just one

here is one of the many reasons that i love kasey...kasey went to wyoming this weekend with some friends to hunt some geese. but before he left on friday after noon he left me little notes all over the house! i'm still finding them! the best one was the one that i found under the toilet lid! but they were in almost every drawer, in the shower, in the bed, in my book, on the computer..... everywhere! i found myself running all over the house looking for more that night! i love you kb!

hello blue eyes

paul newman 1925-2008
one of my most favorite actors of all time.... he is one good lookin guy and he makes my mom giggle. nevermind that right after seeing the movie 'cool hand luke' in 1967, in the theater, she was determined to name her first born after him in that role and did.
my top picks... in no real order... cool hand luke cat on a hot tin roof butch cassidy long hot summer the sting
known in college for bar fights after his football games, his baby blue eyes, simple smile and over 60 movies that he acted in and more that he directed and produced he was a busy, talented, well known actor. and what actor in hollywood could even come close to his 50 year marriage to joanne woodward. what he said about his wife, 'if i have a steak dinner at home, why would i go out for hamburger'. hats off to you pauly. we'll miss you!

father to son part 1

so i came across this book at the bookstore back home and kasey and i have been reading it... i thought that it might be fun to share bits of it through out the rest of the year and when the boy gets here... we giggle.

here are the five important keys...

turning a boy into a man is a man's job. since the begining of time, it's been up to a father to make his son responsible. kind. courageous. honorable.
a young boy doesn't come with instructions. he comes with boundless love and an adventurous spirit. but the journey to manhood begins very early... the first time he looks at his dad and thinks, "i want to be like him."

be around.

be his father, not his friend. if you don't understand the difference, imagine his confusion when you must discipline him.

be a good husband. show his mom respect at all times.

be home for dinner.

be his hero.

until next time...

let me explain

sorry i haven't been blogging lately...
with trying to finish the office/the boys room we have been busy.
with that comes rewiring the computer from one side othe house to the other...
meaning kasey in the crawl space in the basement...
mudding, taping, painting, moving furniture...
and then finally getting the computer hooked up and finding out that i have missed 487 new posts on my google reader... i'm sorry for neglecting you all :)
remember this? so this is jos old room that is connected to ours. after finishing her new room and moving her to the other side of the house last christmas, we were able to start working on the office... and this past may found out that we were having a new addition, we had to get it really get it done. so we tackled it this past weekend.
so anyway, it turned into this...

happy birthday jord!

wow, i just can't believe that jo turned 6 yesterday!
she is growing up way, way, way, to fast!she has figured out 'the mirror'. any mirror, or anything that gives a reflection, she has noticed. i catch her posing, playing with her hair, dancing, blowing kisses and well just talking to herself.
cuddler. she still has to have her cozy time with dad on the couch and give everyone a hug before she goes anywhere.
sweet talker. she can get anyone to do anything, especially grandma mary. the rest of us are on to her. and when we have her just about figured out, we'll have to start all over again!
drama queen. she can cry on demand, laugh on demand... and has a wild teenage imagination. i'm scared, she tries to get me to have girl talk with her to talk about boys. i get her to stop but i laugh every time.
miss independent. never mind trying to help her with something, she'll put up a fight and do it herself until its done, or she gets frustrated and walks away.
strong. she can take kasey down with her big guns. throws some good punches, kicks your butt, and loves to laugh about it. i like it cause she comes in handy when it's time to carry the grocery's in, and dad likes it cause she just flat out amazes him.
