Thanks Bear, for reminding me that blogs aren't best stagnant. :) You are so much better than me at blogging. So...the kids got haircuts today (they aren't real kids, they are dogs.) They just got their fringe cut, and their gooby little eyes, but it makes them look like a million bucks!
We got yelled at by an old man for playing airsoft up at the cabin. Just a great reminder that grumpy old people suck balls. :) Note to self....don't be a grumpy old person. Airsoft is still fun though, and it keeps me from getting too fat. It also keeps you on your toes a bit. Here are a couple photos from the Hobble Creek game. Courtesy of

Basement Update

So it’s been awhile since our last basement update. Things went pretty slow over the winter due to lack of motivation. I have been putting some hours in over the past couple weeks; a lot of the drywall is up now, only a few panels left on the walls and some trim work around the windows. I also have to frame out an arch for the kids playroom entrance.

Here is a picture of the main room (yes it's a mess, construction is and I spend so much time cleaning, only to have it messy 10 minutes later so I've given up doing it everyday) This is a panorama that I took freehand so it's a little distorted, but you can see most of the room.

Here is the "small" room. (Panoramic)

And finally the bathroom (Panoramic, it's really distorted)

"Ouvrie bouchue"

I just got back from Haiti for a humaitarian trip with IASK (, and it was fantastic!!! We had a line every day for the dental clinic, we had a fantastic group, and we did a lot of good. Hopefully making a difference in people's lives. I learned a lot of creole, and ate lots of rice and hot stuff (that was un-identifiable), and got to chill with my favotire cousin whitney. What a fantastic trip!!!

Ocean with her FAVORITE aunt and uncle :)

Can you guess who the favorite Aunt and Uncle are? Probably us cause we're so much fun, and we have a tepee in our front room, and we have dogs that are small enough to pick up, and small enough to not be scary, and we don't have any kids of our own to spoil rotten, so we spoil the grandkids rotten!

So tonight Emily and I went on a "Date". Ha, that sounds so funny. We went to the train show at Thanksgiving point and saw a lot of cool model trains. It brings back some good memories. There was an exhibit that had American Flier trains, as I was looking around at the different trains, one rolled by and caught my eye. It was an old one from the early to mid fifties, exactly like my dads. It even has the exact same smell from the smoke. I had to have spent countless hours as a child laying on my stomach in my diaper, playing with Dad's train.

Emily and I are going to make a train board in our spare time. To start things out we bought a new Engine and some cars and some track because it was super cheap. And Emily bought a little set of pigs. This is an N Scale train. It's like and inch and a half tall, if that. It's awesome.
