It’s that time of year again. We’ve got the eggnog, Elvis Christmas CD and a yule log ready to go. We’ve also got the semi-annual interactive treecam up and running.

Stop by to say hi, or to control the tree lights and other decorations in our living room. We’ll be around most of the next few days. You might even catch us or Evie playing in the living room! The camera is up 24 hours a day until after Christmas.

New stuff this year includes an iPhone-friendly version and a way to leave comments.

Bert the Farting Hippo

Posted by Matty

This title probably requires some explanation. Chances are, you stopped by the website to see baby pictures, or maybe something that Nanc knitted.

You will be disappointed by this post. Sorry. But now, curiosity should be gripping you. You need to know. Even though you think that fart humor is base and juvenile, you are drawn to click the ‘read more’ link below. It’s not about farting anymore.

Like tiny, blank canvases

Posted by Nanc

Matt and I have been to a few baby stores lately (go figure) and have looked at our fair share of clothes. There’s some awfully cute stuff out there, but mostly if you know the sex of your baby. We don’t.

Not satisfied to accept only the pale green and washed-out yellow pallet, we decided to take this matter into our own hands.

Civic Doody

Posted by Matty

Hi there. Yeah, you. I just wanted to remind you to start thinking about the upcoming presidential election. Chances are that 1 out of every 3 people that read this didn’t vote in the 2004 elections.

I’m gonna make it easy for you.

Posted by Matty

This past weekend was a blur of activity, including buying a truck, gardening, and building gardening accessories.

Alas, the truck has no name, and we are at a stalemate. Click the link to read more and make truck name suggestions.

I recently finished wiring and putting together our den/theater room, and was stumped on how to decorate it. I came up with an idea, which Nanc readily agreed to. (Remember that did you agreed to this, Nancy.)

I thought that it would be fun to decorate the room with props from some of our favorite movies and TV shows. After doing a little more research, I realized that the stuff that I really wanted was just a tad out of my price range.

Being the resourceful guy that I am, I decided to build some of the pieces myself. It’s fun, and keeps me from doing anything useful. My first piece is finished. Pics and details inside.

1-2-3 Bentos

Posted by Nanc

I’ve recently started on a new (to me) craze: bento lunches. You can read up about bentos here and all over the web (there are some fantastic blogs). Simply put, bento is a packed lunch.
