i have a habit of ordering the macy's special over and over again at our favorite coffee shop. they are super yummy, but most of all i love collecting photos of the different pretty things drawn on them.
yesterday it started snowing and we have over 6 inches already. people are saying to expect 12 inches more through the weekend, and mateo keeps asking me to put on his "windy" (winter) boots.
after hearing so much about them, i finally started reading the hunger games. it is easy reading, but suspenseful, and i zipped through the first 2 out of 3 books in a few days. now i'm just waiting on the library holds list for the third. luke is now in the middle of book 1 and we've been reading together every night - one of my favorite things. have you read them?
speaking of luke, he has a website!
speaking of luke and speaking of websites, he also started a blog! he kept asking me for help and it was fun working on it together.
i had my heart set on signing up for a ceramics class after 6 years of living in towns where doing that wasn't possible, but nau told me their classes are for "college aged" students (and already full), and the community college here would consider me out of state, making the single class cost about $1000. there were some tears shed, but i have decided there must be something else for me next semester.
mateo earned his first little bit of cash this week after being observed for a speech development study at nau.
our little ruby has 2 tiny tops of teeth almost poking through her bottom gums. she is as happy as ever though, so hopefully she is not feeling the pain.
today we looked at a house for rent downtown. it has so many things going for it - price and character and a fenced yard and a big kitchen and tons of windows! but it is a 2 bedroom, so we would be downsizing quite a bit. i think it sounds like a nice challenge though - we have way too much stuff. we are hoping to make a decision today, so we would love your prayers for us to make the right one!
flagstaff has a lot for us this weekend: we are meeting luke in an hour on north campus to see something light up with the mayor and some luminarias i think as well and then following a parade downtown to see more things light up and then we are going to attempt the art walk for a little while. and tomorrow, mateo's favorite children's singer is playing at our favorite bookstore and there is a mama/baby clothing swap in sedona. i'm sure there will be some snow play, too. have a happy weekend, friends!
