The Virus Upon Us, Pictures, And Hope...
(Belated September 2009) My dog,Toby... My brother-in-law found him. He had been mistreated and was super timid. Still is. But look how cute. He is name after a childhood favorite movie, Toby Tyler.
(Belated September 2009: Miranda and Dario chilling on the glider...Yes, that is a detergent container cap that she is playing with. It makes a great cup. Hah!)

(Belated September 2009: I caught Dario eating rice from the stove. He is quick. He figured out how to climb onto the counter, was hungry, and decided he wanted what was in the pot. Good thing it was cooled off. (P.S. To keep a kid calm enough to take a picture of him while in a potentially dangerous spot... DON'T rush at him! Go calmly or he will panic as you are. Just something I had to learn the hard way.):-)
So, now we have a virus going around our kids... not so much vomitting, but really strong stomach cramps and the runs. Interesting virus. Not so comfortable. Has lasted about 4-6 days for the first two recipients. Who is next, I wonder???
Well, as much as I always seem to be sharing a new adventure in family drama or illness with you, I will tell you honestly... this winter has been quite a good one. We have had a pretty healthy fall and winter, in spite of our month long bout of the chicken pox, various colds, and some scattered viruses along the way.
There has been no bronchitis, not RSV, no pneumonia, etc... Things are not perfect, but... I will count my blessings!!!
With that, I will leave you with a few very belated pictures from September 2009!
Oh, and Spring is almost here!! Tell me that is not great news!! Woohoo!
