voice of reason

here is my good ol' dad's new blog while he is in alaska for the summer. he thinks he is a voice of reason. ha ha.

developing my talents!

thanks to tiff for introducing me to hair today! i love, love, love this site (and right now, she is doing a give-away...go see). i have already done the hair headband on anna. and here is the proof:

my hair-doing talents are really being developed. here is the haircut i gave shawn on saturday:

i know, it really is quite short. but that's what he wanted. and i think it looks pretty good for my first haircut ever!

so, if anyone needs a braid or a short do--just come on by!

time well spent

it was my friend's birthday yesterday. i spent the day with her to help her celebrate...we had a blast! and to top it all off, we even accomplished painting a wall in her room. well, mostly i watched...not much help in the work mode. you can see what we did here.

happy birthday maryann!

tucker's first mail

tucker received his first mail today.

ruff! ruff! ruff-ruff! (that's tucker's way of saying "thank you gramma rhonda")

very thoughtful...

...especially coming from a kitty-loving gramma.

fhe: last snowmobiling outing and i actually remembered my camera

so we thought we would get in one last fun outing before the snow is all gone. we had a blast. except i fell through the snow, clear up to my chotch--freaked me out.

here are some pics for you to enjoy:

i know, big glare as the sun goes over the mountain.

we pulled the kids behind on the sled. they love riding. after i got off the snowmobile (i was riding on the back) shawn drove crazy to knock them off. mikey didn't like that.

my little tucker-oo

shawn let anna drive. she thought she was pretty hot stuff.
