Check out the photo page…these are just so the page has something- need new photos from people.
Ok-so I was a little grumpy (just looked at a picture of Delaney and how can you stay grumpy after that smile!) and I will still be ridden with guilt if I don’t post a birthday but it would be nice if others had as much fun as I..please share and post!

Well Erin suggested I put birthdays on the sidebar so-here they are. Please let me know if I made any mistakes (so many dates and people it is easy to confuse) also if you like. Any ideas- let me know, if it is in my capacity of learning- I’ll try and get it up! Thanks Erin for the idea- I know I can use all the help I can in remembering!

We just wanted to let everyone know that there will be a new DiSanto in this world around the first of the year! We were totally caught by surprise. So we will have a Christmas baby and a New Year’s baby! Kam is so happy, he just hopes the baby won’t get into his Yu-Gi-Oh collection. It was impossible to get everyone by phone and our apologies but I have to work tonight at Wayne Hills.

hot (26k image)

When those bones get to aching- Linda and I will get to soaking in this hot tub (minus the fan screen).There is a company here in KC that makes them on-site. Ours is called Montego Bay (will take real pictures when we get it). It takes about 4 weeks before we get it- we are placing it out front on the concrete (about 2 steps from the door which will be nice in winter) plus the house will block the North wind. Anyone up for a spa party?

As you can see I designed a new header for the page- pictures will now be added to the photo page. I am looking for a name for the page…right now I just called it Simple Things but can change it to what ever. Any ideas?
Also there is room down the sidebar- any ideas there?
Let’s personalize this baby!

wall (60k image)
Well the yellow wall went away- after we painted the otherside “spitfire” it just didn’t go well so we painted this one spitfire too! The picture washes the color out some- it has a darker cream color with a suede texture to it.

blind (59k image)

They are finally here! The new blinds got installed this morning- they are Hunter Douglas blinds that come up from the bottom or drop from the top. What a difference they make. Good-bye quilts. It took Linda and I working everyday for a week to redo all the woodwork, insulate behind the boards, paint the walls but the finally result was worth it- picture does not do it justice.

MVC-850F (37k image)
We hired a backhoe to take out two tree trunks and 8 poles from the old deck. The man who built the deck did not build it to code but laid the posts with 4 foot of concrete (see picture above). He even poured the concrete through the phone wire which we had to sledge hammer out. Sunday we spent sanding the window frames (new blinds get installed next Saturday). Oh my aching body!

Kay C. received bad news yesterday that Buffett’s daddy died (Skeeter).
When the soul of a person meets the love of a pet, its changed forever…
Please keep the Carroll family and Jerry (Skeeter’s owner) in your prayers.

Someone sent this to me at school today- I was also having a similar conversation with one of my sisters lately so I took it as a “GOD wink” to share (not the part about being harsh with our families (though that should give us pause) but that family is more important then work- I know they would replace me in a blink of an eye and don’t think twice about the extra I do (regardless of cost to my personal life) so I saw it’s time to start prioritizing our lives– click more for the poem on

This weekend we finished off some of our beds- we unloaded a truck load of gravel. Here is the {{popup MVC-813F.JPG MVC-813F 467×373}} flower bed where the deck steps use to be.A close up of the {{popup MVC-814F.JPG MVC-814F 467×373}} rock we used to cover the beds. Our {{popup MVC-815F.JPG MVC-815F 467×373}} strawberry patch. We have 3-4 different types under the plum tree. Here is the {{popup MVC-819F.JPG MVC-819F 467×373}} flower bed near the patio- we had spirias but Linda put in flowers to match the flower bed in the {{popup MVC-818F.JPG MVC-818F 467×373}} half circle. We removed the red brick in front of the concrete patio and laid {{popup MVC-817F.JPG MVC-817F 467×373}} sod– looks much nicer. Now we can bring out the 10×10 canopy. We tore out the deck (I think we are putting a new one in) but planted some burning bushes to make a {{popup MVC-822F.JPG MVC-822F 467×373}} hedge. Since you can see this from the street- a fence did not look so hot (here is a {{popup MVC-109F.JPG MVC-109F 467×373}} before picture- big difference. I started my {{popup MVC-823F.JPG MVC-823F 467×373}} herb garden (got in the plants) but the hardscape needs to be laid properly. It will look better. There is rhubarb in the back and a walk way that needs to be set. It will have a border on each side but I ran out of brick (need 36 more). We have several types of sage, basil, parsley, fennel, lavender, oregano, thyme, rosemary- still need oregano and chives. This is where that lovely {{popup MVC-111F.JPG MVC-111F 467×373}} shed use to live that we finally had torn down. And last- we have a new friend to brighten up our bench…{{popup MVC-821F.JPG MVC-821F 467×373}} Mr. Frog!
