I'm still here! I'm not ALL there!

Hi again,

I finally got a few pictures on my computer so I can post them!

Bear with me for awhile, I'm sure I'll come back to earth some day... maybe... I think... possibly... I don't know... we'll see... (That was for you Abby. LOL!)

I do know that we've been keeping busy. Daddy cut his thumb, I noticed that. It was pretty serious. We're really glad that it started to hurt yesterday because that means his feeling is being restored!

Our Papa had a heart attack two weeks ago... if the fire chief for L.A. County wasn't standing next to him he would be in heaven right now. We spent a lot of time, (between all of us), at the hospital with him. Fortunately he's home now as of yesterday afternoon! PTL!!!

We went to some friend's house for dinner one night and they served us a mystery meal... that was very entertaining!

We've been going skiing/snowboarding each Wednesday this month. The last trip of the year, Merrie wanted to remember so she dislocated her shoulder. (Actually she was attempting a jump, which she had done successfully earlier, she wants everyone to know that!). ;-)

We had pizza night last night.

And I miss my guy like crazy... :-(

We had company today from San Diego. A family with 11 kids... we played basketball, frisbee, football, jumped on the trampoline and sang a little, then we taught them the Virginia Reel. It was such a beautiful day outside today! The weather was perfect for flip flops, which makes it perfect! ;-)

Now we're sitting around in Dad and Mom's room just talking. It's been awhile since we did this with just the family...

I read a verse this morning that really encouraged me. I love verses that have such practical applications for me.

"Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares." Hebrews 13:2
