Back to a Normal Life

My oldest daughter got married this past Saturday, Feb.23, 2008. It has been a whirlwind the past 3 months planning the whole thing. The day turned out to be a beautiful sunny day without any bad winter weather like we have had this year. Thank goodness! Now that the wedding is over, I can get back to crafting. Here is a pic of the 2 of them cutting the cake.

Winter Wonderland

Woke up today to more snow. So far about 5 inches and still coming down. Here is a black squirrel trying to find some breakfast among all the snow. Then later in the day looked out and saw a dove resting in the snow.
