uncle bill is really christina's uncle.
and everyone calls him uncle bill.
once upon a time...
bill met a beautiful girl from finland who came to america to be a nanny. it was love at first sight. bill taught leena how to speak english, and 40 years later her accent is as thick and adorable as it ever was. they are a real life example of how much fun marriage can be. christina and tim hope to be just like them some day.
uncle bill is a master craftsman and artist. he and aunt leena moved south to retire and be close to family. he makes the most beautiful one of a kind things out of wood...dulcimers, boats, furniture...
when he is not busy being the best uncle in the world,
making aunt leena laugh,
and sculpting wood,
he generously helps us out building bookshelves,
installing window treatments,
assembling furniture, and such.
he is ridiculously overqualified for the job so we were not at all surprised when he won the award for best of the best handyman in charlotte.
we really do not know what we would do without him.
