In Heaven there is no Beer...

...that's why we drink it here, and when we're gone from here, our friends will be drinking all the beer! GO HAWKS!!

Happy 5th Anniversary to me and Shawn! With all that has changed in our lives these past 5 years, it's kind of funny how today is so similar to our wedding day. Lots of rain and a Hawkeye victory over the Sucklones! Couldn't ask for a better day. :)

Shawn has been on vacation all week, so I've got a lot of pictures to upload and share. That'll be a post for another day, though, as we're going to head out and celebrate! Shawn's mom is here to watch the kids, so we can have a nice date night. I'm very much looking forward to it. :)

Welcome to my blog! I've decided to get away from board-based journaling and keep everything in one spot. Not that I make any promises about frequent updates, mind you.

If you're new to my life, I'm Lacie. I've been married to Shawn for almost 5 years (our anniversary is 9/13/03, this Saturday!). We have two kids, Ethan and Logan. Ethan turns 3 on 9/21, and Logan is 3 months old today! The above picture refers to Ethan - he's a very, shall we say, spirited kid. He drives me crazy on a good day and drives me out of my everloving mind on the bad ones.

Let's see, what can I say about Ethan? He's wicked smart. Doesn't miss a thing. He's working on reading at the moment - he recognizes a ton of words, and tries his best to sound out unfamiliar ones. He gets them right sometimes, too! He loves NASCAR and can name quite a few drivers. Jr. is his favorite, of course, and he also likes Jimmie Johnson. He's also an Iowa Hawkeyes fan, as any child of ours darn well better be. :) His favorite thing to do is stand on the top rung of his slide and look over the fence to see the po-pos, ambulances, fire trucks, and semis go by. He's in gymnastics and has a blast with that - this is the last session where we go with him, and then he'll be in a class with just a teacher and other kids! Very exciting. He also starts preschool next week! I go with him for the first half of the year, and then he'll go by himself in January.

Logan is my little sweetheart. He's very much a momma's boy, probably due in large part to the fact that I possess the boobies, and the boobies are his very favorite thing in the world. He's quite the fan of his big brother, regardless of the constant poking, hitting, and general pestering he has to endure from Ethan on a daily basis. He's a very smiley boy, and is starting to laugh, though his laughs sound a bit like a donkey at this point. He loves tummy time, and swinging, and looking at himself in the mirror. He's also quite a fan of cuddling with Daddy, and the crook of Daddy's arm is a guaranteed napping spot.

I hope to keep this blog updated as a record of their childhood - I've kept journals since I was pregnant with Ethan and I love having all of that to look back on and help me remember. It's amazing how much I've forgotten about Ethan's babyhood, though it was only 3 years ago. And being that it's me that's writing, I'm sure there'll be some complaining, because that's what I do best.
