We didn't sell her....


Many folks are wondering where lucy went? Yes, we do still have a daughter. And we love her very much.

We even have the paraphernalia to prove it.




Don't worry that this apron also comes with matching house slippers (compliments of my dad and his fetish with all things bizarre). Gramps also sent an "I love Lucy" plaque for her room. The first of many "theme" gifts, I'm sure. Thanks dad!

I'm still in search of a display cabinet substantial enough to fit all the "jack" paraphernalia grandpa gave us for our firstborn- Jack license plate, Jack in the box gift cards, Jack books, a set of silver Jacks, "You don't know JACK" t-shirt, Cracker Jack lunch pail, and the list goes on and on.

We are naming our next kid Hoobenstein. That should give ole' Jay a good challenge.

Here are some more pictures that prove our love for Lucy.



6 weeks and still waiting on a smile.



See, we're even sharing secrets. Ahhhh.

Hopefully this clears up any confusion that may have led you to believe that Jack is our favorite child.

P.S. I might get carried away with my new font, text size and color options. It's probably a phase...it will pass.

Hoobenstein, that's the name that I was going to use. I guess I'll let you use that one! Lucy is so cute,it has been awhile since I've seen a picture of her. I love the I Love Lucy apron!

Wow! I can't believe she's 6 weeks already! She looks just like Troy!

Hoobenstein works better for your purpose than Hoobastank. He'd be able to find some memorabilia then.

Lucy is so cute. You have such a beautiful family!
