House Update

I haven't posted any pictures of the house for you to see the shack we are living in now. It seems things are moving along quite well until I look at these pictures and then wonder.... why did we do this?

Because the windows were rotten, the shingles were shot, the siding wouldn't match up because some of the windows are going to be different sizes.... that's why

South side of house with far left window replaced

North side with one window replaced

And a close up of my red windows. John says the ZoE glass and the red frame with the sun shining on them makes the glass look red, I don't see it but remember he is color blind.

The Sisters together again

Sisters are so much fun. We were all together for Adam's confirmation so we decided to have our picture taken. We have a hard time being serious for a nice picture... as you can tell.

Of course Dad had to get in the picture, he was missing the fun.

And our favorite picture.

Look at all those Lea fingers and hands... we all have them.

It was about 6 years ago I had to make a video at work and perform the job while someone filmed it. Later I watched the video and ended up in tears. I'm not sure how my mothers hands got in that video but they were there. The conference room full of people watching that video for the first time with me didn't know what my problem was.

I think DiAnn is the only one who polishes her nails like Mom always did. Mom couldn't go anywhere without her nails polished and her lipstick on.... hair in curlers, dirty clothes didn't matter as long as the nails and lips were taken care of. She carried a wood box back and forth from the bar and there was always her fingernail kit in there and when the last customer walked out she was painting, filing, cuticle digging.... until the next one walked in.
