news in ninety seconds

i didn't take pictures of my little darling on her second birthday. i will make it up. somehow. someday.

greg fell down the stairs {for the umpteenth time, as he's too macho to hang on to the hand rail}. he suffered the most horrific injury i've ever seen. his left {ahem} cheek has a black/purple/royal blue bruise the size of a ruby-red grapefruit. not even kidding. he asked me if i thought he could get a blood clot from it. if that thang starts to move he's going to have a massive stroke. i've begged to get a picture, but he knows me well enough to know that my mother, sister, girlfriends would receive text images within minutes . . .

both kiddos are great. they make my heart smile. until it hurts.

no current {fun} projects at chez burkett. we're waiting to see if a new roof is in our immediate future.

i think ellie is nearly deaf. she's still my honey. my little dog, a heart beat at my feet {someone brilliant and famous said that, not me}.

that's all. i'm exhausted.

more soon, i hope . . . if not, know at least i'm living it {not capturing it} to the fullest!

Ben Jammin' Turns 4!

And my mommy forgot to post something.

Just messing with ya. I should preface this by saying this is Ben's dad (Greg) writing and not his mommy. Of course, that is pretty evident considering this is my first time ever to blog and Amanda is already a pro. However, even she is human has been totally swamped with... well, everything so I thought I'd give her a break. With that said, I didn't want Ben's birthday to go by without wishing him one last.... Happy birthday Ben! I love you, buddy, and hope you enjoyed your day!



(One last thing, these pictures are from my cell phone and no where near the quality of what ya'll are used to getting from Amanda. But, they came from me and I think that's part of what blogging is about.)
