It's a wonderful day at Bird's Eye View!

For the first time in probably 8 years of having a wood duck box on our property, I actually got to witness 9 new babies popping out of the box this morning!  AND got it all on video.  Don't  you wish I knew how to get video from that old camera onto this blog????   I'll work on it! 

This isn't this year's family but it gives you an idea!

More photos from our fab weekend!

Ralph took all of these as we were gathering around Gail's wonderful food and preparing to partake!  Since we had 4 pastors and 35 hungry people, I had them draw straws to see who gave the blessing.  Pastor Krissy  drew the short straw and graciously gave a short blessing!
We then chowed down on 2 smoked brisquets, 3 racks of smoked babyback ribs, 3 packages of smoked sausages, pea salad, potato salad, and pinto beans (carnivore and vegetarian!).

With three wonderful cakes for dessert, including this one brought by our friends Joan and Emma.

Then it was time for Posing for Pictures!  Can't get away from AuntB's house without that!  We started out with the Senior (or MOST senior) group....Generation One!

Then Generation TWO



Generation Three (missing Kathy's kids)

              Generation FOUR (missing Kathy's grandkids)        

Mom's bunch, missing Kathy's kids and grand-kids.

                                    Nancy's bunch --- missing Lara and Val and Carol's families

And finally, the whole gang!

What a FABULOUS weekend!!!

Our sweet Alexis graduated TCU on Saturday and we partied here on Sunday, which was also Mother's Day. There was lots of hugging, eating (Gail really outdid herself!), singing, guitar-playing and just generally LOVING BEING TOGETHER!

Conspicuously absent and dearly missed:  Lara--who's in Italy this summer with Carol and Rick and Maeve.

This was when Roger presented Jonna the wonderful portrait of Gemma that he painted for her.

Good Food and Good Friends--does it get any better?

Only if the good friends BRING the good food!  

And these did!  Dungeness crabs!!

Gail worked her magic and we dug in!  EXCELLENT!!!!!!
Thanks, Joan and Emma!  Y'all come back now, ya hear?

Winter Wonderland on Water

While I'm  not sure I'd like this for 3 or 4 months out of the year, it sure is fun for a day or two!

Cindy's bugging me to post, so ......

Guess there has been a few things going on since my last post.  Here's a small sampling.

Somehow my baby brother is now 50 years old!
Here he is with a Sept 1959 copy of Playboy we
gave him.

In October we had the official dedication of our
new church building (which we moved into on
May 31) and the DeCuire Community Center.

In November the clan from Mom's side gathered at Leanna's for fabulous fellowship and amazing food!
Cindy and I took the ferry to Pt A and spent some quality time on the beach on our way over.

Cindy was quite the trooper, having started her 6 month endurance marathon with chemo.  She let me shave her head and then posed with one of her new head coverings.....which says it all!


And dear old Dad hit 80 on Dec 16.  We 
assembled a collection of photos, books, mags
from Dec of 1929.
