Here's Jaycee

Just a quick digital layout I did with one of my favorite pics of Miah holding Jaycee.

She's so sweet and little and wonderful and sweet and cuddly and wonderful and sweet and special. (I think you get the idea.)

Now We're Rockin' Digi Class

Due to a short (6-wk) trip out of the rain and cold of Oregon, my digi class that Miah and Wendy gave me for Christmas kinda got waylay-ed for awhile, but today I finally finished Lesson 1.

Here's the finished project that I started back in January...

See my January 6 blog entry for more details (if you are REALLY all that interested!). Okay, I just looked at that blog entry and I didn't give you any details. The pictures I worked with were ones that Chad and Melissa took on their honeymoon to Florida. Those are Melissa's sweet hands holding the frog in the main pic. I turned the photo sephia, leaving the frog in it's original colors. I'm really pleased with how this turned out.

Now, on to lesson 2.

Happy Birthday Jeremiah

On this day, 32 years ago, a child was born.
February 18, 1979

A very special child. And through the years I watched him grow


At the State Fair in Salem, OR 
Christmas 1981
First Grade, such a handsome boy

In 1998 at his Grandpa's wedding

In 1984 he became a big brother and the two of them grew together, sharing experiences and life as only a brother and sister can

February 18, 2006 Celebrating his birthday at Chevy's with his sister Melissa

And then he became an uncle, showing a new generation how to have fun, how to love and how to be a good man.

Uncle Miah and Aiden Ross

And now he is a man, all grown up and with a family of his own.

Happy Birthday to my wonderful son

Happy Birthday Jeremiah!

Seems there's always Work to be done

I know you think all we do while we're in Arizona is play, but that's not the truth. Since we have our own house there's all the usual chores in order to maintain it. In fact, we probably work harder there that we do here. All day long, all we do is work, work, work....

January 2009 - Dom putting in a new light on the back patio

Doing yardwork, got to keep that gravel raked you know!

Cooking dinner

Oops, how did that get in here? All we do is work in Arizona!
February 18, 2010, tearing the wallpaper off the walls in the bathroom
See, we're really not on, work, work....

Have you ever wondered how us "old" people get around while living in a retirement community like Sun City West???  Let me show you.....

February 27, 2008---Glen Morrill in the parking lot at one of the golf courses
February 5, 2009 - Dom getting ready to board the old mining train in the Superstition Mountains 
Bet you thought you'd only see pictures of golf carts, huh?  Fooled you! Just so you're not too disappointed, here's a couple more golf carts.

January 20, 2010 - Mark and Dom pulling into the garage at our house (or pulling out of the garage, can't really tell---does it really matter?).

And the owner of this golf cart really knows how to travel in style...

January 26, 2010, Mark just HAD to get a picture taken with this lil' beauty

That's all for now folks!

PS: I want to wish Matt and Bonnie a very Happy Anniversary!!!
