Grandpa Comes to Town

The boys got to spend the weekend with Dan's dad and of course Daniel's grandpa.  They have his name for their middle name, Paul.  Since he grew up in ND and went to college in Grand Forks, its a pretty familiar town for him.

I had to work, but all of the guys had fun driving around town and also working on repair projects at him.  They were able to finally get our nice baby gate installed at the bottom of the stairs! 

Daniel looks so much like his dad and grandpa, and he gets his curly hair from Paul.  He really likes playing with grandpa too!

One Year Ago

I have been backing up my photos and videos because I am switching computers, and I came across this video from last year.  So much has changed, and yet he is still himself.  This video is a favorite of mine.  Enjoy!

Busy, Busy

This time of year is usually pretty hard to get through, and this winter has thrown a lot of rough weather at us.  Up here in Grand Forks, we have had plenty of snow, (yes, I know the rest of the country has as well) but the worst has been the cold.  Day after day after day of below zero cold.  It just saps energy and gets in your brain.

But the show must go on, and this winter I have plenty to keep me from feeling too blue.  I have classes 4 days a week, bowling on Tuesday nights, and work on Saturday and Sunday.  At home I am still flying with FlyLady, keeping a close eye on my fast moving son and working on my scrapbooking and card making.  Whew!

Tonight was a pretty awesome example of how well I am flying at home.  We had invited some friends over with very little notice, and then found it wouldn't work out.  However, I had all of the ingredients for this special dinner, so this morning, we asked another couple over.  With a little touching up last night and one hour between classes today, I was able to have my home ready for guests.  We had a lot of fun visiting, and I was able to focus on a great meal without stressing out about the house!
