Cold Front Coming Tomorrow

We’ve been having some very warm weather for this time of year in Northern Michigan. This afternoon Kristi, Zachary and I went for a walk and enjoyed the warm temperatures which were in the high 50’s today. Tomorrow a cold front is expected and hopefully some snow along with it.

Happy Birthday Kristi!

Kristi is 12 years old today. I’m very thankful for my sweet daughter.

Last Friday evening we had snow in the forecast. My kids were so excited when the snow began to fall. The little guys pulled chairs up in front of the window to watch the snow and were excitedly making plans about playing in it the next day. We’re getting a nice snowfall right now. Kevin M., Nick, Zack and I went for a walk in the snow this afternoon. Here are some pictures Kevin M. captured with his camera.

It’s the Job that Never Ends

When Kevin and Taylor were little we watched a kid’s show that had a song on it called “The Song that Never Ends.” That’s what raking leaves is like around here. We love our trees but in the Fall there is lots of raking to do!


Zachary and the trailer full of leaves.

Sunrise this morning


My morning walks are quite cold now but still worth seeing the sunrise. It was much more beautiful in person.
