Working from home has its advantages. After getting the kids up, fed (sometimes chocolate chip pancakes), and out the door, I can then sit and start my day. I thought I'd share with you the mug I enjoy each day with some fresh coffee and tasty creamer.
This mug is my favorite that I drink out of every day. I'm able to add pictures, instead of something like a credit companies name, a lenders name, or something that reads 'class of XX'
On one side is my daughter, Sidney. She is not this small anymore. In the top picture she is almost 2 (now 12 1/2... you have to add the 1/2 now) and is wearing a Nike hat that I use to wear. It was a little big for her, but she was so darn cute in it with those big cheeks.
The bottom picure is of my daughter and son together. They are 13 months apart. In this picture we were in the snow
If I turn my mug slightly to the right, you will see my son, Quinten. Again, he isn't this small anymore. At the time of the above picture, he was just over 2 years old. When he was a baby, it would take a miracle to get this boy to laugh at us (and I'll have you know I'm pretty funny). He was not a cranky baby... just didn't find us amusing... at least not that often. After a year, the boy was cracking more smiles and now has a big grin on his face most of the time. As a matter of fact, he thinks he's the funniest kid around. I compare him to Jim Carey because he is goofy like that all the time. My wife and I often laugh at the thought that he didn't laugh at us at all in the beginning and now he has quite a sense of humor.
The bottom picture is of the kids together. They are around 5 & 6 years old and we were at the park where Quinten was learning to play Tee Ball. It was also the last day that Quinten tried Tee Ball.
Of course, the mug would not be complete without my lovely wife Andrea, who has put up with me for 15 years (in December). We will leave her age out of this post, but I can say she was younger in each of these pictures.
The top picture was in 1994. It was our first apartment together in Moorpark, California. A simple 2 bedroom, 2 bath. She laughs at me when I tell her its one of my favorite pictures. I'm a simple man and don't need all of the fancy dresses and make-up. The ponytail/scrunchy works just fine for me. :-)
In the bottom picture was one of our first real dates. We went to Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California. The date was 8/15/94, it was a work day. We both ditched work and of course were spotted by other employees. It was a lot of fun. That was when we use to go on the scary rides....
I could change the pictures around, but honestly they have been the same pictures for 6 years now. We take lots of pictures, but these are some of my favorites. Thought I'd take a moment and share my mug with you and share some stories. Now I'll get back to work!
