It's been awhile since I last posted..I'll try to make a long story short.
The whole family went home to G.H. and had a blast with our MI Peeps and our families...we got enough snow and cold weather to last us for another year or two. We totally are waiting for some visitors to come out to see us in the near future.
The wife is digging her job and the kids are getting used to Cali living...the band is starting to take off and our first full length CD should be out at the end of March 08.
Currently it is raining outside... we don't get precipitation here much...so when we do it's good.
The Wii we purchased before Christmas has totally paid of as a major bargaining tool for our children..I know some individuals out there in blogworld don't agree with the whole "My kid plays video games" and stuff...but let me tell you..they have improved in school because if they don't.. they don't get to play with the Wii. I now think of it as my card up my sleeve when it comes to the nitty gritty.
We are also down to the one-time rule...when I tell the kids something one time it has to be acted upon by an action or a reply(we are still working on that one). I thought of how much time a day we spend repeating ourselves to our children because they don't or choose not to listen...it would make our days longer if they did. It's like basic training all over again.
Well I have become a Wii father also and spend some time on Medal of Honor Heroes online playing. Good times playing capture the flag in a village with 32 people on each side. Don't know why I prefer the sniper weapons..but always feels good to shoot people from a distance and they don't know where you are...it has some pretty good hiding places but you have to move around because they show where you are to the individual after the kill has taken place...it's funny after you shoot the same person about 6 or 7 times they tend to get a little "bent" and start doing the kamikaze thing to you. Challenging and very fun.
Well it's early and I have to go feed my kids and do the Sunday routine.
A big shout out to all my MI (and Illinois)PEEPS...hope you enjoyed the pics as much as we did!! We miss you all and are looking forward to some visitors soon so save your funds and come see us!!!
