Just got through BBQ'ing with some neighbors over at our place. Made some stuffed jalapenos that were fresh from my earthbox (they had cream cheese, cheddar, and bacon). Also had some grilled bacon-avocado bites. Grilled garlic shrimp. Some chicken legs. Hot dogs. Sausage. Grilled pineapple. Salad. Beans. Yum.

Another year gone. Wow.

Christmas this year was really nice. I've got lots of great pics in the Christmas 2008 folder. This is one of mt favorite shots:


One really neat highlight was trading my jalapenos for various things. We left with our jalapenos and came back with jalapenos, satsumas, oranges, nectarines, kumquats, lemons, pecans, and blackberries. I gave away huge bags of fruits to lots of friends, family, and neighbors. The best part was seeing all those boys in the back of my truck eating oranges and satsumas until their bellies swole up!

Of course, it was great to see all 6 of the boys together. This will be a true force to be reckoned with in a few years.


Happy New Year to everyone.

I know I haven't posted an update in the while. Surprisingly, it's not because I don't have time, like you might think.

No, it's actually because we have set our machines to sleep/hibernate to save electricity. We have saved lots of power.

But one interesting side-effect is that since my machine is usually off, and I have to deliberately turn it on, I use it less. And since I use it less, I tend to get a few things done before I'm called away, and then it goes to sleep again.

So, I have had time to post, but just have been doing other things instead. Somehow, that feels like a good thing.

But, to get you up to date:

  • Charlie is in to everything. He is crawling, pulling himself up, and walking along as he holds on.

  • Neo went on vacation with Nanna and Poppa and a couple of other families. He had a really great time and came home with a pet hermit crab that he named, "Hermit".

  • Christian and I made a do-it-yourself Earthbox. An earthbox is a pretty neat little invention for growing produce that uses minimal water and fertilizer and requires a minimal amount of tending to. I'm really excited about it and how easy it is. We have started some cucumbers, tomatoes, and jalapenos. If you would like to learn about the earthbox, check the website here. For a version you can build youself, just search on google. We made one in about 30 minutes.

  • Neo and I have been playing Zelda on Wii. Neo is really good. We managed to work through the entire game/story. The game involves lots of reading, which was great summer reading practice for him. We just finished the game this morning with Neo beating Ganon. It was really exciting.

  • There are some new pictures in various folders. Just click around.


So, that's it in a nutshell. Things are really good around here.
