Anatomy of a fire

As I was watching the BYU football game last Saturday I felt cold.
The weather was rainy and pretty chilly.
I felt an autumn draft.
I summoned Mr. Nielson and asked if he'd use the delicious smelling 
cedar and pinion wood 
{that he had just cut himself at the ranch}
to build me a fire.
He did, and I photographed him the whole time as I sat on the couch 
and watched.  It was awesome.

Then Charlotte woke up from her afternoon nap.  
Soon enough, the boys wandered in; Nicholas playing with his dragons 
and Oliver playing with his Lego's.
Shortly after that, the girls (plus cousin Lydia) came in to play paper-dolls.
 Something about a fire in the fireplace brings people together.

And you wonder why I LOVE colder weather...
 {Here is how it went down:}
Here is me watching the game and staring at the cold fireplace


I HEART my eagle Scout!!
