2009 Farewell to Sam the Cat

We had to say goodbye to Sam the cat earlier this year.  I just came across this photo, which I called “The Eternal Chase”.  Sam can be glad that no one is chasing him now.

Leo’s old suit, one of my favorite items, got some new use by baby Henry.  Below is Leo at 8 months and Henry at almost 7 months.  Cute!

Weekend Snowstorm

Filed under: Uncategorized — fehlhaber @ 7:49 am

It was cold, it was snowy, and blow blow blowy.  Some photos from our big snow on Sunday, Dec. 20.

We found out what the porch does in a blowing snowstorm — it gets snowy!

Happy Anniversary, Jupiter!  We picked him up exactly one year ago today!  And it was snowing then, too.

We love these old decorations and they look even better in the snow.

Our new home in the snow.

The snowplow action by our house couldn’t be beat!  This is a Paystar 5000 “Snow Miser”.  I figure we better learn about snowplow models.

The view from our kitchen window — this is the Lovering House, built around 1800.

Jupiter and Nicky get in the spirit, too!

Winter Food

Our winter food share from Green Meadows Farm is giving us lots and lots of yummy vegetables — we can’t even keep up (anyone need cabbage???).  Below are potatoes, yams, and turnips  for “Young Turnip and Sweet Potato Soup” (recipe here) from Chez Panisse Vegetables.  Grandma Vera and Leo gave it two thumbs up!

Chocolate Batons for Donncha

Filed under: Uncategorized — fehlhaber @ 8:47 pm

Donncha got to try Finny’s favorite chocolate batons today.  He liked the pastry, but was unsure of the chocolate.  He spat it out, but seems to be pondering his decision in the last shot.  No problem — Finn and Leo finished it for him!
