A rough storm came up one night and left a sandy beach strewn with starfish. The next morning, a child walked along the shore, stopping every few feet to pick up a starfish and flinging it out into the sea. An old man watched the child and finally shouted at him, "Why bother, son? There's too many starfish to make a difference!". With that, the boy picked up another starfish and looked at it intently before heaving out into the sea. He then turned to the old man and said...

"It Makes A Difference To This One"...

A Relaxing Weekend...

Hello all!

We have enjoyed a nice weekend and are very happy to say good riddance to February and all of its snow and ice! My mom, "Grandma Ruth", came for a visit and we had lots of fun. Mom makes jewelry, and she and Makenna enjoyed some quality time with Grandma's beads. Makenna received some beading kits for Christmas, and as I don't have the time or the inclination to string beads (although I love getting the bracelets!) we got them out and they had fun with those, too. We all enjoyed having Chinese take-out last night and went out for Mexican for lunch today. We even had time for a little shopping! The kids revel in the unconditional love they get from their grandparents on both sides, with no discipline attached!

Now everyone is tired and tomorrow we go back to the grind... Brody has a doctor's appointment, Makenna has speech therapy, I have a hair appointment, and Bernie has to work! Right now, Bernie is rocking Brody to sleep and Makenna is playing with some marbles that her Grandma Alice gave her that were Bernie's when he was little. Pretty soon we'll gather up the marbles that will surely be all over the living room and we'll all hit the hay.

Nite-nite!!! Monica

Nice and clean (for now!)

What a cheesy smile!

Brody is ready for his close-up

This little bee goes outside when the weather warms up!

Cleaning the jello out of Brody's hair. Makenna would never let me do this!

He's so trusting and very cooperative!!!
