David is feeling somewhat better and changed the oil in the Discovery yesterday.
The cats have been glad to have us around, but are really annoyed by coughing, sneezing, and nose blowing. They're good company though!
We finished the 3rd season of LOST. We never thought we really could do it, but cold weather and being sick kept us couch-bound. We are ready for the premiere of the 4th season on Thursday.

Oh...isn't she the cutest! It's Baby Erin and Dad and Mom in 1976.
Robyn and I at her wedding in October 2006. Robyn was a beautiful bride - of course. I vow never to wear that flowery dress again.
David's Aunt Marilyn, sister Sarah, Aunt Jo, and Grandma Downing. Oh, and Baby David of course! 1970
My name change is official - new SS card came last week. Now the fun of getting it changed on everything that my name is on! :)

This weekend, we continued our LOST marathon. The fourth season begins January 31, and we've committed to watching Todd's DVDs of the first three season in preparation. We are now on the first DVD of the 2nd season. This has been an exceptionally warm January weekend, so on Saturday we headed to the Branson Landing to walk around and then to eat at our favorite Chinese buffet. Today we took Tuley for a walk around the neighborhood and watched more LOST. It was nice to open the windows and let some fresh air in. Since none of these things are really picture worthy, and I find that I prefer a picture to accompany my blog reading, I think I might start through the pictures that were in the slide show for our wedding reception. We'll see how long that lasts, but I hate to disappoint both of the faithful readers by not having any new posts.
The slide show started with this dandy. Another Christmas Vacation group photo. I think it was from 2005. Rob is missing from the picture, but was also dressed as Cousin Eddie in tight white sweater and green or black dickey. I think this picture was taken right before Stobbe (dressed as Mary) tripped on Tuley nearly wiping out the Christmas tree. The shepherd in blue is me and the shepherd to my right is Christina. We're about 7 or 8 I think. The church Christmas program was always directed by a retired 2nd grade teacher named Mrs.Cain. If you were a wise child, you'd wear extra thick sleeves, as Mrs. Cain had a way of moving you around by your wee little skinny arms.
This is one of my favorite pictures of the two of us. It hangs over the fireplace in our bedroom. Hoping this spring will bring a little more kayaking and camping!
