Christmas is coming.

The foreboding future has not gotten hold of our Christmas cheer. Todd is doing a good job keeping perspective and me grounded. Our little town throws a great holiday gathering, there were ice sculptures, sparkly lights, carolers, reindeer, horse draw carriages and fireworks. The weather was perfect it snowed all day, blanketing the park in a fresh new layer of snow. The boys also went to see the big man a few times this weekend. Wyatt was brave enough to tell him (twice) he wanted a train.

Cross your fingers.

So here is a fun contest at Design Mom, and it is way more likely you will win than the lottery and it is free. Good Luck.

Save our handmade toys.


This is Hans; friend, comfort and lovely to Wyatt. Hans was made with love by Berrie of MoonChild Studios and he really is a daily part of our life. There really is something special about things that are handmade and we love supporting little companies and businesses who create beautiful things. Unfortunately there is a potential law coming into effect that will close down most of the small American toy manufactures. The law is to protect us from unsafe toys, but the required testing will be too expensive for the small toy operations. Please check out this site and voice your opinion to change the law before it goes into effect.



A rather hard week...

We started our Thanksgiving Break by ordering WHITE! cabinets for the kitchen and then made the journey to Rochester to start in the Thanksgiving festivities. I am really proud that Todd and I were able to come to an agreement on style and design. While celebrating at a festive pre-T day party I got news from my parents that my grandmother, Babci had passed away. I will miss her very much. So our Thanksgiving plans changed from relaxing to another journey down to Connecticut to attend Babci's funeral. Exhausted we returned on Saturday night and recouped a bit on Sunday to face the week. And what a week was in store for us.

In a nut shell my project at work was cancelled and our future here in Upstate NY is very uncertain. Needless to say we were not expecting this and we had to cancel the kitchen. So I am looking for jobs, mourning my grandmother and mourning the potential loss of the life we stated to build here. We are now in the what else can we do phase...so let me know if you need a polymer chemist.

To a better week ahead...
