An eventful few days at the Williams house: Elliot can ride a two-wheeler (a bike sans training wheels) and Audrey had her first haircut. Pictures to follow soon.

The Gift That Keeps on Giving (Literally), alternatively titled: Mother’s Day is When??

In case you’re still looking for a Mother’s Day gift, here’s a gift that does good (and will arrive in time): a donation to Unitus.

Unitus envisions a world where microfinance is available to every individual. We work toward this vision by accelerating the growth of the world’s highest-potential emerging microfinance institutions. We provide capital investments and capacity-building consulting, thus empowering these organizations to scale and provide life-changing financial services to dramatically more of the world’s working poor.

You can make a donation in your mom’s name here.

Elliot Hams it Up

Elliot can spell his name and sing the ABC’s. Although you wouldn’t be convinced from this video. He’s just too much of a ham!

Elliot’s Room

Elliot now lives in a space themed room. He tells me he likes our house, but loves his room. The ceiling and top 18″ of the wall are painted purple (the pictures aren’t completely color accurate), the remaining 6 1/2 feet are orange. Not Bronco Orange, a subdued orange, but orange nonetheless.

Here’s the new light fixture, complete with astronauts.

The planets are Wallies and are placed in an aesthetically pleasing arrangement, not in their proper order. Also, the sun is not to scale. But they’re pretty.


Audrey thinks this is her play room.


Excuse Me?

A few nights back it was time to brush kids’ teeth. I told Audrey it was time to go to the bathroom. Without missing a beat, she said, “No. Busy.”
