Odds and Ends

Ok, one last post to kind of catch everything up here for a while….;)

These are just some odd and end pictures that we thought might amuse or interest our dear family and friends. We love you guys, by the way!!!!

The day after Kayla’s wedding my dear husband kept his tuxedo and took me for a wonderful and romantic evening for two! We started out with a moonlit walk along the edge of Lake Ponchatrain, and ended up with a wonderful dinner at the nicest restaraunt in town! Is he great or what?!?!?! Almost makes you green too, huh? ;)
The happy couple!

Here is our adorable nephew Jason with his father…and no, he isn’t really feeding that boy chicken nuggets. He IS really watching TV though. His parents fondly refer to him as a “couch french fry” because he isn’t big enough to be a couch potato . . . yet.
Jason and Jason...what a duo!

This is Betsy. Betsy is our neighborhood peahen (the female version of a peacock). She is really the best pet in the world since all we have to do for her daily survival is be sure not to run over her as we back out of the driveway. So far, so good!

Our final picture is of the two of us with little William Carpenter. He loves Aaron and thinks it is the neatest thing in the world that Aaron’s middle name is William and that’s HIS name. If he was an orphan I’m sure we would have already adopted him. One day Aaron was standing outside of the van where William’s little brother, Louis, was already buckled into his car seat and they were making faces and laughing at each other through the window. I (Laura) was standing by, watching and being generally amused when I heard a little girl from church say, “Man, when Aaron has kids, he is going to be their favorite person in the whole world!!” :) I think so too!!! ;)
