Newest Family Member

No, I did not get a puppy...

Presenting the latest addition to our family, my new niece, Joceleigh.
Notice in the above picture how happy the child looks with mom holding her.
Now notice again in the above picture how her Aunt Shelly has such a special way with babies!
This picture was taken immediately after I handed her back to her mom. She was screaming bloody murder in my arms and then was happy as can be with her mom.
This is a picture of Joceleigh's big sister. I can't believe Lileigh isn't the baby anymore!
The family came from Utah for a quick visit--it was nice seeing them and meeting the newest family member.

Good times in the ghetto!

Alan and I went over to Chuck's house early Saturday evening to help build the ghetto deck that's right next to the ghetto pool.  We have a pretty awesome view of the strip from the deck now that we can see over his fence. Obviously the deck still needs a few finishing touches, like sanding, so you don't get slivers in your arse. Stadium seating on the lower level. All the better to watch the UFC fight.
Sammy jumped into the ghetto pool to be with Chuck. He is standing on a chair in this picture. Good times!

Not quite the Sunday blues

The weekend is almost over! Why does it have to go by so quickly? Friday night Alan and I are usually pretty beat from a busy week at work, but we decided to head to Sierra Gold, our local bar, for 1/2 price happy hour drinks. Well, as it turns out the waitress is our next door neighbor, so we had a good time gabbing with her and asking all the important questions like why have the school truant officers been at their house so much lately? After I drank about 4 margaritas (Alan only had 2 beers and was responsible), we decided to give Chuck a call. We headed over to Carmine's restaurant and spent the rest of the night there. Holy cow, there was a girl(?), well woman, okay old hag that WOULD NOT leave Chuck alone (I have photographic evidence but am not posting it here, if you want to see a pic or two email me). Of course, I DID ALL THAT I COULD to encourage her to harass him (mainly sexual). Apparently at the end of the evening (we left about 1:00 am) he finally gave her $60 to get a cab and get the hell out of there. I was just wondering though if Chuck will have to find a new hang-out? :)
Needless to say, I wasn't feeling my *best* on Saturday morning so we just layed low at home and wasted the whole day on the Internet. Saturday night we decided to go out to dinner again because god forbid one of us would cook, I called up Landon and we all headed to a local Mexican restaurant. It ended up being a fairly early evening even though he wanted us to go play poker. So, here we are on Sunday. I did get bills paid, signed up for twitter (follow me, I will follow you), and got a pedi. Landon came over again and we grilled steaks. All in all it was a great weekend and I'm looking forward to the next one!
