Happy Birthday Eldest

Happy Birthday Katie ! Twenty-eight years ago today we were filled with wonder as we saw you for the first time. You, our first peapiepunkinpus, have continued to fill us with awe and joy each day. Thank you God, for blessing us with Katie.

Hope your drive home today is good. Be safe. Be nice to each other :) We love you both.

Keeping Liv

This is one sweet baby. We've read, played, walked, picked Satsumas and even washed the car and she has been happy the entire time. I've just put her down for her afternoon nap. She fussed a little, as in to say c'mon Mimi you know you want to play some more, don't leave me in here, hey aren't you supposed to spoil me, there are still plants outside that we haven't talked about, but she was out in five minutes. One of my favorite moments occurred today as we were rocking in the guest room. Livi discovered that if she pulls on the slightly wobbly table beside the rocker the glass beaded dangly things on the lamp shade will swing wildly. She looked at me with wide eyes the first time she did it wanting confirmation that she had really just accomplished that all by herself. Then she did it about 100 times more just because she could. Fun games are everywhere when you are eight months old.

Thanks Jesse and Leaa for sharing. We think it’s really cool that she is happy to go with any of her grandparents. She is a very well adjusted, precious, beautiful, brilliant, good natured, I could go on, little baby girl.

look at all this hair!

drama at Camp David

Don't want to get "dooced" so I can't say much but here's a link to the latest in the childish behavior that currently rules our district. BTW I did work Friday but I was in the lab and unavailable for comment. Must have been a really slow news day. But the bad thing is this causes hurt feelings that get in the way of our job duties. This was a group of friends standing around talking for a few minutes, not political coercion.

Cara shot this video on her cell phone. The quality isn't great but Livi's laughter is priceless.

Playing her first concerto... after she finished solving her daily algebra problem

What a kid. Leaa sent me this adorable picture today. This must be another phase of Livi's tonal therapy. Thanks, Leaa.

Someone else is spending entirely too much time with photo booth. We entertained ourselves for hours on Katie and B'dawg's Mac. Send me some of your favs Katie and I'll share 'em with the world. Well at least with the seven people who visit this blog on occasion.

Livi Cuteness

buzzards

These large and somewhat ugly birds are daily visitors to our back yard. Happy to provide you fellas with a roost but we are wondering if you are waiting here for any specific reason?

btw - IE 7 was the evil one causing my technology angst yesterday. I downloaded Firefox last night and was able to see the missing toolbars in beta blogger.

Well I logged in this morning and could not insert photos or use picasa to upload photos on this blog. Durn. I suspect Internet Explorer 7 as the culprit but it did work correctly for a few days so maybe it's this beta blogger. I hate technology when it doesn't work right. I hate waking up stupid each day too because everything has changed overnight. I remember reading about starting a blog over a year ago and someone said e-blogger is fine to start with but you will probably want to use something else eventually. I guess I have arrived at eventually. I think I want a Mac too but since I have to fight Window battles all day at work - well it has been easier to stay with the same platform or so I reasoned but my Mac roots are calling me again. It's Katie and Barrett's fault. They have a new ibook. It's so pretty! I have a lab full of new Dell computers at work all displaying error messages and the fix ain't fixing 'em. Every update fills me with dread. Insert disgusted sigh here.

I'll post a new address here soon if I can't get this to straighten up and fly right.

I'm going for a walk. Then maybe do a little shopping. We're buying gifts for a three year old foster child, a little girl who likes princesses and shiny black leather shoes. Such fun! My sister, Cherie, is coming to visit tomorrow. She has received her new assignment and will be serving a Methodist Church in the Ft.Myers area. I hate that it will be so far away but glad she knows where she is heading. We actually know someone who attended the church,( one of Cara's swim coaches at UF) and he had good things to say about his church. That’s a good sign.

Hope your weekend is extra groovy and special. Peace.
