Some Minor Details

1. Blogs are such a great way to connect with people you normally would never meet. But you read their blog and then you know these intimate details about a person inmost being but you wouldn't know them if you past them in the street. This week I've feel such sadness for Alicia Paulson and her husband Andy. I was drawn to her blog cause she makes homemade art all around her and then I got drawn into her subplot of wanting babies. I've waited for over a year with her as chose an adoption path and then I was devastated when I read this.

2. I wish I could wake up one morning to be greeted by two jumping twins in this nursery again.

3. Today was a stormy day in the pacific northwest. Made me wish it was summer and I was camping. Back in my hammock, reading a great book.

4. Thanks to Craigslist we now own a piano. Tobin is starting lessons soon and I can't keep my hands off it. What are the odds I can teach myself?

5. Starting to feel a little overwhelmed with the holidays coming up. My calendar is very full. Almost wanted to stop and get a tree today just so I could scratch it off my list.

6. We are surprising the kids Christmas day with the news of a trip to Disneyland. Needing suggestions on how to tell them. It will be their only gift besides their stockings so I want it to be fun. Hit me up with some ideas.

Yes, you can learn! I've had many adults take lessons over the years, but if you help Tobin and read over his shoulder and practice from his books, you'll be able to learn right along with him as he goes! Lets see some pics of the new piano. : )
