About Me

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Haircuts, Water and Birthday!

Well, Jeremy is officially 23... no I'm kidding, he is a decade older then that! But he is still one hot daddy... We had a fun party with some friends which was then followed by haircuts. Everyone got a trim, Emma a bit more then just a trim. Her natural curls were giving me such a headache that I decided that I would just cut off the dead stuff. She of course still looks adorable and the curl is still there! Myself, I had a good chop job done. Mindy is amazing with hair and I love it!! We went swimming, both at the pool and just in the creek - water is endless fun!

The kids and I went with my parents to help move my brother Mackenzie and his wife Jenny to their new home in Pennsylvania. It was a 9 day trip that took us across the country! It was fun, educational in many ways and as always - memorable...
