Easter Morning 2013

Since we decided to stay home for Easter this year, here is a quick post to show Jackie on Easter Morning.

Sequestered in her room while the Easter Bunny makes the finishing touches

What you don't see here is that she was trying to dump a bottle of shampoo on the floor

How many years bad luck for opening an umbrella indoors? How about a Nemo umbrella?

Quite a hall... half of this stuff is recycled from last year... I don't think she notices.

Run Run Run

Our little Easter Bunny...Dad was also wearing bunny ears

Darth Vader slippers

New books

Sneaking away to eat jelly beans

Mommy egg and Jackie Egg

Too much candy?

The fake grass is always a bad idea... the baby needed a "nest"

Happy Easter Everyone!

Rescue at Sea

I came across this today on a linkedin message board for Kings Point Alumni. Here is a Coast Guard medevac from the S.S. Horizon Trader. This was the first ship I sailed on as a cadet, so it's pretty neat to see. I remember how she used to roll. My cabin on board was for repatriating other officers, so it was pretty simple with two bunks, but it was the only cabin on the ship with the bunk situated perpendicular to the length of the ship rather than parallel. So when she use to do these 35 degree rolls, I'd get rocked to sleep like a baby instead of thrown out of bed onto the deck.

The ship was named the Sea-Land Trader when I was on it, and she's turning 40 this year. She was built at the Ingalls Shipyard in Pascagoula Mississippi back in 1973. I did my college internship at that yard back in 2001.

The crew member being evacuated was another Kings Pointer, and apparently is OK.

Hair Cut Part Duex

Jackie had her second haircut a little over a week ago, and by special request I shall post the pictures.

"what ees thees?"

"Look Mom... what's that?"

Pretzel's are the only way to sooth the beast

So grown up looking... slow down kiddo.

Hopefully Jackie's last mug shot

Breakfast of Champions

Happy March everyone!

I'm happy to announce that the Entenmann's Chocolate Donut Bakery will be able to stay in business for another generation.

Jackie has taken up the family breakfast habit of Chocolate Frosted Entenmann's donuts like Daddy and Grandpa Ken.
