New Game

Matthew brought home a new German game.
It is called Thurn und Taxis
I haven't caught on to the right strategy yet.
I only had 1 point while the other players had 26.
O'well, It was fun.
Maybe next time I will get more points.

A New Friend

Look who was sitting on my desk today!
He is the newest member of the Cubs team.
His name is Spud.
(Until I can think of a better one.)
My dear officemate, Donna brought me this little guy.
She is so sweet.

CUBS WIN!!!!!!

We spent our Sunday afternoon at Nationals Stadium.
We took the metro into DC.
The metro lets out right at the new stadium.
Cub fans were everywhere!!!!
We had awsome seats seven rows
back off the first base line!This was funny to watch the presidents race.
Abe Lincoln won,
I think because he was from Illinois
and a Cubs fan, of course.Michael and I had a great day at the ballpark!

I put together these mosaic layouts
to frame and hang on a wall.
All of the pictures have been taken over the years.
I use my Macro setting on my camera to get
fabulous close up pictures of nature.
These pictures were taken last fall.
This area had just a burst of great color.
These pictures were taken in New York and Maryland.
I love snow!

I have gathered these pictures from
my own back yard and area gardens.

Sandy Creek, NY

This summer we spent five days house/pet sitting on
Sandy Pond in New York.
We had a relaxing time visiting with friends.
The following pictures are a small sample of what we did.

Michael was successful at catching some pretty big fish! We played Settler's with friends! Sarah went on her first kayak adventure
on the pond with her Dad. We went to the county fair.
We saw friends and ate funnel cakes! She couldn't believe she was standing
so close to farm animals.We watched sunsets over the pond.
We had a relaxing time in New York!
