Thowback Time!!!

Wasn't I a doll.....man what happened :) Don't you just love the "Bowl Cut?" You'll find, in later pictures that I post, this obvious was a favorite haircut of my moms. I think I sport this hairstyle up until the age of 6. Some versions are a little longer then others, which resulted in a mullet. That's right folks.....a mullet!! Aren't you eagerly waiting on the edge of your seat for me to post those pictures. All in due time folks, I promise.

It's Never Too Early!

So, after watching all the Olympic coverage and learning that some Chinese athletes get put into training camps at the age of three, Spence and I thought we better start working with Cash. You know......because he's going to be a "World-Class Athlete" someday :) Well, this week we've been working on his speed. As you can tell from the video, we've got the makings of a "Future 100 Meter Dash World Record Holder" training right here in our living room! Watch out Usain Bolt, Cashion "Quick Feet" Laird is hot on your heels!!!!

Oh, and that mess on the floor....it's not really a mess, merely obstacles to help with training and not the fact that Cash felt the need to sort the mail :)

It's Been So Long......

.....I figured this could constitute a "Throwback Thursday" moment. We finally finished our kitchen and dining room. Yeah!!!! It looks really good and I'm so happy we did it. Even though it was a pain living in a construction zone for so long, I'm glad we did it. It makes such a difference having that wall down. I've posted the befores to refresh your memory.
Edited to Add: Mandy G. asked what the counter tops were so I thought I would explain what all we did. Obviously, the wall came down :) Every surface got repainted - walls, trim, cabinets (inside and out - the inside of all the cabinets are the same color that the walls are in the dining room). We replaced cabinet knobs, got a new sink and faucet, granite counter tops, bead board backsplash, new outlet and light switch covers, new blinds, bead board in the dining room and new decorations :) I think that's it...who knows at this point. Oh, and the rug (you can see it best in the 8th picture) inspired the whole color scheme. I've had that picked out at Peir One for quite sometime and just knew they would sell out of it before I could afford to buy it. Luckily, that didn't happen.

Oh, and if you guys missed the post "Just Another Day In The Office" right before the "Yearbook Pictures" go back and take a look at it. It's pretty darn cute if I do say so myself :)

You Know I Couldn't Resist This

If you know me at all, you know that when I get started on something I can't stop. Well, here's another case of just that. I couldn't resist putting Spence's face in these pictures.

1952 - Spence's best Chad Parks impersonation :)

1970 - He might need to get those glasses adjusted....there's a little tilt to them :)
1976 - Okay, this is just ridiculous at how simliar this picture is to one that Ed actually took....probably in this year.

Thought I'd give myself a few makeovers. Some of these made me laugh out loud when I was editing them. If you need a good laugh, you absolutely need to go and do this to yourself :)

Just Another Day In The Office!

And guessing by their attire, it must be "Casual Wednesdays." :)
Cash is a multi-tasker....he can type on the computer and talk on the phone at the sametime.

Cash must not like what's being said on the other side of this conversation.
