Yes, Life is GOOD – and very, very busy (both at home and at work)!! For fun, this past weekend, we went down to the little central California town of Cayucos to see a movie showing of our friend Sam’s latest documentary. What documentary you may ask? Well, this one: Sam’s latest documentary tells the [...]

We’re staying in Lake Buena Vista near Disney Village…er…well, it’s now called Disney Marketplace. This is my first time visiting Kissimmee on vacation!! I mean I did go to High School here, and my [...]
In case you’ve missed my Facebook obsession with using PicMonkey to create spooky Halloween photos, I thought I’d share them here. I seriously could spend all day creating these – well, if I had all day. But, you don’t need all day because you can create them quickly too! Even Bubba got in on the [...]
On the one hand, it’s super exciting…on the other, how did time fly by so fast!! Not to dwell on that, here’s what made his 4th birthday super fun!

See the beautiful bride above? That’s my Aunt Ellen (she’s also my Godmother). This past weekend, her daughter Amanda (my cousin) got married in a gorgeous ceremony in North Carolina. I wasn’t able to attend the wedding, but was so grateful for Facebook and the ability to follow the day’s events through photographs posted there. [...]
How do you put yourself first? How does taking time for yourself help make you happier? These are the current “Life Well Lived” Getting Happy questions? WOW – these are big ones. Questions that, unlike Bubba above who only lives in the moment, I don’t think I’ve even mastered the answer to yet – though [...]
Picture the scene - a school gymnasium…. a first dance (and auction for the parents)… and a 3-year old who’s not afraid to strut his stuff (even though his older brother is the one who actualy goes to the school) You have…. WESTLY – THE DANCE MACHINE!!! He’s not afraid to show you how it’s done [...]
I was at this game, less than a week ago, taking these photographs…. I uploaded them last night and started reviewing them this morning…. and then realized I have just one question….. When did Hunter get so BIG?!?!? Expect more photos of his games in the future, as I contemplate this question thoroughly. [...]
As you may have noticed, this week I was gone and away from my computer a lot! You see, our anniversary falls every year over the President’s Day weekend, so we always have a bit of extra time off that we like to spend together. We actually picked this date to get married based [...]
My Mother-In-Law began hospice care yesterday. Needless to say there is much sadness in my family right now. I’ve been no stranger to death in my life and the pain and sadness that comes along with it…and the grieving that follows. I’m by no means an expert in what to do or how to behave, [...]
AND for the BUBBA lovers: Many Blessings to you and your’s this holiday season and hopes for lots of joy in the New Year!
Today I’m going to take a moment to brag a bit about my oldest daughter, Libby. A couple of weeks ago she mentions to us, “I’m getting an award at a ceremony in November 8th, would you guys like to come?”. Well, of course we do. She mentions it so casually – which is so [...]
Westly just received a birthday gift from his awesome Grandma Pat…this amazing SOCK MONKEY! The boys just love it…especially because it’s taller than Westly is. Taller now, that is. I’m sure we’ll watch him pass up the sock monkey (and us) over the coming years! Oh, why do they have to grow up?!?! [...]
I love our little town of Los Gatos!! We have family friendly events for EVERYTHING! My favorite is the Halloween celebration for Dogs!!
