Baby Winter, 28 Weeks

Today TM and I went into Edinburgh to get a 3d-4d ultrasound. Baby Winter was relatively reluctant to show her face, though we were able to get these short video shots:

Stay tuned--I will post the still images when I receive them in the mail!

Utter-ly Lovely

A couple of weeks ago, our dear Friends Ben and Brandy Utter came to visit us here in the Kingdom of Fife. Their presence provided a much appreciated break from my daily routine of procrastination and Thomas More's daily routine of...leisure. Highlights of the trip include: a day-trip to Edinburgh, 1920s style "hickory" golf, highland games at Blair Castle, Loch Ness, and the Isle of Skye (!!).

***Note on the format of this post: recently I have been inspired by my oh-so-talented little brother, who has a blog entirely dedicated to that ancient form of verse, the haiku (see: Haikus by Reeder). I found his blog so hilarious and weird that I decided to write some haiku myself as captions for the following photos... However, I am not blessed with little bro's hilariousness, so the haikus fizzled... If you think of any appropriate 5-7-5 captions feel free to post them in response below. I claim writer's block.***

Welcome to Scotland.
Please avoid falling off cliffs
as this could cause death.

Behold his highness
full regal in his courtroom.
Hail, laird of haggis.

hiyah alls you's there!
Look at us we're i' the box!
Are you embarrassed?
Jet-lag hath no power
over Utters strong and good.
Smile, you Utters, smile!

My mashie niblick
Is bigger than your mashie.
Real men play "the golf."

Don't be envious.
My cologne improves my swing:
the Smell of Success.

This is a big dog.
This is a really big dog.
This is one big dog.
