We have 2 new members of our family!



It is a little hard to see but we have gotten 2 goldfish for the huge vase that I thought looked like the Victorians fancy goldfish bowls. One is a bright orange and the other is white with splashes of orange and gold. They are fancy tails. The white one is very shy. I haven't named them yet, but I'm sure I'll come up with some really good names.



This is the orange one that came close enough to the glass for me to snap it's pic. The other one is still hiding among the live plants I put in there.

I haven't had goldfish since we moved down here. I always have had koi ponds where ever we have lived. John and I usually dig the ponds and either buy a liner or a fiberglass form. We just never got around to doing that here. I can now enjoy my fish inside and if the house sells we can just move them with us!

The goldfish are adorable but WOW! Your kitchen is amazing! My daughter and I ooohed and ahhhed over it. You are so lucky!

What a great idea, Sherri! Will you keep them on the kitchen island? I agree with Kay, beautiful kitchen!

I hope yours don't get as big as my Kirby. He's in a 15 gallon tank now and is about to outgrow that one!

And I agree about your kitchen!

Thanks everyone! I love my kitchen, especially the granite counters! Still haven't named the fish!

I love that big vase. The second photo wouldn't load for me so I couldn't see them close up.

Gorgeous kitchen and a fab idea for the vase! Have fun naming the fish. What does your pup think?

Vickie, Teddy keeps looking up at them and watches them, another words very confused!


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
