Betsy enjoyed a sweet treat yesterday in honor of Valentine's Day.

Today Betsy saw snow for the first time.

In honor of this momentous occasion here are some other photos from today:

I can honestly see myself getting used to this.

02/12/10: snowcountry

Friday evening the Lowcountry turned to the Snowcountry. We only got about three inches at most - but this is the most snow we've seen here in Charleston since 1989, so we were all really excited about it!

Waiting for snow.

It's here!

Nothing says Snowcountry like a palmetto tree covered in the white stuff:

02/11/10: cookie craze

In this house, EVERYONE has a sweet tooth. We didn't have any semi-sweet morsels, so my husband got desperate. White chocolate chip cookies. They tasted just like sugar cookies, but with white chocolate.

So simple, but really pretty darn tasty.

02/10/10: southend brewery

My husband and I went out for a date night on Wednesday. Our church has a monthly philosophical discussion called Talks on Tap and it's usually pretty low-key, but this month they changed date and locale, and it was PACKED, so we didn't stay. However, I did get a cool shot while on the (closed) second story of Southend Brewery, where ToT was being held. I got two cool shots, in fact...

A view out the window...

And a photo of the beerworks.

ben's first solid food

My son is a little tank. He's barely four months old and weighs over sixteen pounds already. He's drinking up to 6 oz. of fluid every two hours. So this evening we put him in the highchair and gave him his first taste of rice cereal.

He LOVED it!

Don't worry little dude, you'll have more for breakfast tomorrow.

gumball tree 2

This time I kept the blue sky but darkened the tree against it, so it looked the way that I saw it when it caught my eye and I thought it would make a great picture. Do you like this one or the black and white better?
