Something must be in the air!!!

Hi Everyone,

Well as far as I can tell something is in the air and its spreading from FL or actually MT to CA to oh yea and Vegas and now it's up here! First about 3 maybe 4 weeks ago (from 1/25/09) one of my best friends in FL tells me her son and his girlfriend are expecting in March! I said "What?!?!?!" and then she said "Oh, didn't I tell you?" Can you tell we hadn't spoken in a while??? Hmmm, yes we have to work on that. Anyway, she is very excited, but very bummed since her son is in MT. Then I hear about the newest addition coming to the Watterlond family in Vegas. Congratulations one and all! I hope the shower went well!

Then my cousin tells me I am going to be a great aunt sometime in either Aug or Sept.! So excited!! I was telling everyone. Started planning what to crochet for her and looking at patterns and yarns. it was all good. Then one week later, just one week! My daughter Samantha calls and tells me that she and her husband are expecting and due Sept 19th! Well I must say it has taken me a while for it to soak in what that really meant. I suddenly felt really old and yet not old enough. Does that make sense? Well, it did to me. Now I am warming up to the idea of becoming a grandma, it's starting to not sound so bad.

Those of you who know or have known my cousin Debbie and I should have realized by now the most humorous part of our daughters both being pregnant at the same time. It seems that all our life Deb and I have always done things either together or very close to each other. We were born with in 8 months of each other. we went to rival high schools in the same town, we became engaged close together and married one month apart. Then had our first babies almost literally together even though we were thousands of miles and many country boarders apart from each other. In fact Amanda was born on my due date and Nick came 17 days later. So if you think about it Deb and I are still doing things together, but now its through our daughters. Deb and I have always been close and even the miles that separate us has never changed that. We have a bond that is indestructible. She more than my cousin, she my best friend and my sister and I can't imagine life with out her in it. Love ya Deb!

So this is my first blog in Feb. Pretty mushy but its February it's supposed to get mushy! Needless to say I have several crocheting projects going on which is not doing my carpal tunnel and favors, but I have til May for one and the other two I have til Sept so I'm not too stressed yet. I do have an appointment to look in to my CT for next week but not planning on really doing anything about it til this summer so I won't miss work. Something to post later when I know whats going on with it, among other things as the develope.

So friends thats it for now. Take Care and God Bless, Pam and Clams

Just for the record...

I guess this might not be considered my first blog. In the past I have done a Yahoo family group page, a myspace page, a facebook page and I have played with others along the line but never got very far with them. At school this year we got a gaggle net account so I am using that too. Just didn't want to be too misleading.

Today I have been uploading pictures onto the Picasa page I created I don't know how long ago, but decided that since no one is going to the family page anymore I might as well post where everyone is at. I haven't figured out how to get to the actual Picasa address yet, but I am working on it. Maybe after I get all the photos up, I can get to the "view my page" section and get it then. Until then, Thanks for stopping by.
Take Care and God Bless,
Pam and Calm

PS... Did you notice my new addition? It reminds me of Mom, she loved fish in fish tanks.

testing this out...

OK so now I'm gonna try to put in some pictures. Oh WOW it worked!! I totally impressed myself here folks. I can't believe I did it. OK, this first one here is the sunrise we watched in Port Townsend waiting for Tommy's ship to come through, but guess what? We missed the ship. It passed through before we got there. Fortunately Catlyn had many photo ops. Let me try to put in some more.

OK, this one she took because she was bored and cold. She didn't want to get out of the car any more so she happened to see the sunrise in the mirror and thought it was a good shot. We think it is one of her most interesting ones. OK, this is another one out of boredom, but still interesting. OK now I'm gonna try to put more than one picture on at a time. Lets see how I do and hopefully I wont delete what I've already done. LOL

Finally after 2 tries and then having to move them to where I wanted them not once but twice! These are some of Cate's nature shots. The first three are just after a nice rain fall.

These next two were after the first frost this year. The first one is frost and the second is ice crystals. She has quite an eye for these things I think. Much better than her ol'mother for sure.

Now here are a few shots of the wedding party for Sammy and Bryon's wedding. We didn't get near the shots I was hoping for, but oh well. So from left to right they are Alesha, Kristin, Sammy, Bryon, Eric, Beau and Alyssa. The ring bearer never came to the reception so we have no pictures of him.

The last two pictures here are of the moon and our Kitty Mikey, who we lost to a sudden and mysterious illness this fall. He was our youngest and we miss him a lot.

Well folks this is it for now. Now let us see if I can get this posted before I loose it again. Yes, I lost it once already. Well, I thought I did. Thankfully it does an automatic save and I only lost part of it, but I did have to redo many of the photos a few times. It looks like I have to build the page from the bottom up when I am adding pictures because they all load up at the top and then they have to be moved to the bottom and then you have to move all the text to where it was in the first place. Lots to learn, but I am trying.

Hello and Welcome to my first blog. I'm completely new to this so if you have any suggestions let me know. I can use all the help I can get. I love reading your blogs and seeing the pictures. I hope to have some new stuff up as soon as I learn how to do it all. I'll likely put on a lot of Cate's photos. She is a marvelous photographer and I like to show off her stuff. Well OK, I guess this is it for now till I can figure it all out. Thanks for stopping by!
