we start 'em early

chase tells me i'm crazy because i write thank you notes for everything. but come on, when you check the mail isn't it fun to get something that is handwritten...something besides a bill or somebody wanting money...something besides every issue of every golfing magazine ever printed? you know i'm right!

besides, i can't remember a day when i didn't write thank you notes. i think my mom made me write the ones for the gifts people brought me when i was born. i'm not saying i always liked to do it, but it's just something that i've always done. so, i still do. (except my mom and sisters-in-law don't usually get one...they know i love them.)

anyway, now william is in on the action.

a lady whose husband works with chase brought a gift over for reed last week. to their excitement, she also brought william and wes each a cupcake. as i was writing a note for the gift, william said he'd write one for the cupcake. i had to help with some spelling, but otherwise he did it all by himself, and he was so proud of it!



1 down...2 to go. and that might be a while considering wes would rather eat the crayon than hold it in his hand. you take what you can get!!

it's tough

i mean, it's not all that easy to hold up this big, 'ol head! but, my neck gets in a good workout every once in a while because i like to see what's happening with those other two people that run around here making all the noise!


but, sometimes i just can't take it anymore and crash down to the ground on my side.


and when i'm down there and find my thumb, it doesn't matter if i've squirmed off of my blanket or not...i'm down for the count and out like a light.


and even though they make too much noise and wake me up, those bigger people love me and like to dish out the hugs.


and i don't mind that one bit!

happy birthday, chase!

we love you...


...and that ice cream cake, too!


hey, you better enjoy it while you can because next year when there are 3 of them eating on your cake, you'll be lucky to get a single piece!!

too funny!

i remember lying in bed and watching saturday night live every weekend when i was in junior high. now, i don't know anybody that still watches saturday night live (except my dad...love you, daddy!) because it's just not funny anymore. i mean, when the spartan cheerleaders, deep thoughts by jack handy, toonsis the driving cat, kevin nealon as the news anchor, adam sandler as opera boy, and dana carvey as the church lady ceased to exist, so did saturday night live.

HOWEVER...last saturday, the opening monologue was hilarious. chase heard about it on the radio, and we watched it on you tube. it is make you laugh-out-loud funny. so please do yourself a favor, sit back, press the play button below, and prepare to be entertained!!

god made him special

there is no doubt about that!

wes came home from school last week with a picture that he had painted which also stated why he was special. typical wes.


hey, at least the boy has his priorities in order!
