In the last 48 hours

I’ve made five pies, hosted about 25 people for Piemas, gone on the first walk of the spring, had five people spend the night, and woke up in the morning to discover my entry area redone.

Exciting! It would be even more fun if I didn’t have a nasty cold. I just hope that I didn’t share it with anyone. I washed my hands a gazillion times and covered all my everythings, so here’s hoping!

Anyway, you don’t get a real blog post. Instead, you get a picture post. In this month’s thrilling installment we have:

– Awesome cardboards spaceships at the table
– Silly boys on laundry baskets
– Thane playing Angry Birds with grandma
– Grey hanging around with some rapscallion
– Jessica, also associated with said rapscallion, and the combinations reading books
– Piemas
– A family portrait (because the last picture of all four of us was taken last spring)
– Surprise!
– Playing with the light settings
– First playground of the spring

  1. I am going to mug your husband for the shirt! Octopi! That is awesome.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures. Looks like things are finally starting to warm up in Stoneham.


  2. i was entirely unsurprised to see your mother-in-law in the pics for pi(e)mas. she seems to be around when things like re-doing of rooms just kind of happens. and i LOVE adam’s shirt in the family photo.


    1. The cause and effect are backwards here…. the remodels happen BECAUSE she’s here. “Oh, it’s no problem at all to just take up the carpet here and repaint…. I could have it done before you get home from work!”

      Crazy part is she’s often right.


      1. I didn’t get my wording right–I intended to convey an observation of the very cause and effect you describe.


  3. Looks like there are a couple of others I need to fight for Adam’s shirt!!

    I’m so sorry we couldn’t be there – we missed you all!
