Robie House

I finally finished my Lego's Robie House, all 2,276 pieces. The roof comes off so that you can put little battery powered lights inside to illuminate the house.

My Cousin Russell Dan

Here are a few pictures of my cousin Russell Dan Herring. I don't remember ever meeting him or his family. The only memory I have is of 2 Christmas presents I received from his family when I was very young. One was a tiny make-up kit and the other was a homemade sock monkey made by his wife Barbara. Barbara and Russell Dan had 6 children, Kay, Beth Ann, Danny, David, Jennifer, and Kelly.

With my mother.

All the cousins.

Ginger and Her Kitty

Although Ginger doesn't look too happy here, I think she really enjoys it when her kitty comes in for a visit.

My Cousin Eileen's Wedding

My cousin Beverly, Eileen's sister, is on the right.

My mother made my dress.

Hard to tell from the pictures but the dress is a dark turquoise.

What a beautiful bride.

Eileen at age 14

When I was 3 or 4 I was asked to be a flower girl in my cousin Eileen's wedding to Jerry Paul Cobb. I don't remember too much about the wedding but I do remember that after I walked up the aisle I still had rose petals in my basket so I turned around and started going back down the aisle. Everyone in the church thought this was cute and I heard the story over and over again as a child.
Eileen and Jerry Paul have 3 children, Derek, Michael, and Jerri Lynn.

Rosie was adopted on this day in 1999. Here are some pictures from the first weekend she spent with us on John's farm in Anderson.

The whole pack.

She still can't sit up straight.

In John's hands.
