My Birthday

I had a wonderful birthday today - my 68th! There were lots of calls from our children, flowers and gifts. Malcolm took me out to dinner and we had some cake and peaches when we came home. Thank you all for everythings. I feel so blessed to have such a thoughtful family

Late Night

Tonight Malcolm and I could not sleep, so we got up, got dressed and drove to Wal Mart at 1:30 AM. Dad bought me some movies I wanted and some beautiful roses. We had a blast in the store with hardly anyone else there. Then we went home, read the paper, had a snack and are getting back in bed at 3:30 AM. Even us seniors can have some fun and be goofy!!

Our New Pennington Park

We are excited to have a new park which should be completed by the end of summer. It will be a wonderful place to take our family for outings and to play. We attended the ground breaking Saturday although it had already been started. There will be soccer fields, basketball courts, barbecue areas, & playground area. Our home is across from the upper right hand corner of the park as you view it here.

July Home Picture

This is a July picture of our home taken today. You can tell the air is still smoky, but Malcolm has done a nice job of keeping our lawn a lush green and manicured. Malcolm installed a nice screen shade for the front window to keep some of the heat out.

Happy Birthday, Amanda

It is Amanda's 29th birthay today -it is a joy having her so close by. We wish her a very happy birthday and every good thing. She is a great young woman.


Amanda dropped by the other day with her children. The boys got excited about playing a game from the lucky charms cereal box and were really into it while Carson found some old blocks and sticks which were heirlooms from Malcolm's childhood.

Paige's visit

Paige came over to spend the afternoon with us. We made her a memory book of some of her favorite pictures. Of course there was her favorite movies, but she was interested in doing things today. We snapped green beans and cooked dinner together and had a really fun afternoon.

Rachel's New dress

Rachel picked out her fabric and pattern and I made her a new dress. She looks so pretty in lavender with a matching bow in her hair. She is pleased with the result of our efforts.

Matt & Rachel's Week

We have had Matthew and Rachel this week and had so much fun with them! They are happy with anything we do and appreciate everything. We have shopped, taken walks and Grandpa fixed with old scooter that his Dad made so they have had a blast riding it down the street. Last night they found a round metal ring and played with it for hours and had so much fun. We just sat in our chairs outside and watched their imagination with a simple object!
