We're still here!

Ok friends and family, I have heard received your calls, texts, emails, and facebook queries and the answer is , "Yes, I do intend to continue the blog." The problem is, nothing exciting has been happening except the same old routine. You know... work, laundry, cooking, cleaning, reading, watching movies, dance class, karate class, etc......

The children are fine. Here they are at our volunteer project with Angel Food. They like breaking down the boxes and hauling them out to the recycle thingie.

I have given a few hair cuts recently to the men of the family. I hate to tell them I learned my techniques on about a thousand dogs. I suppose what they don't know won't hurt them.

Things on the animal front have been quite mundane. Of course, the summer's highlight was taking these little guys to the beach on my girl's weekend and not only having them pose for pictures, but also nearly burning down the hotel while heating towels for them , necessitating a

1 am trip to walmart to buy a heating pad, then encountering biker-guy on the way back in who told us about the almost fire that we didn't even know about. Then the little things died anyway.

This is "FreeBird", who was found flying free in Bartlett , now he only flies in here and likes to poop in people's hair.

So forgive me for not being the faithful poster I have always been. We are working hard to keep things in the road so that we can bring you more goodies like this one above. The next recital is in December....we have a girl in 4 numbers. I can't even bring myself to tell you how much the costumes cost. No matter - it is worth every dime.

So, as soon as I learn how to replicate the faces of the entire cast of "Cats!", I will get the blog rolling again. Just kidding, actually I will get you some good things on here this weekend since "New Moon" starts this weekend and I have to review that AND I will be doing a lot of cooking for both the upcoming church Thanksgiving dinner and the family Thanksgiving dinner . Hopefully there will be some new blogworthy recipes or at least some real mess ups that I can share.
