Moe! (Click on picture to view full size.)

Beth and I meeting Izzie and Moe for the first time after flying out to Oklahoma! (I was already starting to look a little green!)


Donna and Gerry Fish of Fish Aussies with our pups. The sweetest people you will ever meet!

Moe!

Izzie and Moe all tuckered out! Fast asleep on the couch and then in the back of the car.


Getting ready for the flight home. And waiting at the airport.





After many delays I arrive home at 3AM and wake the family!


Checking out the new place after a few hours of sleep.


Getting to know his brother!

Feeling at home already!

Random Happenings

After Thanksgiving we drove Ted back to Pomona. Angel had a great time in the dorm!

Ted and Marshall have quite the dorm room. That's a sofa and club chair in front of the bunk bed to view the TV.

Back at home it was time to get ready for the holidays.

And then time to celebrate the big 50 with Jonathan!

Thanksgiving in La Jolla

Here we are getting ready to travel to California.
We met Ted in LA and drove down to my family in La Jolla for dinner at my cousin's house.
Ted and
Arielle entertained themselves on the piano.
Angel and I took nice walks around La Jolla Cove and Seal Beach each morning.
Our last night at my Aunt and Uncle's house we looked through some old family shots. Here is me and my sister with my dad and with my mom.

More Moe...

Don't forget you can click on the pictures to see them larger!
Moe at 5 weeks is 2.1 pounds. We have no idea how big he is going to be now. We're guessing full grown he will be under 20 pounds.

Moe on the left with Izzie who now weighs in at a whopping 2.25 pounds.







This was Moe at 4 weeks, just about the 2 pound mark.....I am flying out to get him on Dec. 6th, can't wait!!!!

video

Parts of this past weekend's performance at The College of New Jersey. I had the center spot on the podium so the video is pretty close up of Arielle and the others that I could occassionally fit into the screen. Enjoy, gv (I'm about 90% uploaded and just realized I forgot to add in transitions, so this video will be a little choppy to watch but hopefully still enjoyable!)

This past months happenings to share.

This month I started taking a Lampworking class. These are my very 1st beads, quite pathetic but we all have to start somewhere! I love my blowtorch!

Arielle's major accomplishment at home this month was cooking us all a dinner by herself. She made Orange Glazed Chicken, and it was yummy!










Once again Angel started barking and we had a hot air balloon land in our cul-de-sac.












The rest of the balloons are all in one day. I went to visit my friend Marisel, 3 houses down from me, and yes, another balloon in our cul-de-sac.

Arielle called me and asked me to come pick her up. Here I am driving down the road.





And then I stopped at a stop light and snapped this one.

Realized I need gas, so here I am at the gas station.

This is one of the last covered bridges, this is on our way home. Just thought I'd share.

And then, on the other side of the bridge and down the road, yet another balloon. There were a couple of more today, but couldn't get to take a picture. It was an amazing day!











As I was going through my pictures I found this one. Spoke to Ted friday and he is having an amazing time. We miss him. Hugs, gv

Here's a 2 minute peek at the pit's warm up, they put in about 20 hours a week. Guess you can pick out Arielle! For those of you not tech savy, M O M, press the little arrow button to make the video start to play.

I can't get the actual performance to load, it's too big for this blooger. But, enjoy the award ceremony!

The Claremont Experience

Another beautiful day in California. We drove up to Claremont and drove all around the area. Here is the welcome to Pomona College.

There is a little area known as The Village attached to the colleges. Little shops and restaurants, tree lined streets.

It's a great area and Arielle got a little alone time with Ted before flying home to band camp!


The following morning at registration we were greeted by the Pomona Sagehen. Go Sagehens, Chirp Chirp!
The building behind Jonathan is Ted's dorm.
The lovely dorm room and his roomate Marshall.

Saying our good-byes in the courtyard.
This is the view from the main street in the Village as we start our way home. This is what Ted will see everyday. The San Gabriel Mountains.
Someone was happy to see us home!
