Presenting…..the niece/nephew!

February 4, 2009


Mark is here!  Lloyd was a trooper and cleaned up the guest room, so Mark isn’t in danger of crashing into any piles of garbage.  We’ve had a good evening visiting and comparing electronic gadgets, and best of all – talking about the new niece or nephew that’s on the way! The picture is tiny […]

It was great! I don’t know about the rest of you, but my family lives far apart and we don’t often have the chance […]
