Countdown till Christmas





Ok so I just looked at the calendar and there is count them only 25 days till Christmas!!! WOW how did the month of November fly by so fast? Today has been a little crazy. We had a doctors appointment for Hyde today it was his 4month check up. Yippee he is now 17lbs and 26 inch long other wise 90% height and 75% weight. Yep he is a big boy. But he is a wonderful baby. He had to have his normal shots and that didn't make him very happy but he still let me get some errands run. So after the Dr we all ran up to Big Lots to see what kind of things other then the princess clothes we went up there for where on sale for Christmas. Oh and I also needed wrapping paper. So after running around that store for about an hour I took the kids to get some lunch and to the park since we were all the way in Austin way to far to get home and make something before everyone would be eating there own legs off. Then it was time to head home so we could get the van cleaned out so that the Robert could take it to the scout overnight. And we made it just in time. Some weeks I feel like I never see my husband. But he is having a blast and learning a lot. Well so everyone in my house is finally asleep so I better get that way too. Night......

so yeah







So I finally decided to put my own post on here. I just wanted to make it known to one and all that I am a Boston Red Sox fan. As you might have known they did just win the World Series, of which I am extremely happy. I can't remember exactly how long I have been a Red Sox fan. I do know that, at one time, I did say that I liked the Chicago Cubs. I have repented of that. My wife would swear that I would bleed Red Sox colors.

Just to introduce myself, I am the dad of the Whitmer clan. My name is Robert and I am a manager at Reliable Life Insurance. The job is good and it pays well. There are, however, those times that I would rather not deal with some of the hassle that goes along with the job and the position. I guess that is why I get paid the proverbial "big bucks." I can say though that this is the first job/career that I have had that I actually look forward to going to work every day. I don't like leaving my family but it makes it better that I am going to a job that I don't despise.

My hobbies include playing with my kiddos, watching and playing baseball and basketball, limited ps2 time, and keeping up with my Red Sox. I cannot stand football. Don't even ask me to watch it. I know that is not the typical response that you hear from someone living in Texas but I am not a native Texan.

I guess that is all that I have for now. Look for more posts from me later as I get more into this blogging thing.

Halloween!!!

Brody (superman), Hyde as a Jackolantern, Riley as the Bride


Hyde and Riley
Brody trying to fly
Hyde and Brody at the Trunk or Treat.

Sorry there sideways

Robert and Riley in the kitchen carving pumkins.

They turned out really cute. Riley's was in the shape of a spooky cat and Brody had his in the shape of a ghost..

So we ended up with a ton of candy at our house and now who is eatting it I am really good at only letting the kids have 2 a day but me if my fall back. Oh don't have time for a real breakfast but I am starving so grab some candy on your way out or to feed Hyde. I know I am really bad I need to stop hopefully Robert will take it far way or I can get brave and just put it away for later a little at a time.

Ok so halloween is done now its Thanksgiving and then way to fast before I know it it will be Christmas wow where does the time go???????
