April Snow

You've probably all heard the saying, "April showers bring May flowers..."  Well here, in Colorado,  
that saying goes a little different... "April snow brings May glow (also known as flowers, sunshine, etcetra)..
We had a beautiful snow storm that left the ground sparkling with fresh moisture!  What a great day to take some photos spontaneously! 



Dashing through the snow .... (We only needed a one horse open sleigh...)  


Rain boots in snow....  That's how we roll. 

Sweet sisters...

Photo Shoot

So y'all, I know it's been forever and all, but this afternoon, we had some fun with the camera lens and took photos with the sisters, particularly Robin, because she's pretty egotistical.  Shhh... Don't tell her I said that.  :-P   We'll call them senior portraits!

But, we thought we'd share her double chins, stiff smiles, and general lack of ability to pose for a camera naturally... :D Note that the photographer was wonderful! :)  Thanks Sister! :)


Self defaming comments were made by yours truly! :)  

Well, this was going to be a good photo, but a little monster popped in at the moment... 

Double Chin moment!   :D 

And in spite of the shyness of the subject, y'all, the photographer was really great, and she delivered on some great fun photos!

Sisters are the best! 

Of course, we couldn't sign off without sharing some pictures of the other special people/furry friends in 
our lives!

Picture below: Robin and Anna cuddle with the cutest cat in the world, Essie! :) 

All dressed up for football season...  Maia is very obliging! :) (Really, we don't watch any football)

"Adios," says Anna! :)  Till next time!

March 6th, 2012 - My day!

Hello Every one!

Today's been a good day. I had a lot to do on my list, so I got started early...

First on queue - a 3 1/2 mile run with Robin at 6:00 a.m.

Nice hair, eh?

I was glad to get back and start up on the day... So much to do, yet so little time to do it all... I came back from the run to this:

Puppy would not stand still!

Check out that cuteness factor! On a scale from 1 to 10 = definitely 10 all the way!

She finally stopped moving!!!! Yay!!! Score!!!!!!!

Next, I had to get lunches ready for some hungry boys who were headed out for a loooong car trip... Mommy took Daddy, our brother, and Robin to the airport (headed to the same destination as the "hungry boys...") ;) When they left, I got some laundry done:

And then off to history class! (It was great, and we talked about some subjects that I've always been really interested in :))

We got home, I did some cleaning and chores, then I left for another 3 1/2 mile run - This time, with Maia!
She was so excited! :) (Cute puppy)

It was soooooo gorgeous and peaceful...

We got home, and I tried to get her to pose for a picture, but it was pretty much IMPOSSIBLE. Seriously, I don't think this puppy ever sits still... ever.

Oh well! Still, 3.5 miles + 3.5 miles = 7 miles, done and done!

I got back, made leftovers and roasted root veggies for dinner, and finished with an apple... YUM!

Well, bye! And, if you're wondering why we still have our Christmas lights up, don't ask! I hope ya'll had as good a day as I did!

A Musical Review

Hello Everyone,

It's been a while, I admit. But, that doesn't mean that nothing has been happening. A lot has happened since I last posted. The most recent (big) thing was probably our Musical Review on February 8th (I know, a REALLY looong time since I last posted). We put it on to raise money for an orphanage in Zambia, and it went fairly well, save for some sound problems... Here are pictures:


Oh! It's a jolly holiday...

Smile, darlin', smile!

Consider Yourself!!

Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I'll love ya tomorrow!

And I have you two too!

He's handsome! He's tall! ...That is, from side to side...


Two fabulously relieved directors - relieved to be done with all the torture (just kidding... no, really! I am kidding!)

The whole group - cast and crew

Yay!!! I finally got to use a workable camera, and the Sisters 4 went outside with the puppy and did a photo shoot! That's the first time in a loooong time... :) Here are some of the highlights:

Ha ha... we have WAY too much fun...

Run, puppy, run! or, rather: Run, owner, run!

There are so many reasons to laugh...

Puppy love... ;)

...Both soooo cute...

Licking Fest!!!!


Scottish dancing...

...or martial arts?

Fun Friends


A brief ode to braids...

Piggyback rides 4 free...

There's somethin' to be said for sisters!

And, The END! That was our photo shoot, and we had a blast doing it too. Some of the pictures were blurry, of course, but... oh well!
