It’s kind of amazing how things are different from just a few years ago.  When the kids first started doing halloween I would basically do an entire photo shoot with them in their outfits. This year I snapped a photo on my phone while we were out trick-or-treating. And I nearly forgot to do that!¬†

The day I’ve been waiting for finally arrived. The day I should start teaching the kids how to edit FOR ME! Today Andrew is doing a cutdown/stringer of the entire AGT 2017 season while removing all commercials. He’s all over the JKL keys and is learning fast. Because it’s one of those really repetitive jobs […]

As it turns out Sydney needs glasses. Not as bad as her brother did, but she’s crossed over that line enough that we’re going to get her a pair soon. To get the ball rolling we went and tried on a few different frames to get some ideas.

Over two years ago I took the kids to the hobby shop (in part to revisit my own youth) and let each of them pick out a model to build. And finally, the first one was built. So I guess two more years before we do the next one. This one was just a snap […]

It’s been awhile, but we finally made our trip out to CA to see Dr. Michael Goldberg. While we go on a regular basis regardless of what’s going on, this time we were motivated¬†to go because Maximus has been having issues staying on his clean diet.

I’m SO lucky. Never in my life did I think I would have the opportunity to have the summer at home with the kids instead of working full-time. Yet due to the unexpected turn of events of the last 12 months fate has delivered just that to me. The short answer is that, due to […]

Saturday Night Special – A Unscheduled ER Visit

Saturday Night Special – A Unscheduled ER Visit

One minute we’re all on the couch eating popcorn and watching a movie, the next moment we’re in the car driving to the ER. Max hurt himself in a way that I won’t get into because even I wish I could forget it, but it turned out fine in the end and it was a […]

  Earlier this week while I was running an errand with the kids we noticed a new trampoline place. What surprised me was that it’s located in a business park, not a location that would ever really see drive by traffic. We checked it out that afternoon but today they went to actually JUMP and […]
