Last year at this time, we didn't have any snow on the ground. This year, we have piles of snow. We're finally out of the frigid below zero temperatures that started the year, and the kids have been thrilled to finally be able to play outside. While I haven't gone out to take photos of sunrises, I have looked around the backyard for interesting things to photograph.

As a stay at home mom of 4, life can often be rather mundane. I'll be posting here about our ordinary, every day life. You'll read about bargain shopping, eBay, fun family activities, recipes, the quest for healthy(er) living, and who knows what else?
