Here's Andrew at my company's holiday party! He asked Santa for a fly fishing rod!

This is our new baby, Mabel, whom we got from Tara's House Animal Rescue. She is a spirited handful and a very loving dog. She was originally found as a stray in Jackson County, WV, where she was taken to a shelter where they put down animals within 24 hours. We got her in just a nick of time, lovely girl that she is.

Thought I would say hi!

I haven't posted in a year. I have been very busy with school and work!

Allegheny College - 25th reunion

In June, I had my 25th reunion with some friends at Allegheny College, Meadville, PA, which is my mother's hometown.

Here we are, stuffing our faces at Hank's like piglets. I am the extra large one in the skirt.


toad on the hose

A few days ago, I was about to water my garden, and who did I run into but this little toad who was not afraid of me at all! Cute!

Hot dog water

The other day our son Andrew commented that our dog Violet smelled like "old hot dog water." I thought that was pretty clever for a seven-year-old. He is getting really excited about the summer. We are going to vacation at the beach in Lewes, Delaware this year, which has become a bit of a family tradition. He is also enrolled in camp for the summer. I had been hoping that for three of those weeks he'd concede to bicycle camp, where you learn to ride without training wheels, but he's having none of it!

Good hair day?

Here's a cute photo of my two-year-old nephew, Nathaniel, who is definitely having a good hair day. He kind of reminds me of a dandelion gone to seed!

Hamster Luv

My son wants a hamster. Not me. He likes to go to pet stores and take photos of hamsters, cages, wheels, etc. This weekend we hosted the school hamster, Cinnamon. I kind of liked the little critter, but every time he saw me he ran!
