Little Lady sketched her first outfit for the dress designer
kit she got from Aunt L and Uncle D.

(the white satin was a pre-made dress you can use as
a base for adding designs)

Kitty found her favorite resting spot… Grandpa’s lap.


At my birthday party, Aunt J said.  “I want pulled pork and a cake
from Donut Bank for my birthday.”

Grandma and Grandpa were coming up for the weekend.  They were
nice enough to bring the cake.  I got up at 6am to smoke the pork.

Aunt J baked a cake (never too many desserts).


Happy Birthday!

My friends and I played a new version of Risk called Risk Legacy.

You modify the board as you play each game.  At the end of 15 games
you will have a unique board you have created.

We played the first 4 games.  It was a blast… even though I have not
yet won a game.

We had a 1st generation iPod nano.  (bought 5 years ago)

There was a recall due to a battery problem.  (we never had any problems
with the original Nano)

We sent the 2GB Nano back to Apple and they returned a new
8GB model!

It is very small (seen here).  It has a built in FM receiver too.

I am an Apple fanboy now.

My babies played hookie.

Little Man got his dental expander and lower lip bumper installed today.
(he was brave)

As a precaution, we kept Little Lady home due to her lingering fever. 
(she was actually fine all day) 


The boys worked on electrical circuits at the Den meeting.

In a surreal moment, the family looked at a slide show of the
2008 SnapOATS pictures.


Mom wanted a “before” picture.  Tomorrow, he get
goes to the orthodontist.

In gutty performance, Little Lady tried out for the talent show.

She had a fever of 99.9  (if she had 100, the nurse would have sent her
home and she would not have got to try out!)

Mom said they did great!

(Mom organized the routine and all of the practices)
