Week 18 #35 Starts With A “C”


My husband and I spent Thanksgiving with all our children and grandchildren at our daughter’s home in Minnesota.  They recently moved there after living in Colorado for a number of years.  With this move they purchased a large enough home we were all able to stay with them.  We haven’t all slept under the same roof for almost 10 years. Our daughter is very creative and enjoyed planning our meals and activities for the kids and adults.  It snowed the first day we were there and in no time she and her husband  were able to come up with snow gear to fit all the grandchildren to enjoy playing outside for hours in the fresh snow.  It was a real treat especially for the Florida clan, they haven’t played in snow since moving here over 3 years ago.

Upon our arrival our daughter pointed out to all the adults that she had purchased a coffee cup for each of us to use while there and take home at the end of our stay.  Each cup was chosen very meticulously for each one of us to fit our personalities.  We all had lots of laughs as she presented us with our cups.   I just love my “C”up!

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.
