Merry Christmas

So what did Owen love most? The bounce house? no - the balloon and foaming soap! He sat in the chair squishing the soap and rubbing it in! And I think the balloon has been attached to his pants the whole day.

Lily doesn't seem to understand all the fuss. She just plays with whatever Owen puts down. She has enjoyed her two new stuffed toys. One is a bear that is just about the same size as she is - the other is a giant girl. Lily loves pointing out the bright blue eyes and hugging her.

Merry Xmas!

iPhone-y goodness

So, turns out I can blog from my new iPhone! Only takes me 10 minutes to type this in - I think I need smaller fingers!

All that walking and playing with kids was too much for Joe and The Dad.


Naptime - and we didn't even eat turkey!

Then it's home for kiddy cuddles and football!

This was our Thanksgiving morning...


Us and 28,000 of our closest friends did the "Run for the Hungry" - or as we do it, the "Stroll for the snackish"

It was right outside our house!


Good news for us - bad news for our neighbours - Get Well Soon, Layne!

You let him sit in a Fire Engine!

The winery is RIGHT on a fault line


and they even have a wine called "It's my fault". We stayed and watched the waves for a while.

4 years ago today...


I was fortunate enough to exchange vows with a wonderful, vibrant and intelligent woman - with a fantastic sense of humor. I'm stunned that, 4 years and 2 wonderful kids later, she is still as wonderful, vibrant and intelligent as ever - AND that she's put up with my beer-drinking, D&D playing, Buffalo Bills watching ass for this long! Love ya, babe!
