Need a smile today? I’ve pulled out one of my all time favorite, smile-inducing posts.
Really and truly. I love this one.
(I wrote this back when I still didn’t know what that mysterious shutter speed button thingy did so the pictures are a wee bit blurry.)
Archives For Nathan
- I got my handy dandy annual report from Word Press today and it gave me the names of my top five commenters from 2013.
- Here they are!
Christmas means a table bedecked in red. Poinsettia. Tree. Candles.
We are leaving in a few minutes to head back home but before we pack up, I wanted to get a few quick pictures posted from yesterday featuring You Know Who.
I am so utterly smitten with this grandson of mine that I am breaking my own rule of not overloading my readers with grand baby pictures.
Sometimes smittenness just wins out.
Meagan posted on Facebook Saturday about the birthing class she and Nathan were scheduled to attend at the hospital that morning. The picture she posted of the two of them just struck me so funny. (They both have such demonstrative faces.)
Today, Nathan turns twenty-four.
I realize that when a son becomes an adult, you don’t make as big a deal over his birthday as you did when he was just a little fella. But I’m feeling extra sentimental today since this is Nathan’s last birthday before his own child is born—a birthday marking the end of one precious era and the beginning of another.
Note: Just wanted to update you on my brother-in-law, Randy, who had a heart attack a week ago. He went into surgery shortly after getting to the emergency room and had a stent placed; he was sent home the next day. His doctor told him to take at least a week off from work but his wife Debbie (my little sister), told him he is supposed to take TWO weeks off. He is listening to his wife!
Here’s a note for you from Debbie: Randy and I would like to extend our heart-felt thanks to all of the wonderful Smithellaneous readers who so kindly let us know you were praying for us after Randy’s recent heart attack. We were amazed that even though you only know as extended family of Becky’s, you took the time to express care and concern–Cindy from Sonoma, CA even sent a card! That’s the kind of stuff that makes the world a better place. :-) Your thoughtfulness means so much–thank you! Randy & Deb Mantik
Every once in a while, I like to take a little trip down memory lane and look at what Smith Life was like back in the day. This is one of my favorite posts from the olden days; enjoy!

Last week, I bought toilet paper. Nine rolls of toilet paper. On sale.
Midweek Miscellany #1
Nathan has started his new job! One of the things he’s already loving about it is that the hours are 8 to 5, Monday through Friday. With Chick-Fil-A, he was working all sorts of strange shifts, some of them twelve hours long and many of them on evenings and Saturday which is Meagan’s day off from teaching. Also, Chick-Fil-A was forty minutes from home and his new job is just TEN minutes from home so his gas tank is a lot happier now.
