Site Updated!

Welcome to our new site! Because we have such a beautiful kid, we decided it was time to move our stuff over to a site that has no connection to our last name, just to guard against the crazies. Sad, isn't it? Anyway, this new format will be much easier for us to update, so you can anticipate that we'll be updating a lot more often and posting A LOT more pictures.

The other big news is that we splurged on an account at Flickr. It's a huge photo sharing tool, incidentally started by a bunch of Vancouverites, that allows us to upload a virtually unlimited number of pictures. It's also a cool place to check can see photos from people all over the world. Some of the pictures are amazing! We like it because we can upload lots of pictures and not have to worry about eating up too much space (our old site was huge, and we were going to have to start taking pictures down soon). The other nice thing is that pictures are very high quality, so you can print them right from the site without too much fuzziness (should keep the grandparents happy!).

We've transferred a large selection of photos of Amanda onto Flickr - most of the ones from the old site (although we may have missed a few), as well as some different ones. And because of the large upload capacity, we will probably be posting at least a few new pictures every week. (Ya right - like Jen can restrain herself to only a few a week!!). You can easily link to our entire collection of photos on Flickr by clicking the photo badge on the top right. The only downside - we can't post videos on Flickr, so no videos have yet been posted. We'll figure out a way to do this soon.

So how can you stay updated with the news from our corner of the universe, and all the new pictures of the world's cutest girl? (No bias at all!!). If you use an RSS aggregator, like newsgator (Jen's choice) or Google Reader (Jeff's), you can add our site's address to your feed list and you will automatically see all the updates.

But, if you're not a nerd like us, feel free to drop us an email and we'll be happy to send you a quick email whenever the site is updated. Just be prepared for lots of emails! :)

Please let us know what you think of the new site! We've set up a special email address for this site, again so our last name is invisible ( All emails to this address will automatically be forwarded to Jen.

One more note...if you do notice anything on this site that gives away our last name, please let us know so we can fix it!
