Scattered

I have so much going on that I'm having trouble finding focus these days. Luckily, I woke up to this today, so the kids are taken care of:
It's nine o'clock, and I just now heard George wake up. We live on a hill, with a busy street running right behind our bedrooms, so normally the traffic wakes them up. I love how the snow deadens the sound and keeps people from racing up and down the hill. The kids are going to FREAK OUT when they come out and see this! I'm sure there will be many photos to post later!

Because I need another project like a hole in my head, I've joined a group that is documenting the overlooked details in our lives. Our first challenge was to document our favorite coffee mug or drink cup. Dave should appreciate that this is one of the few mugs we use that isn't a part of our everyday dish set.


And mostly, I'm preparing for this:




I leave in THREE DAYS!!!! Wahoo!!!! Vegas baby!! I am beyond excited. Best part? Five hours of travel time with no kids to entertain!

Well, and I'm going to see/meet a couple dozen of my friends from around the world and be at a trade show with hundreds of the worlds leading companies that deal with all forms of photography and imaging. That stuff is good, too. ;) Drool!!

Edited to add:

I call them "Joined at the Hip"


My angels

The mighty snowball hunter

Let's play "Find the cat"

You are so lucky to get this snow! It has been many many years since I've made a snow angel. I loved the photos and the cat one made me laugh! Have fun in Vegas for me because it is too far for me to commute from SC.

The photo of the cat is awesome. But the others are just gorgeous. Love the greys and whites of the snow and branches broken up by the color of the children and dog.

Oh the kids are getting big! And I love the layout about the coffee mug. You always do a great job of memorializing the 'little' things that make up life :)

I am so wanting to go to Vegas - but it isn't in the cards for me. Have loads of fun (which you will) and take lots of pics (which you will). So basically - do what you normally do, without kids around! LOL!

Great pictures. That's quite a snowfall. Of course, what would I know ... I'm an urbanite.

Have fun in Vegas! Be sure to order pancakes in the Age of Enlightement.
