So I finally figured out how to add myself to this blog. Since it has taken nearly a year to do, I have little time to post something now. But I hope this will be a start to keeping in touch with every one. Lindsay and I are doing great. It has been a long year thus far. I started back in the window tinting business at the beginning of this year and have been working hard at getting that going. Lindsay has been busier than every doing dance this year. We are hoping to start her own studio in the following year. As for the kids, Mekhi and Ava, they are growing too quickly. Mekhi is four and a half and is in preschool this year. He loves school and socializing. He is not taking after me. If I can get him obsessed with golf then that will be a start in the right direction. Ava is two and a half and she is a little princess (and Diva at times) and loves to be treated like one. She loves dollies and doggies and can not get enough of them. We still have our two corgis, I think. Since kids have been here I haven't really noticed if the dogs are still around and if they get fed. I do know that they are not getting bathed. Anyway, like I said, I hope this will be a start for me and keeping up with all of you.

October Fun

We've had a busy month! Ian and I ventured east to Bloomington, IN, and Chicago. We went to Bloomington to see one of our favorite groups, Nickel Creek, perform and then hung out in Chicago the next three days. It was fun to see where Troy and I used to live, take the train into the city, and eat Chicago's best pizza. We were on a quest to find the best live blues music and found it at the House of Blues, imagine that. We had a blast, ate the best southern food and heard an awesome blues band. They could have been the band "nobody leaves this place without singin' the blues" from Adventures in Babysitting.

Then the whole family had the best Halloween ever. We went to a pumpkin patch and picked out pumpkins, the guys went to several haunted houses and haunted corn mazes, Troy, Zach, & Josh went all out decorating our front yard, Troy and I set up our ever expanding Halloween village, and we had a Halloween party with 5 families and about 15 teenagers.

As for costumes, Sophie was a witch, Michael was "Bug Boy", and Josh was a caveman. (Anyone seen the SNL skit "First Person in the History of the World to Dance"? That was his inspiration, complete with glow sticks.)
