Happy Halloween!!

Richard and Lauren and I carved pumpkins last night. We used a combination of patterns and free designs, and even experimented with sculpting. It was a lot of fun.
I may be a little biased, but I think Richard's jack-o-lantern is the cutest, sweetest ever!

He carved his kitty's name in the side, Ra.
We weren't sure how Lauren's would turn out, just because it has some really small thin parts. It is great though! He is so cute!

Lauren carved her initials in the side...

and a smiley on the other side.

And then there is my crazy one.

Too big? Puleeze!

Richard's aunt Alison got him this chair when he was just a little thing, 3 or 4 years old. He loved it, but a few years ago it somehow (Tim???) found its way into the garage. We found it recently while looking for something else. Mom wanted me to donate it because Richard is "too big" for it. But you know what a packrat I am, I couldn't get rid of it, so we brought it to our newish house. Now it is again Richard's favorite chair, it is his gaming chair and he thinks it is a perfect fit!

ZZ Top

Richard's tribute to ZZ Top.


Here is a picture of some Trinitite in Richard's hand.

Cancer, Football, Mexico, Black Dog

I really don't like not having internet access at home. We have done tons of things lately but I just haven't found time to get to the computer at mom's house to post them.

Richard and I went to an Aggie football game with my nephew and his grandpa. It was a lot of fun, even though NMSU lost. The university was raising money for breast cancer research, and the whole stadium was wearing pink, it was kind of a crazy sight. That is Richard in the picture, with his 18-year old cousin next to him, both in their pink shirts.

We went to Trinity Site last weekend. We joked that we got radiated in sympathy for relatives that have cancer.

Mom and Alison left for Mexico today. They should have a good time. Tim and mom always went together, so this should be an emotional trip. I imagine that there will be lots of toasting him with Tequila Rose on the beach.

Black Dog is doing much better. She has gained back the 15 pounds that she lost while she was sick. I was sure that she had reached her end, she is 14ish, but she is back to her old happy self again!
