A Photo A Day: Week 10

Day 64
March 5: We woke up to about 6 inches of very wet snow and it was still snowing! So we did what Jonah has been wanting to do all winter. We made a HUGE snowman. I completely underestimated how heavy the middle ball was and almost could not get it up on the first one by myself!

Day 65
March 6: Something about graffiti just calls for me to take a picture. Here is a tag on a "parked" train that I saw and had to come back and take a picture.

Day 66
March 7: Can you believe that all 8 inches of snow we got on Friday have completely melted? I think that made my tulip sprouts (and me!) happy.

Day 67
March 8: The snowman saga continues... every day Jonah would make me go put the eyes and nose back on the snowman. I knew this wouldn't last, since he was the only snow left in the neighborhood! Sure enough on Monday his head fell off. So Jonah made the best of it... he said, "We'll just make this ball the head!"

Day 68
March 9: Here is the cake that I made for Eli's 2nd birthday. I hope you are impressed because I sure am! It was my first attempt at fondant and the first time I made a cake shaped like a number! I LOVE the way it turned out... oh, and Eli liked it too.

Day 69
March 10: I have tons of pictures from Eli's birthday, but this one is my favorite. Oh how I love this little guy! I can't believe he is already two!

I know there should be a Day 70 photo today... but I took my best picture AFTER I had already uploaded these. So now you are going to have to wait for it!

  28. In truth there is something very pretty about a lot of graffitti. Unfortunately the artists are wasting there talent and risking getting arrested. It is a shame.
