The boys had a great birthday party on Saturday! We had quite the crowd. It was really fun! We ended up going to FUN TIME 4 KIDS. It was a large room with a miniture "town" for the kids to play in. There was a bowling alley, garage, kitchen, dress up room, music room, camping, train table, etc. etc. We had 17 kids and 25 adults! Wow... it was chaos, but everyone seemed to have a great time.

Well, it is official. 2 days before Ryan's 2nd birthday, and he has officially and consistently been climbing out of his crib. I'm actually a little shocked that we have made it this long before it became an issue. He woke up at 2:30 last night WIDE AWAKE. After Mike and I rotated shifts getting him back to sleep, we finally thought he had settled down and fell asleep at 4:30. At 4:45, we heard someone playing on the train table that we had brought to our room. Oh boy... the freedom of keeping a screaming, tantrum-throwing child in the crib so you could count to 10 now has been lost. I suppose now it will make deciding what to give him for his birthday much easier. He will be excited to find out that he is getting his crib turned into a BIG BOY BED! (Cheap, I know, but seriously, we've got to take advantage of these types of gifts while they don't know any better!)
I saw this and thought there might be some good things that the environmentalist are pushing for....
An eco-friendly farewell
Some people request to be cremated, with their ashes spread at their favorite place. Others wish for a traditional ceremony with flowers and all of their loved ones present. However, a recent trend is to have a green funeral—down to the casket itself—according to a Dec. 27 article for CNN.com. Choosing biodegradable coffins and green funerals eliminates the use of laminated caskets, cement vaults and formaldehyde embalming, and can include anything from bamboo caskets with unbleached cotton lining to a US$100 cardboard box. With U.S. funeral homes generating more than US$10 billion in revenue annually, the market for green funerals could be quite promising.

They may disappear into the light, but what you don't know is there is an alligator waiting for them at the end of the tunnel...
I thought I liked alligators, but maybe they are a little scary. Should we really have our back to to one when it is this close?

I was interviewed for this article about a month ago and it just got published. I guess the printed version has a picture of me in it, but I haven't seen that yet. Just thought I'd share...
