Welcome to www.imastewart.com!

Here's the long awaited update – with emphasis on the word long since it's been about a year since the last update. The quarterly updates have seem to turned into annual updates – those with children will understand!

A great deal has happened since last December: both kids are in school, Charlie is a Mr. Mom at night, and Sharon is two-thirds through culinary school!

The Kids
These past 12 months have been quite busy for us.

Cameron graduated from VPK in June and followed that up with a kindergarten enrollment this past August. His favorite pastime right now is playing anthing electronic: Wii, Nintendo DS, iPhone, Nook! Remarkably, we do get him to do some reading from time to time! He's still into cars, soccer, and basketball, and he just celebrated his 6th birthday with a Chuck E. Cheese party!

Samantha has had a pretty healthy year. She started pre-school in August, but she'd much rather stay home and play with mommy. Her formal title is Princess Samantha – just ask her! – and her royal court includes the Disney Princesses, even a Sleeping Beauty doll to sleep with. She's a budding artist, performing solo concerts for us!

Sharon is still in school and loving it – and doing great as well! She started culinary college in January 2011 at Le Cordon Bleu in Orlando, FL. She does bring some of her "work" home – the family thoroughly enjoyed her bread courses!

Charlie mans the homefront with the kids at night while the Mrs. is at school. And he thought his day job was difficult!

      Featured Slide Show      
A continuing feature to the site – a quick picture slide show of something recent and interesting for us.

This set of pictures is from Cameron and Samantha's most recent visit to see Santa Claus at a local mall. This sequence mirrors the experiences from the last two years, except this year Samantha bravely and pleasantly sat on Santa's lap! Looking back, here's the best picture of 2009 and the best picture of 2010.






      Featured Video      
Continuing with this site's video feature – on every update we'll put a new video up. It will most likely be of the kids, of course!

This time around another two new videos! One is from the summer with the kids hamming it up for the camera and the other is of Halloween 2011!

Tidbits
1. In early December 2011, we visited the happiest place on earth: Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom! The kids loved it, plus they got to meet a lot of their favorite people too.
2. In 2010 we converted from a Christmas Card to a Christmas Letter. It worked out so well we decided to do it again in 2011! So here are the 12th and 13th installments of an annual Stewart tradition.

9/11 FDNY Hero

A tribute to our friend Jimmy Pappageorge. He will forever be in our loving memories.
  Click on: Updated on 12/23/2001.

There is a memorial bench placed in Jimmy Pappageorge's honor on the boardwalk in Long Beach, NY. The bench is placed between Riverside & Edward Streets – between light posts #59 and #60. It is right by the volleyball nets where he loved playing, where we all gathered, and now, where we can sit and contemplate the great, long-lasting memories we all built together...
