Men Who Kiss Babies


We were singing,

"You stood before creation
Eternity within your hand
You spoke the earth into motion
My soul now to stand.

You stood before my failure
Carried the cross for my shame
My sin weighed upon your shoulders
My soul now to stand.

So what can I say
What can I do
But offer this heart O God
Completely to you..."

Across the church auditorium, Violinist holding Baby Violinist, at that moment gently leaned down and kissed him. I looked away to compose myself.

Valentine's Day, Geek Guy and Buff and Fun all did the exact same thing. Big men leaning over to kiss a tiny baby. Well, Fun didn't really kiss him. Fun is funny about germs. Fun just made a little smuk sound and said, "Hey there, little guy, you're so cute. Whenever ya' ready to go ridin'. 'Kay?"

Valentine Sweetie


A belated Valentine greeting to all.
We stayed in watching Baby Violinist.
Couldn't have wished for sweeter music.

World, meet Baby Violinist.
Roll Kuchen and Violinist are now a family of three.

Welcome Snowy February


So here we have it, February 2nd, Groundhog Day.


And the only creatures I see stirring


is this one.

Looks suspiciously like six more weeks of winter to me.

(Get your helmet on, Buff, even if just working on it.)
