The Earth says HELLO!
from sweet little K-Mart brown baby turties to self portraits...this cat is craaaazy!!
giving herself a mean case of static electricity w/Gma G's hairbrush...a classic pose
here we are with all of our cousins but one (Jonathon wasn't born yet)
B. is the child that needs a spanking and I have on that great mini dress w/knee socks

the day my life changed for the better...when momma brought that "new" baby girl home to take my place, er, join our family....(it's actually just a sack of potatoes...there is NO baby in that pink "bag")

You know I love you, right B? well, I do...digging through pix with you is one of my favorite things to do and finding all these treasures this evening was a true joy. except for our obnoxious kids running in circles in your house...and the fact that I left 3 of my kids in my car, thinking we could make it a "quick" trip. I have such a blast with you...even if mom has always liked you more (I still haven't figured that one out).

We were watching the 10 p.m. news and the dude mentioned the Lunar eclipse. I hope that you out there were able to see that because it was really something. And kinda freaky too...I will try to get my funky pix of it up here tomorrow but it's 2 a.m. and I'm going to go to bed. so Molly can wake up as soon as I hit that beginning sleep.

We shall be back soon...hope y'all are enjoying the kids' blogs. They are having so much fun doing them. I took pictures of all 3 of them hugging tonight...they got "a talking to" this evening and I made them all hug after some discipline...they really are good kids. they just take each other for granted...and they got that straight from me. I'm such an infidel. ok, time for bed...using words I don't know how to use but you gotta see this thing I can post on my's a spelling thing and you can find it on the link here on my blog "Boy in a Zoo"...go visit Sam and tell him HI and also take a spelling test at the bottom of his's fantastic. I could sit and do it all day!

Ahhhhhhh. see ya tomorrow. hope you enjoyed my very Becky post!

OHmigoodness...that first picture of those HUGE green eyes sure woke me up. And the brown turtleneck pic - I thought at first that was Pipes! Love, love, LOVE the vintage pictures! Oh, Happy b'day week, B! And Happy Week-that-you-got-a-sister-and-BFF-30-years-ago, L!

Becky said...

What a horrible picture to greet me this morning! YIKES! I can't believe we finally found the BT picture...we were on a mission! Thank you so much for blogging for my big 3-0! How exciting! Tell the kids that i would love to comment on their blogs, but i can't figure out either of my passwords to do it! I'm so glad that they've started doing it as well! You're such an awesome mommy to help them do that! I had fun last night, too! xoxo

Laurie and the rest of 'em said...

Velvet - the lunar eclipse kinda freaked me out...I videotaped it (dork) and I say that over and over. You could get Sky and Sharkey blogging now and imagine them by age 12/13! Prodigies! (I've actually been correcting/editing their posts so I hope we aren't cheating...they say what they want and then I swoop in and make it sound a bit less whatever) :)
Heather - yeah, B. has some amazingly big peepers when she wants to. It's funny cuz I've been diggin thru pix of B. and have seen a lot of Miss P. You crack me right up! :)
B-I will surely let the kids know your commenting predicament. No fun. Thanks for letting us stop by last night, as always. Hope you had a good evening!

Heather said...

P.S. After seeing that picture of B where she "needs a spankin'", I'd have to say any orneriness that her girls have in their sweet little bodies they come by honest.
And, I saw the lunar eclipse last night, too - gorgeous! I tried to take a picture of it, but unfortunately I don't know enough about shutter speed, etc. to have gotten anything. : ( Then I heard something rustling in the dark and my 8-year old imagination got the best of me so I scurried inside.

Happy Birthday Becky...You're still such a young one :-) That picture made my youngest jump when he saw it btw... it really was a waker-upper!

I'm such a pathetic homeschool mom - what lunar eclipse? Why didn't anyone post about that on their blogs yesterday? Then I would have been on to it!

Sherry at the Zoo said...

UMMM?? HELLO? What's Becky going to do when she gets to work today and you haven't posted for today? You're slackin'!
