Celebrity Look Alike!

I have my life Mac back.  With a new hard drive.  The old one?  Still in rehab.

I have a bit of blog updating to do but I had to quickly post a picture I just snapped of Lincoln as I was making breakfast.  First off, I was thrilled to capture his latest, which is walking around with his hands in his pockets.  Stinkin' adorable.

But, what really had me grab the camera quickly, he looked exactly like my brother John at that age.  I did a double take.  And then a triple.

Deja vu!

Blogging Break?

Not really.  I mean, not by my choosing of course.  The hard drive crashed.  Head-on collision style.  Crashed so hard that the guys here at the Apple store couldn't help.  Now that is saying something.  They managed the role of superhero when one of the GLLAM clan used my cd drive as a piggy bank.  True story.

Of course I had all of my photos and music backed up.
1000's of photos dating back to 2005, including the births of more than 1/2 my children.  Positively.  Not.
It was one of those.....I thought he was, he thought I was.....I really don't want to involve you in our stupidity personal matters. 

My oh-so-precious hard drive is on his way to California for a much-needed holiday.  Hopefully he will come back refreshed and rejuvenated.

Happy 10th Birthday, Madeline

I can't believe I have a child old enough to bake and decorate her own birthday cake!

And yes, she colored it with beet juice (why wouldn't she?)

Happy Birthday, Love!  You are the greatest joy.

Apparently coconut oil has uses that I wasn't aware of.

(Thank you GE for making a lock button on the water dispenser)

Lauren pulled off a round off front handspring over 3 of her 4 siblings.  
Or was this just a really creative play time?
