I love Lost. Have I mentioned that lately? No, I guess I haven't. But I do. Lost rocks. Plain and simple.

It is just so interesting how they do that show.

Wow, just wow!

Derby Update

We are back from the races. We had a good time. There were over 50 cars there!

The Pack got a new track this year to go with the new electronic timer we got last year. With the software they got and the timers, the races went fast! Each of the boys got 4 runs. It was great!

My boy didn't place in the Wolf division. But he enjoyed it. He came in 3rd, 2nd, 2nd, and 4th.

All the scouts got to vote on their favorite car in each age group. My boy did the
Wolves Coolest Looking Car
Needless to say, he was very excited about it!

Pine Wood Derby!

Yes, it's that time again, time for the Cub Scouts Pine Wood Derby.

We had a lot of fun making his car this year. And I think it looks much better than last years model.

He didn't really want to do it, or so he said. Truth is, he's excited about it. Especially now it is done, but he didn't want to take the time from playing video game to work on it. Silly boy.

The big race is tomorrow, lets hope we do better than last years last place finish.

Camo Formula 1 style race car? Who woulda thought?

Self Disclosure

I was tagged by Bowden McElroy from Counseling Notes to participate in the following exercise in self-disclosure.

1. Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.

Seven Facts About Me:

  1. I am an Oklahoma State Alumni. I graduated with a BS in Com-Sci more almost 13 years ago.
  2. The summer after graduating from High School, I went on a 3 week student exchange program to the USSR. It was a great, but at the same time, was the longest 3 weeks of my life.
  3. I am a Junior. And I believe people should not add Jr's or numbers behind their son's names. It become confusing later in life.
  4. This year will be married to my wife for 10 years! It's been a great marriage!
  5. I enjoy gardening even though I don't eat many vegetables.
  6. I really enjoy Sci-fi and Fantasy in all its forms. (Video games, books, and Movie/TV)
  7. I've had a computer in my home since I was in 7th grade (around 11/12 years old). So though I've not have one all my life, I consider myself one of those that have grown up with computers.
I know this says to tag 7 others, but I'll save you all the worry and I wont. But I would love to have some of you do it. Comment if you do so I can stop by and read.

Birthday Cake

Today, we are having my boy's birthday party. On Tuesday (his actual birthday), my wifes parents went with us to CiCi's Pizza, and he got to open some presents. But today, 4 of his friends are suppose to come over and go with us to Chuck-E-Cheese Pizza.

Last year, I made him his birthday cakes. They both were Yoda and they were the first cakes I have decorated in a very long time. Today, I decorated this years cake.

The writing was a bit sloppy (as he pointed out) but it's not too bad. And for the record, the 8 eights are suppose to be at different angles.

He likes it, and that is what really matters.

Happy Birthday

Today is my boy's 8th birthday!!! It's hard to believe it's been 8 years since he was born.

8 years since he stopped breathing and turned blue. 8 years since they put him in N-ICU. My 9 lb 6 oz giant in with all the premie's. That day was one of the happiest and scariest days of my life.

He's growing up so fast! Though I guess all kids do.

Happy Birthday!

Happy New Year

Well, today is January 1st, 2008.

It's hard to believe that 2007 is over, and 2008 is just beginning.

I always like the new year. Something about it is refreshing.

I hope everyone has a wonderful new year!
