Andrea and Mark were asked to be Junior Bride’s maid and Junior Groom’s man in their uncle’s wedding.  They did a great job yesterday.

Allan and I had the privilege to take the wedding pictures.  It was a fun challenge!  I will post more pictures later.

Congratulations Phil and Michelle!  Thanks for letting us be part of your special day!

Television Humor

We love the 1956 Danny Kaye movie, The Court Jester. We watched it again recently and  I think the kids laughed more at the silliness than the first time they watched.

Last night, Allan and I were watching the Murder in the Electric Cathedral episode of Murder She Wrote.  In it Jessica Fletcher (Angela Lansbury, who was the very spoiled princess in The Court Jester) met up with an elderly widow.  After watching the show for awhile, I told Allan that the widow was Griselda from the movie. When Jessica commented that it had been “thirty years since they have seen each other”, we just had to check the dates.

This episode was taped thirty years after the Court Jester 🙂


Cheese Thief

After getting dinner mostly ready, I left to get some other things done.  I came back to discover Megan had climbed up to the table and helped herself to most of the cheese I had ready for dinner.

Jumping Rope

The kids have really started to like jump roping. They keep going outside to jump rope together. It is fun watching them improve.

Adrian wanted to learn.  Here is his story.

We started jump roping. Almost everyday we go outside to jump rope. I started to learn this week. Yesterday I kept on going over the rope. I jumped a long long time. I need more practice.

I am doing very good today.  I jumped through Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair.  Fuzzy Wuzzy…then I jumped on the rope.

I am going to learn how to run and jump into the rope soon maybe. It is hard. I like jump roping.



I mentioned to Allan a fun picture I saw.  I told him that I would love to find a nice frame to try it and a few other ideas that I had.

Before coming home from work, he teased me about a “surprise” for me.  He needed to come home and drop it off. He remembered that I was looking for a frame!  He found a really nice simple black one that works perfectly for my needs!


Nap time

This is Megan taking her nap.  In case you can’t hear it, she is snoring for me.

I told Megan that she needed to stay quiet on the couch so she did not wake Momma up  from her nap.  She obeyed and stayed very quiet for me today.
