Less To Go Around

I've noticed a trend occurring. I'm pretty sure I don't like it. I can't say I didn't expect it to happen, but I always thought there would be more time.

I've noticed a trend, in which, there is no more food by the end of dinner. I love leftovers. Sometimes food is better the second day even. However, my children seem to have the same love of food as I do.

This means that even at 3 years old, my daughter is already laying claim to the last hamburger on the plate or the last scoop of potatoes.

This means that my 11-month-old son, who has started to eat table foods, is clenching his fists and grunting in protest at the sight of others eating after he has cleaned the food from his tray.

This means there is just less to go around and it is time to start buying things that say "Family Size" on the box...and then making an extra box for the kids.

Also, on an unrelated topic, my wife is awesome.

Mother's Day Eve

Well it is a beautiful day to rush around and finalize las minute plans for Mothers Day celebrations and the such. I still haven't had an opportunity to take the kids out to shop for a gift and we are leaving for a M-Day Linner soon.

I do have some pretty great moms in my life I have to say though. It is just one of many blessings God has given me. What gift could possible express my deep and profound love for my mother and the mother of my children?

Did someone say garden trinkets and an iTunes giftcard?


Dang it.

I wonder if thinking about getting each of them a spa day really does count.

Only time will tell.

Wait, What Year is This Again?

So, it has been over a year since I've post and wow lot has happened!

Our family has moved out to a rental in West Michigan while we Ramsey our way out of debt.

I have a little boy that is fast approaching his first birthday celebration.

I finally broke down and allowed my wonderful wife to purchase a minivan...twice.

We have switched churches...sort of...

Umm...I bought a pair cargo pants from the Gap Outlet...twice.

Yeah, I swear more things have happened since I last posted but for the life of me I just can't think of anything tonight. Perhaps I should have written some of that stuff down so I'd have like, you know, a record of cool moments in my life and the life of my family.

Nice work on updating our blog, me! How about posting at least something to keep our brain from completely oozing out of our ears would ya?

What's that? Well, of course we can have a snack first...and watch some more Top Gear.
