Miss Rose Turns Eleven

Let me tell you about this Eleven-Year-Old Miss Rose. She is a lovely girl, growing into a wonderful young lady. We are so very proud of her.

Industrious by name and nature, she is never, never idle. She teaches herself how to do many things -- sewing, crafting, drawing, music, cooking, reading, and so much more.

She is generous with her patience towards her little brothers. Hardly ever does she keep a brother out of her proximity -- she allows help from little hands when she doesn't need it; she helps her little brothers in all manners. She always knows just what to do.

Miss Rose is our organizer. She knows the date, time and place for everything.

She's pretty and sweet and oh-so-very intelligent.

We sure do love her.
Happy Birthday, Miss Rose.
Miss Rose would like to thank Aunt Hannah and Uncle Steve for the lovely gift card, with which she purchased a Native American Beading Kit; and she's already taught herself how to bead. Thank you!

Valentine's Surprises

On Valentine's Day, Mamma took a nap. When she got up, Daddy and the kids had made a surprise.

Happy Valentine's Day!

The Newport Aquarium

Saturday we went to the Newport Aquarium in Northern Kentucky.

The day was warm for early February.I have a thing for turtles. I mean, I don't actually want to touch one, feed one, water one, or live with one, but I kind of like them. In a zoo.How about this mammer jammer? A dear family with a teenage Down's Syndrome son was splitting a gut over this lovable face. It is a turtle. Of some kind. Which I can't be bothered looking up.

The fish tunnels were pretty okay. I'd like them better if they had conveyor belts to stand on like AQWA did but that's just because I'm lazy and also it reminded me of the Jetsons, which is always cool. The piranhas just sat, almost motionless, waiting for some hapless prey to climb in. I can see that, if you were to try to cross an infested river, you would have a really hard time seeing these critters, since they don't move.Love, love, love the jelly fish. I can't believe I didn't get a shot of the jellyfish couch in the jellyfish room.Not quite as big as a hammerhead, but getting there.
Totally unrelated photo.

Guess the conversation that happened right before this photo was taken:

(Mamma:) Jr, don't wake the Baby.

(Jr:) mumble mumble.

(Mamma:) Jr, don't go upstairs, you'll wake the Baby.

(Jr:) mumble mumble mumble.


(Jr:) giggle giggle giggle, sproing sproing sproing

(Baby:) giggle giggle giggle, sproing sproing sproing

(Mamma:) Grrrrrrrr!
