The Things That Bring Us Joy



We all have our simple, little things that bring us joy. For me, one of those things are daffodils. They represent new life and sunshine, Easter and springtime. I just can't get enough of them. For Jeff, however, he finds joy in different ways. Welcome to the Command Center. This past weekend, while my brother in law and his crew were here finishing the basement, they set up a gaming center in the garage. That man you do not see toward the back of the photo is Grant. He's doing something top secret, it would appear. Also, note the cases of pop and bags of candy- enough to take them through many satisfying hours of shooting and killing one another.

Seriously! What is the deal with boys/men and video games? How can they easily become addicted at 3 years of age and never get over it!!! Of course I have had my time with Tetris and Amped, so I guess I get it.

Russ wishes he could have been there--he says that would have been fun! Russ loves to bond with our boys playing Battlefront or something on psp...

Maybe if there's a promise of a Command Center at the beach Ben abd Grant will come. Then again, then we'd never see our husbands again, so never mind!

First, i am really relieved to see that cindy Lynn hasn't started calling Russ- russ. i mean, that would be so liberated and all, but still, very creepy!
I have to say i love the things that can really give happiness. For me or nathan. For me, its is a beautiful blue sky with birds singing, and daffodils saying that the winter is FINALLY over!!!! For Nathan it is hitting a few golf balls at the golf dome. I love being happy, i love him being happy!!!!

currently, i dream of dirtbikes. videogames are a sorry substitute, but here i am. i find that my super-gaming laptop is slighlty more portable, though, so yes, i play games.
on the plus side: Have you ever met my emily? she is completely awesome, and every day i get to be with her is just too good to describe. now if only i could get US dirtbikes... aha... a new kind of joy.
