ex machina

as yes, 'tis the season for traditions, and today kris and i went with a merry band of family members to cut down our family trees. it was a perfectly norman rockwellesque morning. there was the requisite chill in the air that mandated the wearing of the red union suit. on cue, we starting getting a good amount of lake effect snow.

once again, we held out hope that we might find a noble fir like we grew to like in olympia, washington , but like always we settled happily for a white pine. no hot cocoa provided on site this year. hi. ho.

a good time was had by all, including 10 month old ruby, who was a champ in the chilly weather. it's always fun to go out and get a tree and i've never understood why so few people enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the annual event.

in a move that will surprise almost nobody who knows us, kris and i brought home the latest addition to our family, cadence, our new 7 week-old bernese mountain dog. she's very sweet and already seems like a natural part of the family. more photos than you can shake a stick at - coming soon.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
