Back in business

It's working again!  While it was broken I was here.  (Which is probably where I'll remain)  :)  I tried several times to get blog entries posted and it just wouldn't do it.  But truthfully, I didn't need two blogs. (or maybe even one)

A beautiful moms day

On one of the few days my wife gets a year to do whatever she pleases, she took us to a ballgame. Our first of the season, and Ace's first ever. It was warm, windy, and wonderful!

All Snagged Up 2011

I'm a few weeks behind with this post, but I couldn't miss the annual entry. We were shut out for the second year in a row, and it was way to cold for the end of the season, but we had a great time anyway. Our trusty barge did it's job once again with only a few minor, or not so minor, mechanical problems.

Summer has arrived! (I hope) I've always considered myself a cold weather person, but lately I find myself looking forward to song birds and green grass. Speaking of which, I'm in the hunt for a new mower....old faithful is finally being put out to pasture. My honey-do list seems to increase with the temperatures each spring. There's hail damaged paint to repair, flowers to plant, fences to stain......I should have a nice tan in no time. Crystal recently took the kids to have some spring/Easter pictures taken. This is the only one I've seen so far....I grabbed it from facebook. Apparently they wouldn't cooperate with the photographer, but I like this one none the less. And this somewhat foggy phone pic is from last night at a 40th Bday party for one of Macy's girl scout friends dad. I didn't really know anyone...but the kids seemed to enjoy the mud that surrounded the swing set. That's my future fashion model striking a pose second from the left.
Well...I'm off to buy a mower, and flowers, and charcoal. Hope the rest of you are enjoying the renewed life that is spring.

Happy Fat Tuesday

My poor neglected blog. It's the six day work on around the house a few times with the kids, and start it all over again excuse. I'm having a blast! ( And to be honest, there hasn't been much to blog about ) BUT - I'll soon be leaving for a Patty's Day trip to Vegas where I'm sure I'll pick up all sorts of interesting topics. Be back soon...

Fun with the Fam (winter edition)

Holy cold and snow! Here in my neck of the woods we're in the thick of winter. Which means I'm wishing I had a smaller driveway. (actually I wish I had a snow blower....but I'm afraid the shovel would suffer depression) I'm a soft spoken fan of cold and snow, and of course the kids love it too.
I'm still punching the clock six days a week, so my sister brought her family by last weekend for some R&R and my world famous hamburgers. Fun times!

The two Dave's. I call him Nubbins.

The secrets in the pan!

The girls enjoying some home cooked goodness.

My accountant. (she also doubles as my wife)

I'll say one thing for working long sure makes you enjoy your off time a bit more. Things are going good on all fronts here. We're enjoying some winter and looking forward to some spring. There are some fun plans on the horizon....including Vegas and a Jimmy Buffet stay tuned!
(I promise to clean the camera lens before taking anymore pictures)

Christmas Past

Christmas Eve brunch with mom
Christmas Eve dinner with dad
Happy New Year to all! The decorations got removed today...back to the basement until Thanksgiving passes next year. We had a great Christmas holiday with plenty of family and food. New Years was pretty uneventful....we went to bed at 11:50pm! That's too funny.
I don't have any predictions or resolutions. Just gonna take '11 one day at a time. My upcoming events include: One more family Christmas this coming Sunday. Habitat for Humanity the following Saturday. A check up with my audiologist. A trip to Sin City in March....and the annual fishing trip in April! Let the fun begin!!
