Obviously, my week has been busy.  That’s why I haven’t updated.  I’ve been working on the band web page, too.  You can check that out if you want… www.siegelband.org  I’ve been working with flash, and that’s been fun and tedious. 

Monday was a fun day and night.  The day was full of friends of Chip’s hanging out in the driveway and back yard shooting each other, along with a couple who washed the Xterra out of the kindness of their hearts.  They all stayed for dinner (they pitched in for pizzas) and watched movies.  It was really a great day!

Brittany…armed and dangerous!!!                                Chelsey has her safety glasses ready….    Parker got shot 5 times in the chin just because I asked him to stop and let me take his picture.  Ouch!!!
Andrew is always shooting someone………..Emily and Carrie—no shooting, just manning home base….Erin and Chelsey, always on guard.


Annie, 16 and so beautiful and so sweet!!!       Amanda joined in the fun, but she didn’t want to pose alone.  Woa!  Chelsey has moved up to a big gun!

And then there is the car wash crew…Carrie and Emily.  You girls are the best.  Don’t you love Chip and Parker’s swim trunks? 
It was a great day!!!

I’ve run some cable under the house, and I still need to go back under and finish running speaker wire.  I’ve dug new holes for my bird feeders and put some mulch around them.  Yes, it’s been a busy week.  But it’s all good!
