she was off. 
Wow, the simple things are pretty awesome.
