SURPRISE!!!!! Happy Birthday Annie!!

Tonight we surprised our very good friend Ann Johnson tonight for her 30th birthday!! We held this monumental event at the good ole Corner Bar!! Ann has a bit of a Justin Timberlake obsession, so he was the centerpiece of her cake! Ann's husband Chip (in the red shirt) made copies of her worst school age pictures for our laughing pleasure, and we had tons of fun with them (Ann didn't think they were so funny!).
I'll let the pics do the talking here...happy b-day Ann!! WE LOVE YOU!!!

Dinner Theater!

On Thursday night, Austin and I tagged along with Austin's mom to see Brogan sing in this years Dinner Theater! The theme was Elton John and Billy Joel. It was fabulous! We could hear Brogan's beautiful and powerful voice from the balcony! The bottom pic is of VERY good family friends Dan and Carol Baker, along with the star himself and Mom Bibler. The middle pics are of Austin, Brogan and I, and finally, Brogan and Mom Bibler! Thanks for the entertainment, Brogan! You did AWESOME!

Thank you, B93 Radio Station!

Not the Brightest Crayon in the Box...

That's right, as much as I love my Hooney-Rooney-Bear, he is sometimes just plain stupid. Here he is, sitting in the only dirt hole in our yard. He had a half of an acre of warm, fresh, green grass to sit in, but he chose the dirt hole. Austin and I are so proud of our dumb-dumb!

It May Not Look Like Much, But...

This little compact means the WORLD to the Bibler family! This belonged to Aunt Cleo (Mr. Bibler's aunt, Austin's great aunt). At Eric and Michelle's wedding, Aunt Cleo gave this to Mom Bibler, who in turn vowed to pass it on to the first Bibler grandchild. It is a compact that was put in a fussy Charlie Bibler's mouth when he was 2 years old to quiet him up! Take a close look...the teeth marks are Mr. Biblers! This little compact made our day that much brighter on Saturday! Mom Bibler and I were also remarking on how much the dog looks like Samson, one of (if not) Mr. Bibler's favorite dogs! Thanks so much, Aunt Cleo!

Congrats Eric and Michelle Trinidad!!

We ventured to Portland, Indiana on Saturday for a wedding on the Bibler side of the family! Austin's cousin Eric got married to his beautiful bride Michelle. It was so much fun and so nice to see that side of the family!! Here are many pics to sum up the fun day! Congrats, Eric and Michelle! Thank you for including us in your very special day!

I Love My Girls (and little nephew!)!!

I don't get too many of these, so when I get 'em, I love 'em! On Friday night, Kerry, Marissa and I had a girl's night at Marissa's house. Kerry had an extremely rough week with an unfortunate miscarriage, and Marissa and I were there to cheer her up as best as we could! Owen played w/ us for a while before tuckering out early. We had a few adult beverages (don't worry...Marissa only had a couple in case little Owen woke up!) And we just talked....and talked...and talked...and enjoyed each others company WELL into the wee hours of the morning! Thanks you both!!

Showing Off

I just wanted to show off one of my recently "renovated" photos! This is all of the Hosford ladies in Gulf Shores a couple of weeks ago. I found a new photo program that I am having waaaaayyyyyy too much fun with!

A Lazy Day the Gertie Way

Life is so tough for her, can't you tell? This is our less slobbery furkid Gertrude, AKA Gertie. This is what she is doing 8 times out of 10! The other times she is eating or filling up her litter box.

Life is So Tough For a Bibler Boxer...

The picture will do the talking!

Gracie, Gracie, Gracie!

Tonight we had dinner at Mom and Dad Hosfords to celebrate Tracey's 26th Birthday! Happy b-day again, Tracey! I got a chance to get some shots of Gracie before she got the "stomach gurgles", making her not a happy girl (she's having potty problems!). And one shot after, when she fell into a dead sleep in Tracey's arms! Here are the pics of our very beloved niece, Gracelyn! Most of them are with "GG", Great-Grandma Snellink. She got to show us how much of a big girl she was in her chair! We love you so much, Gracie! Hope you finally went potty!

No pic to post here because I simply refuse to post SNOW on my April blog!! Come on...SNOW!?!?! I bet 2-3 inches have fallen in the past 2 hours!

Austin has yet another valid reason why the two of us should be Floridan's and not Michiganders! If it just wasn't for our wonderful friends and families... :)
