Just living. Pensacola, Gator football, and family

So much has happened since I last posted. I got a second job working at Publix. We need to make more money to help pay for getting a new car and Riley's speech class. It is an easy, fun, and nice place to work.
Baby Girl is starting to walk now. We will have to put up a video recording when I get one. She is always smiling and doing so much. She is such a blessing. We finally have turned to putting her to sleep in her bed instead of using the swing. Big moment!
Also we got the all of the family going in the bracket. I like how we have Curt, Carmen, and Grandpa joining us. I hope to see them fill out a bracket every year! It is fun for the family! Right now Kentucky is dominating everyone. I still hope for a random underdog to win the tournament but it is not looking that way as Kentucky is mowing through everyone!
Gator football is about to be back! Gosh I hope we do well this season. It is embarrassing with how bad we were on the field. We need to win 8 or 9 games. Score some points! Florida needs to get back before we get passed up and end up like Michigan! Offense needs to average 10 points a quarter and we will win the SEC EAST! Defense wins championships but I want offense.
It is has been a nice change being here in Pensacola. Got a lot of drama at work right now but it will pass and we should be better soon. Sometimes people just do not work well together. I am trying to figure it all out and I will soon enough! Once I do then work will be a lot easier! I sometimes just want to find a new job to get away but realize that at every job you have these problems. You just need to work them out the best you can.

It was nice having Mom, Kat-Kat, and Cooper come to the house. I hope all of the family can come visit and take in the nice life of Pensacola. It is a great time and I hope we can be here long term. I hope a few people retire soon and our contract gets renewed for another 5-10 years! Working for Sodexo is nice but it is also nice to have Publix on the side. We will see where it all takes us! Food and Healthcare is the fields to work in. Everyone needs food and a doctor!
Family prayers that things start running smooth! Prayers that people get a long, Prayers that people do their jobs. Prayers that people stay healthy and work hard!
I also have been reading more and spending less time gaming at night! I am trying to get a balance! I need to balance my time with work, family, work other job, sports, games, church, and books!

Enjoy the pictures. Enjoy the blog update! We are still here in Florida but it feels so far away sometimes! Use those free flights and come see us!

Family Fun time #tbt

Riley loving that Drink!
Loving with his Aunt Leah!
Gator Parking. We will miss it. Riley would have been a big help!
Riley's first day of preschool! He is loving it there. Tomorrow Alison will try to sign him up for another Preschool next year VPK or something like that.
He loves playing with Leah. He also loved those mats to color on. They are great and very easy to use!

Baby Girl and P-town update

Baby Girl and Mom on facetime

She loves being in bed with her brother watching the ROKU

Just some random cute pics of the kids. Work is well. I am making the changes necessary and will get everyone up to speed. I just need to switch to a better system and then I will be able to really track things and run it smoothly. I just need to find a flag football group to play with and I will be set here in Pensacola. Alison is doing Volleyball with me and she is getting better. I like that we have that sport to share and she is enjoying it. I want to get to a point where we are the Dynamic Duo against everyone else! Things are well in Pensacola and I only hope for them to continue to improve!

Baby Girl is 1

Baby girl turned 1 today! We love her so much. We are so glad that she joined our family this time last year, even if she made it so I had to watch the Super Bowl in the hospital last year! We had a great birthday weekend. Alison's sister Amanda came to celebrate!
She enjoyed her cupcakes!
She is such a happy baby! Whenever she gets excited she starts squealing. She sounds like a baby dinosaur!

Toledo football vs Oregon football and Playstation2 vs XBOX360 NCAA football

Big win for Toledo. This is the start of our 3rd season. 105-27 win over #1 Oregon at the time. Aggressive offense and swarming defense. The Attack mentality proved to much for the Ducks. Stewart started his Heisman campaign by gaining over 450 yard receiving along with 9 touchdowns. Look for him to carry the Toledo offense to new heights this year. Next week Toledo will be playing TCU. The Rocket's only loss last year was to TCU so they are looking to bring it. Look for this to be a shootout!

So this is from my Playstation2 NCAA FOOTBALL 2011. The game cost me $5 compared to buying the XBOX360 version for $50. The PS2 version is so much better than the new version. For this game newer is not better.Every year the fans of this game wanted more but EA would not give it to them. Little did they realize the older games on the older game systems had the "perks" they wanted. I remember for some reason fans wanted to be able to create a player and give him long hair or dreadlocks. XBOX360 said they could not do that because it was to much pn the system. Well 4 years later they finally did it and they made the fans happy. If you look, the PS2 version for $5 has had it in the game for years. Everything that the fans loved was already on the PS2 and not the XBOX360.

Toys and Ohio State

Riley just being silly with his toys. He just gets into everything. I now understand why my Dad always wanted to come home to a clean house! Riley does his best to make sure his toys are all out on display!

A picture of Taylor taken a little while ago. You like the Gator bow. She is our cute baby girl!
This pictures pretty much sums up the night for Oregon. Ohio State was able to run wild and went onto win 42-20 over Oregon. Oregon tried to shed the soft label after beating down FSU but will only find themselves labeled soft as Ohio State ran all over them. The playoff committee got it right putting Ohio State into the playoffs. Urban Meyer now has his SEC team in a weak BIG-10. Look for Ohio State to be a consistent playoff contender as long as Urban is around. It is very hard for programs like Oregon to recruit the players that it takes to win a national title. I have always felt Oregon players are to nice. The teams that keep winning like Alabama, Auburn, FSU, and Ohio State....their players have a little nasty to them. Oregon players help up opposing players on the other team after a play. Auburn players try to throw you down or land a punch after the play. Just different styles of football all over the country. Name the last team in college football with out players that have a little nasty to them? I think the playoff committee got it right and it should be interesting to see how it all shakes out next year.
Hopefully Florida's new coach knows how important it is to beat Georgia. Beat Georgia, Tennessee, and FSU...then we will be happy!

Gators win and Riley loves pictures

Gators got a much needed win over ECU in their bowl game. Muschamp is gone and the new coach is in. I am tired of seeing the offense go 3 and out so many times. We need to make it a goal to average at least 10 points a quarter. If we can do that then we will be unstoppable! Our defense is what won us the game. #GatorNation is ready for next season. Until then I will give updates on my NCAA FOOTBALL GAME!

Riley's new favorite thing is to take pictures with Alison's phone. But as we all know as parents. When kids use your things, they break them! I just want to start off by saying Sorry to my parents for all the things I broke and extra money I cost them. Being a parent gives me greater respect for all the things my parents did for us! Thanks! The kids broke Alison's phone so $60 later we got it fixed.

Went to Cici's Pizza for family night! We had a BOGO coupon! So for $7 we fed the whole family and I ate a whole buffalo chicken pizza! Good times. Having Pizza is our Friday family tradition!
Championship game this Monday! Who do you got? I am wanting Oregon to win but a little piece of me is okay with Ohio State winning. I know both offenses have been explosive but in championship games they usually take a backseat to the defense. Florida and Offense both had amazing offenses in 2008 but final score was 24-14. Auburn and Oregon in 2010 was suppose to be a 49-52 kind of score but ended up being 22-19. So we will just have to see how this game turns out. I am still hoping that Oregon changes their uniforms to have a little green or yellow in them instead of all white! Oregon you are better than that!
