Have a great weekend!

Another week ...

Wow, did this week just fly by or what?

Take a few moments and reflect back.

Enjoy each moment you have with your loved ones and tell them how special they are to you.

Take a break

The week's over half done and it's time to lay back and take a break. Have a good laugh and just relax.

Neidon and Kaireia show you how to do it.

Rainy days in Texas

We've finally had some rainy days in San Antonio.

Our water rationing is pushed off for awhile. Hooray!

But even though it's overcast outside, it's sunny inside when I see my grandkids.

Handsome guy

Now here's a handsome guy to get your day going.

Doesn't he have a sweet face?

Neidon is now 6 months old.

You all have a great weekend!

Time to wrap up the paperwork

It's the end of another work week.

Time to knuckle down and get your work done so you can go home and rest up for another week.

So get in there and let's get this over with!

It's cold - Brrrrr


It's cold. We thought spring was here.

Bundle up good before you go out today and drive careful.

Singing Sis

My singing granddaughter.

Rachel says Kaireia sings all of the time!

Neidon doesn't seem to mind.

Monday, March 20, 2006

It's Monday!

It's Monday - Hooray!!

Okay, it's not that exciting. But we do have a new week to enjoy.

We had 1 1/2" of rain last night - our first real rain in months. Our grass looks wonderful already.

Have a great week.

Guest house inside shots

Some interior shots of the guest house I showed you this past Thursday.

The top left photo is one of the bathrooms, the top right photo shows the wood ceiling and in the bottom photo you can see the kitchen.

Remember to click on photos to see larger.

And you thought I sat around all day at home watching tv and eating bon-bons!

What .... no milkshake?

Okay, everyone didn't get a milkshake after the circus!

But everybody did have a great time.

But next year .....

Shriner Circus


The kids went to a Shriner circus and stopped afterwards for a little refreshment.

Kaireia seems to be concentrating pretty hard on her shake.

I'm sure she'd share with us if we were there!


I'm thinking about a multi-screen set up.

Do you think this is overkill?

Check it out here.

Friday night

Hooray - it's Friday!

Time to hang out with close friends and family and just relax.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Don't worry, Be happy

I hope your week is going well.

Neidon says to slow down.

Think happy thoughts.

Guest House

Here is a photo of a guest house I designed last year for a client. I did the main house a few years ago. Interesting how things go in cycles - I have two more guest homes on the "boards" right now.

Thought you would enjoy looking at it until I get more grandkids photos up.

Post-it Elvis

Wow - way too much time on their hands.

This company let their employees use their post-its and make an Elvis.

More photos here.

How they did it here.

Yummy carrots

Carrots - yummy!

Neidon has been eating cereal for awhile and now has started eating carrots.

It appears he is wearing more than he's eaten.

Cult Poodles

I love kids' questions - Why is the sky blue? What holds up the sun?

Well, Kaireia is asking me hard questions as well.

She was playing with her poodle the other day and asked me this question ...

"Grandpa, do you think that other dogs look at poodles and wonder if they are part of some cult?"

Hmm ... an extremely thoughtful question.

Grandchildren are great

Well, Cindy's home and here is what she is missing!

My Grandpa Adams

It's always intersting to find out new things about your grandparents. My Grandpa Adams died when I was 5 years old and I barely remember anything about him. Anyway, my folks were clearing out some stuff and I inherited some old papers in which this card was found.

Whew - at least he was a Republican. I was two years old in 1956 and, as he was born in June of 1896, he was just shy of 60 years old. I always pictured him as a farmer. It's fascinating to see the other faces of your ancestors.

I said I never knew him, but as you get older you find out you become more like your folks (scary, huh?). Anyway, I know my own father, so I may know more of him than I ever thought.

Blue hat

It looks like a gang member to me. You can tell by the way he wears his hat.

He just turned 6 months old this week.

I should have 6 month photos soon.

Tuesday, March 07, 2006


Grandma Adams is feeding Neidon carrots. You can tell he really "loves" them.

He looks like he's ready to run away from there!

Henry Morris (1918-2006)

Henry Morris died Saturday. Cindy and I had the privilege of seeing him in person in Corpus Christi several years ago with our home school group.

He founded the Institute for Creation Research in 1970. He showed it is possible to believe in creation based on scholarly research and that evolution requires more faith than creation.

His book "The Genesis Flood" is a real masterpiece.

He was also a Texan, born in Dallas and a graduate of Rice University.

A true Texas gentleman. Rest in peace.

Pizza time

Kaireia is just like her daddy - a pizza lover.

No, pizza is not one of the basic food groups!

Cindy is in Missouri this week with the kids and left me in charge - scary, huh?

Hmm, how about ordering a pizza ...

Bath night

It's Saturday night - bath night down here in Texas.

Time to get ready for church after a long hard work week.

Hope you all had a great week.

See you at CHURCH!

We found this photo from 1988. Reed is on the left, Ashli is on the bench on the left (bow in hair) with Rachel on the bench to her right in the blue. Thought you'd enjoy the comparison with Ashli's recent photo. (Remember - click photo to see larger)


On the way home, Rachel and Darin stopped in the Waco area to visit with Ashli. This is Ashli with her son on her left and she's holding Neidon.

Ashli was Rachel's best friend growing up. They lived next door to each other and the girls spent hours playing though the chain link fence with each other.

As both Ashli's parents and we home-schooled, the girls had lots in common.

Ashli looks great and Rachel had a wonderful visit.

Knock Knock

Knock-knock - who's there?

This joke will finally come into play for real.

An Israeli company has developed a lock that will open your front door based on a series of knocks in a pattern you predetermine.

Check it out. Click here.

(PS Just read the article, the actual company's web site is in Hebrew.)
