Picture time

Important costume note: the red dress I'm wearing is really Mommy's hand-sewn Christmas dress that Grandma made for her when she was my age.

My guitar face needs a little work, but my ax sure is red hot.

Daddy's little helper

I was more than eager to help dad put the Christmas tree in its stand today. That means there will be a tree in the house with all sorts of ornaments and things for me to try and pull off. It's going to be a very, merry Christmas!

Family Tradition

Dad's Uncle Alvin and Aunt Donna watch me play the organ at their home in Nebraska today.
It sure was fun to spend a couple of days with the New family. The picture on the wall is the wedding portrait of my great-great grandparents, Henry and Julia New. They were married in Hanover, Kansas in 1913. The violin on the wall belonged to my great-grandpa Alvin, who played in a band with his siblings when they were kids, playing dances in rural South Dakota during the 1930's.

Having said all that, sit back and watch this rockin' organ solo. As Ferris Bueller would say... "Never had one lesson!"

Taste testing

After Thanksgiving dinner, I helped Kelsey and the rest of the New family hang the Christmas lights. It's starting to taste a lot like Christmas.

Sleeping Beauty

Seems all I want to do lately is snooze. Growing sure is hard work.

Climbing Mount Everett

At first the piano was my instrument of music. Now all I want to do is climb to the top.

Lunch with friends

I enjoyed lunch with Tom and Jeannie. In college Tom taught Mommy how to write well, and he was KU's version of Wichita State's Les.

Solo snacktime

It makes sense that if I can get my own breakfast, I should be able to swing a snack.

A trip to the Valley (Center)

Nancy is smiling because Mommy and I came to her house for a visit. Nothing helps hurting hearts like a cheery baby girl.

Changing seasons

The fall colors are beautiful right now and that can only mean snow is just around the corner.

Don't fence me in

Chain-link fence does have advantages. It keeps pesky neighborhood dogs out and cute babies safe inside.

What's up Doc?

Dr. Bradley sure looks different when he's not wearing hospital scrubs and a mask.

Highlight of the day

Getting picked up from daycare is my favorite part of the day. I'm pretty sure it's Dad's favorite part, too.

The big read

Either the books have gotten smaller, or I've gotten bigger.

Hanging with Ms. Scarecrow

I love the bluejeans on this scarecrow. Those pants look like they're the right size for me, too.

Grandma snapped this pic of me and Grandpa playing outside today. What am I supposed to do? Throw the ball?

Enjoying the Great Outdoors

No shortage of things to do on a blustery fall day. A little game of Duck, Duck, Goose and all kinds of colorful leaves to pick up.

Have Passport - Will Travel

It took less than two weeks to get my passport. Now that I have it, I'm going to travel the world. I think I'll start with the backyard.

Where's my nose?

I can't show you where my nose is but finding Mommy's nose is never a problem.

Would you like a meltdown with that?

Cheese wasn't the only thing melting down during lunch today.

Gimme gimme gimme

If Mommy is holding something that I want, the best way to get her attention is to pull on her pant leg and wave my hand in the air. Works every time.
