We passed court!

|I got to wear these slippers at Nellie's house - very butch.|
|$30,000? A bargain at twice the price!|
|Official Bulgarian Document|
|Pretty sure this is from the Ministry of Very Important Grains|
|Yes, it has been snowing.........|
|While playing in the snow (Jericho, Olive & I were tracking Gaelan),|
Gaelan found where a squirrel had dug up its nut cache.
|Close up of the nut cache - only one acorn was left behind as evidence.|
|The road to hell may be paved with good intentions, but I am happy to |
note that the road to Amherst, Massachusetts is just paved with snow.
|I met this dwarf on his way to the Misty Mountains........|
|We call this facial expression the "Nate face". Sometimes Nate can have a grumpy face :) .|
|What does this face communicate?|

|Marin took this picture of me without my mask on. |
Yes, my head actually is a basketball.
|I think about what I will feed Marin and Nellie while I am in Bulgaria with them - what will |
nourish them and help them feel comfortable. And I think about how I will probably live
on Bulgarian yogurt the entire time because, well, basically that's how dull I am.
|This is called "the snuggle chair" in our house.|
|Very dirty door.|
|Nellie's canes next to her bed. My Raggedy Ann from childhood. I can't believe that someday soon there will be a little girl laying in this bed!! (Swoooooooon!)|
