Afternoon in the Snow


After church and lunch today, Will, Drew and I bundled up for some fun time enjoying Tulsa's latest 6 inches of snow. Unfortunately, it was too cold to make a snowman, the snow just wouldn't clump together well enough. But, we were still able to make some snowballs, have a snowball fight, and run around doing all kinds of silly stuff. In the end, we were all cold and tired and had a great time!

Napping Buddies


With Drew's napping days long gone and Will moving into an every-other-day habit, Landon has become my newest napping buddy.

Grilled Steaks


Tonight, I cooked steaks out on the grill. They looked so good I had to snap a picture. They tasted even better! My mouth is watering as I write this just remembering how good they were. I've explained before how much a good steak means to me...here's to you Spiv.

Drew had his very first piano lesson today. We think we found a really good teacher. Drew is excited about playing and very serious about practicing. It is so wonderful to hear him playing and since I'm writing about this after-the-fact, I can say how surprising it is that he is progressing so fast. Hopefully he'll have fond memories of learning to play.

The musical notes in the photograph are not photoshoped. They are the result of some Christmas lights hanging in the background and a note shaped filter which creates the bokeh effect of the same shape. I used the same technique with a star shaped filter in my New Year's Eve photos of the boys.

Tonight Mary made the most incredible potato soup...I had three bowls! It looked so good I grabbed the camera and Mary said that if she knew I was going to take a picture she would have garnished it nicer. How about that! The photo, which looks pretty appetizing to me, is just her plain old, put together an ordinary meal, style. It's good being married to someone who can cook! I hope the boys...when they grow out of their macaroni and cheese, chicken nuggets and cheese pizza phase...will appreciate what a great cook they have for a mother.

The boys got the Lego Castle Troll Warship (7048) for Christmas. We were a little hesitant to crack it open since it is officially for ages 7-14 with 493 pieces. However, six-year-old Drew is always ready for a new challenge and spent just two days of remarkable concentration and sticktoitiveness to put it together with remarkably little help. Both he and Will have had a great time playing with it and putting it back together as it takes a beating from the play. It was a great and much appreciated gift!

Landon Reading?


I turned the corner to see 8 month old Landon looking at a cloth book, properly oriented, propped up against a stuffed toy...apparently reading. I exclaimed, "Ha! Caught you, you can read can't you?!" Of course, Landon resumed his ruse of being a typical infant with no plans for world domination by babbling, rolling over and drooling. Nice try Stewie, I'm on to you!

Lego iPhone App

On December 31st I was sitting in a day long CLE (continuing legal education)...bored and trying to kill time, I surfed the iPhone application store and came across the free Lego iPhone App.


Will made of Lego studs.


Drew made of Lego studs. After the jump, a self-portrait I took during the CLE.

We celebrated New Year's Day by going sledding...in our front yard. When i shoveled the snow on our driveway after our Christmas Eve snow storm, I put all the snow in one place building up a nice pile several feet high.


Since it has been so cold lately the pile of snow remained and today we made great use of it as the boys sled down our man-made hill (with a little help from Daddy getting them started at the top).


As you can see, Will and Drew had a great time sledding!


Afterward, Mama made hot chocolate for a perfect start to the new year.
