The Big Guns

They brought out the big guns today to hoist the new kitchen appliances up onto the deck (and then on into the kitchen by hand and dolly). It was really too bad Matteo wasn't there to see it; he would have been beside himself.

Wait, You Say It's Fun Learning Verses?

How do kids come to find memorizing hundreds of Bible verses fun? One word - Awana. And they grow in the faith in many other ways through this program as well. Tonight was awards night, followed by ice cream "and stuff"! There's no trouble getting the kids fired up to go to Awana, they fire themselves up. Some day we'll get some photos of drive-in movie night...

So, Who Wants a Kitty?...

The second litter is all grown up and ready to go...

They must have a fabulous sense of hearing.

The "Big Discovery" at the Festival

There's someone new to the central coast, just moved here a few months ago from Colorado. The exciting aspect - he's a children's story writer and illustrator. And those fortunate enough to stumble upon him near the Mason Street Bridge were lucky indeed. His illustrations literally jump out at you, begging to be explored. Lynn kept saying, "writing prompt, writing prompt, writing prompt..." And he'll visit schools and do creativity sessions by grade level! Yes, we bought one of every book he had, and would have bought one of every work of art, too, if money were no object. His name is Mark Ludy:

Like a Big Pizza Pie...

Our kitchen remodel guru invited us over Sunday afternoon for a "little BBQ" while the floor guy was stinking up the house with a finish coat. The "little BBQ" turned out to be quite the affair! Including make-your-own pizzas that the kids really enjoyed. You could almost hear Matteo singing Italian opera!...

Southwest Headquarters...

We're no longer home to just 9 souls, we're also now the Southwest Headquarters of Matt's new company. So a suitable office was in order. And while we were at it, Robob thought the breezeway (located right outside the office door) could use some furniture. Boy, he hit that nail on the head!


If you're looking for a kitchen update:

What - Camels in the Village ?!

It's true! Or should I say it was true during the Strawberry Festival. As one of the kids pointed out, there were enough camels there to make a manger scene! (You know how many that is, right.)

Then, who would you expect to see riding a train?!...

First Birthday

Can you believe it, the twins are a year old!? And to celebrate, it's cake for the very first time! The dam has broken. Let the sugar flow begin! Oh, wait, sorry Jen, you say this doesn't mean they can have doughnuts all the time? Bummer.

Head over Heels

All four Regusci kids are now gymnasts, even AJ, at Performance Athletics (PA). They all love it, by the way. And all but AJ were part of a demo that PA did at SLO's Farmers Market (5/10/12). Enjoy...

No Longer Virgin Ikeans

As we crested the stairs from the monstrous parking lot, there before us, rising from the mire of the mundane and ordinary, was our destination - Ikea. Yes, we journeyed unto Burbank where this mecca of home projects pulses to the comings and goings of countless people searching for meaning amongst the midnight blues and yellows. It was office furniture we sought, and we did find. Amen.
