New Purpose in 2011

I’ve had my blog since early 2009, but I have never been really serious about blogging.  Until today, I have mostly shared about my personal life to include interesting situations, professional & personal accomplishments, and random thoughts. Obviously that has not kept me motivated enough to write on a regular basis, so I am mixing […]

Nine Months Old

It’s hard to believe another three months have passed!  She is growing SO fast, it’s hard to keep up! To answer your main question right away, no…..she is not crawling yet….but she is VERY close.  She will get up on all fours and rock back and forth, but she hasn’t quite worked out the logistics […]

Six Months Later

I was doing regular maintenance on the site the other day when I saw it was over 180 days since my last post. When I looked back to see what the last post was, I saw it was the directions & other information I posted for Christina Joy’s baby shower. It’s hard to believe it […]

A Century of Thanksgiving

I know we are almost to Christmas & Thanksgiving seesm like a distant memory, but I really wanted to share what is a special memory for our family….

This ultrasound was by far the most breath-taking.  I was absolutely amazed at the detail of what […]

Skunked!

Before I start on the actual skunk story, let me give you some circumstances that lead up to the skunking. My wife, Candace, is currently pregnant; and she has a cast on the lower half of her right leg from an ankle injury. She has been very graceful in enduring the cast for the last […]

Ultrasound #3

So we are just over 16 weeks and we had our third ultrasound this past Tuesday afternoon.  By now, the surreal feelingshave worn off a bit and I now grow more excited as each week passes.  We are constantly asked, “What do you want to have?”  The answers sound so coy, but they are the […]

Ultrasound #1

Even though we are past the first trimester, I thought I would reflect on how it felt to see a life I helped create for the first time. Candace (my wife) is an extremely talented dancer, choreographer, and singer….so it was no surprise that our little one was already dancing the very first time we […]
