Public Service Announcement:

I haven't made these yet, but I thought that for the greater good of mankind I would go ahead and start disseminating the information.  I think it is valuable.... maybe even life-changing.  Definitely artery-clogging.
In how many languages can you say, "YUM!!!"? (maybe "triple-bypass" as well?)

Groundhogs Can't Count

Dear Mr. Groundhog,

I would like to lodge a formal complaint.  10 weeks ago, your shadow predicted 6 more weeks of winter.  Now, I am aware that in some parts of the world 40 degree daytime temps would be considered swimming weather, but not here.  Not south of the Mason-Dixon.  I saw snowflakes during lunch last week.  SNOW!  I hate to be a nagger, but I hardly think a few 60 degree days sprinkled in make a "Spring". 
 Can you do something about this please?  

And have a word with your shadow, would ya'?

Isaac's Birthday

We started Isaac's birthday off early by all donning mustaches whilst he opened his presents, most of which were Bakugan-related.  He also received some pet frogs and a metal detector.

From that we moved on to Assateague Island.  It's about a 4 hour trip through some beautiful farm land.  The island is famous for its wild ponies but it also has a fabulous beach.  Here's a shot of Ike trying out the new detector.  He found 51 cents.  The coins remarkably resembled some coins which had recently been residing in Todd's pocket, but we won't mention that.
(Yes, that's Todd in a cowboy hat.  The farther we move from Texas the more he reverts.  Go figure.)
On the way home from the island, we stopped for some birthday treats.  Cake Pops, of course!!  Cake mixed with frosting, put on a stick and covered with chocolate candy.  Does it get any better?
It was a great day, good weather, safe journies and fun side-stops.  When I get my hands on someone else's pics from the day, I'll show you some ponies.

Parental Creativity:

Dear Josiah,

This looks like a very fine, $5 tooth to me. I do not have a $5 bill with me tonight, but I will be sure to make a 5 dollar deposit into your parents' bank account in the morning so that they can buy you something nice.

Good Job!
