A Note from Donna
Living in Southern California we are blessed with fairly mild winters. Actually, sometimes you wonder if it is winter at all! This past month the weather has been so lovely, and my boys have been spending a lot of time outside playing in the back yard, perhaps even more so than in the summer. I love the smell of their little sweaty heads when they come back indoors. This is the pile of stuff they leave behind on our back door mat. I make them clean it up eventually, but I have to admit that sometimes, I love looking at this mess.
These days, because the weather has been so beautiful, and because mommy is starting to feel tired more often, you boys have been spending a lot of time outside. This is what the back door mat looks like when you come inside. I love it. December 6, 2011
