Jessica's birthday

very cozy!

Gabriel loved playing with the tissue paper with Jessi!

So sweet

Ooopps- finger in nostril!!

We had a kangaroo mouse- IN OUR VAN

Cute little fellow, huh? Well, today after opening the trunk to our car after being at the dentist for Gino for 3 hours, this thing was in our van!! Last time I give the baby the keys to play with after dark. (door button pressed, left open all night- glad it wasn't a mountain lion!!!)

Happy 14th Birthday Patricia Ann!

She's in there somewhere getting a group mug, I mean hug!

Sign by Gabriel and Roman

Pancake breakfast by request

Lots of books, new pillows, an Inkheart game, homemade cards and a mug.

14 years ago I became a mom. I never realized such joy in this life could come from holding pure joy. I treasure you, Patricia Ann. You continue to give me joy every day of my life. Thanks for being my little girl! I love you!!! Always, Mommy
Danny took the gang to the Bass Pro Shop. We are planning Trisha's favorite- lasagna for dinner with a strawberry whipped cream topped cheesecake to sing over. yummmy

What's up

Huge moths....

Gabriel lost his first tooth- a molar!

Abu came to visit- lots of sky watching!

Trisha harvested from her strawberry patch!
