Warming up...

In preparation for November (see post below), I'm going to do a little warm-up in the next few days and try to post three or four times before the challenge starts.
If you haven't wandered over to Sunny & Brandon's blog in a while, click on over and look at their little cuties (soon to be one year old). Here's a picture I stole from their most recent post... If you don't think these are some of the most adorable children, you probably need to go see your optometrist. Happy Thursday (especially for us Grey's Anatomy fans - tonight we get a double dose).

Challenge accepted

Mighty Girl posted a challenge she heard about over at Fussy for National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo). I'm taking the challenge although I might fail horribly at it. Since that is my fear, I'm hoping that my recent purchase of Maggie Mason's (aka Mighty Girl) book, No One Cares What You Had for Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog, will help me out with some inspiration for the 30 posts I just committed to. So, my faithful readers, all two of you, if I fail to post on a day in November, please remind me, gently or not-so-gently, to get my butt in gear and post something.

POTW...rock 'n' roll boy

Okay, so I have a really good excuse for not posting last week. Our dog, Molly, got hit by a car and died. We only had her for a little over a year, but she found her way into all our hearts and is dearly missed. I caught myself looking out the back window for her as I folded clothes this afternoon. I know what we are dealing with is not nearly so hard as losing a human family member, but it's still difficult. Wesley and I both have shed our fair share of tears in the last few days.
On a happier note, we want to say Congratulations to Jody & Heather on their recent marriage. For those of you who don't know already, Jody is Wesley's father. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of them to post on here.
What I do have a picture of is a very cool lil dude who either wants to grow up to be a "rockstar" or a "policeman." Seriously, if you ask him what he wants to be when he grows up, he'll say a policeman, but every now and then he'll volunteer out of the blue that he wants to be a rockstar. The rockstar always cracks me up. Of course, I think he can be anything he wants to be. I was trying to get a good picture of him the other day to use instead of his school picture to give to family (he always has his fake smile on in those) - didn't get a good one for that purpose but did get some little gems like these...
I'm jealous of his shoes...want me some just like em' but can't find them anywhere

rock on lil' buddy

showing off his shoes...

a t-shirt he picked out because it was "cool" - I agree
