Remember back in February when Grandma Marie got a new puppy? This is Feb. 21, the day Rod, Dippy and I went to get Chloe for Grandma.

Not tiny, but nice and little. Easy to hold.

Let's flash forward 4 months and see Chloe now......

I don't understand why Dippy wouldn't just pick her up and hold her like in the first picture for me!! :)

Good Boy, Goofy

Hey, Dad! Where'd my popsicle go?



I walked into the bedroom last night and found this. Both of them were sound asleep.

Rod said that was the only way he could get Widget to settle down.

Hey many pics am I going to get with him waving?


He's fun to take pictures of when he's stretching. I can get some good expressions that way!

Fun Pic

I know Dippy's eyes are shut, but I took 3 shots of this and they are shut in EVERY one!! So I had to go with the one with the little guys looking good! I liked the way Widget was looking at Dippy in this one. I think Dippy may have another little one who thinks he's their hero. :)

Last Day of School

Well, another school year has bit the dust! Doesn't Dippy look so sad to see it end? :)

I even got cheesy pictures from Dingy. Without argument! And now, she is done with middle school. Forever! We begin our high school adventure in the fall.

Today's Widget Pic

Semi Formal

Tonight is Dingy's 8th grade semiformal. It took a looooong time to get ready for it. But my hopes of good pictures were crushed. I guess keeping Rod out of them wasn't the only thing I had to do! SHE was being a goofball tonight! And this is all the more I was allowed to take! AND--there was a Mom that got out of her car and was taking pictures, but "I" wasn't allowed!!

Pretty cool, huh? (I did it for her....per her instructions)

She's getting a professional picture at the dance. Maybe she'll smile normal in it!

8th Grade Send Off

Sorry. No Widget pics today. Today is Dingy's day. First, this, then later her semi-formal.

This morning was Dingy's 8th grade send off. We got there nice and early and got a seat in the front row. Unfortunatley, we sat in front of Mr. and Mrs. Chatty McChatsworth and had to witness their war on silence! Holy crap! They talked through the ENTIRE thing!!! And not whispering. TALKING. Then, I was trying to get a video of Dingy's name being called and her crossing the bridge, and the lady started talking to ME about what kind of camera I had, cause she has a Nikon, but it doesn't shoot video. Umm.. you think I want to hear YOU on my video or the teachers calling my kid's NAME???

But Dingy is now all done with middle school. Well, except for the two hours they have to go tomorrow morning. :)

Maybe we'll have a nice pic later from her semi-formal! (Maybe if I keep Rod OUT of them!! :D)

We had made Widget a team shirt for the Relay just in case he made his appearance early. I think he is tired of having his picture taken already!

He posed nicely for this one.

Now, he's bored with this camera thing.
'Maybe if I look away, she'll take the camera and leave.'

'Hmmm....what can I do to get her to STOP?'

'What's that? I think I hear Goofy calling you, Mommy!'

Now, tonight, we are off to find shoes!

Today's Widget pic. Except that it is really from yesterday. I didn't get a chance to upload my pictures yesterday!

I think I took some picture taking lessons from Rod. I seem to be standing in my light. I didn't notice the huge shadow over the poor kid!

Rod Takes Pictures

So Rod was in charge of the camera on Thursday as I was a little bit busy! I'm guessing by these pictures that giving him the camera was a mistake!!

Rod and the Camera

Just in case you couldn't here what he said, Rod says, "Oh. Oh. It's recording." :D

I think I keep him around for the laughs!! :)

Goofy's New Game

Goofy finally saw a game on my phone that I downloaded for him. He even made me take a picture of his game!

He won!
