Here are my sweet daughters with their dad and Aunt Beth during the year of the Sasoonish haircuts. I believe this was the Thanksgiving when I worked all day at the hospital and came home suffering a raging case of food poisoning. My gratitude on this holiday was that I was still alive the next morning.

This is a picture that was taken in Illinois on a summer trip when I was about the age Becky is now and my mom was about the age I am now. It's a little humorous that I felt so old then and not so old now. My mom is always thought to be about 10 or 15 years younger than actually she is. I hope I was blessed with those genes. Strangely enough, Becky's and my front teeth have grown closer together without orthodontia. Mine not so much as Becky's which are nearly perfect. A nostalgia feeling day for me this is.

minuscule number that I would actually let anyone see. It's just increbile to me how you can have instant access and editing with these. Last night while discovering how to eliminate the flash, I took these shots of a floral arrangement with different lighting options. The middle shot is far and away the most pleasing though my camera has been set at a constant setting for the first option. I am beginning to realize why I am so often disappointed with my photos. I am starting to fear I have found my passion. Bring me some gorgeous children. I should have the best Christmas letter ever!

exhilaration" when the red and tan elves have stocked their shelves up at my neighborhood Target. Target is practically the only store where I feel you can purchase some decent quality merchandise without breaking the bank. Every year the Archer Farms label has a few new varieties they introduce at the holidays.

Two pieces of writing that are very dear to me were written by my daughter and my sister when each of them was approximately the same age. Mandy placed her order for a "Chines" lunch. The only thing I ever thought might be Chines about it was perhaps the Miraclew Whip.
This was a letter from my baby sister. I had been married for a year, must have been living in Florida where Den was training in the OV-10. Melissa's mink was one of those stoles where each mink was biting the tail of the one in front of it and was given to her by a friend of our aunt.

Today we met at this house which is Spanish colonial in design and decor. I could be a little envious of the kitchen island and the gourmet gas range.

Tonight I went to Linda's to learn some computer things. We signed me up for the messaging thing on g-mail and I have done a number on my blog access. Trying to straighten it all out. This is the picture I used to create a collage birthday card for my sister. She is a newborn here and I am 6 years old. Our dad is 34. He was a great dad!
My gratitude to all who have served and are presently serving our country to preserve our freedom. I give thanks for my personal favorite in-house veteran. This is him with one of his favorite flying machines, the T-38 shortly before I hooked up with him for 18 years of being a D/W.
