Little Wife On the Prairie

When you are everything to everyone, well, you had better act like you have it all together.

My husband, the artist.

Matt is all man.  He shoots guns, he works with wood, he fixes cars, he spits, he...I will spare you his other manly characteristics.  

Here and there I catch glimpses of a different side of Matt.  I see it in the way he will argue with me about paint colors or how to arrange the furniture.  I see it in the detail he puts into the furniture he rebuilds for our home.

He is an artist.  He sees a beauty in the things I rush past.  He love to dawdle and watch and appreciate.

I am so thankful for that balance in our world.  We would miss out on so much if it wasn't for our sweet Daddy.

Here are some of his snow-day pictures.

Catch-up time!!!

Few words, lots of pictures.  Let's do this!!!

We had a piano recital before Christmas.  Asher, my nephew Cody and my niece Emma all take piano from the same place.  That made it very nice for the recital.  We got to see them all!

We went to the local university to walk through the lights.  It is always a beautiful place but when the lights are hung, it is magical!

And we had a great, big wonderful snow!!!

This makes my heart happy.  This brother loves his baby sister.

There was Christmas  New Years and an anniversary somewhere in there.  But I failed to take pictures.  Bad mom.  At least I am caught up now.  I promise to do better!
