and more Rain

Texas has had a LOT of rain. We've been fortunate in Bedford with plenty of inches and soggy yard, but no roof leaks or damage, no hail, no dire circumstances. It's been crazy, but we've embraced it. The yard is green, the flowers are glorious, and our water bill is down - no sprinklers running, no water added to the pool.
A new Faries has been added to the brood - Skylar Rayne was born on 5/2/15. Here she's with her mother Maria.  Kevin's the proud dad

 I suggested a name change since she's been born. Let's change Skylar Rayne to Skylar Sunshine......
I don't think they are going to follow my brilliant suggestion. I seem to be dismissed with an eye roll as that "crazy writer lady".   Here Skylar is in good hands with big sis, Makyla, age 6.

All are healthy.  Rein in the rain

Happy Friday, everybody


  1. Crazy writer lady! That's what I aspire to ;-) The bottom picture is adorable.

  2. Congratulations! What a little cutie Skylar is. And I happen to think your suggestion about that minor name change for her was great. (Funny, too!)

    I'll betcha everyone would like to be a crazy writer lady. :)

    Happy weekend!

  3. A beautiful family! Would you believe that my Pete is in Bedford this evening?! He rode up there with a friend who is picking up a new truck. I talked to him earlier and he said he saw the little lady from Bedford who was on the Voice giving a free outdoor concert.

  4. Aw, so sweet! Congratulations on adding a new family member. :)

  5. Hi Crazy Writer Lady - Joanne - thanks for being so positive re my blog ... lots of posts to read though ... but I'd hate to tempt you back before September!!

    I'm glad you haven't had any major hassle with your storms - they've looked yuggy and dangerous ...

    The littlie looks a delight and the first one isn't bad either ... enjoy them - wonderful May news ...

    Enjoy the writing .. cheers Hilary
