Ryan's First Movie

Jeff has spent a LOT of time making this special movie about Ryan--from the VERY beginning through his first moments home from the hospital. I hope you enjoy it.

Apple Picking

We shot this back in October. I'm learning more advanced technological maneuvers with the computer. It's a longer clip, but quite funny.

More Indiana Photos





Merry Christmas! We spent a leisurely day in our PJ's opening gifts and eating at will. We had a fire in the fireplace and I played with dinosaurs, a fire truck, an airplane, and took a nap. A highly successful day overall.
Here are more photos from our Indiana trip. Enjoy!

Happy Hippy Christmas!


We are renting a tree this year from the Adopt-A-Stream Foundation. It is a living tree that will be planting on a streambank after the Christmas holiday. Small trees work best for restoration work, so there weren't any big ones from which to choose. We got this little gal and gave her an ego boost with a table underneath and a fancy tree skirt to hide her ugly 5 gallon-bucket-bottom. We're also more green in terms of energy use this year, as the tiny tree can only handle one strand of lights. Only the lightest and most special ornaments made it on the tree. Here's to a greener, more simple Christmas!

Christmas Trip









We're back! We survived the flights, cold weather, and bad tempers to visit our family for an early birthday/holiday celebration last week. Here are some highlights.
Ryan loves riding horses and tractors. Grammy and Grampy have two horses, Sabi and Jewel. He just had to ride BOTH of them! The tractor would not start due to the cold, but the horn still worked, much to his delight. The bottom two photos are Great Grandad getting "nosies" and Great Grandma holding Ryan.
I just downloaded 93 photos from the last two weeks, so more posting to come!
