Green lips

It's a new fashion statement - your lips should match the trim on your clothes.

I'm guessing a green Popsicle was the culprit.

Chocolate face

What bag? Oh, this one in my hands? I just found it laying around. And the chocolate on my lips - I'm not sure how that go there.

I'm innocent I tell you. A victim of circumstances.

(You need to click on the photo and look at it larger - I love the smile on Kardia's lips.)

Kaireia is taking art classes. She is a great artist and has a real eye for forms and colors. And she is real pretty too!

Have a great Sunday!

Spiderman ... Spiderman ...

Neidon had a surprise visit by Spiderman at his birthday party several weeks ago. Spiderman looks pretty tough here to me! Even Darin looks scared - well, sort of.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Smile, it''s Friday!

Here is my pretty, smiling grand-daughter.

Be careful on that couch! Were your kids climbers too?

Big three year old!

You're right Neidon - I had three days of classes. That's how old you are too!

I'm back from three L-O-N-G days of classes with homework each night until 10 or 11 pm. I'm now bonified.

The classes were in an office in Ranger Stadium and they also had a suite facing the ball field across the hallway. A game was going each night which we watched on breaks. The Texas air smelled pretty nice too.

Move away from the screen

This afternoon I'm leaving to Arlington, Texas for classes and won't return until the end of the week.

It's the same picture you'll be looking at for several days until I return - so sit down, relax and stop hitting the keys on your keyboard.

Get over it - grow up!!

Getting fixed up

Good morning - we woke up to the low 50's here in Cookeville. The day times are getting in the low 80's. A nice time of year as even a few trees are beginning to change color and look great.

Speaking of looking great, here's my pretty grand-daughter!

Clean your plate

Rachel is teaching her kids to clean their plate just like I was taught. I was told, 'Remember all the starving children in India, so don't leave food behind and be wasteful.'

Maybe you can take this a little far?

Have a great Friday and weekend.

Crazy hat day!!

Yes, it's that time of the month - it's 'Crazy Hat' day. So get out your crazy hat and live it up.

Oh yea - a wild yell and a native bead necklace don't hurt either.

Mommy's helper

The best outfit to wear while grating cheese is a pink tutu. Kaireia is a good helper in many ways - and cute too!

Burgess Falls ... again?

These are pictures of the main, or lower falls - they don't really do it justice. It was beautiful.

(Back to grandbaby photos tomorrow!)

Saturday in the park

Here's our newest walker - nothing slows her down!!

Today we're trying out a new park - Tennessee has lots of great and beautiful parks.

We pray our friends in Texas are safe - we've been watching the reports and praying for your safety.

Here is one of my pretty dancers - my little princess Kaireia.

Millers and their kids

Cindy with her folks and her brothers from the reunion. I think I see some resemblance.

For my friends in Texas, we got some spare rooms - so be safe, get out of there and head on up for a few days. We pray you only get rain from this storm.

Put on a smile and get going!!

It's Saturday - have some fun!

You know sparklers are bright when you have to wear sunglasses to watch them!

Have a great weekend and even dig out your cape to wear if you want.

Guess who has started school!

Oh my, where have the years gone, I was just holding a little baby in my arms yesterday.

She looks pretty excited doesn't she!

Thursday, September 04, 2008


Now that Kardia is an older one year old, forget the toys and bring out the nail polish, necklaces and finger rings.

I love her sweet smile!

Another fine morning

Another birthday photo of our big one year old.

If I sat like that, someone would have to help me get up!

More ... Fall Creek Falls Park

Enjoy these photos - it was a fun visit and only about an hour away.

Fall Creek Falls State Park

We went to a state park today and had a nice time. More pictures later - love you all.


I'm not sure why our parents ever bought us toys We had as much fun pretending with stuff that was already around the house.

Laundry baskets made great jails, submarines, cages and just good ole' hiding places.
