We just wanted to say hello. I don’t get on very often because I am extremely busy at work and usually don’t have access at night (deebird!). Everyone is doing great and the big “D” is now 13.God help me! She is growing more beautiful everyday.

Matty is still a ball of sunshine. She is full of love and is my buddy at night. She is doing a whole lot better in school and has brought her two bad grades up a level (actually one of them went up two levels).

Both are doing well in soccer. Matty won her Myrtle Beach tournament – she scored a goal in every game (in one game it was the only goal scored!!) Erin went with me to that tournament and got to witness the happy bug herself.

Darian’s team is 6-1-1 and in second place by one point. She is playing absolutely fantastic. Although she is not a goal scorer almost every one of the goals her team scores she is the assistant. I call her the playmaker!

Lastly – we had dinner last night with Ashley. She is doing well and her son is absolutely beautiful. She is getting married next October if she and Jimmy (her fiance who looks just like Christopher!) save enough money. She is an assistant nurse at Carolinas Medical Center. She looks real good, more like a Mom than a young adult. She seems happy. Jimmy has a lot of family around and they are close. Ashley was excited to see us and hopes she can stay in touch. She wants nothing to do with Mike but she says she is not angry anymore. She is coming to Darian’s BD party saturday.We all feel better because we have set things straight and now I don’t feel like I gave up on her. Hope for the best.

We love and miss you all.

Well last night was weigh in at weight watchers- another 5.8 for a total of 12.2 in two weeks. Too bad it won’t stay this high! Anyone want to share their successes? I know many are trying to get in shape- lets encourage each other.

Ever had one of those days! It’s Monday and already feels like a full week. I taught this evening, have a PTA presentation tomorrow, and Wednesday & Thursday is parent teacher conferences so I work late.This is just the night schedule- days are full too. Thank goodness I have Friday off!

I guess here is my plug to say- I know everyone is busy but I hope we hear from people- keep us updated on what’s going on in your lives, comment on what we say here, send in a quote or picture- anything- this is a place to share and talk and laugh and we miss hearing from people.

I’m now off the soap box- have a great day!


Well I am running out of current photos of family so I guess I’ll just have to come home and take some more….I’m planning to come home Christmas day (around 4) and stay until Sunday (29). Linda and I will do Christmas on Christmas Eve (still send gifts to Kansas City- I’m traveling light) and we will spend New Year’s together (Linda works Christmas Day).

I also couldn’t wait 6 months to see Delaney (I got extra film!)
It will be short and sweet but the important thing is sweet!

Don’t forget to send lots of love and kisses!

Well we have a new driver in the family- Nick turned 16 on November 30 (sorry I didn’t get this up yesterday-worked late) so better late then never- give Mr. Nick a big birthday wish.


Happy Birthday to Nick!!
The big 16 and driving!!!


Aunt Sushi had asked me when I was home for Kay’s shower if I was planning on adding some more recipes to our cookbook. I have lots I can give, but I thought I would ask you all to send me ones that you may have found lately that are good. I can type them all the same way I did the others and I’ll give them to everyone.

I guess a cook’s job is never finished… let’s keep on cookin!

Oh, here’s a quote I adapted that I like: “When life throws you a tomato, make tomato sauce!” I think it better suites our family than the lemon one.


I wanted to let you guys know that I was cruising through AC Moore (only the very coolest craft store around–my mom can vauge for this one), and what did my wondering ears hear? “I’m Just a Love Machine!” I thought of Buffet the whole time I was singing it! I haven’t heard that song in a long time!

Love you all…

October 27 is Clark’s birthday- let’s all send birthday wishes his way!


Please note we have some new quotes by way of Kay C, new pictures (always nice to see everyone, including the 4 legged type) and would love new pictures or quotes from everyone. I know everyone is busy but with the Holidays coming up lets make sure we don’t lose sight of what’s important and stay in touch. This is really important for folks far away (I feel you pain Erin- it’s hard to be away). This is also a great way to share ideas for Christmas as I know several people are looking for suggestions and just to find out how people are doing (Susie- how is school?)


Well I’ve talked to a few people who like the “theme” idea so I’m confused. Looking for a yes or no on theme idea- the songs I received I thought were good but missing lots of people (need kids and hubbies). How about a favorite Christmas song- is that better. Let me know- just go to comments and respond.
