Thanks for stopping by! We were a family of three, until we added one more (cat, that is), making us a family of four. In 2012, we added four more...one husband, two girls, and a dog. We have a full plate as a party of eight!

Adoption, blended families, pets, school, running...it's all here. Pull up a chair and read a while. After you do, please leave a little comment love! It makes me happy...and y'all know...if Momma is happy, then everyone is happy...at least at our house!

Game Show Audition!


The "Wheel-mobile" was in town this weekend. So Gloria and I went with some friends, just for the fun of it. After all, she loves to watch Wheel every chance she gets, and can even solve some puzzles or at least figure out some words before the contestants.

I filled out an application and dropped it in the bin, never really expecting anything to happen after that. There were lots of people there, and even if they were calling 5 people at a time, what were the chances, right? Well, guess what...my name was drawn! Imagine the surprise!

Now, I didn't solve the puzzle, but I did get a letter right. And who knows if I'll be chosen for another round of auditions, but it was fun! We keep looking at each other and giggling. Gloria keeps shaking her head and saying "I just can't believe my mother was on Wheel." And she is already planning for me to be on the real show and win lots of money. When that happens, she wants to celebrate by taking a trip to Paris so she can see the Eiffel Tower!

Recent Doings

There was money in that Easter egg!

(My only picture from Easter morning before the battery in my camera needed to be charged. I have lots more on my "real" camera, but need to finish the roll of film.)


Stay away from the basket!


Taking Screamer for a walk. It's more like taking him out to roll in the pine straw and stretch out in the sun. He hasn't figured out the "walking" part yet.


Ready for an Easter egg hunt at QC a few weekends ago.
