Maren is at it Again

I was cleaning my room for the much awaited arrival of Shelli, Trevor and family and Maren was helping me. We soon got into a spanking war and I was winning as usual. She told me she was going to get some lunch and came back with this contraption. She calls it the Spank Protector. Smart kid. huh?

Do you believe in magic?

This is an untouched photo I took a few years ago in our back yard. I bought a poppy plant, mainly because my dad loved them and I had never had one before. The plant was small, without a bud in sight. In a couple weeks, the round buds began to appear and I was excited to see how tall it was becoming. One morning, I looked out my kitchen window and saw something glowing in the backyard. It couldn't be! As I approached, I was awestruck. The sunlight filtering through the rich red petals made the flower glow in an unearthly way I had never seen before in another flower. No one who saw it could believe their eyes. Every year I looked forward to this magical sight, but one fall, I was weeding the little flower island and I moved a few items around. I forgot the poppy, which had died back for the winter. The next spring, I kept waiting for the mass of green leaves to appear, but they did not. I had managed to destroy this amazing plant in one moment of forgetfulness. I have been looking for a similar poppy since then, but have had no luck.
The people in our lives are no less amazing..beautiful, unique. We can never forget the magic they impart, the love they share. I am so grateful for a life full of magic.

Candy Bouquet

One of my best friend's 16th birthday was coming up and I had no idea what to get her! I was talking about this with my mom and my aunt Erica, and Erica suggested a candy bouquet! I thought it was such a great idea. My mom (having previously worked in a flower shop) helped me with the arrangement. It was way fun to put together, creative, unique, and edible! Just thought I would share this awesome gift idea that anyone would love.
Thanks Erica! :)

Filly of the Week!

Usually this "award" is only given to the true athletes of Cody High School who have done particularly well recently and deserve to be recognized. This week I was chosen! When the athletic director (who teases me often) came up and congratulated me, being the nerd I am, I thought he was kidding and thought nothing of it. Later my dad affirmed that he wasn't kidding and that I should go pick up my filly of the week t-shirt. My name has been posted on the tv and announced on the radio, so it does make me feel pretty special. I realize my track coach probably only turned my name in, not because I am a star athlete, but because I needed a boost of self-esteem after the last couple meets. Regardless, I am very happy. And to be quite honest, it did boost my confidence a little...:)

I swear I used sparkling apple juice in the Fondue...

My wife, Fondue, sparkling apple juice, Christmas Vacation(Chevy Chase), and kids in bed early.....Perfect evening.

You've got to look at the close-up of this one.









Stealing ornaments again? How can you get upset at that face?





View from our front door.



Here's a cool shot of Dad. Look closely, the slide is back and the brass has just been ejected.



Shooting clays at 200yrds with the new Remington R-25. Yep, that's Trevor under the blanket.
