Windows Vista

So Windows Vista is finally going to be launched soon and I can't wait. As an avid Macintosh user I always love to see what the geniuses up in Microsoft land have cleverly come up with on their own. (Note tongue firmly implanted in cheek) Now thanks to David Pogue of the New York Times we can get a sneak peek of what those wacky guys in Washington are up to. Enjoy!!!

Move in Day!


Just a short post to let you all know that our girls moved in today. As I type they are sound asleep in the next room. We fought SoCal traffic to get out to the foster home by 6:00 and we were a bit late but no big deal. We had a lot of papers to sign when we got there but the girls were ready to go as soon as we walked in the door. After all the formalities, the girls said some good-byes and blew kisses as they got in the car. They stayed awake the whole trip home and they both wanted cereal for a snack. Mom helped us get PJ's on but the girls had a hard time going to sleep. A lot of tears and lulabys later they were both zonked out. Tomorrow is a day filled with getting to know the house and bonding. We ask for your prayers for this time as well as for the girls legal situation. Nothing is ever a done deal until you hear it from the judge. Please pray for us and our situation. I think that is what is most concerning to me. All the other stuff about being a Dad will be ok, but I have absolutely no control over the courts and that scares the you-know-what out of me. Well, I have to wrap a few more presents and then try to get some shuteye tonight. Thanks for all of your cards and emails. We greatly appreciate them. Talk to you when I can...

It's a Girl...No, It's two Girls!!!


Jill and I are proud to announce that we will be welcoming two beautiful girls into our home December 21st. It has been a long process but we will be blessed by the addition of these beautiful girls. Due to their legal status I am not able to mention their names or post their pictures on any public page on the internet, including Blogger.com. I will also need to ask you to not mention the girls by name on any page you may have (including myspace). If you want more information, please send me an email or give me a call. In any event, Jill and I could not be happier and are looking forward to being parents. We covet your prayers as the girls make a big transition into their new home. Thank you in advance for all of your support. Please understand if posting becomes rare for a while. Have a Merry Christmas!!!
