Hopefully, I've got the link right to see the family portraits we had done. So finally, you can see Will.

Thanks for the advice on being an active parent. Truly I do plan to be one. My parents were not, and many things were missed. It's a mistake I am not going to repeat.

Savannah is a beautiful daughter. I tip my hat to you. Dawn and I thought we were neutral to having a boy or girl (we didn't know until delivery), but both of us found out when he was born that we secretly were hoping for a daughter.

Now I know why I liked those pictures, they make me look young! The magic of photography made all the grey in my hair disapear! For there's quite a bit of salt in with that pepper. I'm no grey beard, but I am 37 years of age, and that's not a kid any more. I even have to use hand lotion in the winter now!

Good to see your brand new tractor driver! :-)

I was cleaning out some stuff that I moved to my new office from the old. Came across the pictures taken when we brought, first my son and then my daughter, home. MAN, they grow up FAST!! I had forgotten how small they were - until I got first grandchild (boy's boy).

I don't remember my Dad paying with me, BUT there is a picture of him painting our house when I was around three. I am on a small ladder "painting" too. Of course, it was just water and I was where the paint was dry already. Just one example of how my Dad paid attention to mewhen I was little. And of course I remember all the teaching he did as I grew up. How to use a hammer, how to solder, I was around nine, how to torch weld, and on and on.

Dad was a mechanical engineer but he was also very intrested in many other things. He was the "doctor" of the house. He taught me how to identify many trees, which sometimes amazes people that think fo me only as an engineer. All those teaching times were also "bonding" moments because it made me know my Dad cared enought for me that he would take the time to teach me away from ALL the other things he needed to do.

I played with my son when he was small. I'm sure he dosen't remember but I have a picture of us riding on the back walk when he was around three. Like my Dad with me, the time I spent with Brice was the most important time of my life, excepting the time I spent with my daughter, of course. Brice never gave me any problems when he was a teenager. I feel sure it was the early "investment" paying off.

SO be sure to spend as much time as you can with Will as you can. You will never regret it. And you can not later spend time to make up for the "lost" time when he is little.

Think that is where so many parents today have gone wrong. When I hear of kids in trouble, and someone asks why don't the parents do something, I think "IT IS TOO LATE!" Sort of like trying to correct a crooked building that has been built on a bad foundation.

Best wishes to your family
for the season,

ps, ditto all of this for Charlie in TX. and Congrats, TOO.

You guys have a lot to be proud of - two fine looking families. Larry gave some great advice above. Speaking as the proud father of two fine daughters (ages 18 and 19), I can tell you that Larry hit the nail right on the head: If you spend a great deal of quality time with them from the very beginning, you will be rewarded with great kids. You may have some frustration as they go through various stages, but you will not have any major problems. Keep them involved in activities that allow them to grow and gain self confidence and they will not have the time or desire to get into trouble.

Good luck and enjoy the next 20 years. The time will pass too quickly so savor it.

Merry Christmas Nolan and that is a fine looking family you have to be proud of! I agree with DaBrow though about you not being as cute, but at least I finally have that image of you "coming out of the closet" out of my head that Tyler posted some time ago.:-)

How did you get the young'un to sleep throught the whole session? In my case the baby would always scream through the whole thing.

That's because he'd been up all night squalling and demanding attention. As soon as we got there and started the photo session, he fell *deep* asleep, and couldn't be woken for shucks.

Though, of course, as soon as it was over, he woke back up!
