Eda is a total diva, fashionista and queen of style. Here she is in her PAJAMAS totally accessorized. Although she is going nowhere, she must look fab, because you never know who may pop in for a visit. She never leaves the house without her jewels and handbag, and hats are her favorite accessory.
Here sense of style started when she was one year old and just gets better and better. She loves to pose and prance around the house. When Mom whips out the camera, she is always ready with her million dollar smile. Maybe some day we will see her on the cover of vogue, bazaar or WWD.

With six children and two dogs, life can get crazy. You can sometimes miss the every day things that make life special as well as the big events. I can not remember the last time we went out on a "date" together. I can not even remember the last time the two of us were alone.
The great thing is that it does not matter to either one of us. We have made the choice that family is what matters most. We get more pleasure watching our children play baseball or soccer, than watching a movie. Friday night pizza with the kids, tastes better than a night out at a swanky restaurant.
Here is a rare photo of the two of us. This was taken on July 3rd, another night of family fun and festivities. It was special, because it was also our 12th wedding anniversary. What better way to celebrate our special day than with watching fireworks with our family!

I am so very proud of my 2 little guys. Yes, they are typical brothers and fight and argue, but they also love each other dearly. A Mom came to me the other day, and said she just had to tell me how polite and kind my boys are to adults and each other. On different occassions, each boy sat and watched the other play baseball. They both got so excited about their brother's successes and felt their losses as well. She said you could hear and see the love they had for one another. That makes me so proud, because Chris and I work very hard teaching them to love and respect one another. That family is the most important thing, and you should always be there for one another.
In this particular photo, Christopher had just hit a Grand Slam, and by the look on their faces, you can not tell who hit the homerun, because they are both beaming with PRIDE!!

Can you believe my master is embarassing me like this? Posting a picture of me on the worldwide web dressed in a pink tutu!! In case you have forgotten, I am a male dog. My name is PJ, and for some reason my Daddy calls me "peaches". What is with these people?? "Hello, I am a boy!!" Now those crazy little girlies think I look "cute" in this pink frilly thing. I hope the boys down at the kennel do not get ahold of this picture. I will be banned for life!! Oh well, it is a dogs's life.
Well here we are together again!! It has been far too long that the four of us have been together, but it seems just like yesterday. My cousins, Bill and Karin, myself and my sister Robin had a blast at the fireworks on the 3rd of July.
We had a tail gate party as we awaited the spectacular. The best part was that the cousins' kids were together again. They played games, shared stories and lots of laughs. We are truly blessed to have this time together.
