Let it Snow!

So I realized that for a person who likes taking photos, I’ve posted a very small percentage of the ones I like.  And that’s something I intend to fix. So interspersed with every-day type  photos […]

Driving in a Winter Wonderland

Got any ideas for safer commutes in scary weather? I need them. This winter’s been a bit too exciting around here. If I’m not mistaken, we’ve had at least one major storm per week since November. Given the fact that I have to drive down one mountain, around another, and across a long highway to get my kids to and from school every day, it can be a dangerous commute for us in the snow. And I’ve not been nearly as prepared as I should be. Sometimes I wish I could just sell the house and go get a condo close to the school. But in this last storm, not even that would have helped.

“Name Flakes”

My kids and their buddy were so pleased with this idea for a nifty paper snowflake last winter, I’m posting the how-to here. Give it a try, and send me your awesome results!

My kids and I made paper snowflakes this winter out of our names. They’re really quite beautiful. But my kids weren’t at all convinced that REAL snow looks like that. So I took this picture.
