Family Tiny Bathroom Painting

We painted the tiniest bathroom in all of North America, all five of us at once. (Okay, Grammy, you’ve got that one bathroom that’s smaller – with the RV sink it in and all. But this makes for a more dramatic story.) Here are some photos: (click the top photo to see the album) family […]

Uncle Denny’s Beach House (more catch up)

After the highly social Christmas week in San Jose, we had the perfect pleasure of heading about 40 minutes north to stay in Uncle Denny’s fabulous little beach house. As soon as you walk into this warm little haven of a place, your breath releases. There’s a huge palm tree standing lamp and various guitars, […]

Haircuts!

Our triennial hair salon adventure! I can’t believe that we don’t take the girls to get their hair cut professionally more often, it makes such a HUGE difference! Simone was very reluctant, until she saw that they give away lollipops if you get a haircut. Then she hopped right into the car and had them […]

Cousin Visit – Dec 2008

The girls LOVE when their cousins, Miles and Marabee, come to visit. Tons of good times: snow play, bath play, house play, dance play, swim play, scavenger hunt play, craft play… all around lots of play. Look at all those various blonde heads.

Roars, Names, and Slapstick

A little video of the girls, hi-lighting Simone. When you ask Simone what her name is, she says, “Cu-Cu-Culkin” – because Annika always says Macauley Culkin (who is in the Nutcracker ballet video they love to watch) as “Macauley Cu-Cu-culkin”.

Totally Random Girl Narrated (mostly) Photo Update

Serena and her fluffy soft pink slippers (she chose this picture to put in this update and uploaded it herself!) Happy Simone – playing with her new choo choo train spinning top from Grammy for Christmas Aunt Nancy! Reading, as often, to a riveted crowd.

Oma and Nana Visit!

Oma (my Gramma) and Nana came to visit! Nothing beats the unstructured time of out of town visiting, especially with Norma’s generous and kind hospitality. They stayed next door at Norma’s house but could walk over to our house with great ease for dinner, visiting, various item exchanges… and we did the same. This arrangement […]

Happy Halloween!

  Wingless fairies in beautiful gowns made with love and labor by Grammy, from lace curtains out of the family cabin in Canada. Shiny handmade vests and matching shoe covers, too (and the sewing maching broke early in the game so there is much handsewing in these pretty fancies.) The wings were probably the most […]

Manzanita – Our Oregon Coast House Swap

 I love Craigslist. I have loved Craigslist for many years because it stands for so many cool things: free collaboration, community, recycling, good deals, trusting others, simplicity… and now I love Craigslist infinitely more because it was the matchmaker for us and this unbelievably beautiful experience we had on the Oregon coast just under two […]
