DPP: Day 23

The carnage from Stephen's target practice with snowballs.

DPP: Day 22

Stephen helped shovel snow this past weekend.

The power was out for a while Friday evening

DPP: Day 20

Another from Friday's snow. This is looking up the street from our house.

We will be visiting my inlaws this week, so I don't know if I'll keep up with DPP or not, but it was certainly fun.

EDIT: I'm posting a few in advance that will show up as the days go along.

The 80s Are Back

Or at least they are in a museum in Sydney

Ah, the movies, the ghetto blaster, the fluorescent colors.

DPP: Day 19

From yesterday's snow

Stephen thought it would be fun to hit himself in the face with a snowball. This is his reaction.

DPP: Day 18

This is a little stretch of road I drive through every day going to and from work. It's near the main entrance to campus. I love it for the year-round green and the view of the rocks, which tend to be covered in ice in the winter.

DPP: Day 17 - A Very Special DPP

Yesterday, there was a fire in Hoey auditorium, which is right across the street from my building. Here you can see the smoke:

Trucks from three fire departments responded. Thankfully no one appears to have been injured.

I grabbed a new camera we have in my office that makes panoramic images. Here is the result from the scene (click on it for the larger version):

DPP: Day 16

This is a bit fuzzy, but you can see the large stack of books that is on the orange bin. Lydia did that all by herself!

DPP: Day 15

Speedwell Baptist Church, Established 1902. It's about a mile from our house and I think it has an interesting look. It's about 100 yards from Cullowhee Valley Baptist church (one way) and Speedwell Methodist (the other way). (I've mentioned these three churches previously.)

Also: whoo hoo! 200th post on our blog!

DPP: Day 14

Stephen took this picture of Lydia while we were in the car.

DPP: Day 13

I stood in the same spot as Day 10, just different angle.

DPP: Day 12

Stephen's Kindermusic concert was last night in Dillsboro. (He's the third from the left in the back row). One big part he played was to do the finger cymbals - he was the only one to play them. He did very well of course.

DPP: Day 11

The stockings were hung on the...hutch with care.

And no, Stephen's is not bigger, they're both from Land's End. The angle just looks that way.

DPP: Day 10

View this morning from the front yard.

Pastoral Thoughts on Twilight

I confess I haven't read any of these books, but this post has some very interesting thoughts about them. Agree or disagree, I think this needs to be dealt with when considering whether or not to have them in your house.

DPP: Day 7

Lydia and her gingerbread house creation (actually graham crackers, but hey, who's keeping track). Note the icing on her face from eating part of her building materials.

DPP: Day 6

Some of Stephen (and his daddy's) Lego creations

DPP: Day 5

When it rains hard, this little rill and waterfall appear across the street.

DPP: Day 4

My currently insanely messy office at work.

DPP: Day 3

Stephen is in charge of arranging our Nativity scene. He thinks that all the people should be crowded around looking at Jesus rather than the spread out scene you see more often.

He's got some good theology there.

DPP: Day 1

A friend of mine participates in the December Photo Project. Basically, you post an interesting photo to your blog every day for the first 25 days of December. We'll see if I actually keep up with it.

Here's today's picture.

I'm slightly cheating since this is from our drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway a few weeks ago.
