I Am Not Only The President...

Looks like Porter needs to join the Hair Club For Men...or babies. It is amazing what a difference 5 months can make.

Finally Finished

It only took nine months but I finally got the french doors finished in the living room. Scraping paint off of glass with a razor blade is not as easy as one would think. Here are a few pictures of Porter too just for fun.

My Two Gifts

I've had a wonderful birthday today. Porter and I met John downtown for a nice lunch outside at Mary's Restaurant. The garden looked great with all the tulips in bloom. I can't believe that they didn't die from the snow. We even got a free dessert because the waitress felt bad that the service was slow. Their brownie a la mode is to die for! Both of my boys gave me presents for my birthday. I just thought I would share their gifts. Can you tell which one is John's and which one is Porter's?

Happy Birthday

Happy birthday mommy. So it is Maria's first birthday as a mom and I wanted to make it a special one. She has wanted one of those baby collages for a while now so I decided I would make one for her. Here are a few of the pictures I included.

Its all Fun and Games Until...

So as you may have noticed, we got some snow on Sunday. What may not be so evident from the previous post is that shortly after I made that post, our power went out, for two days. Thats right, two days. After a very sketchy trip up the driveway we packed up and went to David and Sarah's house since they still had power. There were only about 20 houses on our street that lost power and of course we were one. On top of all that Porter came down with his first ear infection. He had a fever and we took him into the doctor and he gave us the good news. Gabe got to rough it in the cold by himself while we slept at David's but he did not seem to mind too much. On a side note, I did get the tv up on the wall and I even managed to hide the wires without causing too much destruction. At least it gave me an excuse to buy a new 8" drill bit.

Thanks to uncle Richard for the new clothes. This is the only one he fits in right now but check back soon to see the others.

Porter's First Snow

Finally, after a couple of close calls, we got snow. There has been snow both in Greenville and Sumter but we missed it both times. Here are some pictures.
