finally, some snow to lay around in

This dog has been waiting ALL winter for real snow! 

This is the $4500 pup that had ACL surgery number two in October. He was so happy to be out in the snow that I could not resist taking him for a run through the yard. I kept him on the leash because he's still not ready for an all out run, but he made the most of every single lap we did.

When he finished running around like a maniac, he just laid down in the driveway enjoying the snowfall. Worth every dime of the vet bill.

Another "goodbye"

This week my middle daughter had the basketball game where the Seniors are recognized. This has been an amazing season as we have watched her spend every week with girls she has become very close friends with over the years - some of those friendships were instant, others they worked really hard to make happen. I will miss this season very much.

great read

My oldest got the book "Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore" for Christmas, and I was looking for something to read. It turned out to be a cover-to-cover-without-a-break book! Magical, curious, deep, and plausible.
