Today's picture/4.39 pm


On our way walking down (and looking back to our house) to bring cake and present to Margaret for the 36th Margaret's Day. It was the 19th, but Hazel had gotten up early and was tired so we waited till today. Margaret's Day is the day that our Margaret flew on a plane at one day under four months old to become our daughter.

  1. 36 years! Amazing! And the lights on your house through the snowy branches look amazing, too. This could be a Christmas card (or a set for a commercial). So, so beautiful!

  2. What a wonderful day to celebrate! I am also adopted, born at the end of January and adopted 13months later, in March.

    1. Hooray for adoption! We adopted our son three years later. I wrote about their days: https://lettersfromahillfarm.blogspot.com/2008/11/november-19-1982.html

    1. Thanks, Cath. Her friends used to be jealous when she was little because she had two birthdays!

  4. What a joyous day to celebrate. This picture reminds me of the song "Over the river and through the woods to Grandmothers house we go..." There will be lots of coming and going the next few days. This post shows how much we all have to be thankful for.

    1. We are actually going to Estée's parents house, and it is indeed over a river and through woods, and she is a grandmother to Campbell and Indy!
