Project 365: Week 3

It snowed!!

Monday, January 10, 2011

Gabe has come a long way since last year when he got stuck on the snowy slope in our front yard, panicked, and decided to stay inside throughout the snow-playing time. Now he's an old pro. And, like a good big brother, he's confident enough to help those younger than himself.

The Rackleys left for a new life in Uganda today.

One must needs go up and down the escalator a time or two with friends when one has a chance.

The hardest part, by far, was seeing the big brother and big sister goodbyes. The 20-year-old twins stayed behind.

Such precious friends. (I shed a lot of tears today.)

We covered them with lots of prayer.

And will continue to do so...

The Christmas Leftovers

Anybody else have this problem? Everything's all nicely packed up and put away in the attic, and now there's this little collection of thingies. A couple ornaments were stuck in the verrry dead tree and found once outside on the curb. (Whew!) There were also several tragedies this year. Heartbreaking ones, unfortunately. (See the tricycle ornament box? That's all that's left of that ornament. The bad thing is it was Gabe's for THIS year! It never even made it onto the tree.) So I guess I'll be scouring the auctions on eBay all year for replacements. But one bright spot: I scored a Prep and Landing ornament at Hallmark marked down to $4.00 from $15.00! Yessssssssss!

Noah made a board game during school today. It was in his Anti-Coloring Book.

Friday, January 14. 2011

We had dinner with new friends tonight. Noah played soccer with their oldest. And Saylor takes ballet with their middle child. I couldn't get a good picture, because there were too many busy bodies in the shot. Oh, well.

Saylor had a jewelry-making birthday party to attend this morning. She was excited ALL week about it.

Well, January's flying by like all the rest of the months in my life. I'm grateful to have a photo record of my days. This post is linked at Sara's Project 365. 


  1. Love your snow pictures, especially that first one!

    We don't have a real tree but sometimes as we're taking ours apart we find ornaments buried inside too. Mostly the ball ones though, cuz' we hang our cute ones on the outside. Glad you didn't lose any! That elf one, is that the Disney movie coming out next year at Christmas time?

  2. I was praying for you last week as you said goodbye. did they make it ok? Have you heard from them?

  3. Oh man... Goodbye's make me cry anyways & that young mans face... Where's my Kleenex?

  4. I miss the snow to take snow pictures! so much fun! And how sad to say good bye but remembering how sweet it will be to say hello in the future. Fun bday jewelry party...makes me wish I had a girl.

  5. Love the pics of the kids in the snow - I wonder if I ever enjoyed it as much?

    So sorry - and glad - you had to say goodbye to your friends. I only did the mission thing for a year and a half, but it was one of the best experiences of my life. This will be great for them.

  6. What a beautiful family of redheads. May God Bless them on their journey.

  7. We love you guys so much! Your friendship is amazing! Thank you so much!! We love you so much <3
    Y'all are amazing!!
    Love you
    Give everyone a hug for me :)

  8. where do i begin?? those goodbye pix are simply heartbreaking. *sigh* wishing everyone peace and comfort!

    and, yes, we also have a lil' pile of Christmas goodies that need to work themselves in attic boxes. ugh.

    and the snow? how fun! my girls would love that!
