Henry playing with the frozen trucks in his rain boats. He now has some really snazzy snow boots.

Hazel lounging on Henry's new construction vehicle blanket. Henry really likes the blanket, especially the two cement mixers, but we haven't convinced him to use it in his bed.

So far my coin searching for 2011 is going pretty good.

219 small dollars didn't produce anything.

4,760 quarters had one proof quarter (2000S MA), seven Canadians and one US dollar (a Susan B. Anthony).

3,900 dimes yielded one silver Rosie (1947, my first silver of 2011), seven Canadians, two UK 5 pence, one Ireland 5 pence and five US pennies.

3,200 nickels turned up one proof nickel (2006S), seven Canadians and one US dime. This new proof nickel (although beat up) is now the rarest (by mintage) nickel I've found. 2,000,428 were minted.

5,000 pennies rounded up thirty-four Wheats, fifty-four Canadians, six US dimes and one Euro 2¢. The Wheats were:

1919S, 1939, 1940, 1941(2), 1942, 1942D, 1944(2), 1945, 1950, 1951D, 1952(2), 1952D(2), 1953(3), 1953D(2), 1955(2), 1956(3), 1956D(3), 1957D(3), 1958

Found: 2 pennies, 1 dime

Redeemed (2010): $20.70
