Frame a Day '12: Week 19: 5/6-12

May 6--A Thomas Birthday Party--When our kids hit age 4, we start with the friend birthday parties.  Today was Imp's turn to reach that milestone.  We had a Thomas-themed party, much like we did for Earnest's first friend party.  It's hard to believe the "baby" is four years old.

 May 7--Against All Odds--Our 2008 Honda Odyssey, which we've had for four years and 2 weeks, just hit this eerie milestone today while I was driving.  Know what's odder?  Our 2005 Honda CRV hit 88,888 a few hours earlier, also while I was driving.  What are the chances of hitting both of these notable "mile"stones on the same day, by the same driver?

 May 8--Prettifying Our House--Some new flowers for our flower boxes.

May 9--This Land is Your Land--...this land is my land, and our land.  Heck, it's everybody's.  On Sunday, an Eagle Scout volunteered to paint a map of the United States on the school playground as part of his service project.  Volunteers were recruited to help with the project.  We went to help and painted New York, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, North Carolina, Louisiana and Alabama.  We went back today to get pictures of us and the finished product.

 May 10--Birthday Goodies-- Among the many presents Imp received for his fourth birthday today was a homemade Thomas the Train book from Trust.  It was entitled "Thomas and the Gray Monster".  Imp seemed to enjoy this custom book.  Happy birthday to Imp!

I think I also want to edit out the clothesline running through Trust's head before I use this photo in my 2012 photobook.

 May 11--Cranking it Up--Imp received a deluxe sort of pail and shovel for the sandbox, complete with a sand mill and truck to cart the poured sand away to the construction site.

May 12--I Dream of Jeannies--Today was the annual ice show for Trust.  The theme for this year's show was classic TV themes, and Trust's group skated to a medley from Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie and I Love Lucy. Trust  was especially thrilled this year because two of her friends were in this routine with her.


  1. Looks like a great week. That last one is so cool. beautiful shots.

  2. How cool- love the ice show!!! One of my best friends in HS was an ice skater- fond memories of spending time with her at the rink.

  3. Looks like a fun birthday party and what a cute cake! I love kid's cakes. Super fun ice show too.
