A Saturday Visit in Our Neck of the Woods

I've been trying to catch up for everyone's blog posts....so much going on right now....our house is decorated and ready..but still have to wrap packages is all...today, we put up the last of the outside Christmas lights...

Our weather here has been cool and cold.....down to freezing about every night and we've had rain on and off....feels like holiday weather for California...its predicted to rain for the next 3 days..wish it would snow! There is snow in the mountains.....

As you may or may not remember..Alan built boxes for planting late last summer...about 6 weeks ago, I did an experiment and planted some lettuce...well..here is the result.. I  just took this photo...

I think I may get enough with two boxes to have a nice salad soon..meanwhile, I've been pulling off leaves for sandwiches and hamburgers..cool, huh? the boxes don't seem to freeze and keep the plants protected in some way.....its just leaf lettuce but as they are doing so  well....hope he will get encouraged and build a few more boxes....we can always cover them with heavy plastic if the weather gets really wicked.....



Jayden is 4 months old now...and almost 20 lbs.......we got him a cute little stocking cap yesterday and of course, had to take his photo......




The kids got him this wonderful toy which he just loves..he can hold onto it with his chubby fingers and plays with it constantly.....
I know its hard to find toys for young babies...usually they are made for 6 months or older...we found just a few things for his age range....

and as I won't be posting tomorrow...here is a lovely video of "Do You Hear What I Hear" by the Mannheim Steamroller.....with Christmas lights..
