I didn't realize other people could put pictures on here. This could be a lot of fun. I thought your friends might like to see you in your pre-suave days, Abraham, just so they can appreciate how far you've come. And I figure, what the heck, it's too late for Rachel to change her mind now.
All my love, Mom S

At work today, my friends Shaylee and Meagan introduced me to this important and little-studied art. I'm still trying to understand it myself, so I won't say much more, but I will recommend that you visit www.monpa.com/index.html to learn more.

Isn't this such a cute picture of Rachel and Abe? This was taken at Richard's and my wedding about four months ago. We just got our pictures on CD from our photographer yesterday. We had to threaten to take her first born child to get her to send us our pics. But I guess you've just got to do what you've got to do. - Holly

Our big news is that we own a stuffed basketball that looks as lot like a pregnant belly when shoved into one's overalls. But doesn't Abe look cute and protective? Also important to note in this picture are, from left to right, the book "Leaping" by Brian Doyle, which I recommend to everyone; and BahBah, my darling water bottle who, like Loriann's dog Oscar, goes with me everywhere. Abraham is very jealous of BahBah. In fact, one day he "accidentally" elbowed him off the kitchen counter and "accidentally" kicked him down the hall. That's when I decided that I could never leave Abraham home alone with my water bottle. It's a shame when you can't trust your own husband like that.
This is our firstborn son, Herb. Thinking about it, though, I wonder if the phrase "firstborn" might be a bit inappropriate, considering that he was actually adopted from Home Depot. So this is our firstadopted son. Herbie is a sixteen-month-old cactus, and is currently not as healthy as he looks in this picture. When we first got him, he grew and grew and grew. Then he stopped growing and got shorter and fatter. Then he morphed back into a ball, but a smaller ball, and of a less-than-healthy-looking green hue. We give him a good watering every other week and keep him in sunlight with some other plant friends. I can't figure out where we've gone wrong. To rephrase Jacob 5, "What more could we have done for my cactus?" We're hoping he'll pull through it. If anyone has any suggestions, let us know.
