The best memory

Of all the great things that happened this Christmas, this is my favorite memory:

My baby boy laughed for the first time. I'm okay with the fact that it wasn't at me, 'cause it was just so damn cute! Here are a few cute pictures I took of the kids the last few days. The first two were taken before the Christmas Eve service at our church, in front of our tree. The other one was at GG & Papa's house on Christmas day.

Some random new pictures and videos!

Don't mind the blurred privates. I just had to show you my chubby boy's thighs.

Our first snow of the year. Taken Thursday. We got less than half an inch.

Here is Sierra's school picture from this year. This is actually a retake. The original was printed off-center.

Here is Tyner's school picture. He's getting so big. :(
Here's a super close-up of Zeke. Is he just not the sweetest thing in the world?

Here is Sierra being man-handled by a boy in her class. This was at her Christmas program. This is what my boy's belly looks like when he's all shlubbed over.

Here is a video of Sierra learning to cross her eyes.

And here's what life is like at our house. Jason trying to scare everyone. And Tyner being weird.

Oh, and notice that red spot on Tyner's cheek? It's Fifth Disease, also known as Slap Cheek. It's a virus. Apparently my son caught it somewhere. And gave it to me. It comes out in adults as joint pain, specifically hands, wrists, feet, and ankles. My left thumb, right wrist, and right foot and ankle have been achy for the last few weeks. It sucks.

So, anyway. Hope you enjoyed these snapshots of life around here. Later!

I made this dish for dinner last night called Marzetti. I got it from It turned out pretty good. I really liked it, Jason said it was good, and the kids actually ate it in a relatively short time. It's a little tangy, from the tomato soup, but it wasn't TOO tangy. It's a pretty basic meal. No veggies or anything in it. So you would need to serve something on the side. I just cut up some carrot sticks. It makes a 9x13 pan worth. We ate about half of it, so there are some leftovers. I'm thinking it's gonna' be even better the next day.

I will type the recipe, so you don't have to click on the link to see it.


1 lb ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1 (10.7z oz) can cream of mushroom soup
1 (10.75 oz) can tomato soup

1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp pepper

8 oz wide egg noodles, cooked and drained

Happy birthday baby!

Happy 6th Birthday, Sierra!!!

He snores like his old man...

Here is a video I took today of Zeke snoring. There isn't actually any picture (it was dark in the room), just sound. Make sure you turn up the volume so you can hear him.

Here is a video I took of Zeke this morning. I was trying to get him to smile, but he wouldn't.

Well, I tried...

Okay, so my new camera came today (yeah, that's my eyebrow back there): I had a good time taking pictures of the kids and me:

And then I shot this:
**I would suggest letting it play all the way through once, to load it all, and then watching it the second time through.**
