ok. so here’s the stuff that happened in january, excluding spontaneous trips to western new york to watch the bills playoff game vs. the dolphins, isaac’s 16th birthday festivities, and the one cake i made. spoiler alert. the rest is sort of boring. but here goes. lets begin with some happenings while i was away […]
well. isaac is sixteen.that’s crazy, right? we kicked off his birthday festivities the weekend before his birthday, with a friend sleepover. anna made him a cookie cake and took the liberty of decorating it with a potato buffalo bills logo. (the backstory is that in josh allen’s rookie year, he was in an nfl promotional […]
whirlwind solo adventure to WNY.
with a pair of tickets to the bills game in hand (or saved to my phone using cyber space magic), i began preparing for my trek north for the big adventure. there was some debate about the entire family heading up for the weekend, but that would require missing school and a lot of logistical […]
christmas related activity of 2022
i think i mentioned it in my cookies post, but i really was not feeling the christmas spirit this year. i really don’t know what was up. maybe it’s because the kids are older and not really into the fun things we used to do. or because the pandemic has made everyone dead inside. but […]
miscellany in novembery.

school was in full swing by the time september rolled along. after a little bit of a rough (tired) start for hazel, she was LOVING it. her grade had a class picnic and i got to meet some other parents and some of her friends. she seems to be settling into the public school life […]
boring old august.
aside from our 10 day trip to western new york, august was pretty uneventful. leading up to the trip, we were getting ready for it. and when we got back, we moved into back to school mode. nothing very exciting, so proceed at your own risk (of boredom). firstly, in baking related news, anna has […]
