10th Wedding Anniversary

I was going through a box in the basement and came across a cd with this video of our Wedding Day. The pictures and video are courtesy of my former employer Andy McFarlane at www.leelanau.com. Happy Anniversary to my wife Mary and thanks for 10 amazing years! I love you Mary!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I haven't been posting much here and so it's time to make my annual resolution to post more and to add more updates. You just never know, one of these years it might work. I did post a couple of slideshows to my most recent Picasa photo albums above, so take a peak at the kids building a gingerbread house, decorating the tree and visiting Mackinaw City and Mackinac Island (that was lots of fun!).

My big plan for this year is to lose weight. I'm not talking just 20 pounds or so, I'm talking at least 75 or 80 pounds. I'm going to follow Weight Watchers again as that's how I lost the weight before. Although I have been thinking about officially joining and getting some of the new info.

My family is doing well and the kids are getting big. Mary is as great as ever and we celebrated our 8th year of marriage in October. The kids enjoyed and are enjoying Christmas (we still have one party to go!) with the family and received many great gifts. I got some great gifts too including Nintendo Wii for the entire family. I absolutely love Super Mario Bros. Wii and the kids do too.

May God Bless You in 2010 and be sure to stop back for a visit and check out family pictures and hopefully much more!

Merry Christmas,

Great Aunt Eva celebrates 100th birthday

aunteva100.jpgAunt Eva is my Great Aunt, she is the sister of my Grandpa Herbert Swenson (my mom's dad). Before you say, huh?, I tried writing it a few different ways and they all seemed confusing, so I went with that.

Now if you aren't totally confused, you can pretend to be shocked that myself and my kids have some Swedish heritage as we all tan so well and aren't white as ghosts (heavy sarcasm).

Yes, I am a stubborn Swede and proud of it.

Me procrastinate… never…

One of my biggest faults is procrastination. Mary can talk forever about my procrastination, so when I stumbled upon this article, I was definitely interested...I haven't read it yet, but will later!
