We're Going To Miss Uncle Neil

and not just for the treadmill help, building the playground, and hanging about 15 things that were difficult to hang around the house (all with below-standard tools).

Fes Trip with my Brother

morocco_109_fes2.jpg

Any suggestions for collage making software for a Mac? I used a demo version of CollageIt for this one but I don't like the fact that you can't move the photos where you want them, it just automatically shuffles them for you not really taking into account the photos. I want something where I have a template and can just drag and drop the photos where I want and that I can edit the photos within the template, to move them where I want them within the box.

Dylan would have no part of Santa, but he did like the tree
and watching as other kids sat on his lap.

An Ava Original

Ava loves to make up her own songs and ask me to video tape them.
