From the Hwy 42 Bridge, looking upriver...December 23. River is so clear you can see every rock on the bottom of the river...

I have used this ornament for a few years...at one point Tyler questioned what it was and I told him it was a replica of an old-fashioned candy...he has decided it is a replica of bacon and this year the first thing he did when he saw the tree was to search for the bacon ornament! Haha!
Richard worked with the firewood this week and brought home this neat nest for the tree...I was careful put it away from the lights...I love it! So cute!
and then he found another one!
I came home from somewhere the other day and this red acorn was laying in the floor...it had come unglued from it's cap....upon further investigation I discovered on the back it tiny print it has '91 and someone's initials. I knew it came from a craft show....so after 26 years it should be no surprise it came apart...I am fixing it today!

We had a beautiful first day of Winter here....and our last day of above average temps for a while too. This afternoon we went out to the cabin to do a couple chores...sure was a pretty day!
River is very low and very clear!

Richard took these pictures for me way back in the woods while working on a survey job. It was chilly that day and here are some frost flowers. Pretty neat!
The hills were pretty steep where he had to go...and you can see how far you can see through the woods.
Would like to see what this looks like after some rain!
Big old cedar with what appears to be where bobcats sharpen their claws...how neat would that be to see!
another spot up in the tree
Looks like the Ozarks!

We took the two older grandkids to the cabin for a bit this afternoon...it was so nice out. The kids swept up the leaves on the deck into a pile..
Emily had fun throwing them all around..
They both picked a few sandpile toys to bring down from the cabin. They had a real good time playing.
Emily's birthday cake she made!
and Tyler's. They even had a particular stick to "light" the candles with.

Before I stored away Halloween and Thanksgiving I got these out from behind where those totes go....The Barbie cars I had saved from when our girls were little...two bottom ones were some generic brand and the two on top were actually Barbie brand. I am looking forward to seeing Emily's reaction when she sees them....and to see which one she picks to take home first.
And this one was down there too..a RV type van. You can tell the kids played with all these quite a bit.....
and then I saw where one wheel was broken off....amazingly it still kind of rolls...But...why on Earth did I keep this? guess I just couldn't let it go! ha!
