Hah! Guess what?

I found our camera. I had looked under the bed about ten times, but I guess I didn't realize that I couldn't see all the way over to Jeff's side under there. I am so elated to finally have a camera again-- we lost it after Thanksgiving. I swore that it was somewhere in the house, but I was beginning to lose hope. I'll put up a silly picture of Amelia that was on it still.

I think I'll also show you my latest project. H. Shack should be particularly interested in this one, since she encouraged me to do it about three years ago! I have an old Danish modern style chair from Uncle Elmer's. I had actually covered the gross plastic cushions with material and scotch tape and a couple of thumb tacks (!) for the past few years. It's kind of embarassing. Anyway, I FINALLY bought new foam and some materials to upholster them with, and it is amazing how much better that chair looks. I was walking past it just now to find some place to sit, and I stopped and went back to it-- I hadn't really thought of it as an actual functional chair! I snapped a smug picture of myself enjoying my handiwork (with hot chocolate from Filipino pure cacao!)

More pictures DEFINITELY to come!!!

Very nice work! (Finding the camera, doing the chair and making that chocolate!) And you look as cute as can be!

Glad you found your camera and glad that returned home from a productive trip. I am really excited for you guys!
And yes, I think you all could pass for a northwerstern family. If you really want to be convincing, though, Jeff needs to grow a nice, thick beard.
Anyways, your hair looks great, Amelia is adorable and I still need to call you. I need to come see you! I will have to pack up the kid and my big pregnant self and drive up for a visit. SOON!
