Odd Discovery Under a Bed

We were rearranging some furniture getting ready for some company and we discovered this thing under a bed in one of the spare bedrooms. Anybody know what it is? Is it valuable?

I wonder if I can get some money for it on Ebay?

Bad News for Cannibis Smokers: It Makes You Crazy

I read a news article this morning about recent research that indicates that people who use marijuana have an increased risk of psychosis, particularly if they already have a propensity for mental illness because it runs in their family. I'm not pointing any fingers or making any accusations. I'm just saying if you use cannibis and you know about mental illness in your family, be advised, that's all. Life is hard enough, why make it harder?

Here's a link to the story, if you're interested. http://apnews.myway.com/article/20070726/D8QKIRI00.html

Jacob's Birthday Party & Water Fight

Jacob's birthday party theme was "water park"...
but it soon became "water fight".

Jacob's throwing arm isn't very well developed at age 3.

But his cousin Skyler's got a pretty good arm.

These youngsters may have bitten off more than they could chew when they challenged Uncle Brad with a bucketful of water.

The tables were quickly turned.

They had to run for it.

Jacob's Birthday, 3 Years Old

Jacob was so excited about his birthday presents he started opening them on his own, and we had to scramble to catch up.

He's developed his skill at opening presents, and he doesn't stand on ceremony.


What, more goggles?!!

Hey, look! Toy money!

Or is it toy money?

Happy Birthday to me!

Jodi decorated the cake, and Jake "helped".

Jake's face lit up when everyone started singing "Happy Birthday".

Take a deep breath...

and blow it out!
