I am excited to have the opportunity to feature Victoria in a review/giveaway on the blog. Stay tuned for it. In the meantime, has anyone seen it? What did you think? I loved Downton Abbey, so have a good idea that I will enjoy this as well. Here is a bit about Victoria – MASTERPIECE: […]
This is the poster, announcing the high school play Grease, that James tacked up at our grocery store in town. James is playing “Teen Angel!” He sings Beauty School Dropout. He has another small roll as one of the high school boys. Here is clip of Frankie Avalon singing Beauty School Dropout. Do you remember […]
I can’t believe that I didn’t share this sooner! (I did share on Facebook.) Grant’s mom, Gerene, made T-shirt quilts for the boys this past Christmas. She did a wonderful job! The boys really loved them. It’s a great way to recycle their old t-shirts, while preserving the memories associated with them. And of course […]
I snapped a few photos of Grant tying Ryan’s tie. It’s amazing how many silly faces this kid can make while being photographed. Naturally, I had to share! 🙂 That’s more like it….. Post Footer automatically generated by Add Post Footer Plugin for wordpress.
James is a freshman in high school. This is his first year on student council. As part of student council activities, the group holds a male beauty pageant/talent show called “Mr. Oakmont.” There were 11 contestants. James is #2. They had a “swim suit” competition. They had fun with that – showing off their muscles […]
Here in Massachusetts we’ve just had two feet of snow dumped on us within a couple of days. The kids got 2 snow days out of the deal, so they are happy. That brings the total to 5 snow days! I am so done with winter! I figure a good laugh is better than the […]
Our family attended the annual Robert Burns night over the weekend. It’s a dinner event that celebrates the life and poetry of Scottland’s Robert Burns. It occurs on or close to January 25th, his birthday. It’s also a celebration of Scottish heritage. Grant’s father was born in Scotland. He passed away several years ago now. […]
James needed a new desk for his room. He wanted something with a lot of surface area to work on and a lot of drawers for storage space. The bigger the desk, the bigger the price tag, I figured. That was not the case with Staples’ Whalen Leadenhall Desk. We bought it at Staples.com and […]
Here are images of winter in New England taken by my nephew Oliver. He is a great photographer! Check out more of his pictures on Instagram! Post Footer automatically generated by Add Post Footer Plugin for wordpress.
The boys are playing town basketball. As a 9th grader, this is James’s last year to play. Grant is coaching, so both James and Ryan are on his team. This is a first and a great way to finish the league. I really enjoy watching their games. They are fast-paced with lots of action. Ryan […]
