Hi Little Girl

Hi baby girl. Felt you kick the other day. Your mom grabbed my hand and put it on her belly. It was pretty cool and surreal for me. I had flashbacks of my mom pregnant with one of my brothers and feeling them kick. Now here I am with a child of my own on the way. Pretty neat.

Obviously, we found out that you are a girl. I’m excited about that. There aren’t a lot of girls on my side of the family, which means that between you being the first grandchild and being a girl, you’ll be spoiled rotten. 🙂 I have a few cousins that I think will get a kick out of it too.

By the way, if by the time you are reading this, I haven’t taught you to play baseball, football and gotten you started in your BBQ education, call me out. 🙂

Looking forward to meeting you.

Love Dad.

Mom to be Super Bowl…..

Today is the big game packers vs steelers honestly it doesn’t matter to me who wins. Today to me is a great day to spend with family and friends. The highlights will be of coarse the commercials and let’s not forget the food. Oh the food….mmmmmmm meatballs, little weenies, chips and dip, hot wings and of coarse pulled pork that Alan made yesterday. The fact that I am now in my second trimester I am hungry a lot. Today is going to be all about the food and of coarse football right. 🙂

Preparing for the Superbowl

One of the first things I need to show Noodle is the art of BBQ. Ok, the FIRST thing we will teach him or her will be to love Jesus.

Side note: are we saddling this kid with a bad nickname?

I’m cooking some pulled pork today for the Superbowl party at my parents house tomorrow. I’ll also be making a fresh batch of my BBQ sauce. I’ve had a craving for it lately and this is the perfect excuse to pull the smoker out of the garage.

As soon as I figure out how to do this for a living, I’ll be a happy man.  Suddenly the Pastor’s sermon about work comes to mind.  🙂
