Emma's first sunburn of the year. She was asleep on my back so its only on one side of her face!

But she's still a cutie...

And oh so purty...

Some pictures from last summer in Alaska

I don't think you ever got to see some of the pics from Alaska -- a very beautiful state. The first pic is of a "calving" glacier -- gigantic hunks of ice floating in the water...the second of Don on our balcony...the third in a small town known for its totem poles...the fourth just a cool pic of a small town which seems to grow right out of the ocean.

Meet My Peeps....

I'm probably going to post this on my other blog. Just an FYI, but it feels like cheating. LOL.

More pictures from Mexico

Here's some more pictures from Mexico -- this time more than the iguana.

Got a henna tattoo. This one didn't last too long, though. It is so faded now that it looks really bad. Don says it looks like a prison tattoo. (Now, how does he know about that????)

Me and Ingrid at the Mexican Fiesta night. Seems like several of the photos have drinks (or multiple drinks) in front of me.


Picture in front of the flower fountain. I think the day before we left to come home.

I don't have a good title

Just some pictures of the kids.... Emma's new dress and Ethan getting in on the action.

He loves to have his picture taken. But when he poses for the camera, this is what you get:

I am back from Mexico -- got up way too early this morning but getting some stuff done (laundry, pictures, unpacking, etc.) These are some great pictures of the iguana that lived at the pool in Mazatlan.

Emma Reading

Emma reading in her new big girl bed... more on that here.

She was reading this book and having a grand ole time.

And then she bent it backwards and then...

I love that her expression is one of great confusion. :)

Ethan with Goop

He loved it. Emma - not so much. I didn't get a pic of her crying as soon as it touched her hand. She's quite prissy you know.

Ethan is Laundry

I don't know why he loves to sit in our laundry sorter.... but he sure does. This is an old-ish pic - but my computer/camera something just ate my new pics. Bummer. Maybe I will be able to find them in the morning. Its too late for pictures. :)

Valentine Day Display in the kitchen

So, I change these shelves out by season -- and here is the Valentine Display. How cute, huh?
OK, next week will be more interesting because I will upload my pics from Mexico.

My orchid bloomed

I got this orchid from Jessie for my birthday (I think my 60th!!!) After it blooms and loses its flowers, it looks like a stick with big healthy leaves. But, this one seems to bloom every year on or around my birthday. It's snowing today -- so the tropical flower is a bit bizarre with a background outside of a big snow!

Picture on the cow...

It was so QUIET (and a bit of a bummer) Monday night... :-(

Reindeer Ears

Ethan made reindeer ears at preschool before Christmas. We found them and had fun taking turns wearing them.

Here is the resulting cuteness. :)

Big Cat Kitty is waiting to see you guys next week...or is he waiting to see if the "over the fence gang" is outside HIS house?

Snow at Grandma Barb's

We had a big snow Saturday and Sunday -- Today it looks like it will warm up and maybe all the snow will melt. Sun is out -- and the temp should get to the 40's today.

New Car

This remote control car was a Christmas present from Auntie Terry. Ethan had a ball playing with it.

Um, who's toy is it, anyway?

This is Don -- pretty happy that we have wireless now -- and that he can surf his fave spots without having to go to the cold basement!
So, just hanging out on New Year's, planning 2009. Checking out eBay -- Craig's List -- auction sites. And, the extra good news for today -- airline prices for Las Vegas <--> Colorado Springs. Vanessa and the kids are coming for a visit later this month
