Following our winter hiking excursion we headed to a hotel as a "winter get-away." We watched silly cable tv shows, played games, swam in the pool, cozied up to the fireplace, enjoyed the jacuzzi, and relaxed the day away. Nice way to spend a February day off of school.

|Just like a spa: Nathan drying Lyd's hair after bath while she plays k'nex.|
|The boys asked if they could read on our bed. Apparently they meant IN our bed.|

I haven't been great about blogging for the last, oh six months or so. There isn't a great big reason it's just that life is busy and we've been enjoying it. When I do blog I usually blog about events, holidays, and activities. Today when I was going through months of pictures I found some that just made me smile. There is nothing "special" about these pictures, they're ordinary. That's why I chose to include them. They're the moments that happen every day and the moments I wish I could freeze in time and return to over and over. Sure the big days in our life are special but sometimes it's the little moments. The moment for an extra long bedtime hug, the chapter that had to be finished before bed since the mystery was about to be solved, the silly things my kids make & do, these are the moments that show we care, we live, and we love.

Back when I was working on our Nutcracker I had done some shopping at the Habitat for Humanity Restore looking for certain pieces and/or general inspiration. One day one of the volunteers asked if I'd like to participate in their community art event. The plan was for local artists to take old windows and create some kind of art to be auctioned off to support Habitat for Humanity. I said I'd help with one window, couldn't decided which old battered window I liked best, and ended up taking home two. After some consideration and some work this is what I came up with for my two windows. The pieces were auctioned off in February for $150 each.
