Last weekend, LA helped Momma make some M&M covered brownies. Because he's never really had sweets (except for three cupcakes in his life) he didn't really know they were to eat...until Momma offered him one...
...which he thought sounded fun...
..and then loved it! And, wanted "More!" Maybe next time, son.

You already got a sneak peek, but we had the chance to publicly dedicate Boatboy in front our of local church body and family over the weekend. Dedicating him is really much more about us as parents than him. We read him a letter of promises in front of everyone and committed to a number of things as his parents. It was a great (and emotional) time.
The Momma and the Boatboy
The Dadda and the LA. Very funny because you can actually tell what they're both saying.
Aunt Elisha with the guest of honor.
All the family. Thank you again to you all for being there for such a special time for us and Boatboy!
A few things come to mind immediately...
1) Ole Pres' has some GREAT reaction time. Seriously! He's 62 and dodges that soul with insect reflexes! Notice the complete lack of reaction from Prime Minister/President/Important Iraqi guy to Bush's left (screen right).
2) Why does Secret Service take so long to get to the shoe thrower?
3) It's understood the shoe thrower was taking the side of the victims of war in Iraq. So, let's get this straight...one throws shoes to protest violence. Pot calling the kettle black? Not standing up for war here, buy just saying...geesh. Violence begets violence.
If you haven't seen the video, here's one of the first reports we saw by NBC's Brian Williams...
