Update with Pictures

My blog feels so empty. We hope to take a family picture this weekend in preparation for Christmas cards. Here are some new pictures.

Hanging out in the basement often involves a lot a jumping rope:
Sometimes two at a time.

Or one by one:
All the boys got a new haircut today and Jerome always cuts their hair. Ricky has been using the gel lately and he didn't want his usual short style. He was trying to describe what he wanted with some "longer hair in the middle". Jerome figured that was a mohawk. Unfortunately, Ricky wasn't that happy with it, but it looks okay. Not my favorite, but his hair grows fast and Jerome can fix it up:

High school can be overwhelming:
Tomorrow our church's children's Bible quiz program has it's first quiz of the year. I am nervous -- I am coaching this year and I have never coached before. The first order of business was to update some dilapidated quiz boxes. Jerome, the master builder, made all the boxes for us. The kids helped me paint on numbers.We ended up with table after table of numbers:

Can't Cry Over Spilled Milk

Well, I did it. I erased my life. I have been setting up a new blog on another site. In deciding what to do, I had set up a second blog on blogspot. Once I decided it would work better on another host, I came to delete the one on blogspot and ... I deleted the family blog while I deleted my secondary blog.

NO, it was not backed up. All my entries and pictures for over a year are gone. In a click. I am sad, but what can I do? My kids loved to scroll through and see their birthdays and such. I still have the pictures of course, backed up on CD's. But the history of this blog is gone, gone.

I will still keep my blog. I will re-set my family picture and update my profile and links list as I have time. The page has turned, only the fresh is here now.

Forgive my blundering, heave a great sigh and let's get back on the road.
