Week 48 (November 24th-30th): Timber!

Posted on

Another tree post, but this one is a bit different.

I was getting ready for work when I heard a “crack” but I wasn’t sure what it was. The bedroom windows were fogged up so I couldn’t see into the backyard. No one else in the house seemed to notice anything and I quickly dismissed what I heard. But when I came into the kitchen, I couldn’t dismiss the tree down in the backyard. It’s been dead since we’ve lived here and honestly, I’m surprised it didn’t go last October during hurricane Sandy. I guess we are lucky it was a cold, windy morning and no one was outside when it happened. Doubly lucky that it didn’t hit the house! And an added bonus (thanks to Jeff and his friend) is that we now have lots of firewood for our chiminea and fireplace.

Week 47 (November 17th-23rd): The Invisible Tree House

Posted on

Caroline is still all about writing. She loves to ask us how to spell words for her “poems” or the names of her friends. She recently discovered tape so lately all her notes and art work can be found on walls, chairs and doors throughout the house. She’s even moved on to taping messages out side of the house. This notes says “tree house.” It’s unclear to us if she is requesting a tree house be built here or if she is just merely pretending.

Tree house---where?

Tree house—where?

Week 46 (November 10th-November 16th): Birthday Boy

Posted on

Yup, Liam had his FOURTH birthday this week. He’s not a little baby anymore (hasn’t been for ages anyway) but yes, I will always think of him as my little boy. My little boy that likes to create weapons out of just about any material (today a Q-tip was a weapon), builds vehicles with real Lego’s and is such a smarty pants that I’m certain he’s got a degree in “Knowing-It-All” But no worries! He still wants to marry me when he’s older and today he was signing “Hush Little Baby” while he played with a “zip-line” that he made. Yup, I love that little guy!

Happy 4th Birthday!
