Aloha! Just stopping in to say hi from Maui. We're getting ready to go to a New Year's party with Judy's sister Claire. We'll be grilling lobsters on the beach! Tough way to ring in the new year...

Hope everyone is having fun. See you soon!

Love - K & S

A Christmas Story

We're watching part of the 24 hours of A Christmas Story marathon. Ralphie just got his Little Orphan Annie decoder ring!

We both have decided that this is THE perfect movie. I love every scene. We've already seen the tongue stuck to the pole, the A++++++, the "Oh, fuuuuudge", the lamp, and "who's my little piggie?"

Anyway - hope everyone is having a good Christmas!

ps - the mother just broke the lamp while "watering the plants". :)

Christmas cheer?

Our neighbor's house. I think this qualifies as ironic...

During the day.

Lit up like know the rest.

Christmas and photos

Tess and Kirsten, When we talked this week I forgot to mention that I mailed all of your presents to my parents house. You should call or email her ( to see if you want to stop by and pick them up or if she and my dad will be out in your area to drop them off. I hope you like them!!!

Second, can either of you email me pictures you took from your trip out here this summer? I need to update my "Visits from Us" photo ablum. I bet there are some good drunken ones from lunch at the wine and cheese shop!


Remember when Scott was stripping the wall paper in the spare bedroom upstairs and found a bunch of fun writings, pictures, and what not all over the walls? We got to meet the Cindy who was partly responsible for these fun scribblings! Cindy Hetler, brother of Chris Hetler who visited us the previous night, came over to apologize for her brother's intoxicated intrusion.

Upon hearing her name, I insisted that she come in and look around. I knew that we'd be able to get some stories out of her. When asked about the wall writings, she broke out into gails of laughter. Apparently, just prior to putting up the lovely psychedelic wallpaper with pink, orange, and green flowers, their mother gave them permission to go to town on the walls. Hence the "Draft beer not students" and series of boys names intermittently crossed out or circled with hearts.

We promised to have her over again some time so that she can reminisce, and also so we can learn about the history of this house.

Light a Candle for Aids

Bristol-Meyers is donating a buck every time someone lights a candle at this link. It's pretty easy...go do it!

Christmas Albums

We got trapped by the Christmas Album display at Best Buy the other day. Scott, can you shed light on the Twister Sister Christmas album?? I mean really, what were they thinking?

Also, I think each of you has the Peanuts Christmas album, which one is the original and which one is the best? Our Holiday music supply is very limited and we need a suggestion or two to beef it up!

Anything but homework

Ok, so I have only ONE thing to complete for my class. Yet, I'm finding things all over the internet that I MUST do first.

I give you my celebrity-look-alike collage:

White album

I know you all know this already but the white album is such a great album to sit down and listen to!! I played it Sunday afternoon after not listening to it probably in years. Yet somehow the lyrics to all of the songs come back to you as if you just heard it yesterday. Josh wasn't as impressed, he asked if there were any songs that DIDN'T make it on the album. I am still working on his Beatles education!!
