too close for comfort!

it all began w/ a phone call from my friend, syalynne, in Colorado Springs...she called to let me know that there was a tornado in Greeley & Windsor...where my parents & family live...
i immediately started calling my sisters, mom, dad, buck's family & my cousin lisa...her mom lives in windsor where the bulk of the damage is. so scary! the only one of my sisters that i couldn't reach was crystal...turns out she left one of the devastated buildings in greeley just before the tornado took its roof off! so scary!

this is an ...
amazing slide show... the 5th photo is directly behind where i managed a video store in college!

a photo of mother's day...

the princess of the house...many times she believes she's the QUEEN!

jordan playing soccer on mother's day...
finally figured out how to catch her in action on the field w/o blurring photos...she had so many attempts at goals that day but never made that ball into the net...

Those are really scary pictures! And your layouts are wonderful. As for AI, I had a tween girl here who was heartbroken that Little David didn't!
