  • Summer? Could it be?

    The other night we got out the sprinkler for the first time this year.  The kids danced through it, thrilled at the warm, evening air.   They jumped, they wiggled, they squealed, they were darling.  And it is summer.  I love.  Sigh…    

  • Tamara

    Bradley says this is the most honest picture taken of me lately.  He says it shows my skin texture and color, my eyes and my energy.   I thought that was nice, so thought I should post that picture for posterity.   One day, when the polish of middle age has worn off, when I am […]

  • S’more S’mores!

    June hits and our kids start thinking about marshmallows.  I am not kidding.  As soon as the grill gets turned on, they start dancing around us and chanting all about s’mores.  If you follow our blog at all then you know the significance of s’mores for us.  As vegetarians we can’t eat regular marshmallows because […]

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

Jude Said

  • Nicknames 2013-01-04 21:30:33-

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
