Daddy's Toys

Since three of the four kids around here are girls, 
Jack seems to be "forced" into playing dress up and dolls. 

I actually kept some of Andy's favorite toys  from when he was little. 
Jack has to get this barn and tractors out whenever he comes to play.

There's just something about a pudgy little hand.......♥


There are so many similarities between Andy and Jack. 
Sometimes it gives me flashbacks to 23 years ago. 
I guess that means I'm only 25 years old on those days!
No wonder I love having him around.
Awesome.

Papa's Girls


His little girls smile at him
with unbridled joy
just cause it's him.
They don't care if he's old
or grey, or creaks a little
when he walks up the stairs.

They think he's funny
when he's just goofy.
And they play horsey
with a guy who is slow to get up
let alone catch a little girl.


They play games
and they snuggle with him.
Cause they love him
and he loves them.

They run to him when there's trouble
with Mom or Dad.
Though he won't interfere
it's nice to know
they think he might.

They like him to read them books
and he likes it too.
Because he loves books
and them.

They claim "his chair" as theirs
because all he has belongs to them
and we all know that.


They spill stuff
they break things
they're often noisy
don't always mind
sometimes sassy
and make him wonder
why he ever cared
about any of that.

His daughter was his sun
and moon and stars
rolled up into one.

And she still is
because of two little girls.

A Little Ketchup

Oh... I meant "Catch Up"


Since I've been away from the blogging world for way too long, here are a couple pics to try to get back on track. I didn't realize how far behind I've gotten. So much has happened since I blogged in mid November.

This picture of Hadalye is from November 8th....before we got dumped on with our first snow.

I love this one of Brian and his truck.

 On December 1st I went to use the kitchen sink and no water would come out of the faucet. The pump down in the well was broken. They came and replaced it later that day.   $$OUCH$$

 There was nothing special going on this day. I just love the picture.

 On Cyber Monday I was doing a little online shopping and came across the best deal ever! I have been wanting one of these but the one I wanted was $400, way to expensive for me.

I found this one at Kohls....on sale....extra 30% off....Kohl's bucks....and free shipping.....

I only paid $120 for it! The best deal of 2011!
