Today was a bit chilly here in the nations capital, -33 degrees celsius, brrrrr. Needless to say we didn't venture out. This little guy sits on our fish tank and makes days like these a little less bleak.
It seems like we are spending way too much time indoors lately and my options for interesting photos are few. Not to mention, with a house full of kids, finding the time to shoot is tricky - a few minutes here and there seems to be the norm. I cannot wait for Spring!
Anyhow, here is my shot for today - the potpourri from my dining room.
Today Declan had his first successful visit with a dentist.
The first time he wouldn't even get in the chair. Visit number two, he would barley open his mouth. The dentist referred him to a pediatric dentist to be knocked out so they could examine him.
Umm, no thanks.
I found a pediatric dentist myself and explained his anxieties, and they assured me he would love their practice and would help him get over his fears. They were amazing! He didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back!
Today was the funeral for Constable Ireneusz 'Eric' Czapnik.
I wanted today's photo to honor all the men and women who put their lives on the line each and every day. We have several family members and friends on the force. It was a sad, sad day. I couldn't go to the funeral, but did watch some of it online, it was sad and beautiful.
