mike fixing my vacumme

My Hubby is awesome!!!
I just love to vacuum...sometimes I get carried away and my vacuum will suck up something it shouldn't (like a crocheted hankie)...good ole Mike gets it unclogged for me.

I was surprised when Josh agreed to let me take his photo yesterday for his first day of class (bright and early at 6am~on my day off)...what a good sport he is!!!
*Notice Dewey by the door saying bye to Josh too!

dewey 2

Since my computer was having some issues (overheating), and I didn't post yesterday...I thought I would make up for it and post two pic's. Here is Josh's cat Dewey (who was rescued), I have to say, I was not excited about adding another kitty to the house...but Dewey is the friendliest cat ever!!! I LOVE him!!!!!

sharon 2

I was uploading some photos to my computer from Josh's new camera and these were on Josh's card...I liked this one of Sharon (a little out of focus, but cute no less!!), Josh is really doing a great job learing his Canon (former Nikon shooter).

Mike does not enjoy getting his picture taken...the other day I was playing with Josh's new camera and was snapping pictures of him~he said "I hope these don't end up on the Internet", so I decided to post this one of him studying for Sunday (no face, LOL!).
