Elise & Becca are *wonder*ful friends!
My whirring windmill...put the camera on the tripod, set the shutter speed to really slow, and got a fun shot of my awesome windmill spinning in the wind!
Later on Tuesday, after the wind, we had some amazing sun and dark rain clouds, which produced this lovely rainbow. Wonderful reminder of a wonderful promise.
In the afternoon it began to snow! I couldn't believe it actually started to snow hard and stick to the ground! By late afternoon we had a few inches and it was still coming down. I had to drive in it because the girls had lessons and it was pretty nasty by the time darkness fell. I went to bed pretty convinced we would have a disruption to our normal Thursday routine due to the snow and I was right! No school! Will wonders never cease? ;)
The girls got to play outside with the neighbors quite a lot! Sarah and her friend like to build snow forts in the crawlspace access.

For my photography-minded friends who read my blog: I used www.picnik.com to edit some of those pictures. It was pretty fun! It's a free online tool one of my fellow blogging photographer friends told me about, so I just had to try it out!
