As some of you know, I am trying to take pictures of the river throughout the year, to watch the seasons change.
I started in October, and I was sure that I could take a picture a day.
I have discipline.
Then I went to once a week when the weather was not as nice.
We have a drafty stroller, and I can't walk with both of the kids to the spot where I take the picture as it's on a busy street.
Now I am resigned to once a month.
That said, here is the official January photo.
I will not preclude myself from taking as many as I am able throughout the month, but this is the official one.
So, without a camera these past few weeks, I have had no pictures of the kids' gifts this birthday and christmas season.
Here, therefore, is a picture of the gift from Brian and me for the younger Hug-a-Bug on his birthday- You can see the Elder Hug-a-Bug's puppet theatre in the background.
For christmas we gave the Hug-a-Bugs a set of blocks from Beka, and dyed them to make them bright and fun.
The Elder H-a-B's favorite new activity is building corrals for her dolls.
Here she is mid construction, "I'm not quite finished with my corral"
And here is her photo of the finished product-
I hope that all who read here have a healthy and prosperous Tuesday.
See you soon,
