Well, the tales have been flyin' by here in SC, and I finally grabbed a few to toss on this post. Whew! Things have been busy, and the computer is slow - not a good blog combo. The normal pace was loudly interrupted by a quick visit from two of my Cincinnati cousins - Emily and Leslie who joined me on a little trip to GA where we attended the funeral of our late Grandpa's brother. The three of us had more laughs in one day than in previous years combined, and my sides and face are still recovering! :-) I learned all manner of things about my cousins. One of them being the fact that Leslie is terrified of other people's driving. What fun Em and I had!!!!!! Les even resorted to spending part of the time under her jacket as we reached ungodly highway speeds to make up for lost time. (Time that was lost when Troy accidentally dropped the GPS in my glass of milk! That's another story. . .)
Notice Em's look of glee!
Notice Les' look of unglee

Aunt Juanita and cousins of all degrees.
I had intended that the video be posted on the top, but since Bloggger is not cooperating, you'll have to visit the bottom. I captured the lovely video for some of the fam to see what happens when a bunch of us get too little sleep and too many laughs. I honestly cannot remember when I have laughed so much in one 24 hour span. Enjoy the video - especially you, Aunt Kathy! :-) That's your baby girl! Hee! Hee!
As for our "normal" and not so funny grind of life,
I have included a few pictures for your enjoyment.
We have a little boy who is quite fascinated with the Betta,
books with animal pictures,
He is in the midst of an early morning play session.

An outing with Aunt Joanna and the Russos
always a memorable time!
Some people take their cake eating a bit too seriously!
Some people take their computer games a bit too seriously. :-)
