As Days Go By...

I don't know tons of famous stars and pop singers but I do know of Keith Urban (easy on the eyes I might add). He has a song that I probably only know the chorus to but it goes something like "Days go by...something, somethin, somethin, and the somethin..." okay, well, I'm sinking fast here~ I'm hearing the song in my head as I think of how time flies by...way too fast. My little Cason is almost 2 years old. He has grown (somewhat) and is getting smarter as the days go by. He is a little big for his britches most days and is so independent. Every once in a while on one of his "sweet" days (or with a bribe of SMARTIES), I can get him to lay with his ole momma on the couch to watch Curious George . Boy I love these days...but unfortunately and inevitably they "go by..." It has taken quite a while to do this but I have made a slide show of Cason's first year. I took a picture every week of his first year. Thought I'd upload the slide show over in "photo albums"~check it out. Ryan, this ones for you so I can write down directions as I go on how to upload the links. Take care all~

Those Dumb Email Forwards...

So has anyone ever sat down at your computer console with the sole intention of checking pertinent emails for the day??? Yes, I have as well. Have you found that in the email checking process you are bombarded with spams, ads, and probably worst of all DUMB FORWARDS!! Too many people have too much time on their hands. Okay, well I could go on and on. Every once in a while I will read a FORWARD that makes them all worthwhile.
