Isabel at work

I told you she would we take over the blog for a few months... The first 48 hours have been great. Not too much whining, only a few accidents. Yesterday I worked from home in the am, and then brought her to JDK in the afternoon. Today, she spent most of the day at work.

Welcome Isabel

Our family grew by one puppy last night. We brought Isabel (a Boxer, with some English Bulldog in her) home. What can I say, we're in love with her after 18 hours. For a puppy, she's been great. More updates, pics, video to come (Isabel will probably take over the blog for a few months).

Weekend wrap up

Drinks Friday night at the new pad... Ross and I checked out the fancy new couch (yes, we own one of those). Neil and Caroline made it out and Molly came all the way from Portland (for a wedding). My mom and Paul became the first house guests. And Maegen caught up on some reading.

Tuttle Ski Chalet Getaway

I had not been to the Tuttle family ski house in nine years. We made up for it this weekend with two nights and a day of great times. We played some Balderdash, Monopoly, and made some turns at Stratton on Saturday. There was, of course, a Dead sing-a-long late night. And some Bloody Mary's were necessary on Saturday and Sunday mornings. We certainly cannot party like we used to, but that did not stop us from trying.

random snowday thoughts

Today, we were blessed with another day of snow and wintry mixes (that's snow, sleet, and freezing rain to those unfamiliar with the weather of the Northeast). Anyway, I used the weather as an excuse to take the day off. I have to admit, I am a little tired of all this winter weather, particularly now that I have been introduced to the world of shoveling driveways, walkways, and even roofs, sometimes more than once in the same day. I guess I can't complain too much, as I spent both Saturday and Sunday mornings having a blast on my snowboard, and plan to do more of the same this weekend. I might even get paid to snowboard of Friday, which is a perk of my job that I have yet to take advantage of. Of course, I'll have to hang out with thirteen-year-old girls, but I suppose it's worth it. Here's a photo of Jay shoveling off the roof this weekend...I was so nervous, but not nervous enough to let the moment go un-photographed. He almost broke our mailbox(also pictured below) by chucking snow and ice chunks at it. I'm hoping he succeeds at that next time. Who would buy such a hideous thing? We're hoping someone soon as we can dig it out of the snow, it will be up for sale. Let us know if you are interested.

Captin Higgins

I'm not sure if the this is the funniest clip I've seen this year because it's so rad, or if it's because Darren is a friend, co-worker, Tokyo-go-go, and GIS member. Either way I think it's hilarious. Make sure you watch all the way through, you'll learn something and the outtakes at the end are the best part. Nice work Darren, Ross, and John.

House update: Whalers shrine

We loaded all the books onto the book shelf on Sunday. We have space for a Whalers shrine, this is what home ownership is all about. The pic below is for my bro and Julie out in PDX, enjoy.

Sled Doggin

We went dog sledding this weekend. It was actually a very short ride, but fun. Doug and Elizabeth were up for the weekend so we headed to Shelburne farms for winterfest. Some cheese and bread samples, sugar on snow, and an owl. Below is a shot of "O" bakery at Shelburne farms. They make the best bread in the world, I felt like I was visiting Mecca.
