deborah sings georgia

This was a moment of pride. Deborah performed at a talent show called the BAM Factor. She has such a pretty, smooth voice - an unusual and lovely voice, especially a 12 year old. Have a listen. You'll be impressed. Read more →

lethbridge dragon boat festival

This race wasn't our finest performance, but I think you'll agree that it's not exactly a poor performance either. My team in Wahine Kei Waka (lane 2). We photo finished in 4th place. That means it was so close between 3rd and 4th place that the winner was determined by photo. No medal for Wahine. This race was in Lethbridge Alberta a few weekends ago. This past weekend, we raced in Leduc Alberta. We raced... Read more →


deborah's french narrative

Do you want to see a wittle Dutch girl speak French? This is Deborah doing a narrative in French. She kind of goes overboard explaining it in English. Feel free to jump to the French part. I only know one language so seeing Deborah speaking French is a thrill for me. I love her expressive-ness. Watch it long enough to see her emote. :-) Join me in the thrill, will you? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRDOHi0Ot_c Read more →

White Diamonds isn't "me" anymore but it's what I wore on our wedding day so I wear it every May 22. Last... Read more →


deborah's recital

Perhaps you recall that one of my 2009 goals is to post regularly on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I hope you've noticed so far, so good. Tuesday evening Deborah had a piano recital. I videoed her at the recital but I couldn't capture her face. I videoed her at home too and captured her sweet little face and hands. It's a sweet video of my little musician. She plays four songs. The last one is... Read more →


hannah's video

Hannah is a goon. She's always coming up with weird zany things to say and do, sometimes producing some hilarious concoctions. The context of this video is the dogs chasing the cat. One dog actually got her cornered and, bam, Tawny surprised the dog with a paw in the face. Now we are over-using that phrase around here: "Bam, paw in the face." Enjoy. And please comment as Hannah is so embarrassed that I posted... Read more →
