This spring-fed creek usually runs up to the tops of the rock-bridge we're standing on. The water runs through the rocks, and makes a nice waterfal on the other side. The water is so deep that I have to tread water while swimming there. Now? well, you can walk down the completely dry creek bed. We really need a lot of rain to fix this.

When I picked Eric up from the airport last Friday, we stopped in Norman for lunch. We were very undecided as to where to eat, and decided to eat somewhere other than our usual haunts. There's a Pei Wei asian cafe near the super target, I had cash. They gave Awyn chopstick holders, and a new craze has swept throught the family. (I, naturally, do not require holders. Eric's improving, and can feed himself). We had to manufacture an excuse to go back there to get Sam in on this. Now we're saving the holders and taking home a couple extra pairs of chopsticks each time we go (my chopsticks at home are too big to fit very well, although that's what Awyn is using in these pictures).

There was just enough powdery ice on the surface for the kids to attempt snow angels. It froze solid almost as fast as it was falling, but luckily the pellets didn't build up much on the trees. We had 3 inches of solid ice across our entire yard, drive, and road. Pretty, but hard to get around in.
