long time, no post!

I was fortunate to be invited to post at a cooking blog. Boss lady Ellen contributed a few months ago with a gorgeous and easy chicken curry recipe. Now my quick and easy taco method is accessible to all! I have no secrets left.

Kelsey, from Naptime Chef who invited Ellen and I to guest post is working on a cook book- maybe we'll make it in due to our super pro photography by KK!

Early November in Prospect Park-a dream!

Max's school was having a fundraiser (Scootathon 2009!) and we went along to provide moral support. There was a great little gathering with games and face painting for the kids and free chocolate popcorn for all!!!
What a revelation to head to the park when parking is plentiful and the place is generally empty. On our walk back toward our car (in its awesome super secret parking spot-thanks to Valerie) we took some lesser paths and had a great time discovering areas of the park we'd never seen before. A rediscovered secret waterfall for one. The misty air enhanced our feeling of being explorers discovering something new. Pahu(an old friend and fellow Waldorf parent) took these great shots of Max. Wish he'd been there too document the secret waterfall!

max scootering this summer

yes - its been awhile since our last post.
Here are some snapshots of my growing boy (he actually grew a half inch per month these last two months!

People constantly ask Max if he's getting taller so he wants to measure himself all the time. Whenever its changed we mark it on the same place in his door frame with the date.

joey and max found a disposable camera at our yelping hill family outing this august and had a little photo shoot while jessica and I made dinner
max enjoyed the photo booth after rocking out to tom freund at the living room- hug trees!

happy birthday to aunt juki

we have a beloved family member who is about as far away as one could be so we must fete her wonderful accomplishment of rocking another year with a tribute in pictures and in words. pictures first:

This is the trip we took to the beach the weekend before last all the while reminiscing about last summer's super fun visit to Quogue with los shefwiggins! We miss our tia juki something awful!

Happy birthday to my lifelong adopted sister who I will come visit very soon! We are in each other's thoughts constantly as we imprinted on the same things together in our impressionable years. We have formed almost as two individuals from one source it sometimes seems. She and I made up words to the muzak on the radio as 8 year olds. The songs always began "I was walking down the street." We made elaborate accessories out of paper and staples. We put on numerous variety shows for our folks complete with songs, sketches and programs crediting the creators.
As tweens we frequented the nearby drug store trying to figure out which "temporary" hair dye we could talk our moms' into letting us use. We had our princess phones glued to our ears-she in her room me laying on the kitchen counter as far as the one family phone cord would stretch. She and I shaved our legs together for the first time. When I got "it" before she did she hand crated the loveliest temporary solution of cotton balls tissue and tape until we could get back to our favorite drugstore and figure out a whole new world of feminine products. She encouraged me to join choir with her in middle school and she insisted I apply with her to the arts magnet high school. Our high school years were mercifully enriching and exciting adventures in self discovery as opposed to the "mean girls" fate we could have faced (for the most part-we were teenagers after all). During college she kept me involved in the booming music scene in Austin first by inviting me there almost every weekend (then by becoming a fixture in that scene and inviting me there almost every weekend).
She let me move in with her on a couple of occasions when I had no money for rent, fronted me til I could take up the slack and even helped me find jobs. All our major transitions, into teenagerhood, into college, into the real world were made in reference to each other with mutual support and many creative solutions. Juki even introduced to mah sweetie who I carefully avoided for several weeks because he was just a little too cute. Now I have the world's cutest baby boy (ok maybe 2nd cutest, Cyrus!)
We don't talk on the phone frequently but we generally make up for that with volume and intensity. She is my only adopted sister and I am glad she has joined me in this our blankety blank year of life (keep guessing)
There are some very incriminating photos of our youth I could post (our original eyebrows-watch out Brooke Shields!) but I'll be kind! Happy day Miss Miles Away! I'll see you soon.
