Hello! After reading and seeing my cousins blog, I dedcided it would be a good idea to do one as a way to keep in touch with family and friends who are not able to be around as much as we would like. I will try and post as often as I can but, as we all know life is busy. So, here goes:

Our oldest son Brendan is 11 years old and started middle school this year. He seems to like it and is doing well according to the e-mails I have received from his teachers. I decided at the beginning of the school year to send each of his teachers an e-mail letting them know who I was and if there was anyhing I could do to help out to let me know. I also wanted them to let me know if Brendan was having any trouble with anything or if there was anything I needed to be aware of. I think I did this because I started thinking about my middle school years and wanted to just be safe. I can't believe I have an 11 year old, where has the time gone??

Anyway, our middle child is Madison. She is 4 years old and started pre-school this year. She loves it! Her dad started teasing her during the summer about her getting kicked out of school because she was so strong willed and things were her way or the highway. The other day, she looked at me and said "see, dad was just teasing about me getting kicked out of school" It was all I could not to laugh cause she was very serious when she said it.

Finally, there is Riley. He is a year old. I call him the oddball cause our other 2 kids have blonde hair, green eyes, and are tall and skinny. Riley is nothing like that. He has brown hair, the most beautiful big blue eyes, and he is short and chubby. He is also one of the happiest babies I have ever seen. The only time he yells is when it is time for bed and when he is hungry. He will sit at my feet while I am in the kitchen cooking and yell until I give him a bite of whatever it is I am making, and that goes on the whole time I am cooking.

Brandon started his company last March and that pretty much has consumed our lives for the last year or so. He is a framing sub-contractor for mostly residential custom homes. Although right now he is in Aspen doing the remodel on the library. So, he does commercial stuff every once in a while.

As for me, I started a job a couple of months ago so I could have some adult time. I am working as a desk clerk at the Super 8. I also do the books and all the office stuff for our company, and I have recently taken on another companies bookwork.

And that is what is going on with us right now. Like I said I will try and post often.
