Camera Sadness

So my camera has been on the fritz...So I thought if I could get those fabulous 10 dollar lithium batteries, we would be fine....but no! I put in those shiny new batteries and nothing. My camera wouldn't even turn on. I am so sad. I have borrowed my granddaughter Katie's 3 pixel camera but I am hoping that you will all be so sad not to see my incredible pictures that you will send donations to my camera fund. Maybe you have an old camera you just never use that is more than 3 pixels. Maybe I will just have to get a second job! Just kidding but it will be a bit before more pictures come your way. So just be patient.

We have a little restaurant in Hamilton called Past Times and they have an Elvis Impersonator! Yes it is true...not all are so luck as we are! Any way tonight Megan came up and went with Ron and I and Spenser to our own home town Elvis impersonator. It was so entertaining to see all the Missouri folk in there overalls and button up sleeveless shirts enjoying themselves. We had a great time whoo hooing and whistling and he even put a sweaty scarf around mine and Megan's neck. The best moment was when he started to sing America the beautiful and the entire crowd rose to their feet and took off their hats! I love the Mid West!

Ashelyn Ann has arrived!

We welcome Ashelyn Ann Doan to our family! Misty went into the hospital around 6 am and had little Ashelyn in the early afternoon. She weighed 7 pounds something ounces and was 21 and so many inches long.

I was just so taken with her beauty I can't remember a thing.
But we are sure glad she is here!

Gid's new toy!

Misty got Gideon this new toy at a garage sale for a buck. It's so cool.
Jake wanted Gideon to come thru the tunnel with him...
