Holly Look-a-Like

It is actually Oregon grape or the Latin name is Mahonia. It fools me every time.

Chirstmas Projects

I love Christmas. Robin and I have had fun making snowflakes, popcorn balls, and popcorn garlands! Kelly and I made cheese ball and he requested brownies. I love smelling the tangerines with cloves poked in them.

Earth's crammed with heaven, and every common bush afire with God; but only he who sees takes of his shoes.
~Elizabeth Barrett Browning

These are just some of the leaves that I picked up this morning on our walk with Robyn and Laura. This series also goes with this post.

Spillway and Parking Garage

I think my mom would say"Oh Sally, that is the Jensen coming out."

Three Seasons

I thought this photo was funny thinking of the different seasons. A beautiful fall tree, the white Christmas tree and the the palm tree all out on the yard. Only in Las Vegas.

Hoover Dam

It was so fun to visit it again. I am always impressed with what the builders accomplished. They are currently building a bridge that will be incredible. 112 deaths were associated with the building of the dam and I was sad to hear that someone also just died working on the bridge. They say that the concrete in the dam is still setting! After we came back for Mediterranean pizza. It was hot but it was really good and very colorful.


Ben blessed his new baby Eli this weekend. It was so fun to see there family! We love them and wish we could see them more often.

Yesterday during lunch I gave Clara some crackers and then looked away to get her sandwich ready. I look back and they were all in her water bottle. I can see the appeal of putting them in there. It is fun to drop things, they float and they look cute but it makes bad tasting, floaty water.

Christmas lights

Clara loves Christmas decorations. She saw Kassie's and literally oohed and ahhed. She did the same thing when I put up ours. My friend Annie had a photo like this on her blog and I thought I would try it. I think it is a cute idea for a little portrait session.
