My wonderful wife and kids made holiday treats for the neighborhood. Highlights delivering them included the old man in his underwear and Bennett screaming "There are NO NUTS!!" as a reminder from his mom at every house.

We've been obsessed with Richard Scarry around here. How about at your house?

To Boston With Love

Sooo... our Nikon camera broke. Specifically the lens, thanks to a couple rowdy kids and some full hands. I've been posting tons of photos on Instagram instead (I'm starlightsound on that site if you feel like following me). 

One awesome project that has been on Instagram and Flickr is the #tobostonwithlove, a collaborative project to create flags for Peace, Hope and Love following the marathon bombing.

Here's my finished contribution:

Love to all!

It's already March?!

Good grief, where is the time going?

February was filled with knitting, baking, moving Norah out of our bedroom and into her shared room with Bennett, some more knitting, lots of books and winter weather advisories, a visit to Hive 13 (and possibly many more visits), a bit of sewing, and even more knitting.

We promise to come out of hibernation with the beginnings of spring... the snowdrops are already blooming and the bulbs are beginning to push through the earth... so it's time for us to do the same and push through this gloomy Ohio winter into the light.

Baking day

 With temperatures in the single digits we have been spending LOTS of time indoors.
 The most recent Christmas acquisition of a cookie playset has kept this girl of mine happy for hours.
 Here you can see these awesome felted slippers I made this fall. They are definitely getting put through their paces and holding up well.  I used puffy paint on the soles for traction.

And I've been doing some nerdy knitting for myself. What's better than Tardis Socks??

Post Flu Holiday Photos

Well, we have all been struggling the last week with the flu and other assorted upper respiratory crud. No fun. So here's a few shots from Christmas Eve, complete with Butters, the newest "cousin!" (not ours, but Katie and Mike's pup!)

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!


We shall be moving soon, somewhere my peppers and beard will be appreciated.

EDIT: We are NOT moving!! B just fantasizes about curing meats and riding uncomfortable bicycles.
