Tristan’s Drastic Haircut

Friday, December 22nd, 2017

This afternoon, I got off work a little early and decided to take Tristan to get a haircut.  Many people don’t realize that people are treated differently based on appearance. If you look nice, you get better jobs, make more money, and are generally more successful in life. This isn’t just from the Gospel of Jonathan. This is a fact.

This is Jamie — she is the most awesome Great Clips stylist ever and she is tons of fun!

There was a mess under the chair when we left . . .

Nature Around the House

Spring has sprung at our house and nature is everywhere. Here are some pictures I took in our front yard over the last few days:

And here are some from the backyard:

No Gas

Friday, May 12th, 2017

I always get stressed out when my car says I can only go 10 or so more miles before running out of gas.

Today, however, I didn’t notice the gas light on because I was on the phone handling a work issue. When I looked up, I had zero miles left. I don’t know how long it was like that but I’ve never been that low before. I wonder how long I could drive with zero miles?

My old CR-V hit a major milestone this morning: 200,000 miles!

Next stop: 250,000!

Blue Bath

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

I found these tablets at Kroger that turn your bath water different colors. Rilianne was a little skittish about it.

I wish I had found them a few days ago for April Fools. I would put them in the toilets at work and when people flush — red water, purple water, blue water, etc. It would have really freaked people out!

Kimberlie’s Haircut

Kimberlie donated a MASSIVE amount of hair yesterday.  The pictures tell the story better than I ever could!

Military Town

Saturday, May 14th, 2016

Perhaps one of the hardest parts about living in a military town is seeing your kid’s friends come and go. Mackenzie and Tristan have both made several friends over the past 3 years only to see them move away later.

Over the last few days, our wonderful next door neighbors moved out to follow dad’s military career up to Ohio. Perhaps our paths will cross again someday.


Shortly after, another truck pulled up and unloaded the new residents. They are older and retired, so no new friends for the kids.

After I put Rilianne in the car at the day care this afternoon, I noticed a nice round number on the odometer. I’ve never had a car for this many miles before!
