Family Pictures and other kudos....

First of all , I would like to thank Yorksdevil for writing the HTML code for me so I could have a blogroll! Yay! I have always wanted my very own blogroll! Secondly, I would like to state for the record that having Parent-Teacher conferences on a Monday sucks for all concerned. THEY don't want to hear the bad stuff - WE don't want to tell them. But, I had good things to tell on all my kids, so there was some positive. Finally, I would like to say that I am tired of being a grownup. And I'm clearly not good at it.

Okay, having done all that....on with the good stuff: PICTURES! A couple of weeks ago, my nephew Tyler was baptized. He is the second son of my only sister, Terri. Terri and her husband Joe wisely (or not so wisely, depending on your perspective) chose me to be Tyler's godmother, and my 16 year old son, Joseph, to be his godfather. Joseph was really flattered and rose to the occasion.
First up, a picture of my nephew Will, who is 5, and Tyler, who is almost 8 months old:













Next, a picture of me and Joseph, holding Tyler, as the proud godparents:













Finally, a picture of me and my kids:

Joseph (in the tie) is 16, Rachael (the pretty girl in front) will be 15 at the end of this month, Daniel (on my right) is 12, and Aaron (the cute little boy next to Rachael) is 6.


This is my crew, and I'm proud of them.
That's all for now.

I only know athiests so a baptism would be completely alien to me. Does this mean you and your eldest are responsible for the child's religious instruction?

1) maybe my lasik is wearing off, but I don't see the blog roll
2) being a grown up is over rated. I likes being childish.
3) Hated conference days. Loved the feeling of successful meetings, though. I still keep some of the old conf feedback sheets. Knowing the effort I took during confs, I was so dissapointed at Mancub's conf this year. Oh well.
And lastly, 4) Great pics of the gang!

Have a great week.
