Two years ago.

Two years ago, my nephew Edgerton sent us this amazing little piece of art entitled, “Octopod for Shellington & Captain Barnacles”…

And it’s still one of my favorites and it’s still hanging in my office…

I adore this little piece of art.😀📝🐙❤️

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

We’re so very thankful for a great many things today.
Among them is being blessed with amazing family.

Look at that feast…

It was delicious!

We hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving!

 Gobble, gobble. 😀🦃❤️

One year ago.

One year ago today, I received this drawling from my nephew entitled, “Octopod for Shellington & Captain Barnacles” and it’s still one of my very favorites…

Edgerton’s early works. Thanks, Timehop! 😀🦕❤️

One year ago.

One year ago today, we were watching Western Michigan University hockey on TV and saw my parents right there, front and center…

That was pretty neat. Thanks for the memories, Timehop! 😀🦕❤️

Pure Michigan.

We drove up to Michigan to get together with my whole family for a long weekend…

We stayed in the same lake house in South Haven we stayed in two summers ago

We had a really good time. It was great to see everyone and celebrate birthdays. We learned all about My Little Ponies, dun-duns and the little song to tune a ukulele. After the best way to use Google translate, we learned about happy Japanese field mice and beers from Japan.

And we got some awesome new artwork for our refrigerator…

Like I said, it was a very fun trip. Thanks, mom & dad for making this terrific trip possible and getting everyone together. 😀❤️🏖️

I also was tinkering with some timelapse videos that I posted to my Instagram.

Happy Easter!

HAPPY EASTER! We had a very nice Easter Sunday. Genifer made me this really sweet little Easter basket…

We got a wonderful Easter card from JJVE with some terrific artwork from Violette…

Here’s a photo Jeannette sent of Violette with her artwork and the bunny she drew us…

And here’s a photo Josh sent of Violette with her bunny. It was the bunny we sent her from Happy Groundhog Studio

Later, Genifer’s mom came over and my parents came down from Michigan for the night on their way out east to do some antiquing and they brought some delicious Pizza King pizzas down with them…

YUM! Pizza King pizza is sooo good. My mom also brought down a very delicious cherry cobbler. It was a very nice surprise to get to spend Easter evening with my parents and Genifer’s mom. It turned out to be a really nice Easter. 😀🐰🐣❤️

On a personal note, I need to take more photos when people come over or when we do things with other people. I need to make more of a conscious effort to make sure I take at least one photo of everyone together. I really need to do a better job of that. I just 😀📷❤️

My two very best friends. 😀❤️

Seen and noted.

We got a very nice card in the mail with some new school pictures of my niece and nephew, Violette and Edgerton. Also included with the photos was this amazing little piece of art entitled, “Octopod for Shellington & Captain Barnacles”…

Awe. Some. Our refrigerator has a new piece of art. Taken with Instagram. 😀📝🐙❤️

Meanwhile in Michigan…

Tonight, my parents went to see #11 Western Michigan take on Colorado College at Lawson Ice Arena in Kalamazoo. We tuned in to watch the game on CBS Sports. While we were watching, we kept an eye out for my parents. I thought I recognized the white stripes on my dad’s jacket in the crowd…

And then coming back from a commercial, there were my parents…

It was pretty neat to see my mom & dad on TV. And it was a really good hockey game too. Western defeated Colorado College 3-2 in overtime! 😀📺🏒❤️

It was a really great weekend.

THis morning JJVE headed out on the next leg of their epic road trip…

And Greg and Shannon flew back home to Oakland this evening.

It was really wonderful to spend the weekend with the whole family, to get to see everyone and catch-up but it went by way too fast. We’ll have to do it again very soon. 😀❤️
