Beavis and Butt-head

Anyone ever wonder how Mike Judge came up with Beavis and Butt-head or specifically the Beavis alter-ego, Cornholio? Well, I am guessing he had children. Ryder and Taggart have never seen Beavis and Butt-head but thought this was the funniest thing. It didn't help that Daddy kept encouraging by laughing hysterically.
What transpired next may be more concerning.....

If this were an episode it would probably have been named one of the following actual episode names: Beware of the Butt, No Laughing, Be All You Can Be, Naked Colony, Sporting Goods, Buff 'N' Stuff, Young Gifted and Crude, or Temporary Insanity.

What the heck is Ryder doing in the background?

Happy Valentine's Day

Ryder came home from school with his Valentine for all his classmates.Tagg welcomed his brother home, took a look, jumped in front of the camera and then asked if everyone was ready for lunch.

Pure happiness....
.....for both Daddy and Ryder

Ryder skiing

This weekend, Ryder officially hit the slopes. We took a brief vacation into the mountains and rented him skis.
He showed no interest in lessons and actually asked if we would take him further up the mountain.

After this brief run (above), we agreed and took him up on his first chair lift. He needs to work on his turns and stopping and would benefit from wearing a helmet but this was a huge step for the little guy. At three years and three months we could not have asked for more. He loves skiing and wants to do it more often.

Ryder's First Day of School

Today was Ryder's first day at Louisville Montessori for pre-school.Mommy and Daddy spent some time before school on the playground. Mommy had to spend a little extra time providing words of encouragement.As they announced it was time to enter the school Ryder jumped in line then looked at Mommy and Daddy like what in the heck is going on.

He had a great day, enjoyed himself and is excited to go back tomorrow.


The last week has been a bit challenging as Taggart had double ear infections and walking pneumonia. Funny, he barely walks so how do you get 'walking pneumonia'?

Part of his recovery was based upon imitating the Muppets Swedish Chef, "Børk! Børk! Børk!" and eating pretzels.
