Not Raining? Then Get Thee Outside.

 The residents of the West Coast haven’t been hit by the massive snow storms that have blanketed much of the East. Instead we’ve been plugging along with our normal grey winters. But occasionally we get a few rays of sunshine penetrating the clouds and then it’s all hands outside for a little Vitamin D.

Grandma has been crafting beautiful sweaters for the kids.

I had a grandmother (bless her) that sent me a few sweaters when I was a wee little tyke. They must have taken countless hours to make; unfortunately they were always a bit caddywhompus, and one arm was typically longer than the other. I never knew if it was because sweaters are difficult to master or if was because this particular grandmother was a bit too liberal with the spirits in the evening.

I’ve never made a sweater so it’s pure speculation on my part.

These sweaters are gorgeous. And the arms are the same length. win-win.

In other news, we have yet another contender for awkward family photo of the year!

What’s up with the chokehold, Benjamin? Emma is not amused.

Sorry the photos are a little camera is on the fritz.

    Just the other day, I was pondering the lack of sprained ankles in the high heel relay race. It is rather amazing.
    I thought it sweet that you wanted to invite Mrs. Roraback--a lovely teacher. And she was good enough to come!
