Sometimes in the busy hum of our household, I look around and take a snapshot in my mind. This afternoon, I actually got the camera out because I didn't want to forget the ordinary yet special gift of time I get to hold as my own.
Olivia and Katherine were pretending outside on the back porch in the balmy weather. They even built a "fire".
My mom (what a treat!) finished those skirts I've been trying to sew for months, and in the process I learned how to shrink a pattern to fit Katherine.
Sarah was in the kitchen creating a gingerbread nativity from her amazing brain.
And Benjamin was transposing a "The First Noel" into alto clef so he could play it on his viola.
