We have enjoyed time with all the family, including out-of-town siblings, over the course of the holidays in November and December. Our families on both sides are expanding noticeably, with marriage and babies. It's a very exciting season, even if busy and a time of figuring out how to flex with it all (I have a feeling that's always part of life though... :-) We even managed to pull off whole-family photos!
We had a chance to go shooting together, for the first time!
I tried making homemade sauerkraut. It turned out well! Here it is fermenting on the counter, next to my sourdough starter. I'm not sure exactly how I ended up with things growing (on purpose!) in the kitchen...
Our wedding orchids are blooming again--all three plants!
Crandon has had some chances to fly his RC plane, a fun activity, especially with other RC enthusiasts!
We celebrated Mom's birthday with yummy food.
And today I got our first diapers in the mail! I'm looking forward to using cloth, with all the modern fabrics. I'm also hoping to make a few to add to my stash before our baby arrives. I'm trying for gender-nuetral colors and patterns.
