Easter Weekend

Easter weekend was a weekend of relaxation and family time. On Saturday morning the wind was strong and the water choppy, creating unsuitable weather for boating, and ideal weather for kiting. We decided to play around town for the day, and it started with dog walking our neighbors dogs Lilli and Marcy. Then we walked across the brand new…

Middle School & Third Grade

The girls went back to school about 3 weeks ago. Sara started middle school, and Sophie 3rd grade. Of course Sara was all nerves the first day, and rightfully so,  with a new environment, new classmates, lots of teachers, 4 minutes to get from class to class, and figuring out when to run to her…

Head Shots- 5th and 2nd Grade

Head shots of the girls were taken at Daddy's studio a week ago, to replace the counterfeit smiles, blah background, and shifted head pose shots, characteristic of the classic school portrait.  While there's something special about school photo's, the contracted photographer the school uses,  doesn't care care about my children in the same way we do. Doug…

O’ Christmas Tree

This holiday season was one of our busiest yet, but amongst the business, we made time for holiday fun. We decorated our real tree and our silver tree. We arranged the Nutcrackers atop the little wood burning stove, and the dining room hutch. The girls and I Christmas shopped for Daddy together, and enjoyed lunch at…

I Love You Daddy, Oh Yes I Do..

Although it's been some time since I've wanted to write this post, I figure better late then never. Our hours here in the Webber home are filled with school work, ballet and tap classes and endless studying for mommy. The girls are doing well in 4th and 1st grade, and I only have 3 more…

Weekend in the Harbor

It was another great weekend in the harbor. We started the weekend downtown for the monthly 3rd Friday festivities. Once a month, many Safety Harborites and friends from surrounding areas gather and stroll down Main street downtown (which is closed to car traffic) to eat, drink, listen to live music at the gazebo, catch up…

First Day Back

Today Sara started 4th grade and Sophie started 1st grade. I start the 3rd semester of nursing school tomorrow. It's hard moving back into a strict schedule after a relaxing and lazy summer, but we will become accustomed to it after a week or so, I hope.The weekend was divine. It was a weekend of…

Sara’s 9th Birthday Celebration’s

Sara B is officially 9, as of Tuesday June 24th @ 4:45 p.m. At that point in the day Doug, the girls and I waited in line to board the big yellow circular raft at Busch Gardens; the Congo River Rapids ride. It was Sophie's favorite ride. Early that morning, on our way to the park,…

Summertime Gladness

It's summertime and we're feeling summertime gladness. Life without early mornings, studying, and busy jam-packed schedules is exactly what we needed. Here's a compilation of pictures from our summer vacation so far: The girls performed in their end of the year dance recital on Sunday June 1st. They looked gorgeous and performed beautifully. Daddy travled to NYC for…

It’s a New Year. 2014!

Sara and Sophia, As you look back through the year 2013, I hope you remember the great times and most of all how blessed you are! When I look back through the year of pictures, I feel a sense of gratitude. Yes, life is not always perfect, but choose to focus on the wonderful times..….this is…

A Frozen (but warm) Thanksgiving

The last time Sara saw snow, she was 4 years old. She loved it, except the 5 layers that she had to put over her skin. Sophie was too young to remember snow. The better part of this November was spent dreaming and talking with the girls about cold and snow, flying on an airplane,…

She’s Me!

This afternoon Sophie and I bonded while watching a wound dressing change video tutorial. She's me. She will definitely be a nurse someday. As soon as I pressed play on the computer to activate the tutorial, she stood watching intently, asking pertinent questions along the way (critical thinking is important). Then after a minute, she…

Spring Break

Here's a whole basket full of pictures describing our spring break: Sophie's preschool Easter egg hunt: Chalk Festival downtown: Ikea trip  for bar items, mugs, shot glasses and such for our new/vintage tiki bar (I'll post pics of it soon). Thanks Ted!! Whenever we eat at Ikea I think of the very first time Doug…

Feeling Loved! Thank you!

A special little delivery just arrived at my door. Doug is out of town today, so he had Adam our friend and neighbor deliver this special birthday package to me this evening. Wow, this made my night! Coldstone ice cream cupcakes and Starbuck's cake pops from Doug, and a custom made gift bag specially designed by Adam.…

Windy Weather, But So Far, We Are Safe

Sophie is ready for the weather.  The girls have off school today due to Hurricane Isaac, which appears to be moving further away from us. We will be praying for the people (including family) in New Orleans as it heads their direction. The house smells delicious as the roast beef slow cooks in the slow…

German Chocolate, Gold Medal and New Wallets

Doug is finally home. Things feel complete now. Yesterday afternoon we headed to the airport to pick him up after his 10 day trip to London, Sweden and Germany. He was supposed to arrive home on Sunday night, but his flight was delayed due to bad weather. This made us all very sad. We arrived…
