The Nest Emptying...Old Family Photos..


I am switching out some of my 8x10 layouts in my photo screen and as I was looking in the album that I put them in after they spend their time in the screen, I came across these old family photos. We all look so young here and I am thankful that my nest emptied slowly ...
....and I am also thankful that we still have Michael here to keep us thoroughly entertained... =)
I gave the guys haircuts tonight and Michael didn't think he needed one just yet. I told him he needs to look nice for his jobs.............he told me he looks nice enough... =)


We did the haircuts anyway. I am glad he doesn't realize that if he really didn't want to do something .....there is probably not a whole lot I could do about it... =)


He is a lot of fun, and is still very obedient....he might walk off grumbling about it under his breath....but he always gets his chores done and in the end, does what we ask of him...




Steve has been working in the shop for days on the planter. We are very close to starting. The ground temperature is still a little too cold and the soil a bit to wet yet, but maybe by the end of the week.

.......And I just remembered as I was grabbing those family photos that I never did post a photo of the cookies that Alison helped me decorate! I did not want to reveal them before the wedding rehearsal, so I'll just post them here... They were so fun to decorate! =)

Well, I can tell that Michael and Wilson are related...he never seems to think he needs a haircut, either!

Ha...I just looked at my word verification below and I'm being asked to type "spudstro"

Devin hates getting his hair cut!

ps..you should add the photo in the oval frame off the ent. center with all 4 kids in it...you don't have a "full nest" picture here!

Hmmm..just for the record, the title of that oval pic says "family 1989" and that is definitely not 1989!!! I had to be in the 8th or 9th grade there, at least..so I would guess about 1992?

I know..I can't find the directory that this was in, but look how much younger Michael looks than in the following one...I was kind of going by that....
