Merry Christmas

Another Christmas Eve and Day has come. Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love the act of giving. I love to see my sons eyes when he plays with something he really likes, or when I give my wife something she didn't expect.

During this holiday I am blessed with a wonderful and amazing wife, a son who words can't say how much I love him, and a loving family.

May you and yours have a wonderful Christmas.

God Bless.

Speech to the Board of Education

Tonite - as my wife says - I made my first step into becoming active in local politics. Well not really - all I did was speak in front of our local Board of Education.

At the last meeting the President of the board said something I really didn't like - so at the meeting this evening I just got up and spoke about it. Nothing major - just letting them know who I am and talking about the comment. More than anything I think it made them know who I am and that I will be vocal about things - especially when it comes to my childs education.

No major new updates to report. Hayden has been feeling under the weather for what seems like 2 months. He was on the "yummy pink stuff" for a week and it seemed to help - but the runny nose is back and a cough now. The joy of 12 toddlers running around a class room all with passing germs to each other.

This time of year is always crazy with all the Christmas parties and family gatherings. I'm thinking Hawaii sound really good right about now !!

Probably wont have too many updates for a couple weeks because of the holidays - but I'll try and maybe post some Christmas pictures and stuff.

God Bless everyone - and have a great Christmas and New Years !!!

As if having a blog didn't make me cool enough - I'm now on Facebook! and so is my wife. So if you are too - look us up.

Always thought I was "too old" for Facebook! - but it's actually really cool. I've connected with alot of family and high school friends. There's also a Fragile X connection as part of the "my causes" application - so I thought that was cool.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving !! Only 24 shopping days till Christmas !!

God Bless
