Searching for Normalcy

"And finally, above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a good purpose and that’s why I made works of art…" – Felix Gonzalez-Torres

On Day 3 of our trip we woke up to find snow! Being a Miami girl, I can not possibly put into words how excited I was to see snow (even if it was only a little bit)!

At Uncle Dave’s house:

And at Grandma and Grandpa’s farm:
(FYI – when the sunlight hits it in just the right way, snow actually glitters! It was too overcast here, but a few days later when it was sunnier, it looked so beautiful. Like sugar crystals.)

We celebrated Family Christmas on this day with a delicious lunch (catered by Michael Jay’s Restaurant in Connell), family photos, then a gift exchange. Here is the adults’ Christmas tree all decorated and stocked with gifts (the kids’ tree and gifts were in the shop, where we ate lunch).

The following day we went to Connell (pop. under 3,000) to return the food containers to the restaurant. Then we went to a barbecue at Fanless’ aunt’s house (his dad’s sister), then to see his little cousin’s Christmas recital at the church.
