We Love Andrew, Silly Cat, and Pinewood Derby

Joey and Andrew love each other.

And Megan and Andrew love each other.
We caught this picture of the cat trying to get into the bird house. Why doesn't she just go eat mice??
Uh, oh! I'm busted!
Joey had his first Pinewood Derby. "He" made this car (with just a little help from Dad and Ryan). Isn't it a beaut?

All of his major awards. He took second place in the race and got the award for Best Use of Sports Logo. He had a great time. He loves scouts.

Same old, same old

I haven't forgotten my blog. It's just that there hasn't been anything out of the ordinary going on since Christmas, except for some preliminary planning for a big event that will take place in a few months; more details to come later.

What a Merry Christmas!!

We had a wonderful Christmas. The only thing that would have made it better would have been if Jessica and TJ could have been here. We had Christmas Eve dinner at Angela and Ryan's, then had a little Christmas program put on by Megan, Joey and Andrew (with help from Angela). On Christmas morning we woke up relatively late (about 7:00) and opened presents. Joey was so happy when he got his air-soft pistol. Later, Jake brought over his snow mobiles and we had a great time racing around the fields. I made us a big Christmas dinner to top off the day. I did have a hard time on Christmas Eve missing my "growing up" family, knowing they were all together and I was far away from them all. But we made up for that on New Year's Eve with a fun party at Leslie's (thanks, Les!).

Megan wearing one of her princess dresses we gave her. So cute! The dresses came in a cute little pink trunk, with slippers, tiaras and necklaces included.
Andrew was such a good baby!
Mindy on the snow mobile.

Joey is a little excited.
