And Then We Snapped - week #15

This week started with 2 very tired children traveling back from their Gammy's house and ended with our first snow. We also took a trip to the science center mid-week. 

“Be a child again. Flirt. Giggle. Dip your cookies in your milk. Take a nap. Say you're sorry if you hurt someone. Chase a butterfly. Be a child again.” 
― Max Lucado

“When I was a child my mother said to me, 'If you become a soldier, you'll be a general. If you become a monk, you'll be the pope.' Instead I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.” 
― Pablo Picasso

“Families are designed to nurture the minds, wills, and emotions of its members so that the barriers created by fear of the unknown can be replaced by the confidence that comes from knowing you are loved whether you succeed or fail.” 
― Leigh A. Bortins

“The dark does not destroy the light; it defines it. It's our fear of the dark that casts our joy into the shadows.” 
― BrenĂ© Brown

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.” 
― Khalil Gibran

I have taken this same shot so many times, and for some reason for me it just never gets old. 

“The truth is that when one is still a child-or even if one is grown up- and has been well fed, and has slept long and softly and warm; when one has gone to sleep in the midst of a fairy story, and has wakened to find it real, one cannot be unhappy or even look as if one were; and one could not, if one tried, keep a glow of joy out of one's eyes.” 
― Frances Hodgson Burnett

“Wow, really snowed last night! Isn't it wonderful? Everything familiar has disappeared! The world looks brand new!
A new year ... a fresh, clean start! It's like having a big white sheet of paper to draw on! A day full of possibilities! It's a magical world, Hobbes, ol' buddy ... let's go exploring!” 
― Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes: It's a Magical World it
