A Late Birthday Present

I got a late birthday present, but it’s one of the most thoughtful and touching gifts I’ve ever received. Nolan gave me a domain name for this website this week. Yes, you can forget that old whatever.homelinux.blahblah stuff that you used to have to type to ...

Ready. Set. GO!

500 yard swim. 12 mile bike. 3.1 mile run. Oh my.

We did it! We really entered a race. A sprint triathlon actually. If we are in the first 320 people to have entered online for the Beaver Freezer on OSU campus (not Oklahoma state university- I wish it ...

Twenty loaves and counting

This is turning into my “how do I love thee Bosch?” website. Yes, I am ridiculous.

Ily made an excellent tabblo:



Tabblo: Micah's B-day

This is the cake that started it all. The Camp-out cake. Notice the campfire.

Reece Learned a New Word... GraySkull

Dinner was absolutely hilarious tonight. Randomly, Reece held aloft his magic fork and started jabbering in cadence to the He-Man monologue where Prince Adam holds aloft his magic sword and says “by the power of Grayskull, I have the Power!” Nothing could we understand other than the word Grayskull. Oh ...

We Have Left the Three Year Old Stage Behind. We hope.

On January 16th, 2008, Micah turned 4. Yes, it was this last Wednesday that we celebrated in style the momentous occasion when Micah left the Mighty Age of 3 to become a 4 YEAR OLD!

Age 3 has been good (yet often filled with lots of passionate tantrums from this ...
