Last weekend I took Brianna and Bridgette to meet Brielle; to say they (especially Brianna) were enchanted with their newest cousin would be an understatement:
Today Alex came by for lunch and we had a Skype visit with Beth and the girls on my new computer, which was terrific! I want to set up regular Skype sessions with them and the Kloesels and Jonathan so we can keep in touch better. If only Skype permitted video conferencing, it'd be perfect. Oh well! Someday, I daresay.
The reason Alex is in Fort Worth is for his Air National Guard band duty, and today's his first opportunity to wear his brand new Air Force uniform. As his mama, I think he's quite handsome in it:
While he was here Joe came by with Max and Lucy, the big black lab he kindly took in last week:
Poor Pebbles, Terry's poodle, was dying to be allowed to come in and roughhouse with the other dogs, but Terry sensibly refused. ;^) Unfortunately, it looks as if Lucy will have to go to the Humane Society to find a home, as she's too big for the apartment Joe's moving into next week (45 lb limit).
Jessica began her new job as server at the Hoffbrau House on 377 yesterday, and had a great time! She's enjoying getting back in the saddle, so to speak.
