Hoping to bribe you to continue reading my blog.

I've been absent. Oh so absent. Horribly un-here.

I'm up to my eyeballs in boxes and I'm not sure I'm seeing an end in sight yet. (it's hard with the boxes...in front of my eyeballs and all)

We have house guests in a week, which is why I'm trying to bust my hump to get this done. That and, if I don't get it done, I'll get complacent and leave a room full of boxes for the next year. Because I'm lazy like that.

But for now, here are some fun pictures of the munchkin and some Wii playing in St. Louis.

Chris Keppel - she gets the award for covering
the most ground while kicking my butt in tennis.

Dad...kicking my butt while SITTING DOWN!
Yeah, I pretty much stink at this thing!

We've been working on emotions lately.
Hey Lorelai, make a happy face...
What? No cheese this time?
and a sad face...

now a mean face? hmmm...not very mean, are you?
how about surprised?
So, do you still love me? Will you still read my blog when I get out of this unpacking funk? I'll give something away then, will that help?

Been missing you girl! I will be so glad when you get back to regular blogging. :-)

In the meantime, I have blogged 21 times in 21 days!

Lorelai looks so much older, I mean... practically 2 already :)
Kelly can help with her mean face :)
Just glad for a blog... its lonely in the blogosphere without you.

Brenda said...

Oh I remember when Little bit would play the faces game. I loved that. You need to add "scared." :)

No need to give anything away. Nice try. We aren't taking your junk off your hands!

Just post lots of pics of your new place!!!

Oh, hon, if I had a spare room to put everything I didn't want to unpack, you better believe that we would be sitting on cardboard boxes watching tv right now (yes, tv must be unpacked). More power to you! Maybe when you are done in VA, you could fly over here and help me out?

And I really am sticking around just for some cute pictures of Lorelai. Really.

I am still reading. I've been pretty absent as well. Also, I've been meaning to tell you I'd like to take you up on that trading offer. I really want one of your nursing covers. Real bad.

Hey there Rachel !
Hope ya'll are enjoying visiting loved ones. I remember we spent one year, in birmingham, ala. , living with my moms folks, while dad served in vietnam.
I sympathize with you, as you, your husband, & daughter make these changes. You are in my prayers.
Luv you,
