quite contrary

we got serious about gardening this year built new planter boxes made all our own dirt compost combo...(that was fun)...its been so cool to watch it thrive and its so relaxing to be in the garden...and makes me want to watch the seceret garden and talk about things being wick, buy big straw hats, and wear cloth aprons from the waist down  ...the best part though is getting it out of your own yard right onto your own table...i love dirt

so it was my dad's bday this past week and we decided to do a harry potter dinner for him (for the kids?) everyone dressed up (i knew the long sleeve long black craft like jersey dress was a smart purchase)  my brother showed up in a weird thermal outfit, glasses and a wand and insisted he was a dead harry potter... we made an extensive home made butterbeer recipe and all my garage sale finds turned out to look surprisingly hogwartian all placed on a table...oh and of course my brother brought his fog machine...still not sure how he came to own one...and it was complete with floating candles the idea of which i got from mary and may have started the whole thing

poor terri...all she wanted was for us to sit pretty ...
and all she got was shots like these...
but i love these anyways..and how beautiful is tahoe...
this is just across the street from the bell house...
you can leave your heart in san francisco but mine will be waiting for me in tahoe

also when i look at these all i can think of is clifford...can you just look like a normal human boy for one second?!

4 score

loved spending the 4th under niccole's umbrella and having a fun sunburnt fireworked weekend
i said it once and i'll say it again
" i can't believe it was a year ago a year ago"
i feel like so much has happened but nothing has changed
i feel like change is coming and i feel good about it

we're lifers til the bitter end

happy birthday corine i couldn't think of what to even say so i figured there's atleast a couple thousand words in these pictures to do it for me ...i love you ...stop it
