More signs of Spring

My brother Gerry is an ARTIST when is comes to cooking on a barbecue grill. The picture is of his latest creation that we partook of at his house on Saturday night. It was unbelievably delicious! He has many other talents as well. But his skills as a chef are way up there.

Happy Birthday Krystle!

Aunty Naomi still calls you "Krystle Dolly" even though Uncle Byron stopped calling you "Lil Bit" quite a while ago. Seems everyone has a story or two about your growing up years. You have told a story or two, yourself, in your growing up years!!! We are proud of the woman you have become. A beautiful and Godly young woman. Happy Happy Birthday. We love you.

Looks like Spring

Yep. Snow last week but today it's beginning to look like Spring. Flowers are blooming. Trees are budding. Young children are sprouting bunny ears.

A boy and his dog...

I have a little guy that LOVES dogs! He and his brother want one sooooo bad. We have cats. Not that I don't like cats. Cats are cool, independent, can be left with a bowl of food and some water and their necessity box and there you go. You can be gone for quite a long time. Dogs however are like very needy small children. Can't leave them for long. If we didn't have cats, we may try to make the necessary adjustments to our household to get a dog. But that is impossible at this time. Also I am looking for a breed that doesn't have fur or one that has fur which doesn't fall out. I am also looking for a breed that doesn't, for lack of a better word, poop. So as cute as all those puppies are at Scamp's, as adorable as the puppies at the pound and those featured on Craig's List, I've yet to find one that doesn't have hair or poop. Until the other day when I found the perfect dog and brought him home. Cam has gotten quite attached to him. His name is Slappy. He is a "Dalmation-wood". We like him a lot.

Light Sabres

Do light sabres really work? Genevieve was getting an intro to weaponry from her Uncle Hayden while her Aunty Cherise was holding her. We had a bunch of our "Kids" home for the weekend. Jess, Joylynn, Wyatt and Genevieve spent the night Thursday. Cherise came to Portland to get some dental work done, get her eyes checked one more time while she is still on our insurance and to go to a concert with her Dad. The concert was enjoyed by both of them. I have enjoyed hearing Jamie Cullum's music floating through the house for the past couple of days myself. Reminds me of the music I enjoyed in my high school and college years. Very cool. I'm updating this blog while waiting to see Jamie on the Tonight Show. I think I know what Har is going to want me to get him for his birthday. May even have to get a Shuffle to load them on to.
