I experienced my first eathquake last night. I first thought something had crashed into the house. Then I thought earthquake? Looking at the news today confirmed my suspicions. Here is a link to the article. It was a 2.6 on the Richter scale.

Uniquely U

A local photography studio was doing a food drive on Halloween: free photos of the kids in costume if you bring in a canned good. You can see (and order) the photos at the Uniquely U Photography site. (Click on 'Continue' and it should go to the right photos.) One photo is Sam Gribley from My Side of the Mountain, one is Jules, and one is Sam with a Garden Gnome. Kudos to Melissa, who was the only one to guess who they were dressed as. She emailed me that Orion was the kid from the book he was reading and that Jules was one of the seven dwarfs. Not bad guesses, eh? The photos will only be at the Uniquely U site until December 17, so go see them fast.

Happy Halloween!

Anyone care to guess what the kids were for Halloween this year?

Jules Turns One!

Time just flew by and now our baby is one. (Actually it's taken so long for me to post this, that now he is thirteen months old.) Here are some birthday photos. He was sick on his birthday, so we celebrated a few days later, but the reminiscing started a day early. We recreated the feast that put me into labor. As I got into bed I announced with tears in my eyes, this time last year my water was breaking. A week later when Isaac and I just celebrated our sixth year anniversary and we both agreed that Jules's splashy birth has been our fondest memory so far.
