Counting Our Chickens...

It's only half way through our trip home on the ferry, but I'd say that it's a COMPLETE SUCCESS. Apart from the awesomeness of free wifi on the whole crossing from Nantucket to Hyannis on the Steamship, the trip is gret because Margot it being super happy.

Finally, Something Margot Doesn't Like

We don't have any pictures of Margot's first ferry ride because she was inconsolable and pictures of a screaming baby aren't cute. The other people who have to listen to the screaming baby also aren't very patient with you pausing to take pictures of her. Not that we tried!

Actually, everyone was amazingly nice and still asked us about her They were"what's her name" and "where are you from" sort of questions rather than "can't you get her to stop crying" and "why don't you go away". Adam had the magic touch (gait?) and soothed her by walking around. It was kind of funny looking. Imagine a bowlegged cowboy on the rolling seas.

Today we take the ferry back. I sure hope she doesn't give us a repeat performance!

Breaking the Log Jam

So, it's been a busy buncha weeks, no surprise. Starting with Thanksgiving, when I posted a teaser and never got to the follow-up, various (and sundry) things have resulted in a general lack of posting - so, Sorry! Thanksgiving blended into a busy first half of December, culminating in my trip to Tel Aviv (as some of you guessed) and Christi's first week caring for Margot alone. The second half of December blew past as we recovered and then prepared for the holidays, and we've been with Christi's folks on Nantucket since Friday. Don't you worry, we've accomplished Margot's first Xmas - with over 500 photos snapped, so it's well documented. And that's ignoring the ice dam and water damage at home that our neighbor called about! (No big deal for us, in the end - but thanks to my folks for going to check it out!)

Topics I'm hoping to somehow find more time to post on or at least share top photos:

  • Thanksgiving photos with the McKernan side of the family
  • Margot's amazing progress and development
  • More photos from Tel Aviv
  • Margot's astounding development and progress
  • Nantucket/Christmas photos
  • Jolly vs. The Atlantic Ocean
  • Etc

Guessing Game, Part Four

OK, these might actually give someone a decent clue, possibly.

Note that the second one shows a live orange tree, suspended in midair with no contact with the ground. "It's art."
