I read to Pinkie in a whisper a book that's called "Shhh, Baby Jesus is born" cuz in the book it says to "shhhh".
Pinkie: Paula, you don't have to whisper, the people are in the book, they're not really here.

No, I have no idea where she gets it from.

I am a sickie Pooh

Asthma has gotten the best of me...Pala has now rooted me to the bed
but I still play with my favorite tea set....shh,disregard the Pinkie label...

Jelly daisuki!!

and as you can see, though my health is beaten, I'm not breakin! " Be strong peaceful warrior, be strong" My spirits still soar, thanks to the tea set.

This Girl of Ours.....

upside down,
full of character,

goofy some more,
adorably cute,
kina foolish,
....and just totally precious. (that's not to say that's all she is, oh no, she is so so so much more!)

"Shane I think I lost one of my toes!!" S: "....wha..." *SNAP* yessss!!! whew, I pulled a fast one there!
Yes, I know you appreciate it dear family, getting photos of these once adorable little squishy-munchies -turned strapping young handsome lads is no easy task!

This is love because he is allowing my foot to be so close to his head.
"Love is like oxygen"
"Love is a many splendid thing"
"Love lifts us up where we belong"
" All you need is love"

"All you need is love"

"All you need is love"

Days of Our Lives at the Park

A man needs his space...and time to think to himself.

Now..I Wonder Why....

The 17th of September is a blessed day......every year somehow we remember being happy...somehow... It must be the first cool winds of Fall. yes, that's what it is. It begins to feel a little cool, but just enough to feel cozy with your sheets. Ah! There's always some sort of food memory in there as well.. and as you know, good food is the best happy pill for any! Well, at least for us. Good weather, good food.....and yes, we always sing! For that is what you do when you are happy. Oh! we feel a song coming on now!
Haaaaaaaaaaaaappy Biiiiiiiiiiiiirthday toooooooooooooooo youuuuuuuuuuuu.
You can't run from it Chibs! We will find you wherever you are and sing it from the depths of our soul. Or maybe just a birthday chat will do. WE LOVE YOU!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Haaaaaappy Birthday!!!

Ced, when asked what kind decoration he'd want on his cake: "Oh you know, the kind the grown ups have"

All prepped up for Ced's jolly day!

Complete with gifts from relatives in Niigata! ( The Noni box is not a coincidence! I think Gpa wants to fill our childhood memories with Noni products!)

" What's this?? an MP3 player???AND gummy head phones? nooooo....it can't be!! but it is!!! THANK YOU A.Chibi!!!"
Thanks Gma and Gpa.... keepin it real...
Sweet Chibs even got me a present for her birthday! Talk about love....More and more Chibi and Papa's tastes are overlapping...the vest has Papa written all over it...the writing on the package did too......hmmm....
"It's perfectly plain, with ALL the colors of the rainbow!" I can pull it off, don't you think Pops?
