"The Birth of Christ"

Gracie was in the "Birth of Christ" Ballet for the second year in a row, she loved it! Her smile could not have been any bigger when I saw her after the performance, that was the first night of our big snow!

Halloween "Three Mice"

What a fun Halloween we had this year. I convinced all three kids to be mice so they could dress nice and warm, of course it was a warm Halloween for the first time ever, oh well! We had a great time, and got way too much candy!

I have really started to enjoy gardening since we have been in this new house. With three kids I don't always get the time I need to keep my yard looking the way I would like it to, but I try. Anyway, my favorite flower is a dalia (sp). The bloom from Summer to Fall and bloom over and over and over. Here are some pics of my favorite dalia that are in my yard right now.

Poor Rubie

Rubie is no longer with us and now has a new home. About two years ago she swallowed a bone and ended up costing us close to $1500 to save her life. We were going to put her to sleep because the doggie hospital wanted around 3 grand to save her. When we went to our vet to put her to sleep they said they would do the surgery for about half. So we saved her!

Now almost three year later she did the same thing, except it was a pine cone. We decided we were not going to pay again for her surgery. Eric signed her over to the Vet who I guess can find her a new owner that will pay the bill. We are very sad but hope she has a great new home!

Janie and Mrigona Lau

Our very best freinds in the whole world came over last night. Here are some pics of Janie and her best friend Marigona.

Eric, Jill & Janie...Trip to San Fran

Eric finally took me on a work trip. He had training in San Fran so he took Janie and I along for the trip. We spent a few days with my girlfriend Lilli and her family in the Palo Alto area and then we spent a few days in San Fransisco.

Janie one year pictures

Finally.........only 3 month late I took Janie in for her one year pictures. She kicked butt as usual. Even with no nap she wins Miss Congeniality! They once again asked me to sign a model release form so they can put her pictures up in their store. She was up on the store wall in a four print collage when we were in there. What a little model!
