Mein Haus ~ Et... Siete Mas

Family at The Magnolia Pancake Haus ~ summer 2008
We were in San Antonio and I "googled" best places to eat in SA. We ate breakfast here 3 mornings in a row. One Fine Man got blueberry pancakes, Guitar Girl got buckwheat pancakes. TechSon got oatmeal cookie pancakes, SkateBoy got French Toast...and I got bacon pancakes and convinced One Fine Man to trade one of his for one of mine because savory and sweet are the PERFECT combination.

Caught in the rain while grillin' for TechSon's birthday party (3 yrs ago)

My son...in a wig...the wig that we have all worn around here...yeah, we do stuff like that. The soul patch is his. I won't be sporting one of those. I hope.
A cheese stick...

In receiving this, I am to tell 7 things about myself. I'll try to think of 7 things I haven't already blogged.
Thank you for the award, Mindy. Find Mindy blogging here.
* I sometimes read the dictionary for... fun? (I get distracted by so many etymologies.)
* The "sounds" of the FoodNetwork are soothing. (The "sounds" distract me from the runaway horses in my head. See? I just thought of Gunsmoke. Oh...Miss Kittie.)
* When a person's gestures don't match his words, it's distracting.
* My handwriting keeps me from writing by hand. It distracts me.
* Sometimes when I tell a story (talking), I get distracted by my own details. Writing is better.
* I like to write really silly short "poems." It's a fun distraction.
* I wrote two silly poems for Andrew (about Ted) to distract him from being in a bad place.
I am passing the award along to the beautiful Quirky Girl .

We have a teddy and a mickey here. Congratulations on your blog award. You are such an inspiration to everyone. Your faith and love for God keeps me going on days when it has been very rough here...
    Love and hugs....Jerelene

  7. Bandit would be envious of Ted. Today while I stepped into the garage for a minute he ate my turkey sandwich. Boy did he look guilty when I came back inside. So glad you captured this moment with Audra, Ted, and Andrew. Looks like it was a fun time. B

  8. Great pictures! Blessings, hugs, and prayers, andrea
