Kitchen Redo 03/29/06
By Daryl Lawrence
Thanks to John for doing such a nice job on putting the many pictures together that we took while remodeling our kitchen. SURE am glad it's behind us, but WHAT a difference numerous weeks of a mess can make. Neither Jan or I can still believe how different it looks, as I'm sure you who have seen it, can attest too. I wouldn't wish it on anyone, the way we had to live during the mess, we are gratefull it is behind us now.

Enjoy the slideshows here!


Weekend Outing 03/21/06
By Erin Lawrence
We took the kids to Sea World on Sat. and then the Zoo on Sun. Didn't take much time to get good pictures, but here are a few. Braden kept asking to chase the bird. I told him no it's not a pigeon. Come to find out it was. He compromised and ran along side it. : ) Erin

New Baby Pictures 03/16/06
By Susie Devries
Here are some pictures of our newest grand baby. Thought all of you might like to see what the new quarter pint looks like. :)) Mom looks a bit beat up in her pictures, but I think that's pretty normal for a brand new mom. Robert is tired to say the least, but both are very happy with their new little girl, all 5 pounds & 8oz's of her!!

Vegas Visit 03/13/06
By John Schmit
What a productive visit I had with mom. I was only in town from Tuesday through Saturday and that was way to short. We did lots of shopping and bought her a new 20" LCD TV and a DVD/VHS player. We also got her computer updated with new security software and added her new webcam. Check that out!

We did have a good time at the casino's and ate out several times. Jumpy and I even visited the indoor swap meet, where I spent a few bucks too! It was good to be with both Mom and Jumpy and I thank them both for showing me such a wonderful time. I look forward to taking Cheryl with me on my next visit.


New Baby 03/08/06
By Susie Devries
The newest addition to our family is here! Autumn Jade McWilliams was born at 12:51 AM, March 8, 2006. She weighs 5 lbs 8.5 ounces and is 18 1/2 inches long. She has a bit of dark hair and looks just like her Mama.

Labor was fairly short in my opinion, not quite 12 hours! All is well. Mom, Dad and Baby Autumn are doing great and expect to be home Thursday, March 9.

Love to all,


Lake Cypress Springs 03/03/06
By Barbara Lawrence
My friend Danella called me at 5 p.m. and asked me if I would like to go have catfish tonight so I said yes. She asked me where I would like to go and I told her to the lake because I wanted to see if this last big rain did any good. The first picture was of the sun going down and the second is to the right of the first so you can see that the rain didn't do a lot of good. We left there somewhere around 6:30 and I've never seen so many cars in my life as they were parked on the lawn and in places where people could hardly get out. It was such a gorgeous nite as there wasn't any wind and the temps were still in the low 70's when we got there.
