POD: Gearing up for a party


Tonight we have a picture of some of Melissas party prep efforts. As the days till the party slip away I have to admit I’m looking forward to it. I’m sure it’s going to be great fun.

POD: Silly Jacob


I captured today’s picture of Jacob while heading home from this evenings swimming class. I tried to get a selfie of the three of us, but it didn’t work. So instead we have this picture of Jacob.

POD: The Great Race of 2014


Tonight was another party planning night, for Melissa and gang. So Nate came to visit again. Tonight the kids all played outside for a while before dinner. I captured today’s picture of Violet and Nate racing while they played. I think Violet might have had a bit of an edge in that race. Still the 2 of them had a great time playing together.

POD: Looking for a costume

wpid-20141018_153943.jpgToday we went on a quest to find me a Halloween costume. It didn’t work out as we expected, it seems the store was filled with Zombies. Perhaps we’ll have better lunch next time.

POD: Hanging with Miss V and Nate


Tonight Melissa and Suzanne got together to plan for our upcoming Halloween bash.  So Nate spent the evening with me and the kids. 

POD: Final Thanksgiving at Nanas

Today we headed to Nana and Papa’s for the Thanksgiving dinner.It was a great evening, but also a little sad to say good-bye to the house. Before dinner we gave each said something about the house that we were thankful for, listening to the kids say what they were thankful for was sweet.

POD: Coffee with a Power Ranger


Today we have a picture I took during my afternoon coffee break.  It wasn’t till then that I realized I had brought a couple of Jacobs Power Ranger Keys with me.  It seemed only fair to share my coffee with it.

POD: Waiting for the Season to begin

Today the Hockey season began for both of our kids. I captured todays picture of the day while they waited for their games to start. I love that they will both be wearing number 5 jerseys this season. It also impressed me how excited they both were to be playing again. They both skated hard and were in on plays all game. I just hope the excitement continues all season. I’m interested to see how Jacob does next weekend between the pipes. He volunteered as soon as the coach asked. I’m not sure if he really wants to play goalie, or just wants to get it over with for the season.

POD: Scootering to School


Todays picture of the day is of Violet and Jacob riding their scooters to school through the fall leaves.  I love the mornings when we can walk to school as a family.

POD: Softball Trophies

Today I thought I’d share Jacob’s baseball trophies and team picture for today’s picture of the day. He is so proud of them all. And I am so proud of him.
