Along the way, I spotted the usual stuff…

Nothing Like a Nice, Relaxing Evening of Ultimate Fighting

Fast forward a bit to Stacey and Shane’s new house. We spent most of the night in the living room, watching a sugar-fueled Jasmine play around. Here she is with my cousin Haley. Nesta, one of the nicest doggies in the world. Around now, Andrew, Jordan, and I accompany Shane to go visit the house where all his fish are…

Happy Birthday Jasmine!

My oh-so-cute niece Jasmine turned one today! I can’t believe it’s already been a year since she arrived. Here are all her presents – tons of stuff from uncles, aunts, grandparents and great-grandparents. The birthday cake (I don’t think Jasmine’s really had all that much sugar before today). Jasmine poses with Grandma Mary. Look at all those presents! All during…
