  • Actual happiness looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn’t nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand. - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
  • Education
    "Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the stars and the mountains above. Let them look at the waters and the trees and flowers on Earth. Then they will begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education." -David Polis
  • "Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it... but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one becomes to feeling ill... Thus if one just keeps walking, everything will be all right." -Soren Kierckgaard
  • Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. - Albert Camus
  • How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. Annie Dillard

Great Job boys! Nice tradition, love your new smile Silas. Grandmom


That is so sweet Michelle! I love that Tiny kept saying, "i can't believe you are teaching me to knit." That is very cute. What great ornaments you are making!! Wow! Your tree looks very nice.

That is a fantastic tradition!!


What a great photo of the boys! Your tree looks beautiful. I think it is even a better tradition to make their own ornaments. They will remember the fun you all had together. Levi's cat is amazing, it's hard to believe he is only 3+. I loved Si's snow angel, so creative. It just goes to show what a loving and patient Momma the little guys have, hats off to you Michelle. I'm so glad you are all together to enjoy a Maine Christmas! Nana
