Good afternoon

Sorry I'm late today - yes, I do have to work sometimes!

The kids had this taken over the Holidays, so enjoy.

You might notice, Neidon was not too thrilled with the photo session. Kaireia, of course, is a ham - "What, you're taking a photo without me?!"

A great day

We have sunshine and a beautiful day out today. Rain is supposed to come in later on for a few days - so enjoy the sun while it lasts.

David has nothing on Karieia ...

It's Monday!

I can't believe the weekend is already over! I'm probably not the only one that isn't very happy about it.

Stay warm, dry and safe this week.

Indian Summer

Okay, I know Indian summer comes in the fall after a cold snap and is before winter begins, but it was still a beautiful day in San Antonio yesterday - about 70 degrees.

It was just warm enough to make you ready for springtime. It makes me want to pull out my shorts and t-shirt and some crocs.

Running girl

Isaiah 40:31

... but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

Have a great weekend!

Riding on

Well, did you ride out the week okay? They sure fly by quick, don't they!

Have a wonderful Friday.

Full hands

I thought I had my hands full until I saw this photo.

Stay warm and safe this new day.

Week is half over

The week's half over and I'm wiped out already. Time for a second wind - maybe after a quick power nap!

Neidon has the right idea.

As they say in San Antonio "Carpe Manana" (Seize tomorrow).

What to wear?

I had to get up early and you know how you're so sleepy, you really don't know what to wear and you really don't care?

You could be happy just throwing on some ole' bag!

Evidently this feeling starts when you're young. Maybe we're born with it?

Wake up sleepy head

It's Monday - time to get into another week!
I pray your weekend was great.

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. Psalm 5:3 (KJV)

On the go

Even Superman has to slow down and eat - but could he slow down enough to get his picture taken?

At this age, you work off what you eat before it even gets to your stomach!

Have a great Sunday - remember, the church was God's idea.

It's Saturday

A cold and rainy Saturday in Texas. Another good day to just stay inside by the fire. A good day to read a book to your child or grandchild too!

Enjoy the weekend and stay warm, dry and safe.

San Marcos

Well, Before I move on to another topic, I thought you'd enjoy seeing how San Marcos held up to the snow as well. As San Antonio hunkered down and got serious about this ice and snow, San Marcos did what they do best - they Partied! For you that live up north, the coats they are wearing only come out once or twice a year - that's why we live in the south!! Tomorrow it'll be in the 60's again.

Have a great Friday.

Cabin Fever

We finally had to get out yesterday - we were tired of being locked up!

Our power went out last night for 90 minutes but some friends out in the Hill Country lost their power from Tuesday evening to at least Wednesday noon.

Neidon says have a warm and safe day!

Wednesday, January 17, 2007


It's still cold in S.A. It got to freezing (32 degrees) yesterday but not over - that's pretty rare for us. It's sprinkling outside now and still under freezing. Businesses and schools and the city closed for 2 days now (3 counting MLK day).

We give up - "UNCLE!"

Cold has come

Well, it is cold in San Antonio. Parts of town are reporting snow as I write this (2 pm) - brrr!

You can see we're getting freezing rain and sleet - my cactus are wondering what's going on!

Our thermometer hasn't gone over 30 degrees today.

I'm ready for summer!

Door still open

I thought yesterday, when I said you left the door open, you'd close it. I guess some people just don't take a hint! It's freezing in - under 30 degrees and wet. CIA's office just called and closed for the day. Harder for me to shut my office when I work at home, huh?

It's a good day to stay in bed and snuggle with some friends like Kaireia here - this is from a year ago today. It looks pretty crowded in there.

Good 'cold' morning to you

Neidon is asking "where did it go?" Maybe he's asking about our warm weather as it is surely gone.

It was down below freezing last night and we had rain, there's a chance of snow today and possibly even tomorrow.

In south Texas, that just ain't right!

Sunday, January 14, 2007

Baby it's cold outside!

BRRR ....

Did one of you up north leave the door open? It's SUPPOSED to be cold there, but NOT down here in Texas!

You all stay safe and warm today. Love you!

April 30, 2006

Here are some happy guys. I hope to get a hold of them in another month or so.

Have a blessed weekend.

Deja Vu

I have a feeling when Reed gets married in May, we'll take a photo of these two siblings and their shapes could be extremely similar to those in this photo. (Sorry Rach - facts are facts)

Another oldie

Kaireia - "Uncle Reed, can't be play on the Nintendo or play Bridge or Euchre?"

Reed - "Let me finish coloring this picture first and then maybe we can play Candyland, it's one of my favorites."

Ohio just in time

A cult? A fall festival gone bad? In Missouri too long? A cover-up for a bad hair day?

You be the judge.

Reed and Kaireia

This was several years ago. Until Rachel feels better and sends photos - I'll be posting oldies, but goodies.

FYI - her due date is 8/23/07 - no news yet of boy or girl.

It's the most important meal of the day - at least that's what experts say. You gotta have it to get off to a great start and it also helps to maintain your weight.

In fact, it helps even more if you can sit and eat it like this.

Ahh .. would somebody come help me up please. Hello ... anybody there ... I'm stuck and I can't get up ...

My Princess

This was taken at Kaireia's birthday last year. The cake says "Princess Kaireia".

So? Tell me something I didn't know!

Saturday, January 06, 2007

Young driver

Oh, Oh ...Kaireia has already learned that a woman doesn't have to sit in the driver's seat to be in control of the vehicle's direction.

As I tell Cindy, I don't drive, I only steer.

Feeling house bound?

Today in San Antonio, it is supposed to hit the high 70's - we can get outside to enjoy the warm weather again. Tomorrow back in the 50's and lower for a few days again. So if you are feeling housebound, this is your day to get out!

Happy kids

Good morning - my rain gauge is full - it rained all night, what a great sound.

The sun is now spilling through my office window and it should shape up to be a pretty day.

"This is the day the Lord has made;

we will rejoice and be glad in it." PSALMS 118:24

My babies

Good morning.
I may be showing older photos for awhile. Rachel is extremely sick from being pregnant and she may have a few months of that.
Maybe Neidon can learn to pretend throwing-up like Kaireia did when Rachel was pregnant with him. Kids are the best.

Whoever said work was a real bear, didn't have to tangle with this beast!

I'm talking about the one with the pink boots, not the white one.

I hope you are sticking to your New Year's resolution so far.

Look forward, look back

It's going to be another great year. But I wanted to look back exactly a year from today to a photo from the vault. I found it in the back corner by the Victrola and dusted it off for your enjoyment.
