Three's Company

For those of you who know Dad, you know the irony in this picture...

They love him. Skylar tries almost every night to sneak into bed with him. The other night we couldn't find the dogs. We were looking everywhere. Suddenly we both looked at each other and said "Uh Oh"........sure enough they were all comfy curled up with Dad. :-)

The boys participated in their first shooting competition. Grandpa Dick entered them in a shooting competition at his club. They were the only kids. They did really well.... I guess Grandpa passed his skills down to them. Daddy isn't too bad either.

Y is for YELLOW

I am participating in Jenny Matlock's Alphabe Thursday....

Jenny Matlock

Today's letter is Y.

Yellow is my son Alex's favorite color. It has been for a long time. I think it matches him perfectly. He's bright and sunny. It was pink until he was old enough figure out it wasn't cool for a boy to like pink. We can probably thank is big brother for that.

A poem for Alex

Y = young.... he is my baby (even though he's almost in the double digits)

E = edge.... Alex lives "on the edge", always ready for anything

L = loving... it may sound simple but Alex is very loving... he has a tender heart with people, animals and every living thing.

L = Labor Day.. Alex was a labor day weekend baby. His birthday always falls around labor day

O = olives.. this boys loves olives, especially black

W= water.. he loves the water and always has. If there is a puddle, creek, swimming pool, hose anything water related around he will be there!
