Jadon and I had a pretty intense game of one-on-one going on today. Who won? I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…

Maple Leaf Parade (2010 Edition)
A couple weekends ago we went to the annual Maple Leaf Parade in Carthage, MO. It’s a fairly big deal in our neck of the woods and we have gone every year for as long as I can remember. The parade is always good, but at this point it’s just as much about the traditionContinue reading “Maple Leaf Parade (2010 Edition)”
Well, That Didn’t Take Long
You may have heard that a couple months ago Daphne, Jadon, and I decided to move from Joplin, MO to Loveland, CO.

Less than one week from today we will be moving to Colorado. Wow. I’m not sure what to think, what to write, or even what to do. I think the reality of it is starting to set in. For the first time in my life, I am going to be making my permanent residence outsideContinue reading “From MO To CO”
Ashley’s First Snowman
This is our adopted Mississipian Ashley with his very first snowman. This is from a while back, but today’s Spring snow reminded me of it. It may not be a perfect snowman, but by golly he’s proud of it! And we are proud of you ‘Shley!
