Jingle Bells

For your viewing pleasure...a duet of Jingle Bells by musicians Spencer and Grant. (The whining heard in the background is the dog!)

Chess Lounge

This is a picture from the VT Chess Lounge where Spencer enjoys spending a few hours on Saturdays. Chuck is a gifted chess teacher and gives generously of his time. Spencer has been working with him since early summer and the two have a great rapport. Both kids are off to a tournament at VT today so I'll report back with results later.

From the big night in the neighborhood! This year Robert hauled the trailer with the kids and fortunately, we didn't lose any off the back end.

Waiting by his victim...

We don't generally let the cats on the counter but for some reason Munchie and Grant have this breakfast ritual. Munchie stations himself close by, monitoring the cereal eating, but trying not to look toooo interested. When Grant is finished, the Munch tries to swoop in for a few laps of milk. (Don't they both look guilty in the bottom picture?)
