Wintery Time!

I wanted to share my newest photo, I just took about an hour ago:

I used to collect little erasers when I was in school.  I don't know why other than the sheer cuteness.  I could never actually use them, for fear of messing them up.  I completely forgot about my small collection until Connor snooped around in my stationary drawer and found them.  Score!  I think I need to take up eraser collecting again.

This next one I'm entering in Paper Mama's "Winter" Photo Challenge:

Connor gives sledding a thumbs up

Winter is not winter unless you can sled.

This was Connor's very first time sledding.  And it also happens to be the closest I think I ever came to having a heart attack.  Allan pulled little baby Connor up this huge hill, and then pushed him down, where upon I panicked wondering what the heck I was ever thinking sending him down.  He flew down so fast.  I don't know why I was so surprised with how fast he went... I mean... it's sledding.. it's fast.  I guess I just wasn't as fully prepared as I thought I was, to see my first born baby flying by me at mach speed.

He cracked up laughing the entire time.

  2. Everytime I go to Costco, I stare at this jumbo pack of 1,000 erasers. They are in all shapes & types. I always want it, but really. Who can justify 1,000 erasers!? Haha!
