Dark Side of the Moon

I have finally discovered "Dark Side of the Moon". Wow, does anyone have some weed I can smoke so I can really appreciate this album! Just kidding, but it is pretty good. Now I know it came out in 1973, but I think this music is pretty timeless. What does everyone think? No comments from Juice, I KNOW what you think about Pink Floyd!

Clowns

Topher came to me this morning and asked if he could dress up as a clown. I told him he could if he wanted to, but it was almost time for me to go crossing and I wouldn't have time to help him put on any makeup. "Makeup!" he says. "Clowns don't wear makeup. They wear hats and gloves!". Oh, didn't realize that! So here is Topher and Kung Fu Monkey dressed up as clowns. Notice the awesome hair! That was a Topher creation specifically formulated during the wee hours of the morning (i.e. bedhead!)


Also, Topher would be sporting the Michael Jackson Clown Glove look. Guess he only needed one!

Lazy Dogs!

Okay, so I thought I would show everyone what happens when (and if) I finally have a chance to sit down and relax. Dogs and kids come out of the woodwork! Here is Dusty and Gizmo chillin with me. Notice Dusty snuggles and you can't even see her, but Gizmo..............


Yeah, he's not comfy or anything. What a boy! Usually Topher is amongst this melee on whatever side Dusty isn't.

As you can see, he has absolutely no worries in the world. If there is any karma in the world, I will come back as a dog in a house like ours!


Tim was the one who took these pics and of course he couldn't resist adding his own personal touch. It is funny, he won't smile for me, but he can do this???????

Crazy Hat Day

Here is Topher in the viking hat. He wants to wear it next year. Gizmo had to get in on the picture too!

Here is Tim wearing his usual happy grin. I do believe Tim won his class contest for best hat. I wonder why......
Here is Toph wearing the hat he wore to school. No, he didn't wear his pjs to school, he just changes when he gets home so fast, I can't keep up. I would too! He is holding his "U" kung fu monkey (Thanks Bev!).

Die Snowman, Die!

I forgot I had these picks. It all started when we went to the mall. Tim saw a sword that he really liked, but the amount of money they wanted for it (and the fact that Terry could make it at home for about 1.50) was kind of rediculous. So, when we got home, Terry made swords for both of them. I should have taken pics of the sword because they are really cool. Anyway, later they went out to build a snowman. We have a snowman kit (ya know, the hat, eyes, arms, scarf etc). I asked them if they wanted it. "No" they said, "We have something else in mind". So when they were ready, they called me out...........




They built the snowman so they could "sword" him to death. I wonder if I should be worried???? :)
