Winter time, a wonderful season of life!!! We have a favorite quote from Henty's Captain Baileys Heir, that describes what many in our family feel during the cold months of December, January, and February.
"... The sky is blue, and the sun is shining brightly; the wind is fresh and keen; it is just the day when people well-clad, well-fed and in strong health, fell their blood dancing more freely than usual though their veins, and experience an unusual exhilaration of spirits..."
|During the Christmas holidays we were able to finally get a family picture(minus Ben, Emily and Cedric). Many thanks to Hannah M. for the photo for us!|
|Esther reading to her little nephew. Hard to believe that this young lady has grown up so quickly and is now an accomplished reader.|
|Yay! Cedric must be warmed up enough to us, for him to raise up his arms like this to Grandma:)|
|The beautiful couple!! Hannah and Sean Mustian! What a joy it was to see this couple joined together in marriage.|
"I am the good shepherd, the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep." Being close to Valentines Day, the theme of the program was the Love of God.
|President's Day found the majority of the family minus me,(the joys of a new job:) at Bemis Hill, a local sledding hill.|
|Matthew and Rachel...the long trek up the hill is part of the best part of the experience...if you are there to lose weight that is:)|
|Marie and Jenna J. Part of the fun of Bemis Hill is gathering with friends and family!|
|Dad, Mom and Esther...(Esther doesn't look too sure about going down:)|
Some of the sledding crew, eating the best food you can have at Bemis hill, hot dogs cooked over an open fire(plus an appetite sharpened by the fresh air and all that exercise!)
|Gotta love that smile!|
|JoAnna deep in thought!|
Until the next time I remain yours truly, Elizabeth Mitton
