Thanks to daughter Amy's friend, Lori.....we have pictures of little Liam Thomas when he was just a few hours old!! This precious little one arrived this morning, a couple weeks before we were expecting him, but is healthy and all is well!! Amy is just fine, also!! Big Sisters Madison and Mackenzie have been to see him this afternoon! Amy says the novelty of him lasted about one minute!! HA!! Liam does not look at all like either of the girls when they were born. They looked almost exactly alike for the first several months. Genetics are interesting, for sure!! Liam is the smallest, too. He weighed in at 6 lbs. 13 oz., and 20 1/2" long. Congratulations to all!!!!

Spring in Colorado can take on a strange look and feel........like today...heavy, wet snow!! Yep!! SNOW!! Thirty degrees and snowing like crazy!! But, as I have said many times, this too shall pass...and soon the flowers and the fresh buds, the green grass and new growth will all be visible again!! I guess our depth is about 5-6" now...and still snowing...... Enjoy the pics!!

Earth Day was first celebrated 40 years ago, as a means of increasing awareness of Mother Earth and how we can do our part to take care of protecting and preserving our environment. Perhaps today is a day to take a personal inventory of what we each are doing to care for our own little piece of the world, make changes to reduce our own personal carbon footprint, and increase our participation in Reduce, Reuse, Recycle efforts. Perhaps this is a day to plant a tree, plant some flowers, clean up some litter in a public area, or do something else to make our planet a bit nicer! Think GREEN!! Enjoy the day!!

MORE SNOW!!! YEA!!! Spring snow is just as beautiful as any snow!! As many of you know, I LOVE the snow!! As you can see from the picture, we had somewhere in the range of 5" of the beautiful, but heavy and wet snow fall during the night and this morning. The snow has stopped now, though, and the sky is clearing with the sun shining brightly. Weather in Colorado is so refreshing! We have had LOTS of wind recently, though. The wind stirred up the dust, filling the air, so when the rain came two night ago.....it rained MUD!! Yep!! Cars, windows, etc.....are now covered with a strange red-brown mud!! Enjoy the pics!
