Pin Oak…………

October 25, 2012

Saw me a few snowflakes today.  Cold and grey, damp, chilly, grim.  But, the past couple of weeks have been totally rad.  Sunshine, no humidity, all of the trees had changed color.  Word on the street is that it should be a mild winter, sooooooo, that means it will be colder than any year on record and we will get ten feet of snow.  That is the rule of midwestern optimism.  So here is my prediction, get an extra cord of firewood and stock the basement with canned food and bottled water, cause’ this winter is going to be brutal.  Here are some pictures, pre-ice age.


Where is my mind?…………..

Becoming forgetful is one thing, but totally losing your marbles is another.  We had a totally rad weekend in Minneapolis with the G family, and I’d like to thank them for the hospitality, the brisket and the Michelob.  FYI, it took me more than a week to crack a beer after that trip, I was hung over for an entire week, nice work.  Maybe now that we are back in town and things are settling down my organizational skills will kick back in.  The girls are doing great, Anna is HUGE, Alice is FAST, and here are PICTURES!!!!!  As you can see from the photos, Anna not only needs to be watched while she is awake, now we have to check in on her after bedtime to make sure she is keeping her hands and feet inside the ride at all times.  Enjoy!
