Where I ramble endless wisdom out of my very core... galoshes may be required.

Yeah, we went shopping! But it's only because everybody kept yelling at us for dragging a half-nekked baby around in sub degree weater (C). People are mean - very mean. And bossy. And they think you can't hear them, when you really can!

Btw...the bankie says Sweet Baby. Yah! The maiden name is kinda handy sometimes.

On the way home, we stopped in to see Great Grandma Maxon and she rocked Lisa until she stopped fussing. Don't worry about us wasting our money on doll clothes, we just found out there are two great grandbabies coming...Chris and Sarah in June and Ben and Kristy in July! Congratulations Kathy Snyder!!!!

Woot! Woot!!


Sarah can't get her LJ to load her pictures, so I'm going to do a series of three. Forewarned is forearmed. So here's the proud Mama with the "prettylittlegirliebaby, Iwuvyou".


Hi Everyone:

I'd like to introduce you to Sarah's Health Class baby, Lisa Artaxexes Maxon. Better not to ask on the whole name thing. Anyway she'll be taking up residence with us for the weekend, so enjoy her while you can.

I think I'm going to start a series on who we are. Just so friends and family alike can get to know us a little better. Today I'd like to introduce you to Dave. He's shown with a beard - which he doesn't have anymore.

Married: 26 years.

Family: 6 children, 5 siblings (he's #3), 1 wonderful Mom, 3 sibling inlaws, 1 wonderful Mother-in-law (go ahead and ask him!).

Okay I did the girls picture last time, so here's one of Ol' Tom back when he was new Tom. The present day resemblance is uncanny, wouldn't you say?

I think he's singing something from Death Cab for Cutie.

Actually I'm probably singing to him which would explain his bemusedness. If you want to see the words you'll have to link over to Tom's LJ and find them in the comment section.

1. Full Name
2. Favorite Song?
3. Favorite Movie?
4. Dogs or Cats?
5. If you were on a desert island, and you could only bring one thing, what would it be?
6. What's the funniest thing that ever happened to you? **
7. What's your favorite holiday?**
8. If you could ask Jesus to clarify something biblical or religious, what would it be?
9. If you could ask God one question what would it be?*
10. Have you talked to anyone about your religion who wasn't already in your religion? **

*I changed this one question.
**I added these three questions.
