Sorry it’s been a while between posts.

It’s been busy around here.

Not only have there been twenty new digits to examine in detail…

… but there’s also been a fresh head in town that needed to be thoroughly sniffed and smooched.

There have been poignant maternal moments to absorb and lock in…

… stories to share*…

…and the privilege of a four-generation gathering to enjoy.

There have been giggles to prompt and family resemblances to sleuth out.

But most of all…

…there have been those precious moments that make a lifetime that needed to be caught and tucked carefully away in our hearts.

Plus, about three weeks ago the shower curtain AND towel rack crashed down violently in the bathroom within about seven seconds of each other, leading not only to a mild heart attack, new towel rack, lighting fixture, and toilet paper holder, but also to new drapes, bed linens, and a complete re-painting of two whole rooms and several miscellaneous walls throughout the condo. The rest of the walls and all the carpeting are next.

Like I said, we’ve been busy.

*Thanks for the beautiful photo, Great-Aunt Sandi!

You’re welcome. I hadn’t seen that picture of dad and Noah. I guess great grandma’s thumb tasted pretty good.
How about a blog on your “newly acquired” household items. (couldn’t think of how to spell the furn…word). You could make a pretty good cartoon with the “crashes.”

La Famiglia. Priceless. (Beautimous Maximus.) Proof enough for me of a benevolent universal designer with a keen aesthetic eye.
