Our Minecraft World

Well hello! Surprise! This blog is still alive!

About two years ago, Aaron started playing Minecraft by himself, single player mode.  This summer, he asked me to set up a Minecraft multi-player server on one of my Linux boxes, so I did.  Then I joined.  Then Ethan and Justin joined.  Then our next door neighbors joined, too.  Now, we have a little neighborhood with houses, walkways, a library, and it’s all surrounded by a moat.

I went back and organized the snaps I had been saving from our world, and put them in time order in a photo gallery.  So you can now see the development of our little world yourself!

Enjoy our Minecraft World.

Happy New Year!

First, the obligatory:

Before our usual – gourmet meats and cheeses, Ice Wine for the adults, and Gourmet cherry cola, cream soda, and ginger ale for the kids – we went to a friends house for an “early new years”; we played games, danced, ate snacks and generally made merry.  The whole shebang is available online, here. I might add some more videos later.

Hanukkah 2011 – 8th Candle Lighting

Ah, the last day.  It’s always bittersweet.  As in, SWEET! IT’S OVER! But, still, a bit of sadness.  I like taking pictures of the menorahs in various stages of burning, especially on the eighth day.

First, we have a full menorah, candles blazing:

And then we have the one remaining flicker of flame, on one last menorah…

Last Flicker

 

Here are some more menorah pictures.  I hope that whatever holiday you celebrate, it was wonderful this year.

Next Up: New Years Eve….
