Uneventful Day

Today has been completely uneventful for me. It's been a little stressful for mom and dad tho.

It seems that their business is just not doing so well in this economy. They've NEVER not had work to do but there just isn't any out there. They own the business and pay the bills, but their son - my brother, well it's really something they started for him...and well, it's just not doing well - it's a construction business www.signaturecontractingllc.com - and they've always been really busy cause they do terrific work but these days it seems nobody has much money. Daddy has another real job but he's in sales and it's affected by this lousy economy too. Normally mommy does the marketing and advertising for Signature but there's just no money to do that so she's got lots of time for blogging...but it upsets her terribly. Today she went out to look for a job to help tie things over for a while - but she's a bit "mature" and not many people want to hire "mature" people no matter how much experience they may have.

Oh well - life goes on and mommy has faith so let's hope it will be okay.

Now since I've been such a downer I'm gonna post some pics - not so much of me - just whatever I can find on mommy's lap top! I hope ya'll don't mind.

That's Livy dancing with her Daddy [my big brother]

That's my brother Steve, Mommy in the middle, and Daddy - mommy only surrounds herself with handsome men - LIKE ME

That's mommy & Livy

That's Livy working on her original piece for "Chalk The Walk" - the finished photos must be on the desktop - but Livy won 1st place in her division "amateur 6-10 yr. old" She's quite talented!

That's Livy in the Adirondacks - it was the 1st time she had seen snow. I wasn't born yet, so I didn't get to go - maybe next year!

That's Livy getting a ski lesson from Daddy - I wish I could ski!

That's Livy coming down the bunny hill - apparently she was flying down by the end of the day!

That's Daddy and Livy at the Horse Park in Lexington - I was at the hotel snoozing because they wouldn't let doggies in. My brother was already at the track.....They let Livy in at the track but they wouldn't let me in...why is that?????

That's Livy & Me in my devil costume

Me and Livy - She's my very best pal you know!
Okay - that's probably enough pictures - you're probably bored to tears - Tomorrow we'll work on pics of me!!!!! Maybe mom will have a better day!
