Dinner for Two

We were both still a little under the weather today, so we ordered in a romantic pasta dinner for two. Guess this is what one year of being married does to romance 😉 I love you baby, and Happy Anniversary.

Ping Pong Flu

The tables have turned, and now my poor wife is in bed with the flu 🙁 Right now I’m in our living room babysitting her sisters and cousins until her mum comes to get them. This must be a sign of things to come… so far I’ve rescued her cousin from the evil advances of […]

Practicing for Grandfatherhood

Me, me, ME! :)

I made this wallpaper for my desktop on Saturday. I may not be able to feel the baby growing and kicking inside me, but I sure am very excited 😀

What’s Next?

Just when you think you know everything there is to know about your pets, they do something really unexpected. We’ve always known that Thunder and Dinky are very attached to each other. But today was something special. Thunder decided to revisit his roots by getting into his crate, and then Dinky decided to join him […]
