Here are the photos I promised. I pinch myself each morning that I wake up in this oasis. I count each day I get to live here a gift because I am just sure that nothing this great can last. Certainly the earth will soon be opening up and swallowing us whole.

Patties on St. Paddy's

It was magically delicious! (my dinners are usually in need of a little magic)

Emmy was green on the outside

Savanna was green on the inside (she has been quite sick the past few days)

Ansel was suprised that the green mashed potatoes didn't taste green. I asked him what green tasted like and he said, "green tastes yucky like the Grinch."

I apologize for the brevity in narration of this particular post. It is sadly ironic that the occasions in my life that are most noteworthy are also accompanied by a lack of time in which to document these events. When I happen upon a few moments to catch my breath, I will attempt to reconstruct the events as of late. These include my trip to Utah for my grandfather's funeral, Ansel's 4th birthday, and our relocation to our new home, all which occurred rather simultaneously.
