  • Ee-ya

    We are a pacifier family.  We offered both of our kids pacifiers and they both took to it like fish to water.  But, like fish, they need water to live, and our kids needed their pacifiers otherwise sleeping and security were out of the question (Gigi called her pacifiers Suckers and Jude came up with […]

  • Hawaii Song

    Guinevere and I have been playing guitar and singing together off and on for a while now.  We actually have some songs under our belt, and we have a nice little time when we get together and jam. We decided to write a new song together tonight and came up with the topic of writing […]
