A couple months ago I had the privilege of meeting Ahhhh-ZZZEEEEEEEEEEY (Ozzie, that's how he says it) and his family. I can't even tell you how much I love them. The Niblock's have a special place in my heart, and Dan is one of the best friends I could ever ask for (he's also an amazing advocate and incredibly talented).
It's because of my weekend with Ozzie that I learned the sign for dinosaur, and Sheridan now signs it all the time (with an accompanying roar/"ooooo" every time). Also thanks to Ozzie, at random times throughout my week (say, while I'm showering, or trying to fall asleep, or trying to stay awake during a meeting) all of a sudden I hear, "let's riiiiiide the dinosaur train!" Thanks, Ozzie, I don't know how I lived without that catch phrase.
I hope to meet more of you IRL :) Especially if you treat me like a Queen as The Niblock's did... um, a sight-seeing and culinary tour of their hometown? Check! Late nights drinking beer and watching Bob Ross re-runs? Check! And thank you very much for that... you're my kind of people! ;-)
Love you all :)
|The beautiful and very talented Layla... she has the best imagination, sense of humor, and is SO much fun to play with. Layla, I wear my button ring you made me all the time.|
|If I could surround this image with cute little hearts and stars I would... Ozzie is the sweetest (and most energetic!) little guy (he would even give Sheridan a run for his money - I don't think Ozzie has an off switch). And, well, Dan simply rocks.|
|Dina is amazing. And stunningly beautiful. I enjoyed getting to know you so much better! :)|
