25°F today, a little windy, but for Angela, brutally cold.
Christmas at the Morey’s.
Finally, some winter weather.
This was the first concept. The scale of things didn’t work out the way I wanted and the dogs were a nightmare to get sitting by the fire.
I’ve got another idea in the works – fingers crossed.
The Christmas card remains a work in progress… While it may turn into a New Years card, I though I’d share one that didn’t make the cut.
Much to be thankful for today… Grandparents that drive half way across the state for Isabel’s piano recital. A piano teacher who takes great pride in her students, and a smart kid who makes learning piano look easy.
and great job Isabel ~ ribbon/certificate was for earning top honors on the Minnesota Music Teachers Assoc. piano exam.
Isabel passed her piano exam last weekend with “high distinction”, scoring 90/99. In addition to sight-reading and scales, she prepared three pieces to play, one of which was “The Prowling Pussy Cat”.
Great job Isabel!
I’ve taken this photo before, but when the girls brought home a Chihuahua for a weekend of dog sitting, I felt a re-run was in order. For safety’s sake, I photoshopped in the wee one as we worried Samson might step on “Pepper” 😐
Grace has lived on smoothies, apple sauce and acetaminophen since her brace installation. Ouch!
Isabel’s new piano piece, the “Prowling Pussy Cat”, arrives just time for Halloween.
Trying to stay strong while her back recovers from minor gymnastics injury.
Peripheral vision is exceeding good at identifying movement. Which becomes exceeding annoying when you keep thinking someone’s at the door.
Good food, excellent service and cute servers.
We kicked off MEA weekend just north of Two Harbors by climbing Silver Cliff. Isabel’s friend Claire turned out to be the billy-goat of the bunch, but everyone seemed to enjoy being out. Weather was largely cooperative, but a few passing showers had the girls running for cover. Grace gets photo credits for the two climbing photos 🙂
ps. Isabel was at a friend’s house.
Homecoming week continues with movie character day.
Thanks to Luke, Han and Chewie, Angela escaped the Imperial Army just in time for Sci-fi day and East High School’s homecoming week.
A long paddle, and soggy nights made for adventure, but perfect days, stunning scenery and the near absence of bugs made for lots of BWCA fun.
It been just a week, but Angela’s snuggling right in.
