This is my lovely family page.. Don't have much to put here yet, and haven't for a while...

My apologies to dial-up users, and those browsing at low resolutions. As time goes on, I add
more and more pictures, which causes you to wait longer to download the page.... and
I have a layout that I want the page to have, forcing you to scroll left and right to see them all.
These were taken during my trip home during Christmas.
This is my sister having a delightful time in the snow. This is the second time in her life she'd seen it, and it was on Christmas Day. Taken right outside my Mom's apartment's back porch.
Clockwise, from 9 o'clock, Dan, Nina, Mom, Dad, and Rebecca. This is the most immediate family I've ever had in one place. As you can see, many many great gifts were exchanged. Mrs. Vicki, Mr. Bobby, Mom, and Rebecca.. Taken at Mr. Bobby's house. If you look below, you will see a room with him wearing a red jumpsuit, and a very barren hardwood floor. This is that same room.
This is my cousin Stacey standing in front of her (and Drew's... HAHA! Get it? And-Drew? Get it?) beautiful house's fireplace. I was so busy taking pictures of her house and her cat, that I forgot to take a picture of her. I feel like such a dolt, but she did manage to squeeze into this one. This is their great cat, Nimbus. The majority of the time I visited, was spent trying to make the cat act as crazy as possible. Here is a little rabbit's foot thing on the end of a fishing pole. There was also a remote controlled mouse that worked really well, but not as good as was normal. Stacey assured me the cat was unusually sedate.
New Addition to the Family
Uncle Walter just got a brand new baby girl in the mail. On the right, there he is holding her. Above, is Aunt Stacy missing out on all the action. She was born (the baby, not Aunt Stacey) on November 10, 2003 at 3:48 am, weighing 7 lbs, 3.1 oz, and 20 1/2 inches tall. She came out perfectly (so the father says.. hehehe), and had an Apgar score of 9 & 9 (whatever that means.. I'll wait until I have my own babies before I study up on it..).
Oops.. Forgot to put her name...
Danielle Anastasia Minton Smith.
First cousin with two middle names, I think. :)
Nina's WeddingUnfortunately 25 out of the 32 pictures I took came out really blurry (I knew I should've gotten a new camera), and most of those were duplicates so all I have to show off is three of them.
This page is best viewed at high resolutions.
This is a nice picture of (from left to right) Me, Mom, Nina, Dan, and Rebecca.
I didn't take it, but rather received it in an email, which is strongly encouraged. :)
Here's who kept me company amidst so many others that I didn't know. My sister Rebecca, Mom, and my girlfriend Jessie. Before I pressed the button all three were standing silently facing the same direction, with their arms crossed left over right with the program held in the right hand. Rebecca saw me taking a picture and posed by uncrossing her arms, and Jessie looked the other way to keep from her face out of the picture... So it's not as good as it could have been. Of the six or so pictures I took of the cake being eaten, only two came out clear. This is one, and the other one shows nothing but the back of the photographer (that one was taken when they gave each other a bite). I had a couple of pictures of the plantation where the wedding took place, but all are pretty plain and barren compared to this one. As we were leaving the place the newlyweds and a couple of photographers came outside and I had to stop and take a picture. I took two, actually... The other one is the same thing, but a little closer. I liked this one better. I waved to them, but I don't think they saw me.
Mom's Rug Habit
Oh, the time it took mom to make this rug.. Minutes? Nope! Hours? Nope! Days? Nope!
Weeks? Yep!... Well, no actually...
Months then? Yes. I believe four months is what it took to make this monster of a rug. It weighs about ten pounds. 9½ of it is yarn. Wool yarn. Not the cheap acryllic kind, either!
It is now hung on my wall with two extra strength nails, as a display for a fraction of the sweat, blood, and tears Mom has put towards me.
These are pictures of my sister, getting the glory of actually riding a horse in the all-too-famous Mardi Gras. She had about 30 hours of riding experience prior to this even.
And about these picture, I wasn't there to take them, yet they somehow ended up on this page... I wonder how...? OH! THEY WERE EMAILED TO ME!!!! Need more pics, folks.
These are pictures that are too small to put in the table...The wedding picture is my favorite cousin getting married. Then it's all my cousins directly related to her plus Zip, Lock, and some black cat.
I looked really stupid in this picture, so I erm...fixed it up. This is my mom and two sisters.
This is my younger sister refining her horse riding skills.
Again this is my younger sister, putting her arm around Sam Walton.
This is my Rent-A-Dad. He learned me a few things about the world, as well as gave me money.
This is my Rent-A-Mom. She learned me a few Martha Stewart type things, as well as convinced Rent-A-Dad to give me money.
This is my older sister. She is reviewing my mom's resume, but too scared to critique it.
This is my cat, Simone. He is very vicious, so don't pet him.
This is my Rent-A-Cat, named Boomer. Possibly the best kitty in the world.
