Good Morning

Filed under: Adam,Tessa,Twins — Chris @ 3:29 pm

“Don’t wake Mommy and Daddy up tomorrow!”

That’s what we say to the twins every Friday and Saturday night.  It never worked.  When they got hungry enough, or lonely enough or just wanted to watch TV, they would come in and ruin Daddy’s only chances to sleep in.  It was flattering that they love us so much, but a little frustrating.  I get up around 5 am every morning during the week and I would really like me some extra sleep on the weekends.

Today I noticed something strange.  They didn’t come and wake us up.  When we went downstairs, the TV was on to the Disney Channel and they had poured themselves a bowl of Rice Krispies, getting only a little on the floor.  Thank goodness they didn’t try to get out the milk, but overall I was impressed.  It may not have been the first time they’ve done this (I’m usually long gone by the time they get up) but it is worth noting.

I was happy to get a little extra sleep, but felt a little sad too.  Next they’ll be asking for the car keys!

Yesterday we went up to Frederick, Maryland, to have lunch at a tapas restaurant the Missus heard about called Isabella’s.  It was tasty!  The twins were playing with my little camera.  Here are two pictures.  Adam took one; Tess the other.

The Best Day Ever

Filed under: Adam,Photography,Tessa,Twins — Chris @ 7:15 pm

We drove up to historic Harpers Ferry this weekend on a beautiful day.  We hiked up and down the hills of the town and then had some ice cream before heading home.  Heading up the trail towards Jefferson Rock, viagra sale recipe Tessa and Adam ran out ahead.  They love exploring.  “This is the best day ever!” Adam said.

At the ice cream shop, medical Tessa managed to help the girl behind the counter knock over a bottle of hot sauce.  (I assume the sauce was for the hot dogs and burgers they sell, advice not for the ice cream.)  The bottle broke and splattered Cholula everywhere, including all over the Missus’s shoes.

We drove home with the windows down.

Here are a couple of pictures from our day.

A Brand New Blog!

Filed under: General — Chris @ 11:59 am

It’s a brand new blog!  I’ll try to actually update it regularly.

Previously, generic viagra drugstore I used blogger.com to create my blog, which was then hosted on my own website, cgleason.com.  It worked fine but Blogger wasn’t so happy supporting this mechanism and was updating it in a way I didn’t like.  After some searching, I’ve decided to use WordPress, which is blog software that you install yourself.  Seems to be working okay so far (but it is the first day.)  Isn’t this fascinating?  It is to me….

I’ve decided to keep the name Novitas, a Latin word meaning “newness.”  I first used the name right before the twins were born.  Though they’re almost five years old now, every day is still a new adventure.

The old blog can be found here, just in case anyone is interested.
