Happy Birthday, Freya!

Happy Birthday, Freya!

Happy Birthday, Freya!

Two years ago today, Freya was brought to us from the hospital by her biological parents and my heart has been hers ever since. Happy birthday, my little daredevil. Can’t wait to share the universe with you. And the real thing as well.

No April Fool

Plenty enough hard to get sleep around here, but here’s a quick update and intro to a promising new kickstarter, PlayTable. Take a look and maybe you’ll be as impressed as I am.

And don’t forget to subscribe at YouTube and/or drop a dollar on Patreon for Freya’s college fund during the 2017 “race.” Looks like everyone has stalled so far, but that’s what I get for sleepin’ on the job.

Another apology

If you have ever had children, you know how this goes. Freya has been having severe teething since we got back from the in-laws at Christmas and since I’m the one without an income, I’m the one trying my best to deal with it. But that means something has to give, and that is the podcasts. I will try to get back to podcasting as soon as I can.

In the meantime, here’s a short list of new ideas I have had:

The Pad and the Phone – How to get interaction in the family in the age of the app.

Priority One – Making family a priority; goal setting, budgeting, and a change of focus in the 21st century.

The Return of the Tabletop Game? – Looking closely at a new start-up.

LP Sermon Series: God the Father – Who is God to us? What does God say? The Painful Truth

Until then, folks, thanks for sticking with me and God bless.

A major apology…

Just a quick apology to all you who have been wondering what happened to content. Freya has been teething badly and is now sick with a bug, so, and those of you with kids will no doubt have stories of your own, sleep has gone out the window for me since I am on night shift for her, and daytime daddy daycare has taken a toll as well. That’s what happens when your kid gets sick. So I have been taking lots of notes over podcasts I would like to do in the hopefully near future and I hope to get you that content out before everyone gives up on me. Thank for your patience, y’all, and stay safe out there. God bless.

Christmas Thoughts – Family Fun is Now

Christmas Thoughts – Family Fun is Now

With a huge thanks to Pastor David Troutman of Northglenn Christian Church, I pass you a “to do” list for this Christmas season:

FINGER FOOD DINNER:

Pick a night this week. Go to the grocery store and have everyone pick out a finger food to share. Head home prepare your dishes and enjoy each others company!

CHRISTMAS MOVIE NIGHT:

Everyone put on your favorite PJ’s and slippers, make some hot cocoa or chai, pop some popcorn and watch a Christmas movie together.

DOLLAR TREE GIVING SPREE:

Head to the nearest dollar store and give everyone $1 for each family member (plus tax). You have ten minutes to find the perfect gift for each member. Go home and wrap the gifts for Christmas Eve or Christmas morning.

GINGERBREAD HOUSE:

This one is simple… either look up a recipe or buy a kit. Spend the evening together decorating your edible house.

FAMILY GAME NIGHT:

Pull out some board games, a deck of cards or a puzzle.

CHRISTMAS CAMP OUT:

Combine any of the previously mentioned events with a living room camp out! Get out some blankets, make some forts and sleep on the floor.

The objective is to create memories. When we look back at the time we spend with our family we will rarely remember something someone gave us… what we remember is the time we spend with one another. GET CREATIVE and CREATE A LIFELONG MEMORY of CHRISTMAS 2016!

Amen, Pastor David. Merry Christmas, everyone!
