Well, I think we've decided to keep this one. She is awful cute and I sure do love her a lot.


Little Walter got a Slip-n-slide (sp? slip & slide?) for his birthday. We (meaning not me) took it outside and played for a bit. I am pretty much anti-watersports so I was the picture taker while the boys played.

Can you tell that he loved it?


This guy enjoyed it too and I just know that he will love me for posting this picture.
Oh, and yes, I am aware that we have the moveable sprinkler spraying the slide. The water tube part had a hole and sometimes we just can't control our hick-ish ways.

Bobby's Home

I think the biggest thing that has happened around here lately is Bobby's return from his mission in Argentina. I can't imagine the culture shock he is going thru (and the shock of seeing how all the little one's have grown) but we are really glad to have him home.

Little Walter is especially glad because he knows that once Uncle Bobby comes home we can get ready to go to the beach. That little guy isn't self-serving or anything.


Little Walter is 3

I can't believe that my little baby is 3. Sure, he was born a long time ago and I have had another baby since then, but three years just doesn't seem right.
He was really starting to understand the idea of a birthday party this time around so I thought it would be fun to have his friends over for a BBQ and some play time. There were about 35 people total and it was a lot of fun. The kids ran themselves ragged and were a bunch of big sweat balls by the end of the party. Walter went to sleep very easily that night.
I am grateful for everyone that shared in the fun with us. We love you all.

It isn't a party unless you stick a kid in a garbage can. In this case it was Kobe. Poor kid.

This is community candle-blowing. It's very popular around these parts.
