Danielle meets Dylan

Our friends Val and Tim Loomer brought their 6-month old baby boy Dylan to Threadgill's to meet with friends and family, after just moving from San Diego to Florida. Danielle locked in on the cutie.

I told her to stay away from those younger men... could be trouble. For Daddy! :-P

Home sweet home

The house is coming along. The plumbing is in, and the problem trees have been cleared.

It's not much to look at now, but it's a lot more interesting than an empty lot, which is what we had two weeks ago.

Driving by today, I actually could envision us in the house, which was cool. It made the money we're spending seem like it's for something tangible, and something I really want.

My buyer's remorse is finally waning... yea!

Mother's Day 2008

I'm blessed to have so many great "Moms" in my life: Mary, Barabara Miller, India Chumney, Nancy Strane, and Janie Bucek. Sadly, I still haven't mastered the trick of being four places at once (especially when you're nowhere at all), so we have to pick just one place each year.

We spent this Mom's Day in San Antonio with my stepmom India Chumney, and brother William and sister Elizabeth DeMarigny.

It was a great reunion. We hadn't seen Willie in ages, and he just returned from several weeks in London and Paris. One of these days, we'll have to take a trip there together and compare notes!

Lizzie looked great, very New York chic, as she prepared for her finals, and life as a college student at her Mom's alma matter- UT Austin. We're happy that Lizzie will be close to us, and hope to see more of her, but we're not counting on it! (Hey, we do remember college life- we're not THAT old!)

Danielle made another boyfriend, 18 month-old Andrew, I think his name was. Gawd, I'm in trouble. I knew it started early these days, but this is ridiculous!!!

And it was great to see India again, of course. Danielle was happy to be reunited with her Cita.

They just got cozy, and then it was time for us to be on the road again (boo!). On the bright side, we did get to see the second half of the Spurs game versus the Hornets (series tied, 2-2). Yea!!!

We also got to talk to our other Moms- Barbara (my mom), Janie (Mary's mom), and Nancy (my Godmother). We love them all, and feel blessed to have them all in our lives, and in Danielle's life.

Now, if I can only master that four places at once trick...
