Carol of the [Mission] Bells

It’s Christmas: Mommy needs a new Christmas Carol. … But does she need a new ornament?

For this year’s traditional gift of a Christmas Carol and tree Ornament, we present a little twist. The Carol still commemorates an activity from 2013, but it’s presented this year in the form of a decorative garland, arranged in […]

2nd Grade Music Around the World

Wednesday was the 2nd Grade Music Concert at Booksin Elementary, part of the end-of-year ceremonies for Felicia’s school.

Good Luck in Bavaria — Just Not For Germany!

The second stage of our visit to Germany was our primary tourist time in Deutschland, and we had planned to spend it in Bavaria. Although the US Soccer Team didn’t join us there, we had a great time — and some very surprising good luck.

Too Much Snow?

No, Silly! At least not yet.

After a few inexplicable delays, we finally made our way up to our Tahoe Cabin this past weekend to enjoy all of the snow that has been falling in March. And, boy, has it been falling!

We think there is more than 30 feet on the ground. Our […]

“A-MAZE-ing Mania” … the Video Game!
