Not to mention the cute outfit - Thanks, Grandma Sara!

Papa Calendar

We have started marking off the days on a calendar by putting a sticker on each morning. Since the return date is never certain this seemed to make more sense than trying to count down.

life abroad

Mark sent me some pictures today from their stop in Australia. However, from the picture you can see that he is the same anywhere in the world . . .

Laura and John sent me flowers!Rebecca spent most of the day on the computer . . .

My birthday

Today was pretty good! I baked a cake which the girls decorated. They had a babysitter for an hour this morning while I was running errands. Alex helped them make a card for me.

I put the chocolate frosting on. Rebecca decorated with icing tubes. Megan added the sprinkles!

Curly as promised

Better late than never.

It's a purple kinda day.

Both girls decided to wear purple today and have pony tails. They were so cute, I thought I should share.

New dalmation

Here is a great shot of our happy new dog. Grandma Sara sent her this outfit. She LOVES wearing it. Of course, everyone who sees her says, "how cute!". I think that most of the time - even without the outfit.

"the Flood"

Oh, yeah, this was what the front yard/road looked like when he left . . .

Tomorrow I will take a picture of what it looks like without the water so you will be able to really see difference. Also, Megan wants me to take a picture of their new curtains in their bedroom so that Papa can see them.

more photos . . .

Mark's departure

This was taken on the morning that we took Mark to the air terminal for his six month cruise.

I know I haven't posted lately but things have finally calmed down enough to be able to do just that. Here is a picture from Dec, when the girls got their new bunkbed.
