I have started building CM10.1 for the jewel. I am not making changes to the sources but rather just providing the ROMS that I am using on my phone for public consumption. You can find the files here.
We are finally getting a snowy winter!
Yet another successful Christmas!
Last night we went over to the Matt and Becky Joy’s House. We brought finger foods and snacked and hung out. Matt and I ducked outside and looked through his telescope at Jupiter in the freezing cold. After we were finished snacking and such, we decided to exchange and open a few gifts. What a wonderful time. I also was able to catch some of the Cowboys game… as terrible as it was.
This morning Brittney was constantly knocking on our door to wake us up so that the unwrapping could begin. Ashley got out of bed and went to get things organized as I lightly dozed. I got up and heated up some coffee. As it was warming up, Ashley noticed that we did in fact get our white Christmas. Not that it was a lot of snow, but everything was lightly dusted I then turned Pandora on to our Christmas channel and we began opening presents. Not only were the kiddos inquisitive as to what was under the wrapping paper, the animals were also curious.
After all of the presents were done being opened, the games began.
I think the girls were more than happy with the gifts from Santa, family, and friends. This was yet another wonderful Christmas.
Few weeks into her new school Brit decided to join Chorus. Brit even sang a solo with 3 other children in the last song. We are so proud of her. She was nervous and all with her flushed cheeks, and fidgeting hands but she was great!!! Our beautiful, baby girl is growing up so fast..
Ash posted this on my facebook so I decided to repost this to our site because it is so true! This post is by Michael Mitchell (lifetoheryears.com) on Christine‘s blog. It is nice to see that I meet some of these guidelines, but it also shows me areas where I can be better as a father. So, here is the post with all of its original content:
Today I got my first dig-it tattoos. They are on my feet and are a pig and rooster. This is the significance of the pig and rooster from wiki.answers.com:
The pig and the rooster are tattooed on either the calves or the top of the feet, to prevent a sailor from drowning,. These animals were originally carried on most ships in wooden crates. When a ship goes down these crates would float and then catch currents and wash ashore with the other debris from the ship, making the pigs and roosters often the only souls to survive a shipwreck.
Here is an interesting story from the 50’s detailing the significance of the pig and rooster: USS Rochester
Today was a good day. Early last year i was very interested in New York’s waterfalls. I made a list of all the local ones in the area and when Rob was on his crappy shifts the girls and i would go out exploring them for something to do. This place is about an hour from home but the pics online showed an absolute amazing waterfall that was fairly easy to get to. So spring time last year the girls and i headed out to go see the 75ft waterfall and we were definitely not disappointed.
Well today when we got up and going i thought it would be a great day to take Rob to go see the beautiful waterfall and go hiking along the trails with the dogs. It was a gorgeous day and come Saturday night/early Sunday is when the dang Hurricane is suppose to hit, so what better time to get out than this.
I dont think Rob was disappointed at all. It was a beautiful site with very nice trails to go along and a Lake that you can fish at. Overall another one for the books!!!
