Yep, we have ice...and lots of it. But we don't have nearly as much as the folks northeast of us have. At my mom's house, my dad's house, my sister's house and my two brothers' houses they do not have electricity. My mom said that they could hear the large branches on the trees cracking during the night and there are large branches down all over her yard. She said it looks like a war zone. So far, we don't have any branches down at our house, although the trees are really being pulled downward by all of that ice.
This is from a Japanese Maple tree that sits just outside of our living room window. Over the past week or so, I have been admiring the beautiful red leaves. They have a very unique, but still very pretty, look now. It is a beautiful tree. I am hoping that it is not damaged by all of the ice.
In other news, here are some pictures of the boys, doing some of the activities I have talked about recently: playing with colored water, moving it from one side of the dish to the other with sponges and medicine droppers and playing with buttons, sorting them into ice trays.
