We All Work

Naomi was watching Alex for a few hours today and I finished my real work very quickly. That left me with a couple of hours to tackle house projects. I painted the bathroom door and then started to work on the sunroom storm windows. They currently have screens, but Wade is going to convert them…

    Funny about having the same high chair. I think I had the same one too, and it’s still in Mom’s garage. Guess it was a popular model in ’79!

    I love the high chair! That’s exactly what I want too…tick tock…waiting for this wedding business to be over so we can get started!

A Reminder Of The South

Wade and I tried a new church today and were pleasantly surprised. Transformation City Church reminded us of Catalyst (our church from South Carolina). Today’s church meets in a theater (just like Catalyst) and is definitely small and intimate. We sang praise songs and hyms. Wade and I both left feeling energized and refreshed. The…

Date Night

Wade and I had a date night tonight!  We didn’t really start planning the date unitl Amy, our babysitter, arrived.  First Wade had to shower and get ready after working on the bathroom.  I decided a picture was needed of Alex and I in our matching outfits.  (Don’t worry.  I won’t do this when he…

    You know you are going to intentionally match and take pics when he’s older:)

Amateur Photographer At Work

It was a rainy yucky day (for most of the day) so I pulled out Wade’s camera and had a little fun.  Alex might not have had fun, but he did cooperate (for the most part). Due to our cool temperatures, Alex wore his first pair of jeans today: Alex is fascinated with Madison and…

Random Facts

I am excited about two random facts I learned recently. The first is that gmail doesn’t recognize a dot in the username portion of your email address. Therefore Jane.Smith@gmail.com is the same as JaneSmith@gmail.com. It’s like getting two email addresses for the price of one. Especially for those of us who chose the JaneSmith version…

    I’m a huge fan of gmail. If you really want to go crazy with email addresses, Gmail will ignore anything after a + symbol so you’ve got pretty much infinite addresses (sort of). Need a verification email to sign up for something but don’t actually want any more email from them? Sign up as “janesmith+junk@gmail.com” and then filter anything coming in with that +junk addition. I learned that trick earlier this year on the new Gmail ninja page: http://www.google.com/mail/help/tips.html

Antiques and Flowers

My Mom loves antiques. When I was hunting for Wade’s card catalogs I tried to visit every antique store in Milwaukee. I didn’t quite make it to all of them (nor did I find the card catalogs), but I did find an awesome store – Blackhawk Antiques. We tried to go yesterday but it turns…

Bedtime Routines

After a full day of playing and shopping, it was time bedtime for Alex. Mom was more than happy to take care of the bedtime routine. First we had a bath: On a side note, Alex now enjoys his baths. There is even playing, until it is time to get out: Next we had a…

Gram Comes To Town

Alex and I had a hectic day before Mom got in to town. Pat came to clean for me one last time (she is moving to Illinois). Alex and I made a quick trip to the Y. Then Naomi came to watch Alex while I got a bit of work done. Everything was clean and…
