Sleep #……..

May 31, 2011

Just realized I have posted the same picture more than once.  I am not going to remove the duplicate.  It will serve as a reminder of just how tired I am/was.  I think that’s what blogs are for. 

We will be back home tonight, where there is a camera.  I plan on taking pictures. Stay tuned.



Good Times…………

May 29, 2011

Holiday weekend, just in time.  Premier League Finals, well done Barcelona.  Controversy within FIFA, World Cup on American soil?  As if that is not enough excitement, we are still chasing Alice and Anna, house-sitting for the in-laws, trying to sell our house, and attempting to get some sleep here and there.

The girls are doing great.  Anna is already getting so big.  She holds her head up, and has a really strong set of lungs for a two month old.  Alice, well, lets just say she has a mind of her own.  She’s doing a great job pushing the limits and figuring out how much mischief she can get away with.  “Time Out” is no stranger to Alice.  Here are a couple of pictures, I don’t remember when we took them, I don’t remember what day it is, and I am still thinking about running away to Mexico.  Mmmmmmmmmm, Mexico.

Having a second daughter scared the you know what out of me, how am I gonna protect them from the world?  First things first, how am I gonna protect them from each other?

Over and out.


Trial By Fire…….

May 25, 2011

I recently started a new job which involves very heavy machinery.  Today I was enlisted to handle some of the company’s smaller equipment.  A simple Ford F-350 with a trailer hooked to the back.  I’d say the same size trailer you see lawn companies using to get their mowers around town.  I headed a couple of towns over to pick up some company property that happened to be in a residential Cul-de-Sac.  Truck, trailer, result.

40 minutes, when I finally hit the open road, well, freedom felt pretty good.  Sorry to anyone that could not leave their driveway during my “on the job training”


Big Smiles All Around……….

We are still alive, we just don’t accomplish things quite as fast as we did pre-Anna.  Here are some new pics to keep everyone interested.

We are still incredibly busy, all the time.  Alice and Anna are in daycare, Sarah and I are working like dogs.  Lebowski was right, the bums lost, go get a job sir!  On that note I will put you back in your element with Alice and Anna.

Party Time……..

May 13, 2011

Yes it has been too long, and yes I am going to make you wait a little longer.  Today is my big sister’s birthday, which means tonight is her birthday party.  The camera will be out, the family will be there, many pictures will be taken.

The new job is smooth sailing so far.  I am guessing it is just a matter of time before the poo hits the fan.  I have been able to travel a little bit, Kansas City, St. Louis.  Don’t let the news reports about violence and crime steer you wrong, St. Louis is still a cool city. 

Alice has really grown to love Anna, it’s already very obvious that they are sisters.  Alice got to start back at “school” last week and Anna got to go with her!  Both of the girls are at the same daycare, I may be the only one that is super excited about that, Alice is there to keep an eye on her baby sister.  Good Stuff.  Pictures of the party tomorrow.

Asta la pasta.


Giant Bubbles

May 4, 2011

Quite a day at the Children’s Museum this morning. Suzanne, Joe, Kate, Sarah, Alice, and Anna. PLUS, we ran into Sarah’s sister-in-law, and Alice’s friend Porter and his grandfather. Here are Alice, Joe, and Porter in the giant bubble:
