10 on 10: February

10 on 10:
Ten photos taken during one day or event, documenting that day or event, and posted on the tenth of the month.

This month, with predictions of an impending historic snow storm, I decided to do my 10 on 10 during Blizzard Nemo.  We survived the event with our power intact, a giant pine tree horizontal in our backyard instead of vertical, and 20 inches of snow.  Unfortunately, yesterday, our power went out for just over 24 hours which meant that I couldn’t get my post up in time to join in this month’s blog circle.   Here are my photos- better late than never!

The beginning:


A snowy dog:

Gabby’s favorite spot:




Eliza’s first time in the snow (yes, she was thrilled):


Friends came to stay as they had no power (and still don’t).  LP and his best buddy had a blast playing in the snow together (when they weren’t crying about getting snow in their faces!)


LP’s first “real” sledding experience– we have a very flat yard normally.


And some sledding the way we usually do it:


I took a ton more photos of the Blizzard and will share more later.  Thought these captured the event though!

I’m linking up to Jan Madert Photography who is the first blog in the circle! 


  1. Wow! Huge snowfall! That is a lot! Your kids are beautiful and I love the ones of the pup, especially the one of him in front of the fire. So cozy! Wish we got snow like that. :)

  2. Looks like a blast! We didn't get hit with as much where I live and I can't say I'm sorry except when I see your gorgeous photos!

Checking in....

Thought it was time for a little update on the projects we're working on at Casa LeBaron.   In living room news, our fireplace is almost finished!  The new tile has been grouted (no pictures yet) and all we have left to do is seal the grout and install the new fireplace doors.  Then I have to figure out how I want to style the mantel- I usually just throw a bunch of frames and things up there but am not sure if that's the way I want to go right now...  Here's how it's looking (or, here's how it was looking before we grouted the tile): Below is a close up of how we fixed our cabinet doors.  Originally they were oak with horrible brass hardware.  The panels on each door front was cracked and they were U-G-L-Y.  So we popped out the panels, painted the frames, and used my handy dandy glue gun to inset new panels.  The new panels were made from one sheet of radiator screening that we cut to size and sprayed with oil-rubbed bronze spray paint.  We added new handles and…

Things to Remember: Eliza Rose, Age 3

Today our sweet little Eliza Rose turns three.  Like all moms, I'm sure, it's hard for me to believe that she's already out of toddler-hood and becoming a preschooler.  It seems as though we were just preparing for her to join our family yesterday and now, of course, it's impossible to imagine what life would be like without Eliza around.

Eliza might be the smallest person in our house but she has the largest personality by far.  Shy in public, she's boisterous and energetic at home- running all over, squealing with excitement, bossing everyone around and trying to take charge at all times. 

She's stubborn and sensitive, sweet and sassy, and over the top spicy.  

At three Eliza's favorite things are her brother, her doggies, mermaids, stories, and princesses.   She loves to play tea party, help in the kitchen and go swimming.    Sometimes she says she's "Eliza BaBaron"- other times she's a "puppy doggy" or a "mermaid with a pi…

Paul Thomas: Things to Remember, Five

Oh what a difference a year makes.  Paul turned FIVE on Sunday.  Last year, when he turned four, I lamented the fact that he had gone from a toddler to a little kid in the blink of an eye.  Another blink later and he’s not a little kid anymore- he’s a big kid, a five year old, heading off to pre-K with his backpack and his lunchbox and not even a wave good-bye over his shoulder. 

LP has grown several inches since he turned four- just look at the difference in the photos below, taken just about a year apart.  He looks like a baby to me in the first photo, and so grown up in the second.

At five, Paul is intelligent, engaging, witty, and I have to admit, rather adept at sarcasm (it runs in the family on both sides and was bound to happen).  He loves to talk to anyone and everyone but is particularly happy talking to grown-ups, especially the elderly people who frequent the YMCA we attend.   I’ve been told several times by them that he’ll grow up to be a politician or a salesman.  When I…
