Great Read

I'm currently reading a wonderful book "The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch. For those of you who haven't heard about it, there's a link to an excerpt in the right hand column of my blog, look for the book. You can also go to http// and actually watch the video.

Pumpkin Update


I really don't care for spiders, but this weekend while outside I couldn't help but become intrigued by the web and the dueling granddaddy long legs. I actually wanted to get a closer picture of the spider in the web, but my lense is short and I will openly admit that I was scared the stupid thing would jump on me.

Tis the Season...

Hunting that is.. Kenny has bought a 2 person tree stand and had the girls in it this weekend. They can all three fit in it. He fit both the girls with safety harnesses and put wood panels on the sides for safety. The girls were so excited and insisted on climbing it with him multiple times this weekend. It will be interesting to see how neat Kenny really thinks it is the first time they go out and the girls are talking, giggling, telling him they have to go pee, etc. I cant wait! I took pictures, but I'm still unable to post them. Tomorrow I'll insert pictures into all of my posts from today.

Who's Who

After the most recent pictures I posted of the girls, I've been asked by several "Who's cat?". It's our cat, a stray that showed up as a kitten a couple of months ago and had never left. The girls have named her "Whiskers". We also have a dog that we inherited from they Downings when they moved to Virginia Beach. His name is "CoCo", named by their daughter Destiny. He is a Cocker Spaniel, very sweet dog. We also have 1 hermit crab, had 2 ,but 1 died yesterday. I got them at the Amish auction for the girls. I had no thoughts on the life expectancy, but wow that was short.

I'll post pictures in a bit, for some reason I'm having trouble with that today. I also have a new pic of the pumpkin, spider pics (random I know) and new pictures of big Daddy and Ellie that I'll write about later.
