December Recap

Things got a little crazy at the end of December, especially with our taking a leap of faith and starting the missionary process. So here is a bit of what happened.
Little Guy took me "out" on a date. It was so sweet. Adam played the waiter and movie theater attendant. It was the best and most memorable date at home I will likely ever have.

Little Guy played trains with the chairs while I did some pre-Christmas cleaning.

We do 3 gifts each Christmas, one to wear, one for spiritual growth, and a gold gift (something fun). Here  he just opened his bible and is wearing his new PJs.

For his gold gift we gave him a Kindle!

Watching the original TMNT on his Kindle after Lunch...and still in his PJs.

I also got this super cute shot of our little doggie, Tucker!

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.


Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
