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…

Tis the Season

It feels like the holidays around here. Our elf Charles Kringle Webber has arrived, the house is decorated inside and out with lights and decor, and we've already viewed the original How The Grinch Stole Christmas. There's a list of Christmas movies  waiting in the queue for the remainder of the holiday season. We've also spent time baking cookies,…

Little Surprises

The temperature has been perfect lately, and give's the sense of the approaching holidays. We've switched our attire from dresses, short's and flip flops, to jeans, sweaters and boots. We've appreciated several nights of cool weather by an outdoor fire, while roasting marshmallow's, and we've definitely taken advantage of warm Starbuck's drinks. Last weekend I…

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…

Thanksgiving Road Trip

This year we spent Thanksgiving with our PA family, the Webber side. I was very opposed to traveling via car to PA, but Doug felt it would be best considering delays that often happen when traveling via plane during the busy holiday season. Also, the fact that he's always on a plane, and the girls…

Zombie Cheerleader and Vampire Kitty

This last Halloween was  the first Halloween the girls veered from princess dresses, or animal print. Both girls wanted to be scary this year, which was shocking because they're usually the scared ones. Sara decided on playing the role of a zombie cheerleader. Sophie always wants to be a cat (I think she's been a cat…

Labor Day Weekend

During the Labor day weekend, we took a quick excursion to the Hilton Orlando for a little pool play, sun, Blue Man group and time with our Goddaughter Harper and her family, for her 5th birthday. I left school early on Friday and then snatched the girls from school before lunch time. Then we left…

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…

It’s Christmas Time!

It's Christmas time! School is out for the girls and momma! We are loving the break, sleeping in, freedom from homework and playing together. Last week I sat through two days of orientation and spent one day of training on the floor at the new hospital I'll be working at, Mease Dunedin Hospital. The unit…

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,…

Pirate Princess and Kitty Ballerina

Every year we walk downtown to Main Street on Halloween for trick or treat. Main Street is closed to car traffic on Halloween and all of the local businesses and shops pass out candy. The girls had fun searching for friends from school, candy and crazy costumes. Searching for candy: We found friends with great…

Taking a Break!

Last weekend was mostly all about studying for a big exam that took place on Monday afternoon, but there were glimpses of greatness with my family intertwined. Doug bought me (and the girls) The Little Mermaid, since its my  our favorite movie and its finally available for purchase. Its been in the vault for like 25 years,…

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…

St. Patrick’s Day Weekend

This weekend we blared Irish tunes on Pandora and opened the windows in the front room because most of our weekend was spent in the front yard. Now that I'm working, I love being home on the weekends. I wouldn't care if we never left our little paradise. On Saturday, Doug hung a swing in the…

Like 500 Christmas Pictures (2 weeks stuffed into 1 post)!

Two weekends ago began with Friday night dress rehearsal for Nutcracker. Sara was a soldier in the show this year, with the special role of the "one" soldier who gets killed. She was very happy about that role. She's a really great little performer. Saturday we attended the annual Harbor parade downtown. We've only missed…
