Camel and Donkey

I'm trying to plan what the Sunday school children will do for our church's "Open house" Christmas event. I had Joy and Briley try these on for size. I think they'll be great in a parade!

Megan and a pickle :)

My sister-in-law Missi was sad because there were no pictures of her daughter Megan on my Blog. Here is one of my favorites taken on July 4th 2008.

Another picture from the slide series....


Same day, same slide......

Me and Joy

I was lying on the slide at the park, and Joy slid down head first next to me for this shot.

Muppet Movie Sing-a-Long!

The Center for Puppetry Arts is celebrating their 30th anniversary! This special event was for members-only.(Glad I'm finally a member!) Me and Joy loved singing along with the Muppet movie, blowing bubbles, booooing and cheering and such, as led by Heather Henson and friends up front. We also really enjoyed seeing the new "Henson:Wonders from his workshop" exhibit ......... Wonderful! Can't wait to go back to the center and see it again.

When in Rome...

This is an episode of uncontrollable laughter in response to a story about a skin graft on someone's leg. The source of the skin graft is the newly harvested foreskin of a newborn. They were discussing side effects, one of which might be a little unexpected "stiffness."

We were at Lee's house in Rome, GA prior to going to the RIFF (Rome International Film Festival).
My brother Karl is on the left of the screen with one of my dog puppets.
The man laughing is my Dad, Leland Staven. The other voice off camera is his wife, Laura. The other uncontrollable high squeaky laugh is yours truly.
