Hello folks,
Our house search may be drawing to a close. Spring is just around the corner ... 
Jack is such a blessing!
As always,
Love in Christ Jesus,
Michael & Rebekah Thomas

St. Patrick's Day

Preparations for the feast


Irish colors are hung

Sean shows off Jack's St. Patrick's day gift

"A family of Irish birth will argue and fight, 
But let a shout come from without and see them all unite

Now THAT is a feast!

Somebody's birthday?

Spring ... it's so close you can almost touch it. 

Jon's Send Off

I get to review Jon's gear before he heads off to Alert


Outside, Jeff gives Jon his card, "Remember home is where the heart is ... and for the next three months you will be carrying it on your back"

Well, those Alert guys will probably take the Hat, but those cards will leave Jon plenty prepared for whatever happens. By the time you read this, the ALERT academy will have pictures posted:

Now that smells good.

Settling in to talk

"Well YOU can talk if you want to! I say let's play a game"

The games commence


Katherine grabs the ball. "Freeze" she cries

Then, yours truly begins to wonder why he stuck around to take pictures instead of running like the genius he is supposed to be.

Though now out, I am afforded a better view of the proceedings

Enjoying the sweet fruits of victory 

"Oh  mommy ... You should just TASTE your arm!"





Walking at the Monestary

"There goes my life,
There goes my future, my everything ... I love you"

Camera magnet


"Daddy's not really that good!"

Well, it's only been a year ... but I guess that's what happens with a $1,500 vehicle

Good by 


Enjoying that peaceful feeling you get after a good sneeze


"At some point, I bet I can do 100 pushups"

"Today isn't that day ... tomorrow isn't looking good either"

Saturday preparation

The art of Chaos

Even though things chilled off over the last few days, spring is definitely coming! Trailer gates need repairing, mowers need new tires, blades need sharpening ...

Other's take advantage of the the clear weekend 

"Michael! Do you want a fat pill?"

Shaping up


Bidding ...
Well folks, that's all for now. 
Y'all come again! Ya hear?
