11 on 11 of June '11

1. Ray  I like 11s, I like Alaska, I like Redsox (especially lucky Redsox hats that have been baptized in the Charles River and christened with fish blood), I like big fish, and I like to catch big fish. I also like to come home to my little pregnant wife and smooch.   The best days are when you get all this within 24 hours. It must have been the eleventh again - a great day!!

2. Cali  Today I was preoccupied with this abdomen.  It spent part of the day contracting.  I told it to "be still" because I'm not quite ready for a baby yet.  Ray needs to get back from Alaska .  I need to finish the baby quilt.  We need to finish remodeling the basement.  Ray needs to finish up some stuff at work.  I need to go BIG grocery shopping.  We need to at least talk about what to name it.  Happy 11 on 11.

3 & 4. Abe  Dancing at friends, Ryan and Emily's, wedding.

5.  Grace  Did Emily's hair for their wedding this morning.

6. Ty  Enjoying not having to say "goodnight" any more.  (Actually Ty is pestering Michelle who just woke up from a nap.)

7. Michelle  Playing a game we borrowed from Ande and Joe. 

8. Joe  Costco. They get you every time!

9. Ande  Joe gave me a bucket full of peonies from the wholesale florist. A bucket full!!!

10. Calvin  Weeding the potatoes.

11. Jane  Life doesn't get much better.

Love this! Sorry to have missed so much while I took my class. Your garden looks like Eden and all your loved ones - just heavenly!

Cali said...

Eden is how I would describe your garden as well. Except it can't be Eden because it is making me break commandments... Ray and I are coveting it. Ray and I also both commented about the OBVIOUS love between you and Dan. That is one sweet little dog/protector you've got there.

I always enjoy your blog Jane. It is educational, informative, newsy, fun, funny and memorable. What a family...the best. Our June 11th was our 51st anniversary. I too love the number eleven. It seems like I see the numbers 11:11 posted on our digital clock again and again that it is beyond coincidence, but seems like a message from the "other side." I always think of my wonderful grandmother when it happens. I like how the high school had their graduation on June 11th, the eleventh year (2011) and held it at the 11th hour. Next year must mean June 12th, 2012 at 12:00 noon!!
Thanks for sharing your life with are so remarkable.

Not having to say goodnight is the best part of being married!

Beautiful hair that Grace did. I wish I could do that.

I am coveting your garden, too. Big time.

What kind of fish did Ray catch?

Ande Payne said...

I look forward to the 11th every month! Thank you! That picture of you and Dan is pretty sweet.

What a great simple post! Love it!

Kathy said...

You deserve to sit down and read a book!

Lynn said...

I read that Mark Twain book...I must tell you about Joan of Arc someday and her role in the restoration of the Gospel!

If Cali isn't ready for the baby then it's SURE to come.

I'm always happy that your family plays along on the 11th!
