Twas The Night Before Christmas

A little peek into the night before Christmas, 2015.

Finn's first Lego build

What is more impressive is that Finn was missing pieces so he had to find other pieces to improvise.

Finn's First Ride

Finn hasn't had much time on the bike with the remodel and craziness of three... he had a few good solo attempts but tonight he was really nailing it. Still needs to work on stopping a bit more.

11 Years Old


Time flies by fast.   It definitely feels like just the other day, we were in Pacifica and I was walking Rupert up the hill for his morning walk.  Kim started have contractions but we thought we would have more time... by the time I got back from the walk with Rupert - the contractions were super close together.... a mad dash up to the hospital but only to wait for 12 hours as Owen was not quite ready to come.  He needed a bit of help and convincing and finally - we just had to reach right in and bring him into the world.   And we can't imagine a world without him (or his sister or brother :) The birthdays fly by - from his first and now on his eleventh.

Tessa's first attempt


Tessa paddle out with me beyond the inside white water to the outside.  We waited and caught a few on our bellies.  She even tried to stand up on one.

Best day ever (for Finn so far this week)

Started with pancakes followed by trip to LA to see and "meet" The Wild Kratts then char boiled burger at Astro Burger and a celebratory sundae at Menchies (because Finn touched the soccer ball ten times during his game)

Tessa's Dance Performance

Tessa's first year of Tap and second year of Ballet. These were recorded during her rehearsal. She absolutely crushed it during her actual performance. So amazing to see how far she has come in one year. Tap Ballet

Ice Cream didn't stand a chance
