Baby Girl

Here's a 3-D ultrasound of our little girl taken last week. She's due to arrive on May 16th. Posted by Picasa


We went to Kauai last week as our last escape before the baby gets here. Unfortunately, it rained every day. These weren't sprinkles either but torrential rain. In fact, the day after we got back, a dam broke in the northern part of the island.

So no sun bathing on the beach this time. However, we did enjoy a helicopter tour of the island - our first ride in one of those contraptions. It was so comfy, I dozed off! Posted by Picasa

Oscar Night at Betta and Hayssam's

Oscar Night 2006 was a lot of fun at Betta and Hayssam's lovely home. The best part was Betta's amazing cooking.

As for the Oscars - Wow! I thought Brokeback Mountain would have a clean sweep!

Here's a cute picture of Hayssam with son Nabil. Posted by Picasa
