Hello, September. You sure look different…

I have weird butterflies as I open the “Add New Post” page. Is it because it’s been so long since I’ve done so? Is it because I’m not quite sure what to say? How to say? Is it excitement? Trepidation? Blogger’s guilt? I truly have no idea. I do know that this posts marks theRead more

A day at Wild Waves Theme Park.

Last Thursday we “spontaneously” (for us, we are typically planners and this day trip was only conceived a few days in advance) trekked up to Federal Way, WA for a day of family fun in the sun. Does that sound like a Wild Waves ad? Cheesy though it may sound, we had a blast. WaterRead more

Disneyland: Part IX – The last day.

I will, I will make this briefer. I will try. [Besides, I’ve got other things to do and numerous other posts swimming around inside my head. At this moment they feel infinitely more interesting but nowhere near as warm and fuzzy nor nostalgic.] The third day of our Parkhopper Pass was also our last. WeRead more

Disneyland: The Plan.

  Tomorrow’s the big day! Today we have no plans other than laundry, packing, picking up some last minute essentials (so far the only thing that’s on the list is snacks) and maybe fitting in a tad bit of pre-chaos relaxation. Bonus would be if we (the grown-ups) could get another Oscar nominee under ourRead more

Life getting in the way.

That is what’s happened right now. In the past two weeks we’ve spent extended time in Seattle and Portland. We’ve booked major wedding components and checked out a big handful of houses.

Ali, Alyssa and "Abuh" sleeping on the way home from our Christmas in Salem, OR on 12/28/08. Grabbing a snack at Northgate mall on New Year’s Eve. Ringing inRead more

Christmas pictures!

I know the holidays are practically a distant memory at this point. But I just now uploaded the few pictures I got. Especially compared to last year! December 20th, the night before Christmas at our house. Enjoying a Christmas snack at her new table and chair set. We took our tree down on December 21st!!Read more

The great crib caper.

Okay, let’s start with that. Again, a video. We’ve been having some fun with Tony’s new[ish] MacBook and hope you have too. Yes, life as we know it is over. For the moment we just moved the changing table over and hope that buys us a little more time. Yes again, Ali is wearing aRead more
