Dad's Surprise

My dad is having knee replacement surgery and so we all (family and friends) pitched in and got my dad a new tv so ease his recover. =) It's REALLY hard to pull one over on him, but somehow the stars were all aligned and we managed to pull one over on him. He thought mom had to work (but really she was with us and getting the cable boxes turned in so that she could get the HDTV boxes.) so he went and ran an errand and tried to bring mom lunch. But she wasn't there...poor dad. Thank goodness nobody was at school to tell him that she really hadn't been there. He eventually came home where we surprised him with his new tv. He thought that mom had bought him a new LZ Boy chair so he thought he had it all figure out - lol. He tried to drop his mouth and act surprised thinking that he knew what it was....but once he saw what it acutally was his mouth stayed open. I don't think we've ever been able to pull one on him like this!!

Bringing in the boxes.
Bringing him in with his eyes closed.
It's a family effort
Jimmy was our technical support
Dad had to go to work right after we gave it to him.
Dad got to have the honors of turning it on for the first time.

Oh Bob!!
After Rob's surgery my parents have been kind enough to keep Bob for us while he recovers. So we haven't seen him and miss him. This is Rob letting Bob know how much we love him.

Rob's Knee

I am still learning how to upload pictures on my new camera so I have lots of pictures to share but this is the only one I could get on the blog thus far. But anyway Rob is about 3 weeks post surgery and is doing great! He's off all pain meds and is getting cabin fever. Which is pretty big for him because he really likes being at home. He should start out patient physical therapy this week so that will keep him busy. The doctor said he could probably return to work in about 3 weeks. I am so proud of him and his recovery.
My dad is having knee replacement surgery tomorrow. Rob will be there at the hospital with my mom to support them during the surgery. And since Rob is the closest one to know what Dad's going through, he'll be there to offer his advice and sympathetic ear. We'll keep you posted!

Mom and Dad Visit

My parents came for a visit to Palm Desert to check on Rob. =)
(The trash bag behind the chair is recycling that needs to be brought to the garage. I don't want anyone to think we leave trash bags laying around!)

New Camera Test

I got a new camera for my birthday and it finally came in!! These are some of the shots I took trying out my new camera.
My cutie patooty

He's a busy guy!! On the phone...two computers...papers in his hand!! GEZZ!


Sometimes when you're not feeling well ice cream hits the spot! So here's Rob's sad face. He gives me this face to guilt me into giving him what he wants......and it usually works!

And since I always give in ......this is Rob in a sugar coma!
