January Catsup


What's up? Still winter - we continue a long streak under freezing. Kids (with K's help) have established a luge track around the condos' power supply... hmmm. Ysabela had her double-digit birthday, was in a short play at school as an native american lawyer,
and ran a trading post selling math games. (Made about $15 profit - having a business-mnded mother helped a lot.)


Xavi has started Tae Kwan Do and has made an amazing start. Ysabela has started braces by having four teeth out... watch for the Bloody Tooth in this space if we get a chance to finish it.

Work is set to begin on the house soon, which might mean we're back in the house by the end of February... be weird to be back across the bridge.

Herofunnies

Mason Mitchell was over for some experimental movie making. Action figures act out a conflict between IronMonger, Iron Man, Hulk and the Silver Surfer. If you're interested, give it a try. But you might need some anti-motion sickness medicine to handle the camera work. The last two minutes are the bloopers/gag reel, which is really the best part. (In the editor's opinion.)

Happy New Year!



Well, we're back at school, got our final quote on the mold remediation and trying to get back at it. Christmas was restful, and then we got in a grandparent week, too. Ysabela was excited about a heap of new cat figures and a swarm of fairies, for which she built quite an extended fairyville. Really a complete village. Xavier got a few action figures (enough to build a complete blob) but there was also a strong Batman theme, and he built most of the Batman legos completely solo. (That'll teach Dad to nap on Christmas.) If you didn't get an e-Christmas letter, be sure to email us and we'll get it right out.
Peace and blessings.

Coming soon: the Hotseat with Brandon Greeno, guest star.
