Don't get too excited . . . this isn't our fire, Thanks Goodness! Greg has started a collection of some of his fires.
I have included just a few here for your viewing pleasure. For my cousin, TA . . . yep, being a firefighter can be pretty cool sometimes. :)
**While viewing this slideshow, I could SMELL the fires. I know that has to be some kind of psychological something . . . right? When Greg comes home from a shift, I always know if he had a fire and what kind (woods or house). That smell is one that lingers for a while. It gets into his hair folicles of all places, and even though he really tries to shampoo it out, it stays. If he brings his gear into the house for any reason after a fire, we can hardly breathe. lol. I think only a firefighter's wife can appreciate that laundry headache.
Here are the highlights of Olivia's life so far. You can see the photos on Picasa by clicking on the little yellow man icon in the bottom left corner and then clicking on "Olivia". You can turn the captions on and off by clicking on the call out box in the bottom left corner. Thanks for watching. :)

This is one of our favorite videos. I just re-found it and thought the grandparents especially would get a kick out of this.
As you can see, Josh is in the hall outside the bathroom door. Calvin is inside shouting at Josh. Who knows what he is saying. Josh is throwing a marble at the door while Calvin shouts. Calvin used to sit in the bathroom for the longest time while Josh played through the door. Now Josh is the one that stays in the bathroom singing . . . and singing . . . and singing. I will get him on video one of these days. :)
This one is MY favorite video clip! I will sometimes just watch and watch. I laugh just as hard each time I see it. Again, Calvin has just opened the door to the bathroom (you can see that he is still holding his shirt up). They had been screaming through the door, though Josh thought that his scream was a whistle. You can see Josh straining to get his last scream out before Calvin scares the mess out of the poor little guy! Oh, brotherly love. :)

This family of ours all started 10 years ago (acutally 11, but as Greg and I just celebrated our 10th anniversary, we will start then).
Greg was 26 .... I was 19. My mom, his mom and a family friend thought we should meet. Admitedly, I was not impressed with him at first . . . he arrived for our date 15 minutes early. Anyone who knows my family knows that we were never on time for anything (Greg changed that attribute of mine in a hurry). Well, he really was the perfect one for me so we decided to get married. Ten short years and here we are!
Okay, moving on
