Out like a Lion?

The girls ventured out long enough to get wet and cold and make this snow guy. Fun!

Last Day of Winter

It was 86 degrees today and the girls just had to cool down in the sprinkler. They lasted about five minutes before realizing the water is still 55 degrees.

28 o'years!

Happy Anniversary Pedro! Still happy after all these years!
Love BJ

Lop off a tree when the sap is rising on a 70 degree day and this is the result as the temps go below freezing overnight.

Raising funds for Big Brothers/Big Sisters

Hi folks,

I'm participating in the Tulsa Library fundraiser for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Tulsa County. BBBS has been around since 1977 and provides one-on-one mentoring for kids who may not have a positive adult role model in their lives. This provides a consistent relationship that helps them do better in school and grow into confident young adults.

Now, I know you may have already bought Girl Scout Cookies, and although BBBS is a great cause, I feel weird asking for pledges without having anything to offer in return. And so, if you can make a donation, I hereby promise to make you 1. a generous box of truly decadent cookies or 2. the pie of your dreams. I can make it sugar-, gluten-, or dairy-free if that's your bag. Or if you just don't like dessert, I'll make you something else.

I can take pledges the (sort of) old-fashioned way via email (, or at this link:

Thanks for considering. ~ Cara

Call to action

Despite his best efforts, Alex is set to graduate. Mom and I are creating a little DVD for him and we need your help. Get together your best (or worst) pics, vids or thoughts about this crazy kid and send them to me (or we can pickup.) If there are any questions let me know and thanks beforehand.  DG
