The New Lappy!

Yesterday was a wonderful day. I am fortunate enough to have a wife that love me so much and bought me a computer. But not just any computer! A Macbook Pro 15" the Zeus of Mac Laptops. It is so pretty and shinny and I just can not say enough nice things about it. I was so gitty when I got to take it home and looks at all the pretty button. How could we afford such a purchase do you ask? Well as most of you know Lena now works for Granite Credit Union. They have lots of little perks that make it so awesome to work there. One of them is a no interest computer loan. So when we found that out we both jumped at the chance. Lena got to upgrade her little lappy as well. We got her some ram and a new battery. I am so grateful we have been so blessed with good jobs and each other. Yeah for new toys!

Another "Great Kissing Versary!" 2 Years

Lena and I were married 2 years ago last sunday. We had a celebration this weekend.

While I will leave the good part of the story to Lena. I will comment on a few things that stood out in my mind. We had a lot of Adventures this weekend. I have told Lena that she married me because she likes adventure. She quickly responded "that is true, but it is also because you are such a good kisser" So that sounded pretty good to me. So that is why we called this the "Great Kissing Versary!"

Lena also gave me some cool stuff for our celebration. I got a book (wink wink) and something for Lena to wear (wink wink) I think there is some other stuff...but I am sorry sweetie I can not remember what it was...GIfts are not the most important thing that happened....or the first thing on my mind. Oh it was an awesome picture frame that had a picture of us in it and Lena etched on the glass "Always" it was awesome!

Happy Kissing Versary Sweetie!

End of the Semester! And start of a new one!

So it is the end of the Semester so I thought I would post a couple of the paintings that I have done over the past school year!

I added the one of Malefient and the Star Night in Gotham just because people love those ones and they are hanging in my home. The rest I did during this semester. All of the landscapes were done on location, Also the Darth Vader was done from life. The rest where still life photographs. The comic book page is not my favorite because I had to rush that project quite a lot but it is of 2 of my best friends. They posed for my and I was very grateful. The last one is from when we went to Zion National Park about a month ago.

Tell me what you think...and which one you like the best!

Yesterday Lena and I went and saw Ironman. And I have to say it was Excellent! Most superhero movies as of late have been lacking! But they really raised the bar on this one. They did a very good job with this movie. I dont want to give anything away so I won't go into to many details. Robert Downing Jr was perfect for this role. He was incredible. Afterward Lena said she now has a crush on Robert and Ironman is now one of her favorite superheroes. In short GO SEE THIS MOVIE IS WAS AWESOME!!!!
