Murphy Waits for Santa

Kids asleep. Presents wrapped. The adults listening to Vince Guaraldi. The homemade cookies left for Santa on a special plate but I have to tell you this is the first I’ve seen a bowl of raw cauliflower and another of water for the reindeer. We always did carrots.
I was looking for a paper clip to try to weave in a loose end of yarn on a knitting project/gift and Marlene produced a package with two yarn needles! Talk about timing. We went to the four o’clock and then Mark and Matthew picked up Persian takeout- another first for Christmas Eve.
Definitely a foggy Christmas Eve. Laura and James coming in the morning. All is quiet, all is calm. Wishing all blog readers a peaceful day, whatever you’re doing on the 25th.

Anna and Her Best Friend

Anna is eight years old today.  I remember going to the hospital in the dark, and then watching the sunrise over the Monongahela River from the window.  Then I went to school after she as born and everyone was so happy for our family. It was a happy day. Here is a portrait of her with Murphy the Airedale when she was one.  It hangs in her bedroom.

And a recent photograph of Anna and Murphy….

  The artist of the painting , Alison Zapata,  is a new mother herself and paints wonderful pet portraits. Her website is here


Murphy the Airedale Loves His Family

One good natured four-legged friend!

In the van on the way to a soccer game, Murphy doesn't seem to mind riding backwards.


Watching Their Brother in his Soccer Game

Beautiful summer Saturday at the Soccer Field.

Watching Michael play in his soccer game. All three cheered when he kicked in a goal.
