A Quick Hello

I'm showing Dad and Ona the website. Promise to get them registered before they leave. We had a fun day - babysat Kamryn all day, went to the airport to see Shaun fly in on a training flight. Tomorrow we're going to Cripple Creek. Kim is over 21, so she thinks she's going to show Grandpa Glenn a thing or two with Texas Hold 'Em. Wednesday Dad and Mike are going to play golf. Of course Thursday we'll be stuffing our faces. Turducken and deep fried turkey are on the menu again this year. We're supposed to get snow, so will probably stay inside, eat, watch TV and play board games.
Love to All, will blog again soon.

Good Morning!
This is how our day begins...bright and early! Our dog, Piper had a toe removed a week ago. She is doing just fine, however , it is just like having a child in the home once again. She has the cone and bandaged foot during the day, everything off while we are here. Have to wrap the foot in an IV bag to go outside! It is the rain and snow season...yuck. Piper's tumor that was removed was tested and is not malignent. Besides that, we are all just fine. Lauren's beau Jeff got a real nice six point buck yesterday. She is experiencing her first "gut and dress" this weekend ! Not really like the prom theme!! John is doing well. Off to Vegas for trade shows in a few weeks. Me, just jammin! Let us know if you want anything. Thanks for the pic's Laurie. Glad to here you are on the roster again to hit the slopes! Good job Lindsay! The clan keeps growing and growing. Will post/talk soon, love to all,
Angela, John, Lauren, Fatty-oh,and Girley :>)

Hello All

I've been meaning to do this for weeks. Ned and I settled in with a glass of wine, some cheese and crackers, and football on TV, so it seems like a good time to catch up. It's been beautiful in Colorado, no real consistent cold weather yet. We planted daffodil bulbs last weekend and tried to get a few more shrubs in the ground this weekend before it freezes.

Congratulations to Lindsay and Jesse! We can't wait to see pictures of Dean. Sounds like he's a big boy. Tiffany and I, and Tiffany's mom Donna, took Kamryn to get pictures taken yesterday. She was a little cranky and not many smiles, but that didn't stop me from ordering a butt load of pictures. She is a cutie!

Here's a quick catch up of what's happening in our family: Brent and Caroline are engaged (you can google her by searching for Caroline Brady at KAKE, her TV station), not sure when the wedding will be. They won't be here for Thanksgiving, but will visit for Christmas before Brent leaves for Japan in Jan. Shaun and his Tiffany will most likely be engaged before Thanksgiving. She is moving to Oklahoma to live with him sometime around Thanksgiving. Meagan is getting all A's in college - her last semester of her AA degree. Not sure when we'll see her again. Kim is finishing her last semester, graduates 19 Dec. Mike, Tiff and Kamryn are all doing well. Ned and I are fine. My knee has been declared done with physical therapy, so technically I'm ready for ski season. Ned is doing some travel, but not unreasonable. We're both taking some time off for Turkey Day week - Dad and Ona are coming out for the week.

Here's a recent picture of Kamryn, and a photo during a Sunday dinner a few weeks ago. The people you probably don't recognize are Ned's sister Debbie, and Shaun's girlfriend Tiffany (wearing white shirt). Brent is the other handsome guy standing behind Mike.

Signing off for now, will be back on soon. Love you all! Laurie

Hello Everyone!!

Hey there all you guys. I just saw the website and after about an hour I finally figured out how to get to it and actually use it (I think). Computers and me are not the best of friends.
Well, I am sitting here as big as humanly possible and just waiting for little devil to come out. I have one more week until they will finally agree to induce me and let me see my feet again.
We are all doing great and Jesse was really happy to finally get to see pictures of my family and he can't wait to be able to meet everyone.
Keara is growing like a weed and learning new words everyday, some that we wished she did not know, like "boobies". I have a feeling that Jesse and I are going to have our hands full with this little girl.
Hope everyone is doing well and I can't wait to see more picutes and here from you all.
Love, Lindsay

I'm a slug, I know

OK, OK, OK....almost as bad as Randy when it comes to the frickin' puter.  I'm on horse and hound duty today. Judy's on day 2 of some 3 day equestrian thingy up in Amherst. I've been bonding w/ Oz & Milo, Savannah and Ella, swabbing the stalls, chucking hay and grain and nasty looking things that all the animals seem to enjoy. I am skipping dinner (yes, I ate all the left-overs for lunch) and sitting and figuring out how to blog tonite. Look out Clamlies!! If I get this thing sent and remember how to get back here.....(I've danced with the devil and his name is Alzheimer).....I'm liable to start spewing.

Getting back together on The Cape was a ball. A dream. A very, very nice thing. Thanks so much to all the Capers for digging and husking, shucking and buttering, hosting and preparing, feeding the whole famn damily. It was inspiring. Way warm and a fantastic reconnect. I don't want to let the next get-together get too far away in the future, OK?

Lindsay just called and has finally resorted to the tried and true labor inducers. "Dean" is due 11/5 but Lins hasn't got enough skin to keep stretching to supply him growing room, so she says. Tonite they did the hot mustard and before he goes to bed....husband Jesse's gonna get lucky ;-) Lindsay says "whatever it takes"....woo hooo.

I'll fire out the announcement w/ pictures as soon as Dean is boots on ground.

(Hope this make sit. It's taken me over an hour to type and spell check. I am a pathetic typist, or keyboarder as they call it today. Keyboard, snowboard, skateboard......I'm old)

See everyone soon....hanging here in Blog-land. Gonna go find a place that can supply some of that "Reverend Horton Heat", torch the fireplace and let Oz play lap dog.

Love to all,
