Holidazzle

November 27, 2007

There… I added four hours to my protest just to make my point. Now I hope we can all move on, and enjoy pictures of our recent outing downtown to see the Holidazzle parade….

We’ve been lied to…

November 27, 2007

Yes, dear readers… it’s true. We have been lied to.

And no… this has nothing to do with the President of the United States, or something about a local political issue here in Mound. It’s about someone misrepresenting his or her self to you, and to me.

Now I’m not going to name names here, or point fingers, that’s beneath me. Let’s just say that it’s come to light a certain local school board member whom WE ALL thought was reading and commenting on this blog, wasn’t who she said she was. It was someone else.

I can already hear the jaws dropping amongst you all, and I hope this doesn’t cause my father’s mental condition to relapse, (he’s made so much progress these last couple months).

It’s a sad day when people take their freedoms for granted. Is nothing sacred anymore?!

Because of these transgressions, I will be taking an eight hour break from blogging. Until then… take care of yourselves, and be mindful about who actually may be making comments.

12 day, 2 girls and 1 dad.

This was a video the girls and I made for Janet last Christmas. For some reason last December and January, I had difficulty uploading it to Youtube. I decided to try again tonight, and it worked!

I use the software that came with the camera to edit these videos, which works fine for most of what I try to do, but as you can see, is terrible inadequet for this video, as the sound and video do not sync very well. So please try to see past that, and enjoy the product as it is, a bit of love from my daughters and I, to Janet.

Happenings Book needed

November 26, 2007

I could go online and buy one, but would rather support a cause. If anyone is still trying to sell Happenings Books for their organization, we’ll buy it from the person who can first get it in our hands. Contact us ASAP.

Getting ready to go the Grandma and Grandpa’s house for Thanksgiving. Gotta get the girls hair fixed up. Cecelia finally has enough hair to do some work with.

I think she’s inkling with her partner.

The day after Thanksgiving of course everyone goes shopping. We don’t. However, Target was looking for volunteers from the corperate offices to work a few hours in the store, then get the rest of the day off. So Janet volunteered. The girls and I decided to go catch mommy in the act.

The lake iced over Thursday night. To the right, you can still see some water. I kept waiting for a boat to go through, but it never happened. Later, in the evening I walked out to the dock, and found it was easily a quarter inch thick!

Took this today. You can see the water slowly doing it’s damage across the lake.

Emerald Lake, from Fall to Winter…

November 22, 2007

The lake was so clear and smooth the other day, I had to take some pictures. I love the reflection in the lake here.

I like the contrast of the blue sky in this picture, with the green in the following. I’m no photographer, so the camera settings are on automatic. It’s strange to think the photos were taken at the same time.

And then it snowed Thanksgiving morning. Some nice accumulation, not enough to test Lloyd yet.

Some things to note…

November 15, 2007

I meant to note on November 1st that we celebrated 2 years in our home. Here’s what our living room looked like the first few weeks there. Notice the miter saw in the background!

I never did mention on the blog here that I got my child care license in September. Which is great, but I’m still looking for some kids to come and play with us. If you haven’t done so for a couple months, check out the action on the day care part of our site at www.linkert.name
