    No Computer for 5 Days


    You miss a lot of blogging opportunities when you don’t have a computer for 5 days so this is me making up for that. As a side note – I do have a cleaner house after not having a computer.

    Cali finally gave us her first smiles!



    My Brother Joel, Sister Tracie and her Husband John came over last Friday. We had a Waffle Brunch and then they took Benji and Packer to Kangaroo Zoo and I got to stay home and relax/clean. They took Lots of pictures and it looks like they had lots of fun. Benj and Pack love having so many aunts and uncles!

    We had an arcade and video game night with some friends and family. We had 4 or 5 different stations with arcade games, old school Nintendo, XBox, and Wii. Some of the favorite games were Dr. Mario, Tysons PunchOut, Brain Teaser, Ms. Pac Man, Fusion Frenzy and Excitebike. It was fun, especially when I beat Than at Dr. Mario! (he beat me 3 times before that though).

    Sean (Bens old roommate) and Erika Thal stayed for a slumber Party. We let the kids stay up entirely too late but we hadn’t seen them for forever so it was worth it. Benji and Carter played Super Heroes and Ping Pong all night and Packer and Kenzie did their own thing. We had a great time catching up with them. Thanks for coming guys!

    His Favorite Spot…

    This is our driveway. It is Danger. The snow came during Christmas Vacation and we haven’t been able to catch up. We’ve just been catapulting our vehicles over the ice baracade to get in and out! The neighbors all have nice clear driveways and side walks but ours is frozen solid. (Someone has to have the North Facing House that is always shaded so it might as well be us). We did venture across the street the other day and the temperature was atleast 15 degrees warmer on that side! So we rode bikes and enjoyed a little bit of sunshine!

    Cali is going through a fussy stage the past week. Every night around dinner time until midnightish she is fussy and wants to be held and bounced and fed. She usually doesn’t fall asleep and stay asleep until I do… hopefully it is just a stage but in the meantime I am going to change my eating habits to see if that helps.



    This is where you will find my boys right now and most mornings. They love to watch their show while they drink their milk and eat cereal in a bag. Mom loves this time because it’s nice to shower without company and get things going for the day.
