Paula’s 50th

We – Paula’s loyal friends and family – gathered on November 29 to celebrate her 50th birthday. Leigh-Anne outdid herself with a stylish setting and wonderful food and drink. And Paula glowed all night. Anyone who knows Paula and knows Paula’s friends will know how […]

Turtle food

A funny thing happened during our trip to the zoo today. Funny things always seem to happen when David is around.

Epcot, Crush and Viking dudes

Epcot was an enjoyable day. The park was more enjoyable than I was led to believe. The modern design was interesting, though dated in places. Lots of attractions for the kids. Next time, we’ll spend more time at the country exhibits. However, for the kids, […]

Edan, Eva and Ella

Convocation 2007

The month of May was a momentous one for the Palter family. Leigh-Anne finally received formal recognition of her amazing achievement in obtaining her Masters degree in Business Administration. It was a beautiful spring day on the campus. I love this picture of Leigh-Anne and […]

Our Teletubbies

The big and little twins spent the weekend together on the farm, while mommy and daddy enjoyed a luxurious weekend away. Twins that play together stay together. And they really do bear some resemblance to the cute (but oddly named) British foursome. Don’t you think? […]
