Last weekend

The past week has been a good fast week. I am going to let some pictures tell the story.
Well to start the story, we went to see our friend Gro in her final Step Sing last weekend. There is NO way that I can put in to words what Step Sing is, so unless you went there or have heard of it all you get is the name of the event. We had a great time hanging out with Gro and her boyfriend Grant. We are very excited that God put Gro and Grant together and we are also glad that we like being around them together. Here is Gro and Grant together.

This is a picture of Grant and his secret lover.

We also got to hang out with our friend Christine and made a new friend with her man Austin. Again we found ourselves excited about the guy that God has put in one of our close friends. Austin seems to be a great fit for Christine.

Here is a shot of them and us with Christine.

We got to eat lunch at a pretty good place called ‘Jacksons’ and I had a good breakfast pizza. I enjoyed it a lot. Here is me and my bride after lunch.

It was a great weekend away. I always love it when C and I get away for a bit, just the 2 of us.

Finally I close with this. My boy is swinging left handed!!!! How awesome is that! My uncle Tim was a great baseball player and he threw right and would bat lefty. So, I am hoping L will be doing the same. Who knows? This is a picture of L swinging a short stick at a golf ball. Well actually I am not going to post the picture because one of the blog C and I read had perverts download pictures of her boys in diapers. I will get a clothed picture of him up soon.

Wednesday, February 13, 2008


So I figured I would share a few things that probably most of you don’t know about me.

My guilty pleasures or just random things about me:

1) I always stop to watch churches when I see one on TV
2) I also tend to stop and watch Disney movies.
3) Watching online church services is fun for me.
4) I dip my PBJ in chicken noodle soup.
5) My mom and dad call me bud. Not sure why but they do. I call my boy buddy.
6) The fear of failure is a motivator for me.
7) If I could go anywhere on vacation I would go to Fiji, not sure why tho.
8) I hate when you hold hands to pray and my hands start to sweat. I hate that.
9) I would like a Tattoo but there isn’t one I would love to have forever.
10) I am almost 30 and I still love video games.
11) I bowled a 288 on wii bowling
12) L loves watching the Wii.
13) I love music award shows. I always have. When I was little I used to record them and watch them over and over again. I still watch them…just not over and over again.
14) I have a bunch of friends that are sick right now…I guess I don’t need to make out with friends…wait, one of those friends lives in long beach and the other in Marietta.
15) Microsoft Windows is, um how do I say it kindly, lame.
16) I still miss playing baseball. Seeing a nice baseball field still gives me a strange feeling in my stomach.
17) Some of my favorite memories growing up came from my summers at Smoky Mountain Church Camp now called Bridgemont Camp.
18) Phil Vandermeer is still one of the funniest guys I know.
19) When my boy grows up I hope he gives his life away to people.
20) I love being on a team. Its just great to be on a team that everyone is rowing the same direction.
21) I love it when my bride makes me laugh. Which happens often.
22) My boy's smile.
23) YHC, suite 13 was one of the best living arrangements ever.
24) Adam and Ryan were great roommates…I wish I would have spent more time with you guys…freaking girls.
25) I wish we had the cash to go to Chops for v-day.

That’s enough for now.

Song of the week

Why should I fear? by Red Mountain Music.
I love this song. We are doing it this Sunday.
I really think if you don't own a Red Mountain CD and you think you know the best church music, you are mistaken. Go buy all 3 Gadsby cds and consider your self enlightened.

The day is over

Well no one is totally well in my house still. I am the best off, C is the worst of and L is somewhere in the middle. on with the blog.
So I am playing electric again this week. How do you feel about that? I mean I am an acoustic rhythm guy. And this week I am trying to be Clint Wells. Well honestly most people who read my blog probably don’t know who Clint is. He is the main guitarist on for red Mountain Music. He is great. I haven’t actually met him though. I check in on his blog, swapped some email and will finally meet him in late march. My friends the Drivers are coming back in town to sing and play with us. We are playing “why should I fear?” this week and I am playing electric on the song. I am learning a lot about tone and how to get different sounds out of an electric. I am barrowing Ryan Kecks G&L guitar, it kind of looks like the one below.

I think I could be ok at this electric thing.
If I have $ to go buy one now I would probably buy a Telecaster and a Fender Amp. Probably like the ones below. It wouold cost me about $1500 to get what I want. I could get a bit lower end for abut $800.

So if anyone has $ or a guitar/amp/pedals you want to to give me, HALA atcha boy. Some may say beggars can't be choosers, well i am not begging so please don't give me a guitar that my almost 2 year old would know is crap.Oh and I am not going to list all the pedals I want because I seriously doubt someone is going to give me any of this.

That’s all for tonight.

Hardest thing about being a parent

Being sick when your kid is sick. Its not easy when he is healthy and your sick but when he is sick and you are as well, HOLY CRAP its hard.

C and I have been dying these past couple of days. If you know me, you know I am pretty hot natured. Like I am that guy that hate spending the night at houses who don’t use AC to is best abilities. I mean who likes to sweat while they sleep? And that’s when I am sleeping in boxers with NO covers. Now the Adairs is the only house I have stayed in that I have been cold. Lindz keeps that place like a meat locker. I can’t imagine how cold Matt is since they are expecting baby #2. Anyway
I laid in bed Wednesday night in sleeping paints, 2-tshirts, sweat shirt, ski socks, and a toboggan. I go from extreme hot moments and cold periods. On top of that I feel like I am wearing ear plugs. My ears are clogged with crap as well. It has not been fun.

So what now? Do have anything else to talk about besides how crappy everyone in my house feels? Yup I have some new rants, so enjoy:

-Santana is not worth 150.76 over 6 years, NO ONE IS!
-I actually feel bad for Amy Winehouse.
-Blockbuster online went up on its prices and honestly its not worth it unless you watch movies every day.
-We have been reading a blog about a guy with a wife that has cystic Fibrosis. They just recently had a baby born 15+ weeks early. This blog is life changing. The latest video he has made is the 1st time he has been able to hold their baby. Its SO moving.
-I am actually watching some of the political debates. Man I feel old. Why do I think politics are for old people?
-I have grown out my 3 nails. They have never grown out on their own and now they are. I am pretty shocked. They really help my cocaine habit. Just kidding I play the guitar if you didn’t know.
-Writers strike, I am even MORE over this strike.
-Sleep, for some reason I can’t go to bed early, nor am I taking naps. And if I am sick you would think I would sleep a lot.
-Annie, I think its strange but I check your blog every day. I barley know you and I read your blog every day.
-BTM your new camera takes some great pictures.
-I love my church. We really want to be a place for the broken and bruised, mistreated and abused. Why? Because that’s who we are.

There ya go. Some thoughts.

Flu Fighters Don't Exist

These things don't work.

Well, now L is sick. AWESOME.
Lets just say our house is not the fun place to be right now.
