A Birthday Card from my Little Brother
Sep 4th, 2011 by Jessica

My little brother Noah is seven years old.  He sent me a birthday card this year that is truly the best gift ever.

Hi Jessack Happy Birthday Love Noah

Hi Jessack Happy Birthday Love Noah

My DaD included a note which explains:

Jess,

Noah says that while the Pteranodon flies overhead you (in the orange jumpsuit) help Noah hoist the crystal of friendship to spawn the heart-shaped gem of happiness to kick-off Noah’s ultimate half-pipe demonstrations and celebration for your birthday!  I couldn’t have said it better myself.

Love,

DaD

PS – Noah learned how to skateboard a few days ago!

Ty September Birthday Bear

Ty September Birthday Bear

Today is my birthday.  I absolutely love birthdays.  To me, this is my day to celebrate my life and all the wonderful things that have happened to me along the way.  I dream of all the things to come, and of all the great adventures I will be privileged enough to experience in the future.  To me, every day is a gift.  You can’t return it, so you may as well enjoy it and get the most out of every one.

Thank you to each and every one of my family and friends for being a part of my life.  Thank you to my readers for stopping by and for experiencing my writings.  Thank you so much!

My birthday wish is for each of you to have another year of amazing experiences and personal growth.  Live a little.  Laugh a lot.  Love your life.  You’re worth it.

Cheers!

Merry Christmas!
Dec 24th, 2010 by Jessica

These little snow people are ceramic.  Andrew painted them in 2000 during a community ceramics class we took while still living in Burlington, Massachusetts.  They continue to bring us Christmas cheer, year after year.

Merry Christmas!

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
Dec 22nd, 2010 by Jessica

I’d like to start off by sharing a picture of our house all decorated for Christmas 2010.  This year we made the switch to all LED lights for our display.  They are bright in the river bed and subtle on the house, which we like.  The Garfield was painted by Andrew back in the mid-1980’s (vintage!) and we are thankfully he hasn’t been stolen or destroyed by the local teenagers yet.  This is only the second year we have dared to display him.

Christmas 2010

For the past two years, I have loved looking at the signs out front of our San Tan Village shopping mall.  They are beautiful year-round, but when they add the lights and bow for Christmas, they are something to see.  Usually I don’t pay much attention to commercial decorations but this display brightens up our community and it looks very classy.  The same sign is installed in at least five locations that I am aware of, all around the shopping center entrances along San Tan Village Parkway and Williamsfield Road.

I have promised myself for two years now that I would go take a picture of it, and this year I finally got off my butt and did it.  They are hard to capture because the lights continually change color hues, similar to the Disney castles at night.  I couldn’t choose my favorite color combination, so I have included three of the prettiest for your viewing pleasure.
