can't keep him down.

even with a 102 degree fever.
fluid in his chest.
and a cough like an 80 year old smoker.
you can't keep this kid down.
bless his hockey-lovin-heart.

notice the tongue?

prayers answered.

just an update.
chip's surgery went well.
he is recovering wonderfully.

pray for him.

today, this morning, our dear friend chip
will be undergoing brain surgery
to attempt to control his parkinson's symptoms.
we pray for him, gigi, yaya, steff, and all of his family.

love her...

after a long day at work (on a saturday).
i walk through the door.
only to be greeted by a smiling face.
with one bottom tooth.
giggling. squealing.
saying, "hi."
love her.

that's the nicest tooth i've ever seen.

as the onaway joke goes,
"that's the nicest tooth i've ever seen."

and those cheeks. ughh.

a happy father's day.

this past sunday.
we celebrated father's day,
as we all won't be together on the actual day.
the best father in the world
(besides my own),
was treated to breakfast on the beach.
new sunglasses.
and a beautiful framed picture of his wonderful children
(and their mother)
for his desk at work.
we love you.


it was a happy father's day.

vintage girl.

vinage is all the rage these days.
these are "vintage" dresses that used to be mine.
i'm not sure how i feel about something that used to be mine
being referred to as "vintage".
