Domestic Chores (Payin the Rent)

This week I give you a little peek into my weekly chores.  With the new little guy around, Mom and Dad are too busy to keep up with cleaning the house.  I'll have to do this for a couple more years until my apprentice takes over.

In case you haven't noticed, I also like to point out at random intervals that Trent has no teeth !

Too Much Change

Officially a Big Brother !

Not sure if you heard yet, but I'm now a big-brother!  Trent Adam Stafford (I still call him Nub) was born last week on Thursday, May 31st at 2:59pm.
I'm way too busy to write a whole lot this week, but thought I'd show you some pics of me meeting him and bringing him home to live with us.
Trent got Alden just what he had been hoping for - A Yellow Garbage Truck!
