Year of the Dog

So, is everyone feeling lucky today? Today is the first day of the Year of the Dog, though more specifically it’s the Year of the (Earth) Dog. The Micro-Dragon was partying last night at the paternal grandparents and while he’s too young to be suffering from the effects of the hair of the dog, he […]

Year of the Monkey

Happy Lunar New Year! Today is officially the first day of the Year of the Monkey, though more specifically, it’s the Year of the (Fire) Monkey. The big event was of course last night, and everyone congregated at the homestead as having the Eve falling on the weekend meant that there was more effort possible […]

The Micro-D with the giant phone

Happy 2016!

Happy 2016! Liam Wallace kicked off the Gregorian new year a little pale from all the activities, though it was more from partying with his friend Dave pretty much all night and all day. Sort of this pale: This was taken a couple of weeks ago and not on NYE but the coloration’s about the […]

Xmas Time!

It’s Xmas Time again today! Liam Wallace is a whole lot bigger than that porchetta we made on his first Xmas and he takes up a whole lot of room as he spent an hour trying to push the Patrem out of bed (I was taking up too much space which he needed to stretch […]

Xmas Eve with Santa's cookie and carrot

Xmas Eve

Wow! It’s already Xmas Eve and the Patrem has just realized how long it’s been since the last post. There’s been a whole lot going on since the Micro-Dragon (who’s not really so micro anymore) joined the Giraffes, but I’ll have to get to that. Right now, it’s Xmas Eve, and Liam Wallace has enjoyed […]

Strawberry cheesecake


Today is Father’s Day, the one day in the year that the now-defunct MCI identified as as the day with the highest number of collect call traffic out of all days of the year. This is different than Mother’s Day, where there is a run on flowers and the never-ending quest for a brunch spot […]

Climbing the mountain of snow

Long Weekend

So what does the Micro-Dragon do on the hump day of a long weekend? That’s right – put on the big boy (snow) pants before going outside in the blizzard to create a ginormous snowman… …climb a mountain of snow, …and then go for a long walk in the deep drifts. It’s choco-avalanche tomorrow.

Year of the Sheep - Liam Wallace and the cake kit

Year of the Sheep

Happy Lunar New Year! Today is officially the first day of the Year of the Sheep, which is also known as the Year of the Goat and the Year of the Ram. There’s some ambiguity as to which delicious ruminant it’s related to as 羊 refers to both sheep and goats. Irrespective, this particular cycle […]

The PVC Santa


We’re still in the post-Xmas period before the Gregorian New Year (not the good one). Liam Wallace has spent the weekend thus far treating his maternal grandparents to a donut (hand-choosing flavors) and showing off his dance moves. Unlike previous years, the Parentals actually chatted up Santa and the Micro-Dragon was pretty excited this past […]

Xmas surprise eggs from the paternal uncle!


Yes, the Micro-Dragon gets to acknowledge that it’s Xmas again and not The-Religious-Holiday-in-December-That-was-Declared-a-Civic-Holiday-Openly-Embraced-and-Enjoyed-by-All-Denominations-and-Faiths like it was last year. So his first Xmas was spent box-surfing and being compared to a porchetta and a turkey while his second one involved a piano lesson and being carried around like Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra. What about this year? […]
