Fiona Loves Two Dot

Remember this tiny little thing?
Two Dot did not know what to think of her then.
She still doesn't.

They seem to like each other.
I know Fiona likes Two Dot.

When Fiona isn't following me around.
She is usually somewhere like this.


I wish my legs were that long!

Ahhhhhh, Papa

Chloe loves watching Mickey Mouse Club House.
For one hour of the day she is glued to her shows.
(only Mickey Mouse)
Eyes glued she is intently watching every movement, listening to every squeaky little voice and song. 
Peaceful in her relaxation of the afternoon.
School is over.
Her tummy is full.


OH, but life is even sweeter when Papa shows up home early from work.
Then she can share her cinematic joy with one of her favorite people in the world.
How much better can life get?



Look at her little face, smiling but still glued to Mickey.
Her little foot tilted up as she cuddles her Papa.

Shhh. This is the interesting part.

 Fiona walking by can distract her from the T.V. but, not from Papa.
Chloe doesn't really fully appreciate Fiona yet.
She will. One day.

30 Years

Celebrations and Milestones


My birthday is on the 7th. My son Oby's is on the 11th.


Papa and I celebrate our anniversary on the 10th. April is a busy month.
When Oby was growing up he would tell people he was born the day after Papa and I got married.
The picture above is us laughing it up on my nana's couch. I think it was Christmas. Those pants I have on are pink corduroy.

As you can see we laughed a lot and still do.
I remember exactly what we were laughing at in this photo.
My dad was taking our engagement pictures. If you notice my right arm looks as if it is going into the swat position. Papa was talking a little dirty. I will spare you. I also was dying because my dad was right there.
He was on a ladder in the middle of a creek but, he STILL was right there.
We too are in the middle of the creek, standing on a huge icy rock. I'll have to post our engagement pic. one day.
Well this was our 30th wedding anniversary.
Four kids and eight grand kids later I still am crazy about that guy!
Tara made a darling video of us through the years. I can't figure out how to get it to my blog. I know I am a dork.
If you are interested go to Tara's and take a look.  Thanks Tara!
I love the stuff she puts together for us.

San Fran

Papa trying to get warm with some snuggly boys.
It was freezing.



View of the Golden Gate Bridge from the Presidio (I don't know if that is the right spelling)
It is so beautiful there.
It was freezing.

Here are Henry and William. Will is a future tattoo artist...

Too bad he's not any good at it.


William got himself ready to go out in the rain.
It was freezing.

We had a slight skirmish over the umbrella.
It was freezing.

Will has some serious scooter skills.



Papa had to keep him rounded up.



Henry and P.J.

Look at William's face.

I'm Back

Well, I finally got my computer fixed.


We have a wonderful friend who flies by when he can and helps us out.
Thank you Mike, err I mean Super Man.
I made a deal with my DIL Tara that I would post tons of pictures of our family.
Then at the end of the year she makes us a FAB CD of our families events.

I know this will bore some of you to death so feel free to just ignore.
I will be playing catch up for a couple of days.

Papa and Madison.

Fiona after she got her tail docked.


Zeke and Izzy at Zeke's B Day party.

Madison is crying becuase she knows she is going to get a big fat kiss.

Mr. hot air blowing out his candle.

Then licking the frosting off of the cake.

St Patrick Day beauties.

Chloe has a crush on Anthony.

This is not a real depiction of Fiona by any means.

Cousins.

Madison and Chloe

T.V. buds.

Just hanging out.


Izzy made this hat at the art museum.

I wish big butt's were always considered cute.

Zeke is quite the little man.


So cute.

My new bike.

More T.V. watching, napping.


Fiona grows every single day.



The gruesome twosome. They love each other now.

Zeke.
