In case you haven't noticed, there is an additional child in our family photo. I would like you all to meet the newest member of our family. She is the pretty little 7 year old in the purple dress. "Eloise" now has a little sister. We have decided to call her, "Amelia Bedelia".

The day that forever changed our lives....

Today we celebrate the anniversary of an event that changed our lives forever. The care free days of just living for one's self came to a screeching halt eight years ago on this very day. Crayons and chicken nuggets bumped filet mignon and valet parking from their lofty pedestals. It's not all gloom, despair, and agony though.....there is a silver lining to this story.....because of this monumental event.....every year on August 21st ........our family is entitled to a free ice cream and a snazzy sombrero!.....Tears of joy....just think....it's all worth it in the end. ;-p

Maw Maw's B-Day is in August too!
Dos Sombreros!!!

Silly Dad...Sombreros are for Birthdays!!
