Dad Gift 2017

This is a little tradition I started a few years ago. Every year, I give my kids one "dad gift" which comes directly from me. With the move and the wedding this year, I made it very easy on myself and took everyone on a quick trip to the happiest place on earth.

The idea of Disneyland is a simple one. It will be a place for people to find happiness and knowledge. It will be a place for parents and children to share pleasant times in one another’s company; a place for teachers and pupils to discover greater ways of understanding and education. Here the older generation can recapture the nostalgia of days gone by, and the younger generation can savor the challenge of the future. - Walt Disney

We had a great day climbing through both parks and building great memories together! I love this crazy bunch.

Thanks Walt!

Christmas 2012

Christmas 2012 was celebrated with both tradition and change this year. Our traditional breakfast of CornedBeef Hash and eggs, Mom's Cinnamon Rolls, Grammy's Biscuits and Gravy and freshly squeezed orange juice was devoured before we even touched a stocking.


We spent Christmas Eve with Kendra's parents, celebrating Jesus' birthday with fun gifts and homemade Candy Cane ice cream! We also enjoyed some new changes this year. The addition of our soon to be daughter-in-law reminded us of the blessings we can expect as our family begins to expand through marriage.

We hope your Christmas was full of joy, memories and delight!
