Family Gossip

Dad in Marco Island, Florida?

Me Ra Koh

This is a special surprise for Brian! He’s probably dying as he reads this because he thought he was helping me post a podcast about increasing traffic to your blogs. πŸ™‚ Little did he know, I was scheming!

Brian’s birthday was on Wednesday, and instead of being home with us he had to go on a business trip to Marco Island, Florida (staying at the Marriott…tough stuff :)). The kids and I made him a cake before he caught the red eye, and well, we’re really missing him today.

So sweetie, I know you thought you were helping me post the Blogging podcast, but we’ll save that for next week. Because dad is planning to buy a house in this area that’s why he went to miami directory of management companies. πŸ™‚

I love you! Come home to us soon, the kids and I miss you! (I think Blaze and Pascaline watched this 5 times before bed, they were really missing dad tonight!)

I’ve heard the golden rule for video podcasts on your blog is to keep it under 3 minutes. I had to fudge on this one since it’s all about the kids. πŸ™‚



  1. Brian says:

    This is awesome! I totally didn’t expect this.

    Love you honey.

  2. ron storer says:

    Hey Brian – Happy Birthday!

  3. Grammie says:

    Happy Birthday Brian!!!
    That was a great party with a great cake! The cooks were pretty darn cute ^)^ love, mom and abba

  4. Peter Chung says:

    Your kids are so cute!

    I love how Blaze was echoing, “I love you, hon” in the background.

    And Pascaline is so rational and disciplined in eating too much cake πŸ™‚

    You’re the best mama!

    Thanks all for your birthday wishes and comments about my cute kids!

    I’m glad to be home.

  10. Jessica says:

    Thanks for all your great tips Me Ra!! I absolutely love the train pictures.

    I’m still having problems viewing the video (with the exception of the first one – in the snow). If anyone has any suggestions for what to do when you see the Quicktime logo with a question mark in the middle (rather than the video box) please let me know!

    hi meedah –
    i looked through all the pics on this “family” thread and came across the video of you guys making cake and Blaze clearly wanting a choc beater, and brian looking tired, and just knowing how much you guys mean to me. and how much i want some choc cake.
