Georgia On My Mind!

This week I'm back in Georgia....on a "working vacation".
That means I'm working (directing a wedding!)
and vacating!
Well, I've found time to do a few other things too...
like getting together with my Birthday Group
to celebrate Andi's birthday!
Here they are...all except Lynn (who came in later)
and me (who is holding the camera!)

Here's Lynn and Dana (before she fell asleep!).

Sheila & Pam

Okay, we can see them better now!

OOps! Who stole my camera?


Andi (the Birthday Girl!)

Our Family

Our whole family has not been together for Christmas
in over 17 years.....
and finally this year we all met in Denver....
except Melissa (Noy's daughter) and her sweet family.
We really missed her.....and
I want to figure out how we can digitally
insert their pictures into the one below!

Noy Leon Sparks, Sr. & Ruby Sparks
Ann Sparks White & Noy Leon Sparks, Jr.
Ann's family on the left:
Courtney, Nathan Josiah, Tiffany, Ethan, Kellen, Tarin, Presley, Chandler, & Ann.
Noy's family on the right:
Noy, Linda, Mark, Noy iii, Maiza, Dawn, Bella.

Okay....below you can see the difference from the
left-over snow from last pictured here:
(remember the burried yellow truck that Nathan
uncovered and moved?).....

...and today's new snow:

the official name is now:

"The Blizzard of 2006 II"

It's an interesting snow...much different from last week's snow.
The wind is not near as fierce and therefore
the snow has stuck to the trees (unlike last week)
and they are absolutely beautiful!
Just see for yourself---you will have to scroll because
these are the "Blizzzard II" photos....and below them
are the pics from everyone playing in the
left-over snow of last week!

Above: last evening after about 6" of snow all afternoon
(when we missed our flight home!)....
Below: today Chandler trying his hand at shoveling!

Many of you know how Chandler's feet are always too hot
and hurting....well, he found a cure!

These are the pics from last week's snow:'s warm enough for short sleeves!

Nathan, the snow bunny.

Nathan---the poker bunny.

....oh, and I forgot to include
some photos of Presley....
here goes:

When asked, "What's your name?", Presley always answers,
"I'm a Howboy"
(COWboy....everything starts with an "H")

A "White" Christmas....

We have enjoyed our "White Christmas" in Denver....with almost my whole immediate family gathered together in spite of the Blizzard of 2006!
My dad's favorite spot: in front of the fireplace!

My mom enjoying all her Great Grandchildren!

All of the Great-Grandchildren!
(and Dawn)

It was great to have my newphew, Mark, with us
whom we haven't seen in a couple of years.




The whole gang in new PJ's!

Ethan with his "wheels" shoes!

Josiah's construction company is called "Trailmark Homes"...
so I thought this coffee mug was appropriate!


More playing in the snow!
