week in review

Another week getting used to this New England cold and preparing for the holidays. Luckily cold doesn’t seem to affect this little girl one bit. Can’t get her to keep her hood or a hat on for anything.

just another week

A week later and we’re finally settled. Feels good. I think we’re all happy to be sleeping in our own beds and getting into the swing of things.

Speaking of beds, someone was pretty happy the dog bed made it here.IMG_7437 Nothing to see here, just a girl sitting in her duck.IMG_7439 It’s time to try on hats after naptime!IMG_7442 IMG_7447 Mom, I woke up and there was a puppy in my bed!IMG_7472 My newest employee, Willy.IMG_7484 My little architect.IMG_7499 My tooths hurt…IMG_7510 These two call each other to coordinate outfits…IMG_7582 Mmm, where do I start?IMG_7591 First sit-down meal in the new house (yes we’ve cooked in the past week, but didn’t have a kitchen table to eat it at). Tuscan tomato bean soup with ciabatta croutons and Croatian truffles and olive oil.IMG_7624 Never going to tire of this view.IMG_7606

36 days later, we’re almost settled

That’s right folks. Thirty-six days after Em and I left California, all of us are in the same place, with our stuff! We’re still unpacking but it feels nice to be typing this from my own couch. I know Em and and Wally we’re happy to be reunited with their toys.

this week

Em, Wally, and I are still in NY while we wait for our stuff, and Nate to make their way east. We’re all getting spoiled with full bellies and lots of attention. But this weather….not even 60 today?!?! Don’t know what we’re going to do about that.

Em, Wally, and I are continuing are east coast tour this week. We headed back to NY for a bit since we are still without our stuff. We try to only report good news over here, so we won’t talk about that situation…
