Some things simply matter more than others

The whole weird bunch...

Obviously, that last one wasn't supposed to be a duplicate, or without words, either. Just more of the learning process. The storm picture was the tornado forming out our back door (it touched down southwest of here about 20 miles) the day I talked to Ben, in Sept. I think; the picture of me was on my birthday, so you can bet I was telling Mel not to take the picture; Tim-- well, it's a Sunday night, that should explain it; Mel and Suzie on the first day of school and one silly day at home. There you go, gang; identify us for the little ones, laugh at us, cry for us, run screaming from us -- whatever seems appropriate...
See you soon!
Hugs, Yomama

My Israeli Friends

This is Ilana and "Dillon" (he didn't spell his real name, so I don't remember it), two young Israelis I met in Nashville. They were adorable and thought the same of me (bizarre, ain't it), so Tim took our picture together.
(I think perhaps this one loaded because it was small. This game is seriously hampered by our dial-up, and my lack of skills in managing pictures/size.)
Okay, I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but this takes me too long. The pics are not loading, and I've listened to most of a Josh Groban cd without getting any images... so maybe this is why you don't get much from your grumpy ol' mama. I had some fun pictures to post, but -- well, I guess I need more coaching or something. Ya think?
Regardless of what comes of this session, I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone in the flesh, because that will always be better than a blog -- even your crazy, cute, creative, character-flaunting ones!
Much love,

Meet Xander Adamz

This little cutie is your nephew/cousin Alexander Caleb, known and loved as Xander. His mommy, daddy, Grandma and Grandpa spent time in Centennial Park in Nashville, where this photo was taken. I thought you should see the big boy that has his parents wrapped around his little pinkie...

Shan, Glenn and Xander are a peaceful, happy little family. It was great to see them. You can't really tell how big he is, because it's nothing for Glenn to carry him around; but he's a heavy load for Shan, especially because of her injured back. Hope and pray she's good as new before too long.

Weird, how things sometimes get started. It's nearly 1 a.m. our time, I'm planning on going to the temple at 9 a.m. But I wanted to see these great new pictures on your blogs, one thing led to another (mainly not being able to post on Gibby's blog)... and here I am, a Cox family blogger.
(Weirder yet, I still don't know what a blog is, or why it's called that-- and you know me, I want answers to my questions!)
Anyway, no, I'm not going to post any pictures right now. But soon... Mel will take over once she gets wind of this game; and that will probably be okay.
So, grownup kids of mine, you've sucked me into your game. We'll see how well I play.
Never forget how much I love you!
