My Snapshots

What have we been up to in the past month? Take a look and see:


This month began at a low point, but by the end, had climbed back up to almost normal...
 

I'd mentioned last month that our sweet April passed away, and that kept us under a gray cloud for quite a while...


We all pretty much moped around missing her all month, but tried different things to lift our spirits - Gv spent time doing all the activities in this cool kit that she'd received for Christmas...


I worked on this satisfying puzzle that I'd gotten for a gift...


An we all played this fun escape room-style game (another Christmas gift)...

We still miss our April, but are finally starting to look forward to what spring has in store for us...

Ever since our sweet dog April passed away, Gv's been feeling a bit scared when she wakes in the night and can't just snuggle up with 70+ pounds of furry reassurance, so I was happy when this arrived:

My Snapshots

What have we been up to in the past month? Take a look and see:


This month was even full-er than our usual Decembers!



Our month was greatly taken up with Christmas Carol rehearsals and performances. We helped the director build sets one evening and all had a little too much fun doing it!


Onstage as Belinda Cratchit.


The final bows - such a fabulous experience!


I'd had this on my Christmas list and was sooooo excited when I got it! It made my rainbow-heart happy the whole time I was putting it together and I'm planning to frame it and display it someday.


This photo was taken New Year's Eve, but we lost our sweet April the next day. Not the way we wanted to begin 2024, but we're thankful to have had her in our lives.


And that pretty much wrapped up the month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?
