Virtual Christmas Letter

Merry Christmas Everyone! This is year 2 of the virtual Chrismas letter. We are trying to be more green and it is really amazing how much paper goes out as letters.

We had a little bit of a rough year : ( The car broke down (permanantly), we had to get a car, I burned my hand, Jayne and I had an accident at a park (Nicole and Eric will remember that one), our sewage line got crushed, and I lost my job (they closed). On a lighter note, Adam and I got a couples massage for valentines day and decided we really liked it, Jayne got the rest of his teething done, we opened (which has been going well, check it out if you haven't already), Jayne turned 2, and while I am not fond of it, I was able to find a new job right away after losing the last one. oh, and I am being considered to illustrate a children's book about alpacas : D

We have some huge plans for the next 2 years. We are working REALLY hard to get rid of some of our bill so that I can stay home with Jayne and do the crazy elephant as my job. It is going to mean a lot of sacrifices on our part, but the reward will be wonderful. We are celebrating 10 years together this year, with 5 years married. We don't know how we are going to celebrate yet. We might sign Jayne up for Early childhood this fall, depending on how things go. And we plan on doing several shows with the Crazy Elephant this year depending on scheduling.

We are looking forward to a fun and exciting, but uneventful, new year.

Merry Christmas.
The Morgan Family : )

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.


Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
