Funny Faces (Finally)

So here is part of my funny-faces pictures... some of my best ones. I hope you enjoy them! And to anyone who's featured here, I hope you don't get too annoyed with me... all I can say is if you pictures like this of me or others, then go ahead and post them! It's a lot of fun! :D :D :D

Laurie has some good ones here too at her blog.

Just to clarify, I don't think there is any editing done on any of these except for cropping.

Single Shots

Dad, who can pull off some of the most amazing faces I've ever seen. (Yes, that was a big fish, but not ...that... big.)

Jorge, a good friend from Mexico, practicing to be an opera singer. (Actually, Josh B was trying to steal his nose :) ).

Steve... always stands out in a crowd, eh?

My new cousin Joseph, VERY happily married to Sarah out West.

Two's A Pair, Three's Company

My dear brother and his wife. They are one of a kind, eh? :)

Like brother, like sister? (The picture of Rachel on the right was posed for last year's Boxing Day 'Movies'. You can find the pictures on

Jason & Stef. Believe it or not, this was NOT planned.

Kevin and Dan, brothers.

Mark showing one of his skills and Ruth's reaction. (Well... not really, but the pic's do go together well.)

One of my all time favorites.

My sisters and niece all having a "blonde moment". (This one's compliments of Curt.)

And lest I make too many enemies (though I think it's too late already), here's one to make fun of me too. :)

Our New Home

30 comments so far, and growing! It would be interesting to stop writing and see what that number grows to! :) Ruth has definitely done her ad campaign well. So here I am writing away on a blog that I never expected to be on. I suppose that you won for now, Ruth, but I'll find a way somehow or other to get the upper hand. Maybe some pictures from my 'Funny Faces' album would do the trick.... :)

Anyways, as some people might know, and some people might not, we have moved! We now live in Jordan Station, close to St. Catherines, ON. It's in a tiny subdivision out in the middle of vineyards. Dad walks back and forth to school every day and we've been walking to church too! It's very nice to live so close... much different from Dundas days.

As per Curt's request, here's some pictures of the main floor:

And Curt, here are two pictures of the downstairs appartment. (Sorry, I couldn't find any nice ones of the kitchen area... it's on the right of the first picture.) Mom took these pictures before we bought the house, so the stuff isn't ours. I hope you don't mind a nice, PINK room! It will certainly wake you up in the morning!

I can't say I like the colors of most of the rooms, but other than that, I do like the new place, especially being so close to everything (except work, that is). Now Ruth and I are both prescribing the exact opposite course we did all through high-school! (Before we drove from Hamilton to Jordan St every day, and now we're both driving from Jordan St. to Hamilton every day!) :) But we are very thankful for where we are now. God has definitely blessed us in
giving us a home right next to the school and church.

It's 11:24pm and I am beginning to remember why I didn't want to start a blog. I guess I had better sign off here. ¡Hasta luego a todos!

To Blog Or Not To Blog

Hmm.... I said to myself (and to others) before that I would never start a blog. I seem to have done so however, the reason being that I encountered a blog which required me to have a blog to comment on it, so I am starting a blog so that I can comment on someone's else's blog. The inanities of blogging are quite beyond me. (Maybe there should be an 's' character in the second word of the last sentence.) However, I will desist. Hopefully my foray into blogging will curtail itself with this post. If anyone is reading this, then my apologies. :)
