STEAM Night 2018

STEAM Night is Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics night with parents at James's school. James loved the kaleidoscope activity and kept making more viewing panels at home.

Visiting Ash- January 2018

We visited Ash last weekend. Kevin and the kids stayed over night on Saturday, and then they went back without me on Sunday morning so I could stay another night while Ash and I got some additional bonding on. We all got to meet her new pet Rosie.

Bob Visit 2018

We visited Bob on Saturday. He had some Christmas gifts for the kids and then he introduced us to the world of virtual reality. Wooo! VR.

Miranda's Dance Class 2018

Miranda started dance classes! She's taking tap and ballet in the 3-4 age group. I am so excited. She got a little nervous in the days leading up to her first class but once she was dressed and there - she loved every minute of it!

All dressed except for shoes.

Bomb Cyclone and Snow Days 2018

We knew the "Bomb Cyclone" was coming, so school was canceled for Thursday in advance. I didn't tell the kids though and told them they had to wear their pajamas inside-out and do a snow dance. And it worked! Too well, actually, because they had Thursday and Friday off. Very long weekend!

New Year's Eve 2017

For New Year's Eve, we did a countdown around 7 pm, drank sparkling apple cider, ate 12 grapes each for 12 lucky months in 2018 (Spanish tradition my family has followed a long time). Then we made smores in the fire place, a thing we did maybe too much in 2017. James performed many many magic shows for us. Here's hoping 2018 is much better than 2017.

New Years Eve 2017
Cheers!

Trillium Brewery and the Cabot Theatre 2017

After we left Boston, we had two more fun stops. We had brunch a Sunrise Breakfast in Norwood. We met up with Janice, Darren, Ellie, Bill, and Jimmy at Trillium Brewery in Canton. It was so nice seeing everyone and also tasting the delicious beers.

In the evening we met up with Casey and Jacyn and went with them to Casey's work party. He's been renovating the Cabot Theatre for several years, and this was a party to celebrate the progress and to celebrate the Cabot Theatre bar (yet-to-be-named) opening. We're extremely happy for Casey.
