This is the way the blog ends...

... not with a bang but a whimper.

For anyone faithful reader (or RSS reader) who is indeed faithful enough to still be checking here, thank you, but we clearly haven't been posting here, and don't see re-starting any time soon.

Kerry and I are both putting some stuff on Facebook, so that's the place if you'd like to find us online.

Thanks again for reading.

Family Roles

I was encouraging Katherine to climb the stairs.

Me: Come on, daughter!
Owen: She's not a daughter, she's a princess.
Me: Princesses are daughters, too. Do you know who princesses' moms and dads are?
Owen: Who?
Me: Queens and kings. And the brother of a princess is a prince. So if Katherine is a princess, who are you?
Owen: Darth Vader?

Today is our 11 year wedding anniversary! I'll have to try to scan some of our wedding photos as digital copies weren't really even an option back in 1999. Our wedding was lots of fun, and it was nice to finally be married, after being engaged for almost 2 years (due to living in different cities)!

Katherine milestone update

Katherine's second and third words are, respectively, "no" and "go". And speaking of going, last week, after months of accomplished cruising and weeks of free standing, she took her first steps.

Chef Owen

Owen took timeout from his dinner to make Katherine some noodles. "Making noodles" entailed getting coriander from the pantry, putting some in a pot in his play kitchen, stirring, pouring into the colander, and then pouring it into a few more pots besides. It was terribly thoughtful of him. Nonetheless, it was probably best that Katherine didn't try any of the noddles. (But I think that I get some bonus dad points for eating dry coriander and praising Owen's cooking.)
