Christmas 2009

December 22nd, 2009

Get the Flash Player to see this video.

This photo was taken at the girls' school during a "Pancake Breakfast with Santa" on the 12th. The accompanying music is from a performance of the Barbershop group that Dossy joined this year, the Ridgewood Cavaliers of Harmony. They had a performance at the Ridgefield Public Library on December 4th. Charlie was 'videographer' with my cell phone (that's why the quality isn't that great) and I neglected to tell her that she needed to be careful when recording. So, inadvertently, she's accompanying the RCH while they sang their last song of the show.

Our whole family wants to wish you & yours a VERY Merry Christmas and may God's Blessing be with you all for 2010!

Time to UPDATE!!!

August 25th, 2005

Well, the site’s been up (pretty much solidly) for the last 5 1/2 years straight — ever since Charlie was born. Dossy and I have decided that it’s time for a MAJOR overhaul/re-vamping of the site.

I’m going to be going back and re-sorting/re-naming a BUNCH of photos and videos from the early years (they’re in a total state of disarray and some photos have never even been put up). And Ed’s going to handle the ‘technical’ stuff — he’s going to re-work some of the scripts we’ve got running and make it a lot easier for me to update the site. He’ll also sort out some of the discrepancies regarding file/image size and what-not (it’s all rather complicated, that’s why he’s going to do it ;-)

Anyhoo, all this means that photos will not be available for a while until we get this all sorted out. Please email us if you think we’re taking too long ;-) That way we’ll also have an idea of exactly how many of you are USING the site.

We put a lot of time and effort into keeping this going, and it’s good to know that it’s appreciated. We definately welcome any comments and feedback. If you’ve been around since the beginning of the site, let us know if something’s gone that you’d like to see back, or if you think we can change an existing feature for the better. Now’s the time to let us know what you think, while we’re working on it! Don’t keep your thoughts to yourself — speak up! After all, you might have something useful to contribute ;-P

End of April 2005

April 30th, 2005

Well, after several months of ‘behind-ness’ on the website we’re back up to date! There’s been a lot happening — we had the girls’ birthdays in February (Suzie’s was on the 1st and Charlie’s on the 26th) and then we had a ‘joint’ Birthday party for them on the 13th (which we still haven’t sent out the ‘Thank-yous’ for — sorry to those who attended, but they’re still in the works).

All three of those dates are good to check out — we did a lot of fun stuff. Also, other dates worth noting (in no particular order) are April Fool’s Day (April 1st) we had some fun that day! We just got together with our cousin, Ilana, at her new house last Thursday (the 28th of April). We did a ‘family hike’ on April 9th, which was quite fun. And there are pictures of our friendly garden chipmunk on the 7th of April.

Our friend Jake’s birthday part was on March 20th and the girls went bowling for the first time — you should see the pictures of Suzie holding a bowling ball almost as big as she is!!! It’s really quite funny! Our other friends, the Puzios had their joint party on March 6th and had an Amphibian/Reptile guy come and show the kids a bunch of lizards, frogs, snakes — it was really very interesting and educational.

Another fun day to look at is February 21st — we had a huge snow-storm and did some fun stuff both out- and in-doors. And on February 11th the girls received a super gift from their Aunty Janine and Uncle Josh and cousin Jenna in the UK. They got a new puppet show theater, which, if you know our girls, is a BIG hit.

Other than those dates, Charlie has her riding lesson each week on a Tuesday — you can check her progress as I still take pictures and short movies each week. And we’ve had several other friend’s birthday parties that we’ve attended — there are plenty photos there too. The rest is just sort of day-to-day stuff.

We are experiencing a few minor technical issues on the site — but if you have any problems, please email Ed/Dossy or me to let us know what problems you’re experiencing. We can’t fix it if we don’t know about it!
Hope everyone’s well — take care until we update again.
