It's Official

Brenna is engaged. She wants 8-8-08 as the date. Keep that in mind and in your prayers as they start to plan for this next step!

Pajama Day

Tessa had pajama day on Thursday. How comfortable would that be to go to work in our pj's? She is holding a flashlight in her hands. They also had this reading with flashlight moment. I know she would have liked to be there for that.

Happy Valentine's Day

A little treat for work, and hoping it tastes ok as I was tweaking the recipe at the last minute.

A Toddler's Tea Party!!

Thanks, Melissa, this one put a smile on my face.

One day my mother was out and my dad was in charge of me and
my brother, who is four years older than I am. I was maybe 1 and a
half years old or 2, and had just recovered from an accident in
which my arm had been broken, among other injuries.

Someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a get-well gift
and it was one of my favorite toys. Daddy was in the living
room engrossed in the evening news and my brother was
playing nearby in the living room when I brought Daddy a
little cup of 'tea', which was just water. After several cups
of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came
home. My Dad made her wait in the living room to watch
me bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest

My Mom waited, and sure enough, here I come down the
hall with a cup of tea for Daddy and she watches him drink
it up, then says, 'Did it ever occur to you that the only place
that baby can reach to get water is the toilet?'

The Sunrise

I looked out the window as Tessa and I were getting ready to leave the house. The colors were spectacular. I tried to catch them with the camera, but it always seems to fall short. Just imagine the hues being much deeper! Now the flakes fall, even that can be strangely beautiful.

Good Morning World, is it COLD enough for you? The cameras at this house have been silent for a few days. Life was NICE and quiet, just the way I like it. If Tessa would not have had the art thing to go to on Saturday, we would NOT have left the house.

John had the pleasure of playing dolly Doctor. Tessa was using hand cleanser and some of it dropped on her doll's eye lashes. The lashes fell off and so he was able to reattach them with glue. You would have thought it was the end of the world at the time. I was more curious why she was using the cleanser in the first place?

I had the pleasure of getting our taxes done. IT went faster than I thought it would. I had warned John that I would need to sit at his computer, so while I was doing that, he put supper in the crock pot. IT smelled so good all day. You did a great job!

Do you ever wish there were two of you? I never seem to get everything done like I want to. Now that the weekend has flown by, I need to face the work week. Mondays are always a bit of a struggle, I have to leave the house. Mom, when you are ready to write you can send me more photos. Susan, hello and hope this is a great day for you!

Shock and Fright!

Max has been leaving me with a rather large range of emotions. I had just gotten home from work and looked forward to just a few minutes of quiet. I am sitting in my chair and all of the sudden the little mister takes a run at me, somehow jumps into my chair, climbs up my side and sits on my head. To say I was surprised is putting it mildly.

I put them outside and was calling them back in when he would not come back. I put Nakita back out and if she would NOT have been looking under my deck I would have never dreamed he was there. He did NOT make a sounds. I pulled him out after moving some snow. I just wish I knew where he got in at. I thought I was going to have to call in the rescue.

Lori, I know you have had a taste of Max for the day. HE sure does have lots on energy, and just when one lays down the other one gets going again. Now to try and get some supper started. That is always interesting when they both are in the kitchen getting under my feet. How is everyone, enjoying the SNOW? Have a great evening!
