JULY 2005 PAUL AND FAMILY


Here's a happy bunch... wonder what was tickling them?

DAVID'S FIRST HAIRCUT


It was July 2005 when we all went to the shop to see David get his first haircut. It was sooooo long! Amy's practice is to wait until the boys were a year old at least and then get the first one.



















Daddy sat with his little guy for the first time in the chair.









Snip! Snip!.. there it goes!








Around the ears...... snip!








Good bye curls!













He's looking like a boy now..

EASTER 2005

In April 2005, I had vacation time and decided to make a trip to Valentines. Wendell's work schedule prohibited him from going along, but I took movies and some pictures. On my way home over Easter weekend, I spent the night with my friends Rick and Sandi in Maryland, and then left for home.



One of my favorite things is coloring eggs. I don't know why, maybe just because they look so pretty after? While I was there, the kids had fun doing just that.
Isaac choosing his colors.




















Gayle had peaches at supper and they gave her a rosy glow..
She liked being a part of the fun.











Esther took her egg coloring seriously and made some really nice ones.














Essie wanted to show me a ship... interesting. Wonder what she did with the bottle?

2006 VALENTINE DAY CRAFTS

February 2006. The Blair kids gathered at our house for a craft day.. My friend Sandi sent supplies, so we had lots to do. We decided to make gifts for the Valentine kids. A great day of fun!






Joyce is working on a box for Esther











While Paul made one for Isaac, and Daniel made his for Gaylie








Supplies everywhere!











David is too young yet to get into the action, so he and Grampa went outdoors.







What next ? Gramma?











Then we decided to make Valentine cookies
