Pay if Forward

Here's the game. The first three people to comment on this post get a prize from me. Maybe it will be handmade, maybe it will be a treat, but you will receive a package in the mail from me very soon. Now, here's the catch. You must to be willing to "Pay it Forward." You will also need to send a treat to three people who comment on your blog. So comment away!! And make sure I either know your address or can get hold of you.

I got this idea from here. Feel free to also check out this blog and leave a comment - although there will be no prize involved.

A new family member...

We got a puppy this weekend. She's a cute little Jack Russel Terrier. The kids just love her. Welcome to the family Penny.

It was warm outside today so Pat and Hillary walked to pre-school around the corner. Isn't she cute with her backpack and Redskins sweatshirt. She loves to wear that sweatshirt and be just like Dad.

Celebrity Sighting

I saw Sam the other day outside my work and luckily had my camera with me. Who knew there'd be a celebrity sighting in Springville. Plus I was immediately thrilled because finally I have an excuse to post that song on my blog!!!

PS. I was supposed to post a piece of art Bre created today - but I forgot to scan it last night so look for it tomorrow.

By Breanna

Breanna is now in a photography class at school. She is doing well so far I think. One of her first assignments was to take 6 pictures of a person. She of course chose the cutest subject- Hillary Tinka. Due to some confusion and sharing of camera's hers got turned in a day late so she didn't qualify for the "picture of the week" even though her teacher said he would have used one of hers. So I thought I'd post them here instead. So here is a series of Hillary. Note what a skilled actor she is - Bre told her to make angry and sad faces. She lookes stoned in a couple so I don't know what emotion that was. But she's still cute. And ignore the dirt on her face - I do.

More Pictures from way back in December

The botanical gardens puts up a great display each year. They made replica's of some major DC monuments/buildings and created a whole world around the trains. All the buildings and trolls are made of all organic material. My kids and newphews LOVED LOVED LOVED the trains. IT was a really fun trip into DC.
