I spent the past few days in Santa Fe, NM at a family reunion. Not the "ugh it's uncle alfred" kind of reunion, but the kind where I thank my lucky stars for these relations all around. The postcard versions: I babysat for the first time possibly ever, although I do have some teenage experience toddlersitting. The baby was good for the entire three hours, I got some tips on what babies like to do (hint, it's not sitting) so we swam and danced and I tried to teach it to crawl. We're not quite there yet. The kids always have kid-specific activities at these reunions, which last year and this included a day of rock climbing. Since I totally climb now, ...

After the race on Sunday, I drove up to New Hampshire to visit my sister. She is graduating from college this coming weekend. My aim for the trip was two-fold. First, see Sarah (Scare) at college. Second, beat my brother. Nathaniel (Than) and his girlfriend drove up to New Hampshire from Maryland to visit Scare two weeks ago.

[caption id="attachment_3144" align="alignnone" width="200" caption="March 2, 1988"][/caption] Here is a family photo from Manila that one of my seven half/step/awesome sisters recently posted on facebook. It's from her 14th birthday. My mom was taking the photo, so she's not in it. The first thing I noticed was that cake - totally not the work ...
There are a few nice things about having a "minimalist family Christmas", which I know is soo two months ago now that it's February, but bear with me. There are a few nice things: - we get to sleep in on Christmas because there's not much to open - family togetherness! Which results in me text-messaging my brother across the table during Settlers to ask him why my sister, on the other side of the table, is being The Worst. - only have a couple thank-you notes to write (still finishing the second one...) - JANUARY/FEBRUARY FEEL LIKE REAL CHRISTMAS!!!!!!! Sorry, family, but the hat and sweatshirt and non-cheesy earrings (good job Ma!) have been upstaged. For example, I arrived home yesterday to find a ...
