Another Missed Post...

Dear Readers,

Yes, I have once again missed my usual Friday posting date and have heard from several of you about just that event.  Here are the lame excuses.

First, unlike all the women in my family, I have NOT been reading the book shown above.  As far as I have been able to figure out, Stephanie Meyer is a female astronomer whose first three books (Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse) concerned her educational love of the universe and how celestial things work.  Then, for reasons unknown to me, she altered her book style on the heavens to write her latest, Breaking Down, which apparently deals with either automotive problems or is her attempt to enter the world of psychiatry in which her credentials are suspect.

In either case, she once again has tried to cause all productivity to cease in my home  as shown below.  However, Ms. Meyer has failed this time because her book was released just in time for the Huge, Unscheduled, Best -Ever, Carlson Family Reunion!  Well, most of the Reunion was previously scheduled, but parts were not scheduled until the last possible minute...  This is an inside joke.

At any rate, we had all the kids in one place at one time for the first time in years!  And, when the Reunion ended at Hershey Park in Pennsylvania, we managed to get this picture of most of the grandkids and the proud Papa and Granny.

High Ground, indeed!

Family reunions are so much fun. I love the picture of Mindy and Sam reading Breaking Dawn.

When are you going to read Breaking Dawn? Don't make me enforce a deadline!

How dare you defile the cover of a much beloved book! Ugg, I feel like I should've given you permission to show the world the bottom of my dirty feet! Love that red head though, and you too!

I'm hearing rumors of a full round of golf...got any pictures? That indeed deserves a round of applause!

Grandkids really are the ultimate payback for putting up with your children all those years, aren't they?
