Everyone worked hard on their own costumes this year, so I didn't do much. Marnie just needed a little hair and makeup.

A Tribute to Cecil

Cecil has left us and gone to doggy heaven. We hope he is happy there chasing bunnies and squirrels or just taking naps in the grass. He was a great dog! 2000-2009

Jackson's New Cast

Jackson chose a great Seahawks green for his latest cast. It covers two pins designed to help the growth plate repair itself in the right direction. We're trying to figure out a Halloween costume that would take advantage of the injury.

Fall Spiders

It evoked screams of horror. Children went running and calling. I came with the camera and this is the picture we took. We should have added something to the picture for purposes of scale. Perhaps a quarter would have helped. Nevertheless, it was enormous, carrying around its babies on its back. Yikes!

Senior Pics

Calvin had to turn in his Senior Portrait this week, so we ran outside and took some digital pics out in the yard. He donned his flannel jacket and jumped on the log pile.

What to name them?

This is temporarily "Chimichanga," but I'm going with a name from kitties past,
"Smidgen McSmudge."

New Kitties

More Kitty Pics

Marnie had a friend over this weekend and they played with the kitties in a big way. Oh, they are so cute! No! Scratchy!

The Ballerina in the Family

With a name like Kluztma, I couldn't really pretend that I would sometime in the future become a ballerina. But Marnie has no such stigma and so we proceeded to enroll her in ballet classes on the Island. Her instructor is very beautiful and speaks in pretty tones to all of the mini dancers.
