You'll notice that most of these are taken from the deck or patio - it's because i was to lazy to put shoes on and those are the only places not covered in snow!

It's cold....

it snowed two days ago and the snow is still there
the ice i threw on the ground yesterday has not melted
the outside thermometer won't work because it can't withstand temperatures under 30 degrees

Now to those of you in Iowa this may seem warm - but in Centralia, It's frigid. :)

Deli tree.

Every year in downtown Centralia they have a month long event where most of the shop owners decorate their windows and people go around town trying to figure out what Christmas carol the window is. This year we decided to incorporate W4C into our tree. Can you guess what song we are???

Porter has one thing on his Christmas wish list:
A limo with a pool sized hot tub.
he is going to be one sad kid on Christmas morning................

Well this post was going to be about the beautiful glass ornaments my Grandma made but they are all sold out and she had to order more glass that wont be here 'till after Thanksgiving!!! Oh well to bad. ***** Update on Rotary meeting - it was going to be today but the guy who wanted us to come was sick so we will hopefully get to do it NEXT week.*****
Oh yeah I almost forgot - We brought W4C stuff to church this past Sunday and it was a hit. We brought 4 bracelets and they were sold within a matter of minutes. (needless to say we have 10 more orders for next week!) I think we made around $180.

So Camille and I had to hand out some posters earlier and we passed this really cool, random store and we went inside. I had $10 and so we both picked something we wanted to get and this is what we chose - To bad they don't actually make you invisible though!!!

Roadkill marshmallow!

OK so Liam got a strawberry marshmallow with chocolate on the outside and for some reason he felt the need to squish it into the table before eating it. I thought it looked a little like raodkill.
ug. I'll never be able to eat a marshmallow again without thinking of that!

The pumpkin patch.
