Hearts in Atlanta

I've been trying for weeks to find time to blog and apparently it took two inches of snow and ice shutting down the City of Atlanta to allow me to catch up on email and find more than five strung-together minutes to do something other than work, sleep or take an occasional shower this month. 

We cannot keep from reading the news reports, Facebook updates from friends and family and emails from coworkers who have been so terribly affected by the lack of preparation and foresight by school officials, business leaders and transportation authorities.  It's unimaginable that friends are still stranded on a highway or at their office or have children who slept overnight at school under such circumstances. 

Our hearts are definitely in Atlanta today.  Prayers that everyone still stuck in the chaos can get HOME today. 

 

I did not pick up my camera very often this month, but I do have a few to share.

Henry was pretty excited about the brownie and ice cream.  He wasn't expecting a nice Pinot to go with it.

Sunday morning, the kids spent some time making drawings for our new Nanny that started with us this week.  Then we headed out to the zoo with the boys -- had to enjoy the 70 degree weather! -- and Ella went on her birthday shopping trip with Nana.
