Remembering my vacation 2007.....

Anna Jo and Rick are such a cute couple! They were kind enough to host our Thanksgiving dinner at their house. Many hands helped prepare the food and many hands helped to cleanup the mess! Thanks AJ and Rick for opening your home to all of us! I love you and your family very much!

This is Ilya, Anzhela's son. His basketball team from Maryland Jr. High had just won their first game. Anzhela is on the right. Oh, Anzhela is my son Bryan's girlfriend.

Ilya and Anzhela.


My son Bryan and my daughter Laura; I am so thankful and proud of both of them! I could not ask for better children!


Bryan and me. He takes after his mom in more ways than one! :o)

My sister Rubye and Chuck on our way home from Yarnell. I will be posting more pictures of Yarnell in a later post.

I love the weather in Arizona this time of year! I hated to come home to Wyoming where there is snow on the ground! As I look out the window at the brown grass and leafless trees, I yearn for springtime!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

    Rubye looks like she's holding Chuck a little too tightly.

    Jolene, I loved seeing the pictures of everyone, including you! I most definitely see the family resemblance. Glad you had such a wonderful holiday.

    We've had snow here too. It was unseasonably warm until the day before Thanksgiving, and then winter blew in mightily...

    It was wonderful to have you here, and we look forward to your next visit! I'll post some pictures soon, and, if i feel inspired, a few words to accompany them. :)

    I love you dearly, Mom, and wish you happiness in whatever your endeavor. Even if some of that happiness comes from reading the heretical musings of delusional miscreants. :P

    a.bannana: Are you the co-conspirator on Lolly's blog today. It seems you caught someone taking RJ's lighter from her Oz collection, did you set poor Chuck up to take a fall also?

    San: It was nice to go and be away for two weeks, it is hard getting back into the groove, though. It has been windy and cold here and I want to go back and sit in the sunshine!

    ms. creek: I think we should plan something for this coming summer, maybe 4th of July.

    lolly: Chuck is pouting about your blog today. Poor Chuck being framed!

    Don Coyote: Thanks for posting a comment, they are few and far between. We will see how long it takes you to post pix on your blog and I am not holding my breath! lol

    Jolene, when you have some time to kill, come over to my place and take the Dante's Inferno test. The results may surprise you.

    San: I took your test and I am in Purgatory. Yippee!

    a.bananna: you always get blamed because you are a naughty monkey and you are usually the one instigating trouble for poor Chuck but I must apologize because you did not do it this time. Go to Don Coyote's blog and see! There is conspiracy afoot in the family! (of course, Chuck has the personality to go along with any suggestions that look like fun, but he is a baby dragon and can't be held totally responsible!)
