  • Tabby’s Birthday Part Un

    2015-02-28 20.03.51

    As I mentioned, we celebrated Tabby’s first bit of birthday at our favorite home away from home, Vail. This is one of Tabby’s favorite traditions and far be it from us to deny her time skiing. It’s something we all love. Even if we can’t get a halfway decent family skiing selfie. Our festivities were […]

    When the kids were little, we started the tradition of only doing birthday parties for them on even age years. Sometimes I wish we’d done one on odd and one on even so I’d just do one party every year instead of 2 every other year, but such is life. This means that last year […]

    It was truly a great weekend – fall’s last hurrah! We had many wonderful adventures – riding our bikes to the movie theatre to see Big Hero 6, cooking up some delicious food in the kitchen, cleaning out some messy corners and, in my case, heading to Denver’s Botanic Garden not just once but twice […]

  • The Haps … September 2014

    Well lots has been going on, but not in the orderly, organized way that lends itself to blogging and photo taking (although I’ve done quite a bit of that). We’ve been settling into the school routine. It is pretty different from when we had one kid in “real” school, I’ll say that. It’s probably not […]

    The house is coming along nicely! We have been making “diligent and expedited” progress as we say in the proposal writing biz. We felt like we really turned the corner on the main level a couple of nights ago when we got all the window coverings hung (Matt) and the office unpacked (me). Since then […]

  • Tabby is SEVEN!


    Just a couple of weeks ago, we celebrated Tabby’s 7th birthday. Gah! I can hardly believe it. We don’t do parties every year – they’re just way too much ado – and this was an off year, so the birthday girl requested we go to Vail for her birthday. She wanted to ski and she […]

  • Playing Catch-Up

    The kids were feeling a little Grinchy.

    Well things are rolling along sometimes fairly normally. The kids are doing great, growing and learning by leaps and bounds. We register Ben for kindergarten next month. I can hardly believe it. Tabby has been having fun with spirit week at her school (see green hair above) and even Ben got in on the action. […]

  • Halloween


    Halloween was fun. I got up in the weeee smalls and went into work early (partially because I couldn’t sleep and partially because I had a ton to do). The beginning of the week was manic, but it ended well because I took off by 11:30 on Thursday and took ALL OF FRIDAY off. YAY. […]
