It's -7 degrees right now and I think our high for the day is going to be -2. I guess it will be a good day to stay home, fire up the woodstove and throw something in the crock-pot. We had to go into town yesterday and it was 3 degrees at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. Just walking from Target to the car was an experience. As you know, all this is new to me, so I had fun being out for a short time. People are telling us we haven't had an extreme winter here since 1997, so I'm curious when the next big one will be. Anyway, I think today is a good day to stay inside, drink some coffee and maybe get some things done around here. I might even knit a scarf -- kinda, sorta, maybe.

Three Nativities --
I wanted to share 3 pictures today. This first one I used for our Christmas cards last year. My son Nathan drew it. He loves birds and knew how much I loved nativities, so he combined the two. I thought it was really cute. It's a little hard to see, but the Baby Jesus eagle only has his 2 little feet sticking out of the egg. The angels and the Mary eagles all have their eyes closed like they're praying. Too cute. The pictures below are of an ornament my oldest daughter Nichelle made for me last Christmas. One side has the Holy Family and the other side has the Wise Men. I was really stunned by her artwork on this one. I know I'm biased, but my kids are awesome.
