Ice storm 2009

yep, we have been iced-in. i have been doing all kinds of domestic stuff. i made tabitha a knitting chart. well, i provided the envelope of technology and she provided the creative juice. she exercised her google-foo and found an old tapestry that had a representation of desired heraldic design. i mashed it around in photoshop and converted it to the proper resolution for easy coloring. tabitha sat down to it and tweaked it until she was happy. i then imported it into illustrator where the graph and numbers were added. this is the result.

she plans to knit it into a sweater for tristan.

the ice then sleet then ice then snow made for a wonderfully wintry scene.

the kids love it.

toly especially likes the snow.

happy day for them

tristan really really loves the snow too.

he spent more time outside today than indoors.

sledding is a favored activity.

i got to stay home for the second day in a row and worked on my new shelf.

henry the-show-dog is a snow-dog. he loves the snow too.

tabitha and rome came out to see the majesty.

the trees are laden with ice.

tristan is a great big brother.

ice everwhere

heavy and beautiful

i took the kids for a pull.

geared up for the ride

ok, let's go

they survived the final curve.

one more time.

henry needed to get into the action.

again, again..

sweet elysium

henry had never seen me play like this.

rome wanted to get into the fray

all the trees were bowing under the weight.

cute dog house

many fallen broken trees

the ice is so thick and beautiful.

not quite as beautiful as my lovely wife.

even the beautiful gate is envious.

the chickens are a bit freaked out.
