My Girl

I could probably post twice a day about my kids because kids are just amazing. There's no end to the things they re-teach us. But I don't want to be the parent who flips out the pictures every time you see them. (You know the ones)
It's just lately I find myself worried that I'm not dedicating enough time with my daughter. A two year old running around needing constant supervision makes it easy to forget there's an eight year old in the next room who needs that attention just as much. Although she seems to enjoy her time alone....what's up with that!?
So, in the name of quality time and school work, Macy and I collaborated recently on a poster board book report. It was great, and I'm glad to report I have more patience than the average second grader. (She really didn't like waiting for glue to dry)
Also, tonight,  she got to be a butterfly and sing a duet at her class music program. She did fantastic.
So...Macy, if you're reading this in 40 years and you think I passed up too much time with you, be sure and stick me in a lousy care home with hairy overweight orderlies.  I love you girl.

Helping hands

The good Lord blessed us with a daughter who rarely tires of helping out her lil bro. Yesterday we played at the park for a few minutes after school and the little man wasn't quite big enough for a few of the steps.  Macy to the rescue.

Smokin something good

This past Saturday we had some family over to celebrate my moms birthday. The only thing better than having family at the house is cooking for them, so I was up before the sun building a fire in the smoker. Unfortunately Cris came down with a stomach bug and spent the day in bed. :(
The rest of us dined on hand made salad, ribs, potatoes, and a delicious desert my sister prepared. I just realized we didn't have a cake or sing happy birthday, but mom didn't seem to mind. She left our house and headed to sunny Florida for several weeks....who needs cake when you've got that?

Back where we started

So it looks like I'm back here where I belong. I've had a fun year blogging at Wordpress but due to some domain issues I jumped ship. I do hope you'll forgive the back and forth and I will do my best to stay put this time. More to come soon!

P.S.  It finally snowed!
