Sandwich Stealer

Working from home has a lot of benefits. It also presents a danger to sandwiches during lunch breaks.

 

(The first has little Fireball leaning into my sub sandwich and the second has her contentedly putting a hand on the sub as she confidently bites into the end.)

I usually get a cold cut combo during grocery night and then save at least one half for work the next day. With as busy as things were that night both halves (fortunately) were available to share.

Birthdays

With the blog in sort of catch up mode perhaps we’ll highlight some pictures from their birthdays without dedicating a post per kid.

That, and I don’t think Redflare grabbed pictures from every birthday we’ve missed on the blog since we last posted something. :p

There has been some gift giving along the way though, like a painting made by Little Miss for TJ:

Might Fine Dining

Around now I should point out that this trip was generously paid for by Redflare’s friend who needed the help. Getting to bask in the mountain views was enough for Redflare, but her friend went above and beyond and treated her to a fancy restaurant too.

I hear they have the best cream soda she’s ever had.

Because both of them are camera shy, any pictures of the two of them together are for our private collection, instead you can enjoy more shots of food like this Asaskan halibut…

Something about asparagus and cheese…

Mushroom Popover?

And this random image of a Spiderman statue?

Little Miss’ Birthday

For whatever reason, our birthdays are clumped in the family. What’s slightly funny is that once this catchup post goes lives we’ll be approaching the next clump.

I’ll catch up eventually. 😉

Little Miss is up next in the rotation though. I think she was pleased with the day.

Yes, that’s 14 candles.

Then we snuck in a couple of parental poses.


And then priorities: pictures with big red, whether Big Red wanted them or not. :p



Something that’s become traditional for Little Miss’ birthdays is that we fry food. It started with her requesting onion rings and has evolved to basically everything goes in the fryer, especially when it manages to land on a weekend like it did this year.

The food didn’t stay on a plate very long but we were able to get this quick shot before the onion rings were gone.

Wintery Days

From what I’ve heard this was an especially wet and snowy winter.

The footage would certainly agree with that.

I did most of my shoveling the night before from this blizzard…

There was still some driveway to street shoveling required.

Once done there I noticed that a neighbor had tried to simply jump the pile the city likes to leave in front of everyone’s driveways.

Take it from personal experience, friend, you’re going to get stuck… and he did.

Shovel in hand I went over to help him out, trying to shoo Redflare back inside from the cold.

Instead, she took this of me helping him out.

On a cold day like this, coming home to warm pasties was especially fantastic.

Heart Food

At some point I missed the memo about if you see a heart in food you’re supposed to give it to your love.

Redflare saved this walnut for me as a loving gesture and then had to explain it since I was confused.

Yep, I kind of deflated the moment a bit. :p

I’ll know foe next time.
