A painful yet fruitful trip!

What can I say? The trip was long and filled with lots of different emotions; highs and lows, laughter and crying, but most of all there was some healing.
I'm not sure my shoulders could be as strong as my brother Mickey's but would like to think they are. No parent should have to go through what they have gone through. I have to admit that my faith in God "IS" surely being tested at the point in time. I listened to all the religious people talk at Cody's funeral and not one of them could answer the question that was on every body's mind, "Why did this happen to this poor child?" What did he do to deserve being dealt such a shitty hand in life? Blind faith is what they are asking for. I not sure that I can give to them any more. Why do we see the evil people of this world rewarded with wealth and good health while children and innocent people suffer their whole lives? Good people who live their lives following God's word are raped, murdered and made to suffer. Meanwhile "Joe" the child molester walks the street or a man of God fondles a young child preaches to you and I! What God lets this happen? Death of a loved one causes many chain reactions and unfortunately they are not ALL good!
No, I'm not going off the deep end but some questions will need to be answered! Maybe they can't be answered, who knows. I will post some pics from the Virginia trip soon. Till then, C-ya!

Re: Time Flies

A little background on the pics. Yes, Alysse is really 5' tall and Elijah is really 4' tall. The lions sweatshirt is for the Lynden Schools, they are called the Lynden Lions. The kids picked out their own costumes.

R.I.P. Kerry Gallager

This a picture of one of my co-workers, Kerry Gallager, that recently died in a motorcycle accident on his way to work. He was new bike owner and rider and will be greatly missed. He was a joy to work with because he truly loved his job and was happy with nothing but doing the job right. It was a refreshing thing after dealing with grown men and women that bitch and moan about tough their jobs are everyday. They are lucky to have a job if you ask me and like I always tell them, "McDonald's is hiring!" God speed my friend!!

Time Flies!

Wow, where does the time go?? I can't believe that it is November already and I haven't posted anything in a long time. I have enclosed some photos from Elijah's 7th B-Day, 4-H scarecrow fundraiser and Halloween of course. I had to work Halloween but the kids looked great and the rain held off for the walk. Alysse was Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, Zoey was Toto and Elijah was a Recon Commando. It is hard to believe that X-mas right around the corner and we are days away from getting a new President. Obama scares the shit out of me and I'm afraid that McCain won't live very long. Anything has to be better than that idiot that is in office right now. God help us!!!

The most wonderful time of the year!

The heading says it all!! School is back in session and Kelsey and I are beside ourselves! Don't get me wrong, we love the kids but we need time for ourselves if you know what I mean! I put a video feed from Youtube with one our favorite commercials. The top one is the "Staples" back to school commercial that I love! Elijah is in 1st grade this year so he will be gone everyday, all day and now I can work on the "honey do" list that has been neglected. I can also get back to the gym on a regular basis because lord knows I need it! Alysse is in 5th grade this year and she has her first male teacher so this should be interesting. Maybe he can keep her from being such a social butterfly and get serious about school, we'll see!
Summer is slowly coming to an end and I'm pissed! I think we got cheated this year but maybe September will be nice.
