We had a quiet Christmas at home. Eric was on call all weekend so family was suppose to come see us. The crazy snow/ice storm that hit Oklahoma changed those plans. I enjoyed very much waking with my boys and watching them enjoy the morning. In true The Christmas Story fashion we even had Chinese food for dinner. Happy Memories!

PS. I will put them in matching jammies for Christmas morning until one or the other refuse.

It's 10 degrees this morning in Wichita. This is not where I want to be. I want to be out in the ocean. With the sun on my face.

Sailing takes me away

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
-- Mark Twain

7 days in San Diego Bay.
Sleeping on a boat.
Without a heater or hair brush.
Studying for hours for a test that matters only to us.
Romantic moments wearing a headlight on my forehead.
Public restrooms and showers.
Numerous fish tacos.
Hours spent walking hand in hand.
dolphins, sea lions
Sun Rise, high tide

Manners Monsters

Angela asked for Monsters for her playroom. I couldn't picture in my head what I wanted to do. Then one day I picked up a scrap of paper I had used for another piece of art and was inspired. Here's my interpretation of Manners Monsters. I like that they are a little off the wall. and super super silly. Remember beauty is in the eye of the beholder. :)

We enjoyed the holiday in Tulsa with our families. I am thankful each day for the opportunity to love. I have so many blessings.
