Christmas 2011

Betsy & Kyle are both fans of Angry Birds.  Kyle just could not understand why my phone didn't have birds on it.  What good is a phone without birds??
If there's a gathering of the Jones boys, there will be tree-climbing. . .

Betsy thought her Uncle Ike was pretty cool. 
Cartwheel lesson. . .
Love this glimpse of Betsy's smile  as Judson gives her some frisbee pointers. . .
The weather was perfect for some sidewalk chalk art. . .

It was a beautiful Christmas--everything I ever wanted a Christmas to be.

It was Merry

We're back home, safe and sound, getting used to the quiet and missing our babies already.  It was a wonderful Christmas visit.  The weather was beautiful, the food was good, and the family time priceless.

Looking forward to our little family
being all together this weekend!
We're blessed.

Tuesday Flowers

Are you tired of shopping yet?  I'm going for one more flower haul tomorrow and then I'm quitting!  Not necessarily finished, but still quitting :)

2011 Tree

Sometimes I think it's just too much trouble to get out all the Christmas stuff, especially if the kids aren't going to be here.  Then we stop by The Apple Barn, and Mark says, "do you want to get a tree?"  Then I find the angel tree topper that my mom made for me years ago.   I'm so glad we took the time.
Love these little boy angels.  Going through the ornaments that mama made just for us . . . my favorite is always the one that has my attention at the moment.

Monday Orchid

 V and I went shopping on Saturday and found this mini orchid at Greenview.  I dressed it up a little--every orchid could use a touch of wire, moss & ribbon :)  It's going   to work as a thank you to a very nice intern who has been helping us this semester.
