Rogan's visitor

Rogan had a visitor arrive to our home a week ago, via his backpack. It seems the children in his classroom take turns bringing home a moose named Mallory. The assignment is to do things with Mallory and record them, then post the events (by word and picture) into the traveling scrapebook. Then go back and share with your classmates what you and Mallory did. Mallory and Rogan had great adventures....... Who knew a moose that small could climb a tree. Liked candy canes....... Or riding a tricycle..... After all that buzyiness, it's good to cuddle up with a friend for a snuggly nap.

Thanksgiving 2006

We had a wonderful turkey day!! Davids parents, brother and wife all travelled in from out of town. How fabulous it was to have them here for the holiday weekend.

The weather was absolutely beautiful, and it allowed us to have out table outside under the trees and enjoying nature.

I hope you all had a wonderful start to the holiday season yourself.

Home Sweet Home !!

Our own home!!! Who'd a thunk?? Certainly not me!! Here's Rogan standing outside of our adobe style house. I love all the greenery and trees. Our own little slice of heaven! Backyard is gorgeaous too. I love the big tree, the roses and the coy fish pond. I LOVE this big, old tree!!! I named him Gandolf. This is a view from the added on "Arizona" room through the kitchen toward front room and front of house. In the process of unpacking and figuring out where everything goes. Ohhhhhhh the joys of moving.

Tea Time

My mom came in town a while back, so I gathered up the gals and we met for a "High Tea" at Abbey's Garden. Too fun!!! Every once in a while you need to have an excuse to wear a hat somewhere. Lisa and Cher in their hats. Aren't they darling!! Once we we picked out tea cups, we were served two pots of tea, finger sandwhiches, warm scones, and desserts (of course there was chocolate). All finger foods of course! Starting right, and going clockwise - my mom, Lisa, Cher, the Tea Lady - explaining our tea entrees, Carol and myself. What a fabulously, wonderful, girly time!!!!! Mom and me !!

Catching Up

Wow, where does the time go? Well, we finally broke down (not literally) and got a new(er) car. Tough going from no car payment to a monthly payment. But as you can see.... it is so worth it!!! Roxy

2003 Nissan Altima,metallic Pewter color, sunroof, cd player, loaded. Yep... named her Roxy! I find myself purposely having to go somewhere or taking the long way around just to drive and listen to the music! Rogan LOVES her!


After 9 months of waiting... and not patiently I might add, I got the wonderful news from RID (Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf), That I past my Certificate of Interpreting !!!

It hangs well next to my Certificate of Transliterating! Yea.. CI & CT. Finally!!!!!!
