Catching Up {again}

Ok, here goes... I've been snapping pictures over the past couple of weeks, but have been behind on getting them posted here on the blog. So, without further ado, the catch up post of Project 365 pictures and quotes.

“As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.”
-Pope John Paul II

“Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible;
and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
-St. Francis of Assisi

“While you are proclaiming peace with your lips,
be careful to have it even more fully in your heart.”
-St. Francis of Assisi

"Drops of water, by continually falling,
hone their passage through the hardest of rocks
but the hasty torrent rushes over it with hideous uproar
and leaves no trace behind.”
-Og Mandino

“For it is in giving that we receive.”
-St. Francis of Assisi

“What can you ever really know of other people's souls -
of their temptations, their opportunities, their struggles?
One soul in the whole creation you do know:
and it is the only one whose fate is placed in your hands”
-C.S. Lewis

“Wit is a sword; it is meant to make people feel the point as well as see it.”
-G. K. Chesterton

“When it comes to life the critical thing is whether you take things for granted
or take them with gratitude.”
G. K. Chesterton

“There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.”
-G. K. Chesterton

In last ditch effort on behalf of winter to show itself... we got a good amount of snow this past week, along with accruing a couple more snow days to make up. Although I don't think the girls will mind terribly since they got enough of a snow blast to once more take on our wicked sledding hill with gusto. With several days of sledding under our belts, we walked away with only one scraped face and not one broken body. By my standards, that's success.
“Stay home. Have fun. Build a snowman. Go sledding with the kids.”
-Mike Easley

{this picture makes me think of the cold pole in A Christmas Story}
Flick: Are you kidding? Stick my tongue to that stupid pole? That's dumb!
Schwartz: That's 'cause you know it'll stick!
Flick: You're full of it!
Schwartz: Oh yeah?
Flick: Yeah!
Schwartz: Well I double-DOG-dare ya!
Ralphie [narrating] NOW it was serious. A double-dog-dare. What else was there but a "triple dare you"? And then, the coup de grace of all dares, the sinister triple-dog-dare.
Schwartz: I TRIPLE-dog-dare ya!

I watched A Christmas Story for the first time this year. A friend of Marguerite's is a graphic designer and she was doing an end of year giving piece for some charity and needed a picture of a little boy licking a pole. She wanted to use Daniel. It was fun for Daniel to have context for his posed picture.

Love all your photos, Noel. They are all the more poignant with the quotes!
