Sir Tristan Hillary

Tristan takes every opportunity to climb. Here he is standing on top of a caterpillar in order to climb over the arm of the chair. I ran over to get him down about the time he flung himself against the back of the chair which began tipping over backward. I lurched forward to "save" him and felt my neck crack in about three places. I'm sure I've given myself whiplash. He, of course, is fine.

Stop Taking Pictures

Julius says, "How many times do I have to tell you -- stop taking pictures of me!"

I say, "Why don't you like me taking your picture?"

His retort, "Well sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. Hey let me see that picture. Cool!"

Nice Turkey

Tristan pets the Thanksgiving turkey. Nice turkey!

Doggone Dirty Shame

Gas pumps made of gold, my pockets full of lint.

Julius and I are sending a letter by air mail. To whom it may concern... If you find this letter, write us back!

Can't Quite Fly

Tristan can't fly with even that many balloons in his pants!

Balloons and Stars

For Tristan's birthday we decorated the room with almost 50 helium balloons and 100 feet of foil stars on fishing line. So pretty! I wish the living room looked like this every day of the year!

Happy Birthday Tristan

Today is Tristan's 1st birthday. This is the dinosaur mountain cake.

Sweeping Up

Tristan is helping mom by sweeping up a rubber chameleon. Important work!

Have Blanket, Will Travel

Tristan drags around a mondo huge comforter. I have no idea what his plan is.

It's a Smokey Day in the Neighborhood

As his first public act, our new neighbor is burning big piles of stuff in his yard. It's a gorgeous, textbook gorgeous, fall day. Perfect day for having all the windows open and enjoying the last pleasant weather before winter hits. I'm shaking my metaphorical fist in anger.

Happy Meal Helmet

The handles of a Happy Meal box are good for more than hanging onto.

Blue Gum

Tristan discovered the joys of special ink gum designed specifically to turn little boys' mouths blue for as long as possible.
