Dos amigos

Another photo from the 'red hat' series. For some reason, Neidon avoids this set. He'd look great in a red hat!

Kaireia looks squashed in this photo - here, I'll hold her for you!

Oregon dreamin ...

A cold day in San Antonio this morning, but almost 80 degrees was yesterday's high. Here are some photos back from our Oregon trip last May. God makes some beautiful country, doesn't he! And Kaireia is beautiful too.

To the rescue

My San Antonio Spurs are going to need a little help before this road trip is over - they look tired already. Fortunately they have a great bench ready to come out swinging!

Hurry up

Hurry up with breakfast, the bus for school is coming soon!

"You'll miss the bus" - I think I've heard those words 7,026 times in my youth.

Kaireia loves to help feed her sister.

Know what I think of the debates?

Do you recall the first time you feed your child cereal? My kids all had this same look.

Kardia - you will like cereal - trust your grandpa!

My sweet girl

I don't care how messy this face is, I'd still kiss it in a heart-beat!

Kardia is my sweetheart!

39 again

Happy Birthday! To Janice and not the cat, that is!

Three musketeers

Here's the Kleeman gang getting close!

Have a great day and stay warm - I can't take much more of this global warming - I'm freezing to death!

Get back on the bull

It's Tuesday - I hope you've gotten back in the work routine. As they say, If you fall off, you have to get back on and keep going. Even Reed knows that is accurate.

PS This IS a real bull.

Back to work

Pick up those tools and get back at it - it's Monday!

Unless you are marching today - then stay warm and dry - it's a cold wet Texas day in south texas.

Interpretive dance

Interpretive dance is just fine for church and other religious stuff, but in a wedding?

To each his own.

I will say the triple spin and flip over the shoulder move was pretty cool.

All Smiles

Kaireia is looking older and prettier every day. She is a great big sister!

Have a great weekend.

Friday, January 18, 2008

O Happy Day

Kardia looks pretty comfortable in Kaireia's arms and Kaireia looks pretty happy with her little sister in her arms as well.

It's Friday morning - have a great day!! I'm going to bed.

Tough guy

Rachel took this about two weeks ago. Our tough guy in his leather jacket. I'd gladly wrestle him!

Big girl

Kardia is looking bigger and older all the time.

She thinks she is big stuff!

When I was her age, Pluto was a planet!

Hi pal ...

I was going to say something silly, but I like this picture so much I couldn't - just enjoy a 'behind the scenes' moment.

Kaireia and Audrey

Audrey finally had to ask Kaireia to sit by her as Reed was hogging so many of the wedding photos.
It seemed to work out pretty well - they look pretty happy about the whole idea.

Sunday, January 13, 2008

Get back in line

Reed wanted his picture taken all the time at the wedding. It was so embarrassing. We had to tell him to 'go back with the group' - it's going to be okay.

It was the 'Reed Show'. But we still love him!

Saturday, January 12, 2008

Wedding photos!

Reed and Audrey finally got their wedding photos and got us a copy on DVD. I'll be sharing a few over the next few days, but why be ordinary? I'm going to share those special shots that almost got away!

This is Neidon showing Audrey how to walk down the aisle. She did finally get it.

Where did this week go?

I like deep thoughts for deep thinkers!

Here's a deep thought for your Friday ... "I wish I had a dollar for every time I spent a dollar, because then, yahoo!, I'd have all my money back." - Jack Handy

Makes you think, huh?

This little girl needs her grandpa to sit down and draw with her. We could make some fine art together.

Have a wonderful Thursday - it's overcast in south Texas, but supposedly we're to hit 70 or so today.

Kardia in red

That Kardia looks good in anything - just like her brother and sister. I think this is a cute outfit for a cuter girl.

Tuesday, January 08, 2008

Hi grandma

Cindy talked to Neidon and Kardia on the telephone yesterday. Kaireia was too busy.

Kardia has my jaw line in this photo. Darin says she does have a neck under there!

Monday, January 07, 2008

Monday already?

Those fast weekends leave us in a daze. This is the first full week after the long holidays which makes it even harder to get back into the routine.

Kardia even looks a tad shocked.

Happy New Year!!!

Lots of kids

The nieces/nephews playing together this past December. Jaidyn seems to enjoy being the center of attention!

Friday, January 04, 2008

Yawn ...

These past few days back to work have been pretty hard. Too many days off have left me lazy.

I'm ready for a nap!

Thursday, January 03, 2008


Okay - I made a mistake. Paragraph 4 of the New Year's letter should say 'Rachel and Darin'!!

I guess too many years saying 'Rachel and Reed'.

The Princess Bed

Yes, there is a girl in that bed you see. Princess Kairiea looks to be all smiles!

A cold night even in south Texas last night - low 20's and the bird bath is frozen. The birds are having a skating party.

Columbus gals ...

As I was walking down the street
Down the street, down the street,
A pretty gal(s) I chance to meet
Under the silvery moon.

Columbus gals, won't you come out tonight?
Come out tonight, Come out tonight?
Columbus gals, won't you come out tonight,
And dance by the light of the moon.

Happy New Year!

Wow - what a great year was 2007!

A new grandbaby and a new daughter(in-law)!! What exciting things does God have in store for us in 2008? I can hardly wait to find out.

Here is Kardia's 4 month photo from a week or so ago.
