In order of bravery: Ashleigh, bravest. Avery, sort of brave. Jordyn....chicken liver.
"BYE BYE, OCEAN!!" (Bay, technically)

rrrright... Well, here are a few things that have happened.... Probably most notably, Tony was on a business trip out of state and had appendicitis. He thought he just had food poisoning at first, but after he passed out in his hotel bathroom because of the pain, he figured it might be something more serious. He had to call 911 to get to the hospital, and after many hours and tests later, they sent him home because "everything looked normal". Well, after the pain meds wore off around 4AM, back to the hospital he went and a few short hours later he was on in the O.R. getting his appendix out. Thanks to the generosity of his "work family&…


Almost there....just gotta adjust the font colors, etc...

Man this is fun. And I'm being serious!

I forgot how to do a custom background. I keep coming up with ones that aren't wide enough.

More studying needed.

I wish I would just be able to remember what I've done in the past instead of trying to figure it out from scratch every time. grrrrz.
