I reconnected with my best friend growing up recently. Yesterday I called her & we spoke for the first time in about 9 years. I had a smile on my face for the rest of the day! I didn't realize how much I really missed her until I actually spoke to her. We were glued to each other from the day we met in 3rd grade until shortly after high school.

Paul's Aunt Mary is one of the best cooks that I know. She was born and raised in Greece and is a pro at all the Greek dishes.

Last night we had her daughter over for dinner and I made Greek meatballs, Greek green beans with tomatoes and roasted potatoes. Athena, wants to learn how I make the green beans because they are so much BETTER than her moms!!! Yippeeee!!!!

Athena brought her college roommate with her and even though she only took a few bites of every thing she ate everything she took. Athena told me that this was the first time she's ever seen her friend ( she's known her for over a year) clean her plate!

I guess I'm learning how to cook!

I just got through to the Compliance Dept of the Comptroller of MD....been trying for 2 weeks! And I got a kind, sweet, understanding woman who had tons of patience with my ignorant questions.

Yippee and a HUGE smile here.

Getting through to the government shouldn't be so difficult.

vagriller, when I got home from work I found that HH had done the laundry (he took today off).

does that mean we have to be extra nice to them?

Whew. I've been gone for almost a week and am behind on the times but am now back! Bucky & va- Thanks for posting the photos! Your boys put a big smile on my face! What a couple of cuties! And I love hearing the stories you both post about them too.

And because you all know I can't resist, here's my family. They can always make me smile! This was a hike we went on last week. The mountain in the backround is Mt Baker, I heard it has the record snowfall for the country.

I forgot about something that really had me laughing the other day. My son has had a small stuffed kitten for several years. Both his other favorite animals have names, so we asked him what the kitty's name was. He said "Chickenfine." Then he said "do you think that's funny?"

that's cute vagriller. i can't wait till my boy starts talking sentences. ndoes he also like to carry a handbag around on his shoulder when he's wearing mommy's heels? (i'm not worried...quite yet. )

cora, great pic!!! aidan looks like a real character, and your hubby looks like the athlete you've mentioned.
and i'm straining so hard to see your face the pixels on my monitor are splitting into red/blue/green.
stop being so modest. you look very pretty, in three colors of dots...

lol bucky! Look in the members photos in about 5 minutes. I'll post my favorite picture of all time and you'll be able to see my face without it being just dots.

you are right about Aidan though, he is quite the character. He's a little goofball. Though, poor guy, both the kids woke up with a cold today.
