March 26: Self portrait #2. Actually, I was trying to do some thing else, but... So what can you learn about me from this photograph -- I mean besides the fact that I obviously don't clean my mirrors?
March 27: We're going to Disneyland in May. Mickey Mouse is ALL I think about lately. I can't begin to convey how much I need this trip. The Disney theme for 2009 is "What will you celebrate?"
This year we're celebrating the gift of life.
March 28: Victory! The Green Dragons (who like to call themselves the Choo Choo Trains -- because they're weird, nine years old boys) won the soccer game 8-0.
Guess who scored the 8th goal...Matthew!!
It was his first goal ever! (Matt is number seven -- the kid in front, with the glasses).
This is my niece Annie. If you ever visit Pam, you already know Annie.
In our family, there are thirteen grandkids. Twelve of them have blue eyes (blue eyes are recessive, by the way). Only Annie has brown eyes. She turns three today (as I write on April 1st) and she and I have always had a special relationship. We've always been drawn to each other.
I rarely get to see Annie anymore, as she is living in Tennessee now, and will soon be moving to Germany. But she has been in town this week and I got to see her Sunday and Monday. I'm cherishing this time, because she's going to be doing a lot more growing between visits, from now on, and I'm afraid that I won't have her all to myself anymore, from here on out.
She preferred to "make castles" with the dice.
It's been snowing every other day here, for nearly a week now. It's frankly getting a little depressing.
But someone forgot to tell the trees that it wasn't still Winter, and they've been moving right along with their plans for the Spring.
These beans are magic, because even if it's snowing outside, you can pop some of these babies in your mouth and...
Suddenly it Springtime!
In your mouth.
I wonder what would grow if Emma planted these in the garden?
