"Fauxhawk" becomes "Beauhawk"


They're engaged!

(I totally stole this pic from Noss's blog, where you can go to read all about it.)

That's all. Just wanted to share.

I worry. About zombies. Now they're in Austin. JC, Corinn, and the grandies live in Austin. Oh, no! What're we gonna do? Don't believe me? Look!

And here is the report on TV:

Oh, uh.... never mind.

I made a hat. 'Cause Noss has a boyfriend. And 'cause said boyfriend has a fauxhawk. I'm callin' him Hawk.

Witness the fauxhawk:

Witness Hawk's new mohawk hat covering the fauxhawk:

Noss has had her own hat moments. Observe:

Don't they make a great couple?

Wait! Here's the great couple!
Awwwwww! Noss & Hawk!

Guess Who Came For Dinner

Juniper! Well, she actually got to stay a couple of nights with us - yay!

We had pizza. June is allergic to milk - causes her digestive problems big time. So I found a great recipe for milk-free pizza dough. But it's not missing a thing - PopPop and I love it and make pizza from it even when June's not here!

Here's a pic of her own little pizza, sans cheese, of course:
And this is how you cool your pizza so you can eat it (thanks for the help, PopPop):
And this is our "YUM!" face:And PopPop and Mimi get a pizza, too - with cheese:Here's the recipe - from Recipezarr - it's made in the bread machine - yay!



  1. Add lukewarm water and oil to mixing pan. Add flour, sugar, italian seasoning and salt to the pan. Tap pan to settle dry ingredients, then push some ingredients to the corner. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients; add yeast. Lock pan into breadmaker. Program breadmaker for the dough cycle. When done, remove dough from the pan and place on a floured surface. Knead for 1 minute the let dough rest for 15 minutes.
  2. Roll dough out to fit your pizza pan. Place on greased pan. Top as desired and bake in a 425 degree oven for 10 - 15 minutes or until nicely browned.
For the sauce, we just use a small can of tomato sauce blended with Italian seasoning, onion flakes and garlic powder. (we don't like a sweet pizza sauce) Another tip - have your rack kinda low in the oven and use a generous amount of oil on the pan - makes for a crispy bottom on the crust - yum.

So sorry for not posting for so long. I've been writing this post in my head for quite some time, but having a very hard time putting it together.

Brandy and Jon had a beautiful baby girl, Casey Hope, on November 20. There were problems with the birth, and Casey was only with us for three days. Brandy and Jon, through their grief, sought a way for Casey's life to make a difference. Casey's heart valves, all four of them, were made available to other babies.

This is the organization that helped Casey make a difference:
They also make quilts from quilt blocks donated by family members.

This post is so very inadequate, but I can't find a way to express the thoughts and feelings this has left us with. Empty arms, broken heart, un ending tears and heartache, nothing explains it. But knowing other families have had different outcomes because of Casey's precious gift brings some measure of comfort.
