Halloween 2012

A witch and a girl pirate conquer the world…or the two blocks surrounding their house…

Girl Pirate

 

 

There’s no candy in my cauldron…

 
 

 
 

Ahoy, matey!

 
 

If you keep taking pictures of me, I’ll curse you

 
 

(it is hard to get children who are excited about trick-or-treating to sit still…)

 
 

(…very hard…)

 
 

 
 

 
 

Witches

 
 

Off to plunder more treasure…


They were fairies…

 

…although, fleece jackets combined with the hat Ida insisted on wearing did lead one person to ask her, “Are you a hiker?”

 

I'm a fairy, damn it.

 

(I always say that these posts are for the grandparents, but I ask all twelve of my readers to admit it…you all love pics of the Wee Sisters Neerland.)

 

Elder Fairy

 

Treat...

 

...or trick

 

Super fairy power activate!

 

Daddy's little girl

 

Ready to go

 

Fairies in action

 

Alright, everyone say "Christmas card!"


How to make the cabin even better

In the past few days, there were a lot of photos taken at that little house on a frozen lake, and I’m sure that some of them will wend their way onto the interwebs, but I felt the need to share the only pictures I made right away.

It’s very important, you see, because they are pictures of…

PUPPIES!!!

  • Because the more dogs there are, the better that place is.


    Time flies when you’re unemployed

    I didn’t realize it had been so long. Unemployment is a blessing and a curse. I’ve had the time to devote to the new nimbus space, which needs a lot of attention right now. It’s given me a chance to re-assess and try to figure out what I actually want to be doing. It didn’t really help out with my ability to shop for Christmas, but I didn’t miss the mall or the crazy. The holiday was more about family and being together, which is what it should be.

    So, here are some photos from the last few weeks…

    This is how Kubla sleeps. At least his butt is comfortable.

  • Jasper says hello to Kubla

  • Kubla's ridiculously large Christmas Bone (Thanks, J&C!)

  • Grandma Momo helps Ida open a present

  • Happy Holidays!


    Trick-or-Cute

    One little girl was a cowgirl.

  • Her baby sister was the cow.

  • When little ones have had candy bars, attempts at family photos get difficult.

  • Happy Halloween!

  • Youtube sucks, and WordPress won’t let me upload a video from Vimeo, so click if you want to see the cuteness that is Vivi saying “Twick or Tweat!”


    This post is full of cute

    Thanks, Grandma and Grandpa!

  • It took more than a year, but we finally have our own little Paris bistro on the balcony.

  • We discovered this evening that Alex’s “plastic Riedel” glasses have multiple uses.

    Just like mom's!

  • He already knows to hold it by the stem. Then he fed the coaster to the dog.

  • Josh read Jasper a story. Judging by the photo in the book, I’m not sure if this book contains appropriate subject matter.

  • Then it was time for drum circle!

  • Jasper displays his mad whisk skillz.


    Genevieve’s 2nd Birthday

  • It was our niece’s 2nd birthday a couple of weeks ago.

  • Hangin' with Grandpa and Grandpa.

  • Carrie and Vivi

  • Of course, we sang Happy Birthday to Genevieve. I have never seen someone less interested in being sung to. It was awesome.
