ACK!!!  I forget every upload to go backwards...this is Henry now.

This is Henry the day after we brought him home.

Oregon for Turkey Day.

I took about ten pictures of the kids, I like this one of Gracie the best...on the last couple, not posted here Charlie is walking away like, "oh forget this!"

Look at Charlie!  HEHE

Neat!  We are Lake of the Woods in all of these photos.

Skipping stones!

Mt Shasta, amazing!!!  One of the tallest mountains in the US.

Kids and Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving with Ilissa and Tina too!  I LOVE this picture of Jude!


I took these pictures on the side of the road on the way home from Gilroy.  Straight out of the camera, pretty nice huh?  Farmland and excellent!

Again, more pictures.

Are we having fun yet?


Learning to walk.

This happened moments after the next picture, all of the pictures are loading backwards...

This happened first.  Two seconds later the other photo happened.

Random Moments

This must have seemed like a good idea at the time!

Art project!

Playing with Papa!!!

2 of the 4 attempts to get a good picture of the children.

Fall Fun

This was back at the end of October.  We had a lot of fun feeding goats, riding on bikes and doing a corn maze...this is just a bit of the excitment out in the HEAT!

Butterflies migrate through this area starting now and going through February. We went one morning with my dear neighbor Tina--seen here in the pictures and another friend. Gracie loved holding the Monarchs and I hope to have better pictures with thousands soon!!!

EarthBound Farms

This is a wonderful little organic farm (nationally known with many farms throughout our amazing country) about 15 miles from the house with a FARM STAND!! Next year I plan to spend MANY Saturdays there with the kids. These pictures were taken at the Fall Festival.


These first pictures don't do full justice of how cute they look--especially Jude. You'll see in future posts. They went from 70's kings to respectable little boys;)

Jude's 1st Birthday Part 2

Cake eating. It's an enjoyable thing.

Happy 1st Birthday Jude Part 1

We enjoyed a nice evening with friends for his first celebration. He seemed to thoroughly enjoy himself. Sorry about the red eye...I'll fix it one day.
