Dude....100 posts??

I've just noticed that this is my 100th post, according to Blogger. That doesn't seem right. Anyway, here are some pictures of the girls showing some love to PaPa's front yard spectacular. It's very exciting to see them so much more aware of the Christmas goodies around them this year.

Good Luck With That

The Rumor Mill says that Oakland is looking at Bonds as a potential replacement for their outgoing DH, Frank Thomas. It's no secret that Bonds has fallen out of favor with most Giants fans, including this one. He cheated. He lied. And isn't it interesting that, now that he's up for free-agency, he got his surgery right after season's end? Why, he usually saves that kind of stuff for Spring Training! So yeah......good luck with that. The sign was, of course, a play on words--back when Barry was our power. Irony. It's no longer Pac Bell Park, and my legs don't look as good in shorts anymore.

Veteran's Day

Take some time today to honor those who have served our country. My dear dad, Uncle Walt, Uncle Ken, Uncle Bill, Uncle John, and Uncle Roger are all war veterans who stood up to fight for our freedoms. Thank them all today. They did it for us.

Happy Birthday "PaPa!"

I have an awesome dad. No, seriously, I have an AWESOME dad. He's that dad that always seems to be there, looking after you AND your friends, AND their friends. My friends all gush about my dad. And they're so right. Now take how much he looks after us and multiply it by 100. That's how much he dotes on these babies. Every time we roll up in our stroller or van, they start saying "PaPaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah." They even recognize his unmarked police car. They love him. Happy Birthday Dad/Price/Coach Price/Louie/Uncle Louie/Lou-San/PaPa!

More Monkey Madness

Here are some more pics from Papa's camera. We scored our first KitKat's from Aunt Vera and Uncle Walt.
