Henry Climbs A Table

Oh, don’t worry about this, it’s just Henry up on a table. He’s real good at getting up and down from it. Don’t even think about picking him up and putting him back down on the floor. He’ll cry it up real good. What  a rascal. When we had Eliza and she started walking, “people” …

Caught Red Handed

  Eliza was caught red handed today. It wasn’t while she was doing anything bad though, she was just finger painting over at grandma’s house on Easter. She created some real masterpieces today. A couple of them she declared to be “Perfect!” and she was right. It was pretty fun times.

Making Easter Eggs

Tonight’s family funtime activity was dying Easter eggs. Eliza got to help out for the first time in her life. This is her 3rd Easter but she’s been so dang small for all of them. Now she helped pick the colors she wanted to dye them, and she put them in the cup herself. Only …

Voodoo Doughnuts In Denver. Meh.

After however long they’ve been opened, we finally went to Voodoo Doughnuts here in Denver. And boy was I disappointed. It’s not that they were bad, they weren’t. I guess they just didn’t live up to they hype the lines out the door and down the block built up. We got the Voodoo Dozen so …

A Couple Of Magicians At Work

There were no strings, this is not trick photography. This is the real deal, my friends. Eliza can levitate. No strings, she just concentrates real hard and makes it happen. It’s like magic, only it’s something even more than magic. You want to see me do a magic “trick” from 8 years ago? It’s really …

Some Different Hats Are Being Worn

  Look at these two children, so cute. And so behatted. They have both worn hats before but these are some different hats they are wearing today. Much the same as the proverbial “hat” I have worn thus far in their lives, that of the stay at home (during the day at least) dad, my …

  Eliza sleeps on the couch sometimes, like in this pic. She’ll play so hard and be so tired but she won’t give up and sleep until she just can’t take it anymore. She so crazy.

How Old Were My Quarters? An Investigation.

We save our change in a big ol’ jar, it adds up pretty quick and nets a hefty payday two or three times a year. While we were emptying it out a couple days ago I decided to grab out quarters and see when they were made. I was bored, ok. So this is the …

Grillin’ Season Is A Go

We broke out the grill and cooked up some shrimps. Oh man, I love grillin’ season! I know a lot of you do it all year but I don’t like to go out on our little tiny patio when it’s snowy and cold. When the weather warms up and we can get out and make …

Checking Things Out


Henry checks out what the checker is doing while checking out at the grocery store. He’s so interested in things. No matter what it is he wants to either see it or hold it, or both. He’s a little rascal about it. His sister was pretty good about staying out of things she should have. …

What I Made For Dinner: Chicken Noodle Soup

What did I make for dinner last night? Homemade chicken noodle soup is what it was. It was delicious! I got a whole chicken a few days ago because they were on sale and it’s been a while since I’ve cooked a whole chicken. I decided to crock pot cook it since we recently got …

Meeting The Easter Bunny

  They both met the Easter Bunny this weekend at an early Easter pancake breakfast and egg hunt. It was pretty fun except for when Eliza met the Easter Bunny. She didn’t like it at all. I guess he was just too big or something. We tried to get a nice pic of her and …

We’ve Got To Stick Together If We’re Going To Make It

    We’ve got to stick together if we’re going to make it. That’s what Henry might have been thinking when he went and joined his sister as she was serving her time out. I don’t remember what it was for exactly, something about hitting or pushing her brother, that’s what it always is. But …

Rainbow Cars. For Eliza

  Amanda showed this pic to Eliza sometime last week and now it’s like her fave. All the time Eliza says, “The one with rainbow cars.” So I thought I’d put it here on the blog so I may retrieve it easier, it always takes me a while to find it now. And that’s what …

Henry Gets Pretty


Henry tried on his sister’s sparkly flowery headband today. He looks so good in it don’t you think? Red is a good color for a giant head flower on him. Did you know that Henry takes really good pictures anymore? He didn’t used to. It was hard to get many good ones when he was …

Throwback Wednesday


This old pic just resurfaced on The Facebook. Look how Freakin tiny Eliza was. Sooo Freakin tiny, that’s how tiny. And look how young I looked back almost 3 years ago. I was a young man with my whole life ahead of me and until a few weeks before I slept for many hours each …
