Candy corn

Ryan went to the store to buy supplies for an upcoming car repair, and now there's a big bowl of candy corn on the stove. I guess he really is my kid.

Seth and Darcy not playing in the snow

Darcy likes the snow, but she's no longer interested in playing in it.
Seth tried to persuade her otherwise.
"Sorry, Dadda. Not interested." 
Oh well, she's still a good girl.

Seth and Emma playing in the snow

Today was our first "big" snow of the season. Seth and Emma (and the Beaver) played in it.

First snow

There's been snow in the forecast for the last three days, and today, it finally happened.
The girls and I went outside to take photos. 
It came down hard for about twenty minutes.
Goodbye, pepper plant! 
Emma was very cooperative and posed nicely for the camera.
Darcy chased squirrels...
and sulked.
 When did my dogs switch personalities?

Academic recognition ceremony

Today started with an early morning academic recognition ceremony.
James received an academic bar...
and an AP Scholar with Distinction medal. 
This medal is awarded to students who average a minimum of 3.5 on all their AP exams and score 3 or more on at least five of these exams.
 Of course, James will let you know that he has taken five AP exams and his average score is 4.8.
He might be smart. 
James' best friend, Kevin is smart, too. 
He also got an academic bar and an AP Scholar with Honor medal.

All the allergens!

I love this little barn kitty, but I can not touch her.
