Too Funny

Emmit you fill our house with so much laughter and we are so very thankful for it.
When did you become so funny?

 Emmit with make up on. Yes he has started to let Grace apply make up on him. And Grace well she is pretty good at doing his make up.

 Making funny faces with dad.
 Allowing Tug Boat to open mouth kiss you. OK so this might be a little over the top, but you LOVE it.

 You are into getting your picture taking and even go as far as asking for your photo and then you make a cheese smile like this.
Your really into Batman and only by the aggressive way you throw your body around the house I think you think that he is a bad guy.

Oh Emmit we love you silly.


I know...

It's pretty exciting when that bright ball of light high in the sky is out on a clear blue day on the beautiful island of Fidalgo.
Can't wait for the weekend...


We crashed the dash...

We still got it Josh.

This past Saturday Josh and I participated in the annual St. Pats Dash in Seattle.

It was fun.

It was raining.

It was snowing.

It was Josh and I taking on the big city and that beer garden together.

We will do it again.

Thank you babe for bringing on the fun this weekend.

I'm A God Mother

Dear Camilla Joy,

It is with great honor that I became your god mother on Sunday.

When I think about what this means to me I think about how I will be like an aunt to you, maybe even that cool aunt that sneaks you sips of her drinks and lets you drive the car.

But really what I think of most is how lucky I am that your parents think that much of me to have me be your god mother.

To be honest Camilla, I don’t know much about the bible. Perhaps we will learn more together. But what I do know is how to appreciate the small things in life and how important it is to treat people with kindness and respect.

Oh Camilla Joy it’s going to be one heck of a ride. Hold on tight sweet cheeks, because you are connected to me my little sack of potatoes.

Love You,

You’re Fairy God Mother!


Calling All Super Hero's

Calling all super hero's!!!

Today we had super hero boot camp at APRD.
We did some basic training.
Made cuffs and mask.
Went on a adventure.
Had some snack and played super hero bingo with marshmallows.

Just another day on the job...


Art Show

 Grace had her art on display in the Anacortes School District Art Show. She was pretty proud.

 The name on her art is "Cheetah". Oh to be 5 again.
 Showing dad all of her friends art work.
 Yup, you would think that this just all went straight to her head...
 Yeah we know Grace. This is year two for you to be in the show.
 There are some very talented little artist. And Emmit (see photo below) they would appreciate if you DID NOT TOUCH!!!

True that statement above.

Thank you John Wooden for this

"Peace of mind attained only through self-satisfaction and knowing you made the effort to do the best of which you are capable. I believe that is true. If you make the effort to do the best of what you are capable, trying to improve the situation that exists for you, I think that is success and I do not think others can judge that."- John Wooden


60 & 59
