Getting ready for a party

Madison helped us clean with Scrubbing Bubbles to get ready for her third b'day party next week.

We gave her a mostly empty can and it was amazing how much foam she managed to get out of it.

Ah, the power of scrubbing bubbles...

After the bubble fest hairball showed us this wonderful Elmo costume. It of course ended up on Blue. unfortunately the body part was too short for his long self.

Degreening my life

Just wanted to post some really awful pics and hopefully some much better ones. The first two look like a room in a house that should be condemned. The second two are much more inviting. We should have taken a picture of before we took the built in desk and shelves out - but didn't think about it in time. I love the fact that the room ended up a slightly darker shade of the same color that it started out with before they built the desk. This is visible in the first picture. What you can't see is the beautiful wooden floor that needed ever so little TLC - it has been covered with carpet for years.

Painting by a famous artist

Just wanted to share my Fitzsimmons original with you....

Nothing political about it, even though he is a political cartoonist for the Az Daily Star in Tucson.

It even looks a little like me - long neck and all....
