“All I can do is read a book to stay awake. It rips my life away but it’s a great escape.” Shannon Hoon

I’ve been doing way too much reading lately mostly as a result of all of my holds at the library coming in at the same time. My favorites have been The Help, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, Age of Innocence, and Snowflower and the Secret Fan. I may actually be addicted to reading. I’ve found that there is a come down period after the final pages. I walk around in a fog as though I have been a time traveler and am newly acclimatizing to the modern world. Next up to read Vanity Fair, Water for Elephants and The Book Theif.

Sophie Jane



Sophie is three and as you can see from Libby's posting we had a great time. She is the best three year old in the world and I am completely objective. You'll notice on the video it sounds as if Frank Sinatra was invited to the party...that was me. Had I known the tape was rolling I would have ad libbed a little more. Let me also offer my apologies for the rest of the groups singing. I think they were trying to harmonize with me and with my vocal range it is just not possible. Don't believe me, I dare you to try. - posted by Matt

Sophie's birthday party. Paige and James and Esme came and celebrated with us. She got a beanbag chair, a piggy bank, her ears pierced, a Tinkerbell sticker book, and a lot of money.


Eden and Sophie dressed up in their ballet clothes. They had a hard time sharing the wings.

So, for my New Years Resolutions I am starting a blog and taking my vitamins. Here we are at Rattle Snake Lake in the fall. We love it here in Seattle and hopefully I will be posting better soon!! This week we got a new mac and I finally have access to a computer that is actually in the house! So we will see how advanced I can be at getting this blog up.
