So, around these parts, when you don't get your tree up till the 13th... you take it down a lot later than usual... like yesterday. But yes, Christmas is gone. I keep my winter decor up a little longer... like my mitten garland over the window and anything with snowflakes. I'm into snowflakes this year. So you can imagine my sheer delight when I saw this pic on my friend Amy's Facebook yesterday. The perfect snowflake! I was stunned by this image of an actual snowflake! Who knew!
Miranda is doing great, other than a bad cold. She is going to meet up with a dear friend of ours from Denver today. Greg has been working in London for the past three months and is going to show her around the city. Greg and his family lived in Phoenix for many years and we sure miss them. But we are thrilled that Miranda will have her very own personal tour guide for the next couple weekends before he goes back to Denver. Thanks Greg!
When Randy's Dad died back in April, our dear, thoughtful Home Group gave us a beautiful rose bush to plant in memory of Dad Thompson. But within days it was covered in bugs and soon after died. We were sad to see it go, but eventually replaced it with a Cape Plumbago bush. Well, after months of neglect, you can imagine my surprise when I looked out my bedroom window yesterday and saw that it was blooming! Randy & I just love the color of the Cape Plumbago blooms! Don't you just!
