My dad loves the EARTH so he is doing his part by recycling his old cans into wind chimes. It is the Oklahoma thing to do.
Eva and Caleb couldn't be bothered to come inside the house to play. They spent most of the afternoon in Goldsby on the trampoline.
We got them to stop jumping long enough to open some of those champagne poppers.
I also lured them away from the trampoline by taking them and my brothers (Sam and Joe) on a ride in my grandpa's "car". We went up and down the street. We usually take it back behind the barns but it was too muddy for me to risk it.
My dad loves ugly dogs. I don't have pictures of all of his ugly dogs but he got a new puppy. They found it and it was all messed up and had maggots all over it. It is now doing just fine and looks an awful lot like my old dog, Doug. Eva certainly loves animals. Everyone is trying to convince me to get her a dog but I'm not even close to succumbing to the pressure. I don't need another poop machine around here. I've got enough on my plate for now, thank you very much.
We spent the last bit of the time in Goldsby packing up the boys for their stay here with us in Nebraska. Sam is having a lot of fun. He lost a tooth tonight during our 07/07/07 party (FUN FUN FUN!). It was pretty gross. Joe is having fun, too but really misses home. He has cried a couple of times and I feel bad for him. I was warned that this would happen. He loves his mama and dad. It is so sweet. We're going to spend the day at church tomorrow and then try and go out to the Omaha Zoo on Monday...maybe Tuesday. They only have a few days left to experience Nebraska. So far they've seen A LOT of corn.
