Phinally Phillies are World Champions again

For only the second time ever, the Phillies are World Champions. Hats off to the Rays and a great season. WOW!! It is great. I watched as my wife's Steelers and my friend Ron's Colts have won the Super Bowl and was really happy for them. However, to finally see Philly win a world championship is great!!! Now if the Eagles could just follow suit. :-)

Anna's 1st day of Kindergarten

Okay only 2 posts

Okay it is getting late already so I am just going to cut it to two posts tonight. The pictures took too long to load. So I will give a brief update. As of about 2 weeks ago I am now officially a computer tech at ECR. See my geeky new picture of me and the other techs at

The girls have turned 5 and 3 now. It seemed like they were 4 and 2 forever. Amber is doing well and as of now it looks as if we are having another girl in October. Still trying to pick a name. Post any good ideas you may have we are open for some suggestions. Julianna will be starting Kindergarten this year and she is a little worried about it. She is plenty smart enough, but she is just worried about having a lot more kids in her class and them all liking her.

She is still a little trying at times and bed time is still a bit of a hassle. Ella is almost fully potty trained which is a great blessing. Other wise we are all healthy and doing well which is the most you can really ask for. I will hurry and post one last quick picture of the girls from February in their matching Dora outfits from Grammy.

Catching up

Wow, been so long since I have blogged anything. I am going to try to get a couple entries in tonight and catch you up on what has been going on. I thing I will start with my trip to yet another ball park. Went to see Yankee stadium before they tear it down this year. It as cool and all, but it was no Wringley Field. Here are some pics I took while I was there.

Of courese the picture with me and the scoreboard

Yikes. Once again I have left 3 months go by with out any updates. In 3 months, Ella has turned 3, my job has changed, I have been to Yankee Stadium and we have found out we are most likely having a third girl. I will try to post some pictures soon of all these events. Hope everyone is doing well. Thanks for checking in.

5 years old

I cannot believe it. My little girl is 5 years old today. She is not exactly little any more. She is about 3' 7" already. Her hair is almost half as long. :-) She can write all her letters in capitals and lower case. She can read simple books. She can count to a 100 and do some simple adding. I know she is not the smartest girl in the world, however, I think I am not just being a proud parent when I say she is a very smart girl.

She had a great birthday weekend. We spent the weekend at her great grandma's house and went to an Easter celebration after church on Sunday with 55 relatives. We had lunch and Easter egg hunts. One for the babies, 2 and younger, one for the pre-schoolers and one for the rest of us from ages 16 to 87. It was a great time.

So we have a 5 year old, and Ella is only a month and half away from being 3. It will be quite an exciting time to add a third one come October. Yep, we are pregnant again. We are already further along than we were with the last one. Everything is going well this time. We know because Amber is really sick this time.

We will try to get Amber to start her own blog that will post where we are along the way. She loves to watch other people's blogs that show that so hopefully we can get her to do one too. I will be sure to post a link once I talk her into it. Until then, thanks for stopping by. Hope you all had a great Easter too!!

The Story of Stuff

This lady seems a bit too happy for the subject matter she is talking about, but most of what she said is more true than we are willing to admit. I watched it and I realized I need to reevaluate many things I do. It won't be easy but I ask you to join me and to send this story to your friends as well. Be sure to check out the 10 ways to make a difference and do your best to do as many as you can. The more of us who do the more we can help break the cycle.

It is a new year

Well it is a new year and my first blog of the year. I have a friend who has returned to blogging after 3 months of silence and has encouraged me to get back to my blogging.

The holidays were different this year. We went only to Amber's family for Christmas and did my family's Christmas at Thanksgiving. Which was quite an experience has you have probably already read. Still trying to make a decision about trying again or not. The girls have been a little trying at times and trying to decide whether or not to throw a third one into the mix is kind of hard.

We have also had plumbing problems this year. What we thought was once fixed seems not to be now. Ugh!!

We had the girls pictures taken by an Antiquities company that does the sepia type of photos. I will try to get some of them posted. They are really cute.

Well hope everyone else is having a good new year. Don't forget Lent is just around the corner. This Wednesday February 6th is Ash Wednesday. If you have any interesting ideas for Lent, leave me a comment. I am always look for some more unique ways to prepare for Easter.
