Look what I found today!

I (Lydia:) was up at 5:30 this morning, and as I was sitting at the computer, something kept flying by my head. I swatted at it a few times thinking it looked like a moth or something. I got up a few minutes later, and to my surprise, I realized there was a BAT flying around in our house. So... I quickly went into the garage and grabbed a big fishing net and some gloves. I caught the thing eventually and took a couple pictures.
Here he is! Very interesting little creature!
Merry Christmas everyone!

Science Discoveries

1. This is what happens to an egg in the hen house in the wintertime when the temperature drops significantly below freezing. We learned why.
2. Potential medical breakthrough - An experiment was tried last night and we're hopeful as we continue to gather data this morning. Sleeping overnight in a recliner seems to be profitable in relieving Mommy's night-time shoulder pain! Woo hoo!

Brrrrrrrrrr. . . .

It's been a little cold here lately! This is the farm animal's water in the mornings. . . .
The low temps are dipping down into the low teens, and the "high" temps are in the low 30's!

Oh, and gotta have the chocolate advent calendars!

And this is the pretty full-moon view we had this evening:)
