Hey, everyone! Greetings from survival mode! January has been brutal, right? At least these past few days have. Here are a few of the things the kids have been up to since the start of 2019. There’s definitely been a lot of indoor activities, such as art projects and playing with all of the glorious… Continue reading January 2019 Happenings
Hi there! We are two months into 2018 and for the most part, I’m liking it. It has been a lot of time indoors, a lot of shoveling (thanks, Joe!), washing off germs, and much cozying up by the fireplace. As it happens every year, I’m anxious to leave winter behind and move onto spring.… Continue reading Jan + Feb 2018
Every time I watch this video, I think “Good God, I love this child!” And then I’m also thankful that we have possibly the most patient dog in existence. Thirdly, I’m thankful that we won’t have to purchase a pony in the near future because, apparently, Maya is sufficient for now.

(Hey, trudging through snow gets… Continue reading Pretending that snow is still cool
Joe bought himself an early Christmas present, so now we have a UFO flying around our living room (which Diablo hates because he can’t catch or eat it). He’ll need something to do while C and I are in Chicago next week, and this appears to be it.
We are currently dog sitting for Sophie, and Cece couldn’t be more enthusiastic about it. She keeps grabbing her shoes and Sophie’s leash and insisting we walk her (ALL DAY LONG). I suppose that since we have two dogs that are nearly 60 pounds each, it’s quite the novelty to have a tiny dog in… Continue reading The tiniest dog sitter that you ever did see
Now that the season of mud and rain has passed, we can let the dogs enjoy the airport dog park once again. (We just have to make sure that Diablo doesn’t tresspass on to any airport runways.) Believe it or not, Maya is going to be six this year. Her age really doesn’t show, does it? If you… Continue reading Dog Park Season
