Tabletop again

My grandkids just like to climb. Not sure why they are on the coffee table but they don't seemed to concerned about it.

Neidon does seem to want his hand back though.

Saturday, July 29, 2006

It's Saturday!

It's the weekend - get your toys out and play and relax and just enjoy the time off from the hectic week.

Here's Neidon having a fun time. I'd get down on the floor with him and play for awhile.

For being a Missouri gal, Kaireia sure has the San Antonio Fiesta look down pat.

Umbrella girl

Here's my little sweetheart with her personalized umbrella. Eat your heart out - I know you want one too!

Put your shoes on

It's almost 8 am - get your shoes on and get out the door. Time to get going.

Have a great Wednesday - another week is flying by.

PS Happy Anniversary to my parents as well!

My guys

Here is a photo from my photo archives. It's probably a few months old already. Enjoy!

Sermon illustration

One of the hazards of a PK (preachers kid) is being used as a sermon illustration. Here Neidon is actually being used as a live illustration of some sort.

Get used to it like you do the hugs from Kaireia kid!

3 years ago

This photo was taken three years ago this weekend. Rachel was in town for her baby shower. Reed is looking his great self.

How about this glass wall system off of a family room in Fossil Ridge - here in the Hill Country. The view towards the rear is spectacular and this glass leaves it all visible.

Here's a house (see below) I designed this year in Oakwell Farms - do you like the copper clad garage doors? It's the only flat roof house ever approved in that subdivision.

Where's Darin?

I always get asked - "Why isn't Darin in the photos?"

Well someone has to take the family shots - duh!

Here is one of Darin alone - yes he is still around. He's so low key, we forget he's there sometimes.

(And right now he is losing big time to me in an on line chess match. But please don't mention it to him, he's sensitive about it!)

The gang

If this doesn't make you smile, I don't know what would!
Of course, I may be a little prejudiced!!

My little poser

That Kairiea knows how to pose.

This is a photo Rachel took of her in Indiana, in Vincennes.

Tuesday, July 18, 2006


You probably thought Rachel took all the photos of her kids that I put on this blog. Think again!

I now have proof that she has help.

Kaireia - turn the camera around first!

Back to work once more

Yes, it's Monday already - another fast weekend.

Neidon is sure busy. Do you remember when you could sit like this AND still get up again?

Reed - do you have this same outfit?

Flower girl

Kaireia has a jar with flowers in it. Children get joy and contentment over the simplest of things. What a great reminder for us.

Philippians 4:12-13 "I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength."

Happy Friday

I'm not sure what this pose indicates, if anything. Maybe just happy.

This is Kaireia with her great grandma Miller in the background when they were up in Indiana.

10 months old

Neidon is now 10 months old. He's growing up without his Grandpa Adams to teach him the finer points of life.

We're going up in the next month or two and we'll take care of that!

A little behind

I'm going to Dallas tomorrow and will return Wednesday so no photos for a day or two.

I'll be a little behind in my work so will have to play catch up.

Get off the couch

It's Monday - time to get off the couch and get going!

Off course, if you look this pretty in pink, I might make an exception.

Have a great week.

Sunday, July 09, 2006


Neidon is a climber and proud of it. You can see he just climbed up onto Kaireia's table. Of course, whenever there is a photo-op. Kaireia is there too!

Have a great Sunday.

Saturday, July 08, 2006

Happy guys

Neidon turned 10 months old this week and Kaireia is now 2 years 9 months.

Here they are sitting on their front porch.

Yes Neidon, another hug!

Friday, July 07, 2006

So who's the girl with those fancy braids?

Why it's Kaireia Kleeman.

Have a great Friday everybody.

George Rogers Clark Memorial

I love this shot. Rachel took it of the George Rogers Clark Memorial in Vincennes. I converted it into a wide angle shot as I have two 19" monitors side by side and rotate it through as my wall paper. It looks great in high-definition. Wish I was there!

Blue skies

It was blue skies in Indiana until they got to Lafayette and then rain, rain, rain.

Here is Kaireia enjoying the beautiful weather.

Answer to yesterday's chick photo - "my folks house in New Braunfels" when it was under construction. My folks and Janice guessed correctly with 45 minutes of each other. Sorry Janice - just minutes late!

Time flies

I love this picture. My favorite chicks.

This was taken almost exactly three years ago. I lot of changes in three years, huh?

Have a great week.

PS Any guesses where I took it?

A big thanks to our troops - past and present, for giving us our freedom.

July 4th

Have a great fourth of July holiday.

This is Kaireia in case you couldn't tell behind those sun glasses.

Monday, July 03, 2006


It's Monday - hope you made it through the traffic and got to work okay. I had to take a dozen steps to my office - pretty hard, huh?

How about this car that has two steering wheels - who's really in charge? My car has one steering wheel and I wonder the same thing.

As always - click the photo to see it larger.

Calf Feeding

Kairiea learned all kinds of new things in Indiana. Here are Cheryl and Charlie showing her how to feed a calf from a a bottle.

She doesn't look to sure about it!

Snore ...

Whew - a long week, huh?

Neidon looks pretty comfortable on his dad's shoulder. I think he had a hard week as well.

Get some rest and enjoy the weekend - a long one for many of you.

PS My grandkids are even beautiful when asleep!
