We’re Thankful

Thanksgiving was a good one this year. Family came north and family came south; both would eventually converge on our little home in Stafford. With the southern guest checked in to Casa de Wiktor, the burners were lit and the feast was prepared. Thumbs up all around the table as the food tasted even better…

Holiday Round Up

Who cares that we’re nearly 2 months into the new year. Let’s take a look back and see how the Wiktors spent their first East coast Christmas. Our December was jam packed with activities, it’s no wonder three of the four Wiktors were down for the count by the time Christmas arrived. I’m getting ahead…

[O]=TOYOTA=[O]

Much to the delight of Meredith, in the midst of snow-pocalypse there sat in the garage one FJ60, partially in pieces. Her disappointment in the loss of the garage parking spot (during the biggest snow storm in 70 years) was only rivaled by my disappointment in the loss of an opportunity to put the rig…

Snow-pocalypse!!!

I am happy to report we narrowly escaped the chaos that was SNOW-POCALYPSE. Or was is SNOW-MAGEDDON? I don’t know. It was all just so crazy and hard to keep up with… Call me biased but to a guy born and raised in Minnesota, it just seemed like it snowed pretty good for 36 hours…

Full of Thanks

As always, we have plenty to be thankful for in life. It is not that November merits more thankfulness than other months but rather there happens to be a meal with a catchy name this month that helps you not ignore how lucky you are. Among the list of things we are thankful for include…

“New Home?”

“New home?” is the second most commonly used question by William these days (second to “why?” of course). As repetitive as it may be, the answer is always yes. The next adventure has officially started! We closed on the new place in Northern Virginia this month. Sight unseen by me until closing day, to say…

The Sun Sets on San Diego

Well, all good things must come to an end. The house went on the market and then the house was sold. Bags were packed, one last group of friends came to visit, and 3/4’s of the Wiktors said goodbye to the last San Diego sunset they’ll see for a while. After six years of fun…

It’s beginning to look a lot like…

It’s beginning to look a lot like…. the same as every other sunny San Diego day? While it may still be 75 and sunny, signs of Christmas are popping up here in San Diego. Since we don’t have the change of seasons here to let us know the big man is coming with gifts, we…

Will’s 2nd Birthday

William’s birthday definitely didn’t lack celebration this year. He had not one or two, but four rounds of birthday candles to blow out. It was such a treat spending the week leading up to his birthday with family which allowed for all the extra celebrating. Sophia and Will certainly didn’t mind all the extra cake…
