Carpet (ugh)

Well, we decided that we would get new carpet no compliment all of the other things we are doing to our house in preparation for the new addition to our family. We had the "in home estimate" (empire) people out to our house with all of their carpet samples to make sure that the most important member of our family approved of the carpet we were looking at. As you can see below, Captain Gingersnap showed us that the carpet was OK and gave us the green light to proceed.

I just got this sent to me from my pops. It was from one of the times where me, my Dad, and Brother were all able to make it to a skins game via one of pops's friends. We had great times up there enjoying the suite with all it's advantages. This is probably one of the best pictures of the 3 of us from recent times.

Can you hear the sound of the accordion doors?

Thankfully that sound can no longer be heard!! If you had ever seen the accordion doors we had in our hall you would know exactly why they got the nickname. Yesterday I got the time to remove them from the closet and add the new 6 panel folding doors. And a special thanks to Colin for knocking out wall after wall after wall of painting. He even made the doors below look their whitest!!

Redskins Pictures

Well with the skins playing tonight, I thought about some of the great moments at Fedex. The Jets played the Redskins in the preseason a couple years ago and Ashley was able to snag tickets from her uncle right on the visitors tunnel. Ashley and I decided we both needed to represent our colors and represent we did. After the game, Chad even caught a field players glove from D'Brickashaw Ferguson. It was a great night all around!!

Steve Miller @ Wolf Trap

Ashley got us tickets to the Steve Miller Band show at Wolf Trap last night through her work. They pick one concert there every year to go to and what a great show they picked this year. We had an awesome time (it was a little hot), but Steve just put it down!! Below are some clips.

The Nursery

We have been trying to get the house ready for little Jackson Wayne to show up and the biggest part of getting everything ready is his nursery. Our Personal interior decorator (Ashley) has picked out a color and we will be painting this weekend. She also decided that wainscoting would be a great idea. So last weekend, K-Dawg (Kevin Ackert) was kind enough to lend the majority of his weekend to helping make it all happen. We also changed out the old sliding mirror doors in exchange for traditional 6 panel doors. (Please ignore the tools everywhere). A HUGE THANK YOU to K-Dawg for his help man, that would have been impossible to accomplish by myself!!

One day when all the "guys" get together it will be quite a show. Currently Liston, Lilly, Vince, and Parker; with a Jackson slated to show up in about 2 months!!

Bonnie and the Bunch

We went to check out Bonnie Raitt and the Taj Mahal band at Wolf Trap. The McCarron's met us out there and we had a great night under the stars listening to some awesome tunes.

So somthing got into me today and I decided it was time to purchase a Blue-Ray DVD player. I ended up buying this Samsung one that can stream directly from Netflix. Well naturally I came home and signed up for Netflix. What a wonderful pairing. I have spent the last hour telling it my favorite movies and TV shows.

Now for more random pictures...

It Starts

Well, I have finally caved and am going to ditch my efforts to run my own website. With Ashley and I expecting Jackson soon, we have decided to adopt the much easier format from blogspot!! Stay tuned for pictures of us and the new little guy when he comes around. Probably a little bit of Jersey and the Captain as well.
