Love this!

via by Pete Wilson by Pete Wilson on 11/20/09


Listen, I know men are weird. I know you ladies often wonder what in the world attracted you to us in the first place. You wonder…

-Why do men always have to buy the biggest and most expensive version of everything? We’re utterly consumed by the latest weed-eater, shopvac, knife, or electronic gadget.

-Why do men always think they can fix things? I’m sure women often wonder why we haven’t figured out after a hundred failed attempts this just isn’t our gift. While we can take apart everything from the TV to the garbage disposal, our expertise usually fails us when we go to put something back together. At this point we’re generally satisfied to leave it in pieces spread out all over the kitchen counter for weeks at a time.

-Why are men fascinated with video games? I believe most women are generally united in their disgust that men can throw so much of their life away playing a stupid video game until the wee hours of the morning. Somehow they don’t understand that this electronic therapy is our version of a day at the spa.

-Why do men think they’re so funny? While most women would say they desire a man with a good sense of humor that generally means something different than a guy whose own bodily noises can make him laugh so hard he almost pees in his pants.


Ladies, I know we have some complexities but nothing, and I mean nothing, compares to the crazy obsession you grown women have with vampires. I know, I know, it’s perfectly healthy and normal to be 34 and wearing a “Team Edward” t-shirt while waiting in ridiculously long lines at the theater. I mean who wouldn’t be into pasty white men who sparkle and have really sharp teeth?

Please be patient with us ignorant men as we try to figure out how in the heck lusting after these immortal stalkers who are lured in by the scent of your “sweet blood” and have to fight the desire to eat you for a snack is somehow romantic.

But don’t worry about us. While you’re at the movies this weekend we’ll be at home fixing things, playing video games until late at night, and still laughing at our own bodily noises. Go Team Edward! :)

Edward JACOB brought Baby Reese

WARNING: There's always the risk with a really good girl's night out that someone WILL go into labor!

Less than 24 hours from our movie night and Baby Reese finally arrived!

Steph and I dashed up to see her this afternoon and she is beautiful! She has red hair and is the picture of her new daddy!

...when I think of where we were just a couple of years ago, San...She is such an unexpected miracle, right? I couldn't be more happy if she were my own.

So here are some debut pics from Aunt Tee Tee. You will be able to tell from the video clip that all the talking to her in Sandy's belly was totally successful! She completely knew me right away!

*sigh* I do love a baby...

The traditional Aunt Tee Tee baby blanket!

"New Moon"...and Old Friends

I'll briefly admit it despite your mocking...

I love the Twilight series.

I'm 35.

I'm married.

(I still love them!)

SO...Sadly, when my BFF's birthday was lost to a bad bout of morning sickness, she promised me that we would have our birthday night out when the second twilight movie premiered.

To our GREAT SHOCK, Sandy STILL has not pushed that baby out so YYEEAAHH....she got to go with us. (And her sweetie, James, who was man of the night! Thanks, Mr. Chauffeur!)

I made sure to run out this afternoon and get shirts for Steph and I. Sorry, big belly Twilight shirts available! Steph is totally "Team Edward" and I'm cheering "Team Jacob". Who wants a perfect, pale looking man that looks like he has an eating disorder. I'll take a grizzly guy any day...ruff, ruff! (Totally thinking of you Matt, really!)

So, here is a preview of our night. much fun, girls! I love ya'!

Bye, Bye, Baby Bump!

This week Josiah finally said good-bye to the little hernia above his belly button that we have long since called the "Baby Bump". He was born with it and while I was mysteriously told by a couple pediatricians that I sincerely trust that it would some day "go away"...this really doesn't seem to be the case.

It started to cause him some pain this fall and we decided to get a second opinion from a surgeon. On Wednesday, they took him in to repair it.

This was very, very, very hard for a parent. Watching them roll away from you and having to leave them no matter what the procedure is, is so difficult. But, we prayed with him and told him to go an enjoy another one of life's BIG adventures.

Like many people feel when they emerge from a big, life adventure, he looked up at me as I held him in the hospital room and said, "I wish it never would've happened!" *sigh*

But, he's up and at it and I'm trying to keep him calm per Doc's orders. TWO WEEKS. How am I going to manage that?

I thank the Lord for watching over my baby and keeping him safe. He is my sweet monkey!

Halloween 2009

"All Harmless family members must participate!"

And, I won this year as everyone went along with my command!

Matt was a...hmmm, I'm not sure how to title him without it potentially being offensive...I guess you can decided what he was! I was an 80's homecoming queen. Jo was a skeleton guy AGAIN...I'm getting worried about his skeletal infatuation! Hopefully, he's interested in becoming a radiologist or something! And, Sam went as himself, basically! Computer Nerd!

Good times had by all!
